Technique Tuesday

Welcome to another Technique Tuesday! I have a bunch of ideas ready to go for a few new videos but my schedule has been keeping me away from the crafting studio lately! Keep an eye out for a new video next week!

For today's technique we'll be looking at how to create this darling paper drawer and card set. This is a super easy project and the box and drawer are very easy to create. (Even for me, who is painfully number challenged!!)
You can view complete directions and a video here on Splitcoaststampers. I used this beautiful nature-themed paper from Kasier Craft to decorate my box and to use on the four cards. And yes, we have this beautiful paper in stock!

Be sure to check out the video and try making one of these boxes yourself...wouldn't this be a perfect Christmas gift?! Love!!

Technique Tuesday

I know, I know, it's not even close to being spring (oh but it will be soon...although not soon enough!) but I just had to share this darling box that is made from five 4"x4" coasters. I ordered these coasters from an online store (be prepared, you typically need to buy these in bulk!) but you can use free drink coasters that you get at restaurants, just ask your waitress for extras!

All that you need to complete this project is some designer paper, ribbon, a Crop-a-dile, and some glue. You can find full directions and a video here.

Once my box was finished I filled it up with mini Milky Way bars...yum! Wouldn't this be a perfect project for favors, mini Easter baskets, gift boxes, you name it! Why not give this project a try today? Wholly Scrap! has a wide variety of papers and ribbons to get you started!!

Technique Tuesday

Thanks to our crazy October snowstorm this past weekend and being without power, I'm sharing an older project today. This is called a 2, 5, 7, 9 box, which is made out of one piece of 8.5 x 11 piece of paper! These are great little boxes that are super easy to create and perfect for small gifts or favor boxes. This box is decorated with a digital image from Tiffany Doodles. The paper I used on this project is from Little Yellow Bicycle, which is last year's line, but we do have this year's winter and holiday line in the store now!! Enjoy the video!
