Box Card

I was asked to make a very special card for a good friend of mine Jan from cats protection who this week is receiving an award for service and dedication to the cause. So i thought to myself i would make a nice box card, as you can see from the photos i used my bear dies and did a bit of embossing, mat and layering and of course sewing hehehe. I also embellished the box to match my card i also decorated the inside to match the outside of the card, the top part is left blank so we can all sign it..... Hope you like my little boxed card!


Even if i had time to do some crafting my cats seems to have other ideas, as you can see from the photo my cats like to be anywhere i am which means i cant do anything without their help... silly cats.... and if you look in the background on my pc you can see i am trying to talk to my crafting sister lori in Canada but jasper decided he would lay on my keyboard ... cats you got to love them hehehe

How to make a bigger bottle

I have had a few people ask what size my bottle die is and it is 11 x 4.8 cm, but you can make it taller, its really easy to do so i thought i would show you how i do it.

Step 1. Cut 2 bottles in what ever colours you want, and then cut them how i have, the bottle you want the to be the bottle colour only cut in half, the bottle you want to be the label colour cut 2 times it is up to you how big you want the label to be, but if you look at the photos you can see how i did mine.
Step 2. ink and chalk how you want, i aged my label white a light brown ink pad and the bottle i just edged with black, at this point you can also make the top for your bottle cut it how ever you want, you can use the left over card from the bottle you cut your label from, ink and chalk that to match.

Step 3. Now its time to put it together, for my label part i used a warm wishes stamp, stamp on the label part before you stick it onto the bottle. Now you can decide how tall you want your bottle just glue the top and bottom of the label and wiggle it about till you are happy with the size.... If you look at photo 3 you can see where the label should go.

Step 4. Now you can dress you bottle i went with simple just a green bow to match the bottle but you can add charms and glitter glue, you can do whatever you want:)

Now you should have a bottle that is about 15 x 4.8 cm without having to buy another die.... so simple and does not take long to do.... Have fun with it hugs trakxxx
