Project Instructions:
Other products: Mod Podge, Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Tea Dye Distress Ink, Paper Trimmer, Scissors, wood box, Flat Back Pearls, Doilie, Seam Binding, Butterfly Cameo, and Bling Buttons.
Instructions: Measure the sides of the box with your ruler and use the paper trimmer to cut the sizes you will need, using a paint brush add the mod podge to one side at a time and adhere the paper, press down with a bone folder making sure there is no air bubbles, adhere the paper to all the box and let it sit and dry. Once the box is dry you can distress the edges with sand paper and add the tea dye distress ink first and than the vintage photo distress ink. I like to use gesso alot, so I added gesso with a sponge to all the edges of the box, and I love the look and texture that it gives. Use the Ornate Gateway Die and cut out six of the one that goes on top of the gate, you will use three (3) for the bottom of the box and three (3) on the top of the box, and also cut out three (3) of the leaf swirl from the Gift Ensemble Die, they will be used on the top of the box, and finally cut out six (6) of the large flower petals using the Posy Patch spellbinders die and (6) of the next size down, they will be used along with the cordinating stamps. Now that you have everything cut out and stamped lets have fun and start putting everything together. Use the Beautiful lace border stamp from the Gazebo PreCut set and stamp along the bottom of the box using vintage photo ink, once that is done adhere the die cut from the Ornate Gateway Die to the bottom corners of the box skipping one corner. Now moving to the top of the box, shape your flowers using the Blossom stylus and make your flowers, you will have two big flowers and two medium flowers, add the bling buttons to the center and dab gesso with a sponge onto each flowers. Use the other three Ornate Gateway die cut and the leaf swirl and adhere them to the top of your box, add trims and doilies to fill up spaces and make a bow with seambinding add a cameo to hide the knot, adhere the flowers, and trim and bow to the box and there you have a BEAUTIFUL BOX!! Perfect for gift giving and the person who receives it will fall in love with it!! Hope you have enjoyed this tutorial.

HCPC 3543 - Winter Season PreCut Set
HCPC 3507- Timeless Amour Background PreCut Set
Ornate Gateway Die
Daphne Paper Collection

StazOn (Jet black),Glossy Accents, Gesso, Glimmer Mist (patina and jack frost) sponge, and haeting tool.

I used a 7 1/2 by 3 1/2 chipboard base to make my tag, using glossy accents I adhere paper on both sides from the Beautiful Daphne Paper Collection and set it aside with three heavy books on top so as it dries the chipboard will dry nice and flat for me. I used a sponge to gently dab gesso to the front side of the tag as I love the texture gesso gives to the surface and also to prepare it for the glimmermist. When the Gesso is  dry I used the Timeless Amour Background stamp and StazOn jet black ink to make my background and started playing with the glimmer mists, I prayed the patina color first and used my heat tool to dry the tag and than I used the jack frost mist and dried it with heat tool, you can go back and add more if you please but for me that was perfect. I used the winter season precut set stamps and the stazon jet black ink to stamp it on my tag and when back to add gesso with a sponge. Use the Ornate Gateway die and when cut out dab gesso with a sponce to the front and back of gates and adhere them to the sides of the tag, I added the top part of the gates to the top of the tag and make a bow with seam bindding and a pearl to the center of the bow, and using "Winter Wonderland" stamp from the Winter season precut set collection , stamp the centiment above the gates. I LOVE the way this tag turned out and it will be perfect for Christmas!! Thank you for joining me and I do hope you have enjoyed this tutorial :)

Heartfelt Creations Dt Project 2

Paper Sack Card

Products Used:
HCDP1 231 Posy Patch Paper Collection

Project Instructions:
Other Products: Seam Binding, glitter, trim, liquid glue, large paper sacks, and foam board.
Instructions: Fold the large sack bag in half the bottom part of the bag being in the inside and adhere the sides down to create a pocket but make sure you adhere the sides after you line the inside with paper. Line the front, the inside, and the back of the sack with your favorite sheet of the 12 x 12 from the Posy Patch collection. I fussy cut the bird image along with some of the beautiful flowers and stems and adhere glitter to the flowers using liquid glue and fine glitter. I used three layers of paper at the front of the card, white cardstock, paper from the collection and another piece from the collection, distress the edges and on the last layer curl one corner with a thin paint brush and adhere a piece of trim behind that corner. I used trim to behind the bird and flower images, and I used small squares of foam board that I cut myself and added them to the back of each image to add dimension. Cut a sentiment from the paper collection, distress the edges and adhere to the fron of the card. I punched holes to the side of the card and used seam binding to make a bow, for the inside of the card I did not embellish it because the paper is so BEAUTIFUL!! For the opening of the bag I lined it with the gorgeous paper and I thought it would be perfect for a tag or a small gift card. I LOVE the way this card turned out and I do hope you enjoed the tutorial. Thank you for stopping by!
