Small Box made with the Envelope Punch Board.


I found the tutorial for this box from ChicknScratch on You Tube.
My box opens on the bottom, since I added the geometric corner detail.


I heat embossed the brown circle and attached it with a dimensional sticker.



Here you can see the bottom closure.

It makes a nice little box.

Birthday Crate.


I've seen a crate with a lid and back on Pinterest, but no instructions. So I designed my own. I made the lid separate, which worked out better. I used crumbled up plastic wrap and dipped it in my ombre ink pad. Then I just randomly added some UTEE to make the colors "pop".

Inside...


For the back piece I used cardboard and wrapped it in tissue paper.


For the front I made a small bag. I stamped the background in the front only.


I also made a mini clipboard to attach the "30"




It turned out pretty good and it was not too difficult to make.

Business Card Holder.


I made some crates for Easter and thought a smaller version would be just right for business cards.

Small Chest.


While back, I found a video and template for these small chests at: Coul'Heure Papier.



These took a bit to make, but the result is worth it. For the buckle you just use a soda tab.



 In her video she showed a different technique on how to make the round part. I had trouble doing it this way, so I figured out a different way to make it. I remembered that did baskets similar to this, and that was a lot easier. You just have to add a 2inch piece to the one side of the lid, and cut it in 1/2inch strips.


 On the hinge I added some metal tape to reinforce the lid to the box.




Here I used old dictionary pages for the corners.


On this belt, I put some "stitches" and UTEE on it.

The more you make the easier it gets, and don't use thick cardstock.

Small Backpack (Kleiner Schulranzen).


I found a template at: kreativblogbyclaudi.blogspot.de
I just had to change the measurements to inches.

On the sides I just used my stamp.


I wanted to add my grandson's name, so I just hang it on the back where it can be removed.



On the closure I used the word window punch and the "O"s from my alphabet dies.


I didn't use anything to keep it shut. I had tied it shut for a while and when I took the string off it stayed shut.




On the inside I added some candy for him.
