idea I told you about yesterday that I had in my mind for my Thailand
swaps, worked out beautifully yesterday.
It’s a real JanB card in as
much as it’s clean and simple i.e. less is more!
I’ve prepared all the
card bases, the two layers, and completed the stamping.
All that I have left to do
is to adhere the cards together, and make a video.
It’ll be quite a short
video, but it will show which step you take first!
I found it, and had forgotten that my deisgn had the seams at
either side of the top flap rather than on the bottom of the box which
is the “normal” way to make boxes!
There are two advantages of this
style of box.
Secondly, the base of the box
is more secure as there aren’t any seams there!
always practice making my projects before making videos.
When I started on this box, I
did get somewhat carried away with them!
I found I had so many options
with the Designer Series Papers (DSP) that were available for me to choose from, I wanted one
in every design!
took a piece of 3″ x 3″ cardstock to check that cards that size would
fit into the box.
They fit beautifully, but I don’t have any 3″ x 3″
envelopes to check them, but I’m 99% certain that cards and envelopes that
size will fit in.
added a footnote under the video to amend something I’d said during the
(Oh, how I miss not being able to put messages on the
I didn’t notice it at the time, but I said the box
would be ideal for a new baby!
Obviously I meant a new baby gift!
I’m waiting for my delivery from UPS at lunchtime today, so I can get my customers’ Thank You gifts wrapped and posted before I fly off on Saturday!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
