Thanks to everyone who watched the shows yesterday and took the time to email in. Sorry all the emails weren't read out.
Today I thought I'd share another couple of Hexagon Pinwheel Top Boxes that I knocked up Friday afternoon after reading your comments on that day's post.
The first is made with ivory pearlescent card so I think would be suitable for a wedding. I have embossed the embellishments panels with the Couture Creations Wild Poinsettia Embossing Folder.
The second is a Christmas Tree ornament as suggested by Cornish Emma on Friday's Post - thank you, Emma. I have made 2 boxes out of beautiful Shimmerlux Card available from Creative Expressions Stockists. Instead of using the panels provided in the die set, I have embellished each panel with a snowflake cut from Spellbinders Create-a-Flake and inked through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.
I folded some Baker's Twine from the Vintage Set in half and secured it behind one of the boxes with some super sticky tape. I then glued the 2 boxes together back-to-back with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue. Sorry about the quality of this pic.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hi Julia, great idea making Xmas tree decorations, you could also do a mobile using the same idea and hanging them at various lengths.ReplyDelete
Hi Julia, I caught one of your shows yesterday - loved the various music while using the GC! Lovely boxes xxReplyDelete
Managed to watch one of your shows yesterday Julia and loved the demos.ReplyDelete
These little boxes are so pretty but I find the dies a bit expensive
I haven't got these dies as I don't ever have have cause to make boxes, but it doesn't stop me from loving them.ReplyDelete
Great shows yesterday Julia and thanks for all the different techniques you shared with us. These boxes are lovely but like others haven't got the die (yet lol). Enjoy your Sunday, Christine H xxReplyDelete
P.S. Julia, can I ask, I have only recently acquired the GC but my plates and embossing mat are very static and all the card bits cling to them. The embossing mat is sticky too and really adheres to the pink plate. Any suggestions as to how I could remedy this? Appreciate your help, Cxx
You can dust your mats with either an anti-static pad (the one you use when stamping and embossing) or some talc (which will make your mats smell lovely!). It's a good idea to do this regularly i.e. as soon as the static returns.
Hope that helps.
Oh thank you so much Julia, I have an anti-static pad so will try that, like the idea of the talc though to make the mats smell lovely. Thought I would ask first rather than use something that could damage the mats. Bless you. C xxDelete
Hi Christine, ive found using a tumble dryer sheet (after its dried) over my plates and also on my dies helps with the static. Using it on the intricate dies is great as they then just pop out easily without ending up bending or tearing the card. EmmaDelete
Thanks for the tips Emma kind of you to respond. I will keep my dried tumble dryer sheets in future. ChristineDelete
Hi Julia - I enjoyed the shows - did laugh at you trying to get Martyn to behave lol!ReplyDelete
Love the christmas one would look great on the tree with a money or voucher gift in it! Your shows were great yesterday love the fact you are demoing lots of different techniques which give loads of ideas. Loved the ooh la la background in particular. I have a french friend so those stamp sets will be great for cards and gifts for her when (notice when not if) I buy them!!!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on yesterdays shows you were brilliant. For me these little boxes would make ideal boxes for tree giftsReplyDelete
Hi Julia, shows were great. I love this box template, think it will be my next order. BxReplyDelete
I love these little boxes.
I did manage to watch the 7pm show and was in stitches at you and Debbie. I want a musical Calibur lol
These boxes are just gorgeous. Hugs, Claire xReplyDelete
I watched you on Create and Craft, what an inspiration you are. I just purchased a Grand Calibur after my Big Shot broke, after watching your demo on which plates to use with what dies etc. I feel more confident to use it. So thank you, am now following your blog mine is carolanncrafts.blogspot.com if you wish to take a look. Thank you once again. Best wishes Carol.xReplyDelete
Great boxes again.
Have a great day
Hi Julia, these boxes are very cute! haven't got the dies but great idea..Enjoy your day..:)..xxReplyDelete
Afternoon Julia, really like the boxes like them all actually that spellbinder have brought out. They are stunning and can have a multitude of uses really like the last one you have shown here xx hazelReplyDelete
