Gift Box Punch Board makes boxes in all sizes

Friday night I had a class where I taught how to use the Gift Box Punch Board. I had everyone pick a color cardstock and we followed the step by step instructions on the board. We then decorated the box in a beach theme.

Here's a quick video from Stampin' Up! to show you how to use the punch board.


Here's one of the boxes we did at the class on Friday.




The size for this box is 2 x 2 x 4 inches. I used some retired ribbon to tie it all up. The stamp set is By The Seashore 126532 clear $16.95. Paper is Pool Party Coordination. I sponged the edges after I put it together. I used Fast Fuse to put it together but Sticky Strip will work great too.

Here's another cute box using the Curvy Keepsake Framelits. I love this box design and it comes together so easy. As a fan of Alabama I needed to make this box.



I used Cherry Cobbler for the tassel, a bit of the silver paper, chalk pen to write Roll Tide on Basic Black paper and then bought the houndstooth paper and A paper at a local scrapbook store.

Oh and I found this cutie a few weeks ago:

 
This is the 3rd baby turtle that I found this year. They are so tiny. I love turtles!

Tie Dye Technique is fun to do

Here's a quick video of me doing the tie dye technique. I hope you like it. I had to hold the phone and "paint" the alcohol at the same time.

I'm also entering the card I made in the SUO Challenge. Visit their website to see all the awesome projects that people post.


I used Pacific Point and Coastal Cabana ink on Whisper White cardstock. Make sure you really ink up the paper. The darker the better. You can apply it however you want but for this one I put the lighter color in the centers and darker color around them.


 
Poor some rubbing alcohol in a bowl and use a paint brush to apply alcohol to your cardstock. Trace around the circles and add drops and dabs here and there.




Watch the video to see how I did this.

 
Here's what it looks like when it's done.


Then you can create a card with the finished piece.
 



I also did a few different ones. Take a look.

 
I made these two cards. I think they turned out cute.
