EBONY AND IVORY TREASURE BOX WITH AMAZING PAPER GRACE


Hi craft friends

Gifting is a wonderful way to express happiness, bless and show gratitude. If the gifts are, specially wrapped or presented in unique manner, not only it increases the value of the gift but also conveys your efforts to the receiver of the gift. 

Hence I like to give gifts beautifully and there is no better way than to create a beautiful box using dies from Amazing Paper Grace. 

I am so thankful to Becca for giving me these dies. 

Today I am showcasing an ebony and ivory half circle box decorated with the ornate dies and flowers Becca Feeken. 

You can check her dies here. 

Here are the pictures of the finished box followed by a step by step instructions and photos to make this box. 












Step by Step Photo Instruction



Cut black card stock 8 " x 12 " and make a score line
 at 2 1/2 inches on the short side.
Turn the paper and place the Grand Pocket die with 
the stitched line a little below the scored line. 
Make an outline drawing of the die piece. 
Place the die in opposite direction and extend 
the drawing to get a shape like above.



Emboss the die piece front and back on grey card stock using the Spellbinders die cutting 
machine and the embossing plates and cut along the edge with
scissors. Make two such pieces.
Also cut out the black piece from previous step.


Cut two pieces of die cut with the centre attached by placing the die on the 
front and back of card stock.


From the grand pocket die, cut 4 pieces of die cut from grey card stock and 8 pieces from white card stock. Align them offsetting a little to get two pieces like this. 
Trim the base by 1/2 inch.





Cut out border die cuts from grey and white card stock 
and align them together and adhere.



Using an oval piece as reference cut out the inner and top and base layer.





Adhere the die cut pieces and the oval layer without flap on the top.


Cut one piece of black card stock strip 12" by 2 1/2" (A)
One strip 12" by 3 " (B)
One black pattern paper strip 12" by 2 1/2". (C)
Adhere the A strip on B strip leaving a half inch gap at the base .
Cut this gap as zig zag as shown. 
Adhere piece C on the front.







Adhere the whole piece along the oval edge at the base , turning the strip as we 
move to the other end. Adhere the inner oval piece inside the base to cover the cut edges.




Cut two oval die cut  in white card stock from Picot Petite ovals die
and one piece in black card stock from the mat ovals die from the same set.

Add a piece of oval vellum at the back and add double sided tape as shown above.


Assemble the oval piece on the top.

Caring Thoughts Floral Card using Amazing Paper Grace

 

Hi Crafty Friends,


I am super excited to share with you my first Floral Card made with the Amazing Paper Grace dies by Becca Feeken. I am so thankful to Becca for having me in the team and I am all ready to share and inspire you all with my projects.


Today, I have a card adorned with pretty blooms resting upon the ornate dies. This card has a wonderful sentiment and can be used for anyone who needs some love and care. Don’t we all need t be patted and hugged from time to time?  The card here, will surely calm and bring peace to someone dear.






I am so thankful to Becca for providing me with these dies and I loved creating my card with them.


To make this card, I cut a vanilla cream pastel card stock 5” by 7” and using the Candlewick Ovals etched dies , I made inlaid die cut on the card paper without cutting out the ovals. For this, I just used the biggest designer oval die without using the outer cutting oval die.



Then I used the Double Halo Oval etched dies and cut out 2 die cut frames from white card stock. I also cut another same piece in gold card stock. I adhered the gold die cut between the two white die cuts just offsetting by a mm . Then I placed an oval pattern paper with script design as a mat layer for the Double Halo frame. I adhered the whole piece  in the centre of the Candlewick oval frame.



Then I followed the same method as above to make four corner die cuts from the Double Halo collection and adhered them on the four corners of my card front.

Next, I created a die cut frame from the insert die from the Double Halo set using gold and white card stock and adhere the piece to the right of the bigger oval.

The whole piece is then adhered on a little bigger white card stock. I added a gold and white mat layer under this panel to get a three layered border all around. Finally I adhered my card panel on a white card base measuring 5.5 inches by 7.5 inches.

I stamped the sentiment with black ink from the SDS-054 Vintage Elegance Giving Occasions Stamp and die set and used the label to cut out. I placed this in the small oval as shown in the card.The flowers are made using the S6-050 Cinch and Go flowers etched die set. The leaves are hand cut from green paper. I arranged the flowers and leaves to finish the card.




TipAdhering two die cuts together gives stability to the design, giving them a beautiful dimensional look.
