Welcome to another awesome Control Freaks blog hop. This month we're highlighting products from the new Occasions and Sale-a-Bration catalogs. I'm sure you'll love our projects!
You may have just arrived from my friend Lyssa's blog; just keep clicking on the icon at the end of each post to see all of the Freak's creativity.
First is a sweet box I had on display at my new catalog Open House a few weeks ago; made with the Window Shopping bundle.
I just love the multi-colored candles on the side of this adorable six sided box. It's done by inserting strips of card stock to the inside of the box, over the die cuts. Be sure to do this while your box is flat; before you assemble it! The lid has a piece of Real Red card stock adhered to the inside also. It's finished with a simple Red stitched satin bow.
Stampin' Up! has an awesome video on how to assemble this fun and unique box. Be sure to watch it; the tips they give make assembling it very easy.
This set of Window Box thinlit dies can be used for more than just boxes!
This soft and pretty card is elegant yet very simply made. Start out by die-cutting the delicate window from your Vanilla top layer (3 3/4" X 5"). Add a 3" square of Falling in Love Designer Series Paper behind the window. Next use your Simply Scored tool to add scoring lines 1/4" from each edge; from the back side. Add your new Vanilla Satin ribbon and adhere to your main Vanilla card.
The greeting banner is made by stamping on a piece of Vanilla card stock 5/8" wide. Then use the banner die with one of the Window Box thinlits to create the double fold banner end. It cuts and scores it for you; at whatever length you need! So cool!
And lastly I have an awesome Note Box Calendar project. We made it at my last Team meeting and they all couldn't believe how easy it was!
It's made from just one sheet of 8 1/2" X 11" card stock and a few pieces of Succulent Garden Designer Paper. I added a tear off calendar that I had ordered from Amazon. I believe you can get these online but first check your local printing places.
The video, templates and directions for this sweet calendar box will be posted tomorrow; so stop back in!
