Technique To Try November



27500415_10156115508994553_5351542216274918208_oThis month on the Technique to Try we are making simple gift bags and boxes.

Well I do love making boxes so this is what I came up with using this tutorial. Paper Pixie got her idea from Kathe Johnson.

I’m making these Chupa Chup boxes for an upcoming market

Chupa Chup have a new Limited Edition Candy Cane flavour!  Unfortunately, they come in a variety pack ..darn it!  I wanted all of them to be Candy Cane Flavour!

I used both the retired scoreboard (making it quicker to do multiples) and the Envelope Punch Board to make these.

Measurements are: 5 1/2 X 4″ CS so you can get 4 out of one piece of A4 CS!

Score on the long side at 1 1/4, 2 1/2. 3 3/4 and 5. Turn to short side and score 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 3 and 3 1/2.

I recommend watching Paper Pixies video on the punch board tips.  It is very much like you would do a Christmas Cracker…just one side only!

The paper I used is my favourite flocked paper out of the Santas Workshop Specialty DSP (147809 HC).

That’s my plan for today making 25 more of these!

For those coming to my November Stamping Day on the 25th November ..we will be making one of these along with 4 other boxes in the morning and then the House Bakers Box Mini album shown previously in the afternoon.


Thanks for stopping by.
