Welcome to the
were we show you our projects
made with the Club Scrap June kit.
I hope you arrived here from
and seen her inspiration for this lovely kit.
My project for today is the wonderful box frame card.
I have seen these around lately and just love looking at them,
so why not try these myself! I started making 3 of
them in red of white and blue.
So here is the tutorial:
To make a box you need a 12 x12 inch piece of paper
and a score board (if you have one). Score all sides
at: 1 - 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 - 3 inch.
Now score at one side of the border only until the 2nd scoreline
at 4 and 8 inch. Now turn the paper 180 degrees and do the
same. So this is only at 2 sides.
Take a scissor and start cutting the 3 x 3 inch scquares at all corners.
For the final cut, co to the 4 inch line and cut untilthe
2nd score line, then cut diagonally until the 3rd line.
Do the same at the 8 inch score and on the other side of the paper.
Now you can fold all the score lines towards the inside
and you see the box starting to form.
Best way to glue is first to glue the long parts
and then the part with the corner.
To make these boxes standing up,
you need a strip of paper: 6 x 12 inch and fold
at 6 inch. Glue half of the card to the back of the box
and now you have a way to have the box stand up.
You can also use this as a card to write somithing
for the person you give this box too.
Now you want to see the result:
Here are all 3 together. All pictures inside
the box are 4 x 4 inch and are taken on
the beach of Noordwijk, The Netherlands.
Box 1: I just love the crab that came with
this kit as a rubber stamp. So much fun to
use.I added some glossy accent to his body
to give him a shiny shield.
And if you have had a look at my blog yesterday,
You have seen this as a sneak peek. It is hidden
behind this crabby box to wish you all
a very happy Summer and to show you
how you can use this box as a card.
You add the image to the backof the stand.
Box 2: swimming in the see fits
perfect with the vintage swimming suits.
For the Artist challege there were handmade embellishments
and here is another of my button flowers.
You see the instructions here.
Box 3: Picture perfect.
I love this picture and I just created this 3d scene
with elements of the kit.The beach chair is a die I have.
