Tag Topper Box - video tutorial

I first made this box quite a while ago and shared some instructions on my blog.

It remains my most popular blog post and as my recent videos have gone down well, I thought I'd make an updated version and film a video tutorial.

The box isn't fully sealed and I really like that you get a sneak peak at the contents. It is also great for putting smelly samples in, such as fragrant wax melts as they are easily 'sniffable' through the open sides.

The updated version uses Hello Honey and DSP from the fabulously versatile Moonlight DSP stack. I used Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon as the highlight colours.

Start with a peice of card stock, 25cm by 15 cm or 10 inches by 6 inches

Score along the long side at 2cm, 5cm, 10cm, 15cm, 20cm and 23cm; 3/4inch, 2inch, 4inch, 6inch, 8 inch and 9 and 1/4inch.

Score along the short side at 5cm and 10cm; 2inch and 4inch.

Easter Basket Papercraft Tutorial

Easter Basket Papercraft Tutorial

How cute are these little Easter Baskets?

I think they are just absolutely adorable and perfect for egg giving or for just dotting around the house over the Easter weekend so guests can just help themselves - grazing baskets shall we call them

They are surprisingly simple to make, as I mention in the video, my husband thought is was a new Bigz die.

The base card stock is 6 inches by 6inches

It is scored on two sides at 2inches to make a 3 x 3 grid (not 4 x 4 as I accidentally say in the video).

You then further sub-divide the four corners of the grid at: 

5/8inch, 1 and 3/8 inch, 4 and 5/8inch and at 5 and 3/8 inch.

Here is the video, hope you enjoy it, features the first outing for my new score board.

It is only my second video so any feedback is most welcome
