Dale's tip for October

CARD TUTORIAL - PRESENT BOXES

Hi everyone. It's Dale here on the Mystical blog today. As it is birthday month here at Mystical I have decided that my tutorial will be on how to make cute little present boxes. These boxes can feature on any card or scrapbook page. You can make them for birthdays or even Christmas if you choose.
Only 16 weeks to go til the big day. I'm sure some of you are thinking about making your cards already.

Your list of supplies you will need might read like this:

square punch or trimmer
small flower punch
ribbon
patterned paper and cardstock
twine
adhesive

Start by punching or cutting out squares. You can use the same sizes or vary it up.
Then cut some small pieces of co-ordinating patterned paper, cardstock or you can use ribbon or twine. These will represent the ribbon over your present wrapping.


 Attach these with your doubled sided adhesive.


Punch out some small flower or other shape to go on top to represent your ribbon flower. I used a small flower and a splat. I coloured around the edge of the splat in the centre present with green pen to co-ordinate with the ribbon.


Then your presents are ready to go on a page or a card. I've made a simple card using white cardstock, a strip of green and white patterned paper and some tiny alphas for the sentiment.


I hope this inspires you to make your own present boxes.
