Guestdesigner Monday with Blankina



Hi all, thank you so much for all sweet comments on my first Guestdesigners Monday.
Hope you had a lovely weekend...here in Italy it seemed Summer instead of Autumn..
Today I would like to show that you can also use the TGF textstamps to decorate.

Do you need a box for your sweet cupcakes ?? For a birthday or any other occassion.
Sorry I did not have time to make cupcakes so for the photo I have used some bought cakes.

The box is made of two different colours cardstock, 
the bottom is made of pink cardstock and the top of white cardstock 
with a pink ink stamped Big Anya treats ( the Greeting Farm ), 
she is perfect to decorate your box because she also  comes  with two text stamps...

I have added also some other stamps which complete the decoration.




STEP BY STEP EXPLANATION HOW TO MAKE THE BOX:
( Sorry but the photos are not that great but hope you get the idea )

1
- TAKE TWO SHEETS OF PLAIN CARDSTOCK  29, 5 CM X 29,5 CM ( TWO COLOURS )

2-
 TOP SHEET, SCORE THE LINES 
ON THE CRAFTERS COMPANION ULTIMATE PRO SUITCASE OR SIMILAIR,
MORE OR LESS AT 6,5 CM ( 5TH LINE ON THE BOX LID SIDE ) 
ON EACH SIDE OF THE PAPER

3
- NOW YOU TAKE THE OTHER SHEET AND SCORE THE 5TH LINE OF THE BOX BASE SIDE, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE CRAFTERS COMPANION SUITCASE YOU SHOULD SCORE THE LINES SLIGHTLY SMALLER IN ABLE THAT THE BOX BASE FITS INTO THE BOX LID.

4
- SCORE ANOTHER LINE ( LEAVING MORE OR LESS A BORDER OF 2,5 CM ) 
7 TH LINE OF CC SUITCASE

5
- STAMP THE LID


6
- CUT THE CENTRE, 
AND A SMALL PIECE AT EACH SIDE IN ABLE TO SHAPE THE BOX

7
- GLUE THE SIDES, LET THEM DRY




after folding it looks like this....


put some paperclips on the glued bits untill they are dry...

Ofcourse Big Anya treats has got her own page in my TGF family album...


I had such fun making the box , so I have made also a small giftbox 
with the new .Bright Bean 
Yes she has finally arrived last week!!

Instead of cutting the centre I have added two frames cut with my creatable of Marianne Design.
Added loads of strass, glitters and the final touch pearls glimmer mist ( copper ) to get an antique/vintage look. A ribbon to close the box.
This type is perfect to give money / vouchers /  or small gifts....not bad for Christmas either!


Love this rusty shades, and ofcourse Bean looks great in any kind of colour!!

Please check all the challenges with the Greeting Farm stamps, 
there is also a new TGF challenge did you see the post of Jessica last week?

Thanks for visiting hope to see you next Monday again 
( ofcourse I love to get a visit on my personal blog too )

Crafty hugs from your october guestdesigner
