First DT post on Scrapadabadoo Today

Hello my crafty friends.
Today is my first post on the Scrapadabadoo blog as a design team member. 


I am showing how to make some of the flowers on these cards

Please go by the Scrapadabadoo website and download the free PDF file that shows and explains the steps. 

I will be sharing more instructions on the flowers and the cards later.
You can also check out my video flowers tutorials here and my written instructions here.

I also have tutorials on special folding cards here.  

I plan to do several flower tutorials and even introduce new flowers soon.

You can download the pdf instructions on the Scrapadabadoo blog.
Here is a copy of the cut files used.

Forgot the link

Oops! I forgot to add the link to the decorated gift box files in my last post. They are available in my Etsy shop.

Also, I posted a link to the online shop that I get my boxes from in the comments of a post a few weeks ago. I thought I would post the link here as well...

I get the boxes for my 8.5 by 5.5 cards at Paper Mart. They are called "jewelry" boxes. I have purchased the Kraft boxes before and recently purchased the Gold Floral. The gold boxes are a little bit more expensive but they are absolutely beautiful. (so the extra cost is worth it to me) The Kraft boxes in the 5 5/8 by 8 5/8 inches by 1 3/8 inches are out of stock until May. I believe any of the "jewelry" boxes that size would the the same quality.

Let me know if you have any questions. I am always happy to help :)

Decorated Gift Box

Hello my crafty friends. I did not realize it had been so long since I posted. I have been busy crafting and taking pictures but forgetting to post. Oh well, I promise to catch up.

I made this lovely decorated gift box for the Scrapadabadoo FB challenge. Last Monday they started having challenges every other Monday. It is all just for fun. No pressure. The current challenge is a grid challenge where you pick three items in a row from the grid.
I decided to pick the 3 on the left; flowers, ribbon, and bows.

I cut the gift box and the decorative panels out with cut files that I made. You can get the cut files here.  There is also a 12 minute video if you are interested in how I put it together.

 I made the flowers using my Open Rose and Pretty Flower files and techniques.

I was lucky enough to be chosen for the Scrapadabadoo Design Team !
I will be posting lots of new projects soon.
