I decided to make a crafter gift box. This image fits the theme perfectly. I am constantly doing craft trades as well as going to event (which are on hold for the time being for obvious reasons). This couldn't be a better idea for my next trade. I figure this would be a wonderful gift for the lady who puts together our trades and events. She puts a lot of effort into these and so getting a little something is always nice. Had purchased a paper pack from Echo Park called Teen Spirit Girl. I found a cute 80's kind of themed paper that was absolutely perfect since the image is that of teen girl.
Here we go. Below you will find the listing of items you will need for this craft. This is a craft I made using Cricut. I will link my project below. You will need to purchase the image for yourself in order to be able to use. this.
Let's Get Crafty!
Once all of the images are colored in. Start with the three sentiments. I made one in each color to match up with the colors on the Teen Spirit Girl cardstock. Layer up the drop shadow with the image using liquid glue.
Prepare the sentiments, banners and images by adding 1/4" foam tape to the back of the cards.
Time to work the box. Begin by folding all along the score lines. Use a bone folder to make crisp creases. You will add glue to the tab and lay it flat to fold over the section that will be adhered to the tag. This will make lining thing up much easier.
Next, add glue to the tabs at the bottom of the box and the tab on the fold over section. fold over and press down with a bone folder to apply pressure.
Add an embellishment to the corners of the Main image with some purple glitter brads. Once this is done, peel off the backing of the foam tape and adhere it to one of the sides of the popcorn box. Make sure it is about 1/2" from the top.
In past events we usually give away some embellishments to other attending. This is a great gift for others to use in card making, scrapbooking, or gift giving. I personally like to start with the easiest. In this case the tags. Glue the color piece and the drop shadow together using liquid glue.
Now use some pastel mini brads to place through the hole. Since it extends pas the tag itself, trim off one of the brad arms with wire trimmers. Finally add some zots to the back and adhere to a 2" strip of white cardstock
With the tags set, now you can decorate the carrier with a folder over tab that I attached using a stapler. If you have decorative color staples, this would add a nice touch as well. The decorative tab will be added to all of the carriers.
Next are the bows. gold over the bows to the center and adhere with liquid glue or a glue gun (that will be left up to your pretty little fingers). Next attach the bow backing and then the center wrap.
Now for the rosette. I love using rosettes because they are a really cute embellishment that can make any craft really stand out. Begin by folding the rosette a at the score lines accordion style. You should have two of each color. Attach them together with liquid glue end to end, to form a circle.
Using a hot glue gun, add a dollop of glue to the center of the rosette and add the scallop circle to the front of the rosette and hold in place so that it dries flat. Then remover the rosette from the non-stick surface and add a scallop circle to the back to clean this up.
Here is what your end product will look like. Using crinkle paper filler will help to keep your items in place. You can load this up with some crafty items or crafty treats (chocolates are my personal favorite).
