Petal Passion Embellishment Earrings for a Silver Advancement

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a gift I made for one of my team members, Amie, who promoted to Silver last month! I am so proud of her and all of her achievements.

I made these Silver earrings using the Petal Passion Embellishments. Then I was thinking, how am I going to send them across to the other side of the country safely. So I made this gift holder using the Envelope punch board and put the earrings inside. When you open it up, the earrings slide up. The silver ribbon is retired, but it was perfect for my project.

Gift Card Holder with EPB

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you some gift ideas created using the Envelope Punch Board (EPB)!

I am using Crisp Cantaloupe and Strawberry Slush cardstock as they are my favourite 2013-2015 In Colours and I will be so disappointed when they retire shortly.

The base card is Crisp Cantaloupe with a layer of Strawberry Slush then some Designer Series Paper Stack called All Abloom.

Here is the Gift Card Holder in the closed position.

I love the All Abloom DSP Stack and the little sentiment on the punched labels and the flower with the rhinestone finishes it off!

I have used Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green card stock for the box lid and base, and the Trim the Tree DSP Stack to make the baby bon bons with the Envelope Punch Board (EPB).

Each bon bon fits one chocolate Lindt ball…. well who doesn’t love a little chocolate at this time of year?!

I finished off the top of the box with the Spiral Flower Original die in coordinating card stock and glued it to the top!

Gift box for Chocolates

Hello Crafters,

Today I share with you a cute gift box which will fit inside 6 Ferrero Rocher chocolates inside (who doesn’t love receiving chocolates!) and of course I don’t have any chocolates left to put inside my box to show you!!!!

Gift Box

To make this box, you need 2 pieces of 8″ x 8″ cardstock and the Envelope Punch Board (EPB).

For the Base:

Take the 1st piece of card, place it in the EPB at 2 5/8″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 2 5/8″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 2 5/8″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 2 5/8″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees so you are back at the start. Now line up the scoreline with the score guide on the EPB and punch and score. Rotate 90 degrees and repeat on all 4 sides.

Gift Box

For the Lid:

Take the 2nd piece of card, place it in the EPB at 2 3/4″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 3 1/2″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 2 3/4″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees, place at 3 1/2″ punch and score.

Rotate 90 degrees so you are back at the start. Now line up the scoreline with the score guide on the EPB and punch and score. Rotate 90 degrees and repeat on all 4 sides.

Fold all the scorelines. Holding each longways, cut up on each end to the first scoreline. This will fold in to the form the corners of the box.

Glue the box Base together and then line it with a piece of 4 2/8″ x 3 1/8″ piece of Designer Series Paper.

Glue the box Lid together, but before lining it, add a piece of 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of Designer Series Paper to the top.

Gift Box

Adding the ribbon: starting on the inside centre of the lid, add some glue or fast fuse, and also up the inside of the lid. Then place the ribbon on top of this and up and over the top of the lid to the other side and adhere the same way. Do the same on the other end. Cut and extra small piece to tie in the centre in the knot and trim the ends.

To finish it off,  line the lid with a piece of 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Designer Series Paper.

And you have a magnificent gift box of chocolates for that special someone in your life!

Gift Card Holder

Hello Crafters,

Anyone out there who never knows what to buy friends and family for gifts? Me too!

So here is my new gift idea ~ a gift card, so the recipient can choose exactly what they want.

I used the Envelope Punch Board to create the tabs for closing this gift card holder.

Here is another one!

How gorgeous are these? I am loving them and I am in the process of making a few in different colours, so when a special birthday comes around, all I need to get is the gift card.

Happy Australia Day

Hello Crafters,

Happy Australia Day to everyone plus I would like to wish my dad a very happy birthday on this wonderful sunny Melbourne day!

My girls and I will be heading over to dad’s shortly to help him celebrate his birthday with a yummy lunch, but first I had to share with you the box envelope I made to put his card in and the tickets we got him for his birthday. The Envelope Punch Board (EPB) has become a much loved tool in my house since it became available through Stampin’ Up! in October.

EPB

Seeing as my dad loves the ocean, almost as much as he loves his golf (I made a golf card!) I thought I would use some of the High Tide Designer Series Paper from the new Occasions catalogue which is available for purchase in only 2 more days!

I also used the By the Tide Stamp Set for the images.

and here is a close up of the detail

EPB

I hope you are all having a wonderful Australia Day and long weekend, and I look forward to showing you some more items in the next few days.
