Altenew – Gift Set using Washi Tape

Hello everyone,

and happy December!! It’s quite cold here and we even had some snow flakes today! Nonetheless, my project for today is full of blooming flowers! Are you up for it?

I had this see-through box from an old packaging laying around for some time and turned it into a gift box a week ago using Altenew Washi Tape! Super easy.

I also made a set of cards with a matching look to put into the box and give to one of my non-cardmaking friends. I hope you like it. 🙂

Here’s the finished box with cards inside:

The box before I made it pretty 😉

And three cards with matching envelopes that I made the box for:

Some details about my cards:

  • I decorated all envelopes with the same Washi tape as on the cards and gift box.
  • Card 1 was inspired by Altenew’s Diamond Frame die! I used the striped narrow Washi to recreate that look.
  • On card 2 I used colored linen cardstock and covered that with Washi. It gives a different and textured look that I really like!
  • On card 3 I added strips of cardstock in colors that matched the floral Washi for a different look that still is pleasing to the eye.
  • I used either foam tape or stacked-up die-cuts for dimension.

All supplies are listed below.

I made this gift set for Altenew‘s current Washi Tape contest and I hope it will inspire you to get out your Washi Tape. 🙂

Mini Advent Calendar 2020 (Blog Hop)

Hello friends!

Today I am happy to be part of a little blog hop! A couple of German crafters have been doing a “Secret Santa” swap of mini advent calendars and today we are all gonna show you what we made! A big thank you to Birka for organizing this again!! 🙂

If you are hopping along, you should be arriving from Janine aka Ellabella. She made such a cute advent calendar for me with Mama Elephant stamps!! I was very happy when I got it and it arrived super early so I have been enjoying it for a couple of weeks already!  ❤

AND the kittens have mostly left it alone (they usual chew on everything), so yay! 😉

For the calendar that I made I chose a BUNCH of Lawn Fawn critters and dies as well as “Layered Snowflakes” Die-namics from MFT Stamps. If you place all 6 boxes next to each other you kind of get a continuous scene. I got to send my calendar to Katrin (your next stop!) and I really hope she likes it!! 🙂

HERE’S MY ADVENT CALENDAR!

I also made a matching card to go along with my advent calendar which I have already posted here! I used the same color scheme as for the mini calendar. Since Katrin and I both own cats I knew I wanted to send her something kitten-related. 😀

Here’s the full hop list again:

Have an amazing Sunday! ♥

Mini Advent Calendar (Blog Hop)

Hello there and happy 1st of December!

Today I am part of a little blog hop and get to show you a special papercrafting project – a mini advent calender that consists of 6 handmade boxes overall! A couple of German crafters have been doing a “Secret Santa” gift exchange like this for a couple of years and I am very happy to be part of it this year. A big thank you to Birka for organizing the whole thing!! 🙂

If you are hopping along, you should be arriving from my friend Reni. She made the most amazing advent calendar for me, don’t you think!!? I am so lucky!!!

I myself got to make and send a calendar to talented Dunja (your next stop!)! And I chose some of my favorite stamps from Winnie & Walter to decorate it. ❤

HERE’S MY ADVENT CALENDAR!

If you know me, you know that I am not. good. at mass producing. Lol. Crafting is my creative outlet so I get bored easily when I have to make several items that are exactly alike. So, as usual, I ended up with 6 different sizes, shapes or at least colors for my boxes. 😀

LET’S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK:

Unfortunately Shay from Winnie & Walter just announced that her shop will be closing down! I am really sad about it. Although it means that it’s your chance to grab some items from their last sale. 😉

But first, go see what all the other girls made for their Secret Santas!! I can’t wait to see their projects either!

Here’s the full hop list again:

Have an amazing day! ♥
