Sweet / Candle Gift Box Card - Tutorial.

Good afternoon!
Yes, that's right I am actually back for my second post of this week, ok ok, don't fall off your chair in shock lol! ;)
I have been busily uploading some of my DoCrafts demonstration samples and as I am about to upload some examples of the currently popular Gift Box Card I wanted to upload my own set of instructions and a diagram for making them.
You can also see my finished samples further down the post.


So as you can see it really is a very simple process, just 6 simple score lines and then a couple of cuts and there you have it!
If anyone is in the Ipswich area then I will be demoing these cards on Sat 28th at The Range and Sat Feb 11th at Bypass Nurseries if you would like to see a practical tutorial too. :)

Ok so on to my samples, this first one is my original attempt at this technique and has been made into a Thank You card with chocolates inside and features the Hot Diggity Dog range of products.



My second sample uses the adapted instructions for tea light candles and uses the Moments of Faith range...


... and this last picture shows that you do not have to add an aperture and uses one of my favourite products, the Tatty Ted layered die.


I hope this tutorial is of use to anyone who stops by and sees it, I would love to see any cards made using the instructions. Don't forget to check both of my DoCrafts galleries for updates using the new products all this month and in February too. Ni. :) x

I do like this idea very much and I think I may have a go when I've got a minute. I love the finished articles. I think I have just missed your demo days in Norwich, I was hoping to come along tomorrow but I got the dates in a muddle. Never mind, I have bookmarked this page so I can find you again.
