Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Little Boxes with Tonic .. In two styles !!

Hi Everybody,

Little boxes are always handy for those small gifts we like to give  Or as favor boxes at Weddings or Christenings. Fill them with sugared almonds for each guest. Decorate them with flowers, ribbons and the colours to suit the wedding.

This comes to you as a kit from Craft Stash and it is the Tonic Cardmaking Collection Issue 2

It consists of the Tonic die,  an embossing folder and some stamps for you to decorate the boxes that you make

In the video I show you two different ways to make the boxes

This four panel box is big enough to hold perfume, jewellery or maybe some tea lights.

You could even fill it with confetti for your guests to throw ... the confetti not the box !!

I have lined this two panel box with gold and added a  pearl string handle and some flowers

Perfect for adding a bridesmaid gift too, of maybe a little necklace to celebrate the wedding.

So many different way to use these and so many ways to decorate them
This two panel box has been decorated with the stamps in the kit and would be perfect for a childs party.

Fill them with sweets or a small toy for each child

Add their names to really make them feel special

This one has had some of the embossed panels added to it and they have been enhanced with the stamps

The video
will show you how to create both of these styles 

And once you have the die then you can make these any time you need them for any occasion.

And that  has to be less expensive than going out to buy them

More tomorrow ...
