Year of Cards Gift Box

March 9, 2012

I got this tutorial designed by Amanda Corbett  from the February 2012 Edition at Craft Project Central and finally had a chance to play.  Part of the reason I hadn’t made the tutorial is that the Labels Collection Framelits Dies were unavailable in Australia.  However, being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I was able to pre-order these Dies which will be available for purchase when the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue comes out on the 1st April.  So this box is the first project I completed once my pre-order arrived.

The box is really quite large 7-1/4″ x 6-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ so although it is designed to hold portfolios which work as a card organiser for the year, it would hold quite a large gift for a birthday or other celebration.  Of course it uses the very beautiful Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper which is available during Sale-A-Bration.

I haven’t completed all the portfolios yet, but it is quite an ingenious design.  The portfolio opens to have a pocket on each side which has a tag on the front to record the birthday’s, anniversaries etc. and of course the cards can be stored in the pockets.  You can see the one that I have partly completed in this photo.

Can you see the gorgeous new Labels Collection Framelits Die.  These are the largest and second largest dies in the set.  You actually get six dies altogether.  I just love them.

If you like to make this fantastic Year of Cards Gift Box, just pop over to Craft Project Central and sign up for February 2012.  It only costs $10.00 and you get ten projects – fantastic value isn’t it.

Hope you like what you have seen so far.  Once I have the portfolios completed I will share with you all.

Bye for now, Kris.
