Their paper is perfect for creating boxes because it’s heavy enough to carry the weight.     Hexagon Box Tutorial Start with two pieces of 12×6 double sided cardstock. Score them horizontally at 3, 6 and 9. Turn the paper and score vertically at 5.     Cut on the four score lines until the horizontal score line to create tabs.     Fold all the score lines. Apply glue on one of the squares on the edge of the paper.     Attach the two pieces of paper by overlapping the two edge squares.     Repeat on the other side to create the box.     Place the box on a 12×12 paper and trace the hexagon shape with a pencil. Cut it out.     Apply …

Spring Tags for Scrap and Craft DT

Hi dear crafty friends! I don’t know what’s the weather’s like where you live but here spring is in full swing. Today I want to share with you two Spring Tags for Scrap and Craft DT.     Spring Tags for Scrap and Craft DT Someone asked me awhile back about tags. They asked me what do I do with the tags I make and why do I create them in the first place. Well… for me tags are similar to cards. It’s a small project that I can create in a short time but still feel like I’m creating. Unlike cards, I think tags can be used for many more things. I use my tags as gift tags, add-ons, embellishments for layouts, mini album inserts and as cards too.           I created these tags by first layering papers from the Lemon Craft House of Roses 6×6 paper collection. Then I added a piece of lace, …
