Heartfelt Creations Wednesday brings you...."Just for You" gift box..

Hi, today I have for you something quick and easy. 
This wonderful gift box designed by Mirsia Job brought out by Heartfelt creations
Always a must have for those little favour treats.

Find the design paper with the white spots on it. Taking the die for the gift box, die cut this from the design paper x 4. Make sure all the fold lines are folded before putting the box together. Taking the card stock and the flower and leaf part of the die, cut this x 6. Cut the box top side panels x 4 from the same card stock. Adhere the panels to the box sides. The extra 2 flower and leaf panels, trim the flowers and leaves away. Give shape to these using the flower shaping tools. Adhere to the front of the box panels. Stamp and die cut the banner “Just for you” using the pink embossing powder and white card stock. Bring shape to the flowers of the banner. Adhere this to the box front using double-sided 3d foam tape or squares for height. Make a triple bow and tie a ribbon around the box top. Secure with the hot glue gun in place. Add a flower to the bowknot and the remaining leaves under the bow. Add the bling stones to the flower centers and to finish apply the diamond stickles to the flowers on the sentiment banner.

To make a tea light box

Cut the box at the fold line for the shaping of the lid. Take the lace boarder from the same collection. Die cut enough to go around the edge of the tea box. Adhere to the box edge...then adhere the box sides together.
Place a electric tea light in the box for safety.

Gala Glitz-Teal, Water Mister, Hole pricking tool, Dutch Doobadoo modeling paste, Spatula, Crafters Workshop 12 x 12 template TCW261 ART IS,. Inks: Jet Black Archival Ink, Distress Inks: Forest moss, Fired brick, Victorian velvet, Wild honey. Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays: Grab a Guy Gold, Hydrangea Blue, Ponderosa Pines Olive. Other: Hot glue gun, Versa-mark, Fussy Cutting Scissors, Misti stamping tool.

Take the 3 ring journal folder, the modeling paste, spatula and the crafters work shop template to first apply the letter writing to the front cover and spine of the journal folder. Put aside to dry. Returning back to the journal front cover. When the cover modeling paste is dry, spray with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays till you get the color you want. Misting with water if needed. Do this also to the back cover of the journal. Dry the sprays with the heat it tool or you can leave it to air dry.
Take the eyelet die and die cut the frame from a piece of white cardstock. Trim the inside part away from the lace out side edge. Put the inside part aside for later. Bring the Wild honey and Fired brick ink onto the lace frame edge. Taking the scalloped oval die from the small oval die set cut this x 6. Take the Words of Comfort stamp set and find the sentiment with ‘Today I Choose’ on it. Stamp this on one of the ovals with the aid of the misti-stamping tool. Adhere all the layers together with wet glue so you can slide it to match the scalloped edge.
Taking the banner die from the ‘Banners Of Love’ die set and the stamp set ‘Todays Quotes’ and find the stamp with ‘Todays Accomplishments’ Use the two in combination to make the banner. Cut the banner x 3 extra from the card-stock, adhere all together to make a chipboard banner. This is to be sprayed with the gold Lindy’s stamp gang spray later when the spraying is done to the journal cover.
Taking the white card stock and design paper scraps from the Young At Heart paper collection use the classic rose stamp and die set to make the rose petals and leaf swirls. Use the distress inks to bring color to the leaves, rose petal tips and centers. Spray the petals and leaves with the water mister place in the rose mold then put the mold through the die cutting machine twice to get a good press. ( Do not make the paper or card-stock too wet as the paper will break in the mold when you put it through the die cutting machine. If you do make it too wet, leave to dry until they are just moist just as you would when balling to bring shape to the petals with the tools. )  For the blue / green colored flowers, these are sprayed with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays. Spray also the cut away inner part of the eyelet frame that was put aside. Leave to dry a little, as the petals will still be too wet. When ready put these through the machine in the rose mold. Take the petals out of the molds with the aid of the piercer tool found in the flower shaping tool kit. Leave the shaped petals to dry completely. When dry, shape the centers so the petals cup up. Prick a hole in the petal center to you can thread the stamens through the opening.  The stamen colors used are the pink and the green fond in the bright pearl assortment bundle. Take three stamens, fold in half then thread the stems through the whole. Secure with at the back with the hot glue gun. The glue is cooled off, trim the excess stems away.
When the cover is dry, adhere the outer part of the eyelet frame to the center of the cover. Cut the sprayed eyelet center frame in half and adhere each piece below and to the sides of the outer frame. The scalloped frame with the sentiment is spritzed with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays. The banners colored with the blue spray and the out side highlighted with the gold spray. Mist so the sprays will run a little. Adhere this to the inside of the eyelet frame when dry. Arrange the leaf swirls and flowers to and around the frame. Adhere with the hot glue gun. Apply the wet glue for the Prills and Gala glitz as shown in the photo. Using the tray, apply the Prills and Gala glitz with apply the Prills with a spoon and sprinkle gently so the Prills will not bounce everywhere. The small banner that has been sprayed with gold, adhere to the bottom right of the journal cover.
The pages to go in the journal. My take on it anyway. All the hard work is done, printed and all prettied up for you. All you need to do is, add photos and do some journalling.

Heres the product list and the how to for these pages.

Find the stamp with the scripture 1Tim 1:7, copy the scripture verse and hand wright the verse to the outer edge of the second page.
1st Page

 2nd Page

close ups

Had to get some of my own

For the 3rd page, the journaling is written around the photo card-stock matting. Use the sentiment stamps ‘So grateful’ and ‘I will never forget this day’ to stamp with the black ink at the top right and bottom left of the page. The stamp with the verse from Psalm 18:32 is hand written as journaling. Continue to fill the page with doodling and journaling about the event and photos. The page that would follow this page could be used only for journaling about the days events or it could be used to start a record of a new adventure.

You can see I had fun playing around a time.

....And thats only 3 pages! Imagine doing the whole book. Check out what the other DT members have done. Some of them have been good little girls and...done, did....a whole book of this yum goodness!
I won't hold you up any longer, because eI know you want to get back to the BLACK FRIDAY fun

Crafters Companion love on this Monday...

featuring some of the new Sara's signature collection, 'Flutterby' with the 3d embossing folders using the gold building wax....a fantastic combo!

Lots of close ups to enjoy today. The product list is at the end of the post.

Layering the butterfly's gives the front interest. The shield is cut from cardboard and design paper, embossed, then the gilding wax and Tumbled glass distress ink applied.

Tied at the side for the closing using three organza ribbons.
The sentiment is die cut about 6 times then adhered together to form a word chippie the ink and wax is applied.

Adding the building wax a little at a time so it can be true to the elegance the gold wax brings to any project.

This box is brought out by G45
The box sides have been stamped, stencilled with the novo mouse then the gold gilding wax is applied to make a elegant finish to the mixed media and cover edges.

 A peak at the inside..the embossing and gilding wax is applied here too.

A total look at the inside workings. There is a small book with 3 selves with a band to hold all closed and in place. The band brings back the butterflies from the front cover.

Yes there is also a small cute tag book to match.

Getting a close look at the mini book and the tag book.
The butterfly is die cut from the new pretty glitter card-stock.
The card-stock packet has 4 colours, so it is value for money.

The real life project can be seen at HANDMADE HOBBIE from Saturday on wards.
Thats it for today...wishing you a scrappy happy day
