Hi my Stampin’ Friends,
today’s tutorial was a request I had from a lovely lady in the Netherlands called Sietie. The Box needed to be reinforced and measure approximately 17 x 13 x 4cm to hold 10 cards with envelopes in plastic bags. I took up this challenge and indeed it definitely was, due to the fact that Cardstock measures either A4 or 12 x 12″ (30.5cm).
I sized up all the measurements and you will see from the attached video that it was a conundrum! I am so proud of my Box and had to decorate it with a beautiful Waterlily that I created using the So Succulent Framelit Dies, which I find amazing. They cut out like an absolute dream using my Big Shot and are my favourite framelit dies at the moment. Mind you, I now have so many favourites!
I had to use two sheets of 12 x 12 Cardstock for the base of the reinforced Box and one sheet for the Lid and it is indeed strong enough to hold 10 cards with envelopes easily. I hope Sietie loves it too.
I used Pool Party and Night of Navy 12 x 12 Cardstock to make the Box and decorated it with the By the Shore DSP as I love those little Starfish on it, so cute!! I used my Layering Circles Framelits Dies and the pretty Lace Doilies to sit my Waterlily on, you could say like a Waterlily Pad!! Ha, ha!!
It is my intention to make a video tutorial to show how I made the waterlily so don’t forget to subscribe to Artypapercrafters.com to receive it in your Email Inbox very soon!
