This is the lovely sewing box that is on your CD
print and cut out all your pieces,mount base onto black card then onto white Centura Pearl with a hint of gold..Then fold and glue the boxed use Tacky glue as you need a strong bond,
then fold the matchbox covers and glue with tacky glue also. then cut out the labels and mount onto black card..Using the same glue carefully cut some thine pieces of ribbon fold in half and glue to the middle top of th box front then glue the rest the same.Place the finished boxes alternated like I have done around the base then glue with the tacky glue..Hold in place for a little while when they are all in place then they will stay in place and stay close together.Now with the Top piece do the same as the bottom with the black card and white.. sorry I did not do measurement because how I did this was lay it onto A4 card trim lengthwise so that there is a fair bit left over then fold in half as you can see on the picture.. I then matted and layered topper and added to the folded piece using tacky glue..I then decorated this with some paper of the CD.. Mat and layer the topper and stick to this with Tacky glue..Make a stopper with
the remaining label and decorate as you wish .I used a button punch and little card with twine on it that I cut free hand and wrapped twine around it and curled the end of the twine of it to help raise the buttons too
I used a 7x7 card blank and matted the lovely paper from the cd onto craft card, I then cut out the frame and the inner circle it has a white rim when it comes off the printer and I wanted the natural craft card to come through instead,so cut it away,but you could mace a nice little frame to fit with your dies if you wish I then mounted the tag onto the craft card and shaped it with a pencil then stuck the outer frame down with Collall 3D gel glue and then added the center circle so it was slightly more proud.I mounted a sentiment and then cut the faux tape from the rest of the page I had printed..shaped that also with my pencil..I added these with the 3D gel glue too ..i dont like flat things stuck down its more interesting to add movement ..amd finished off with a verse on the inside and gems .

I loved this as soon as I saw it I like the shape.For this one I used an 8x8 card blank.I then matted the paper from the cd onto Gold Centura Pearl and added it to the card.after cutting and layering the main piece ,there are three pieces on each page in this section .I decided to go into the embellishment section where I found these fabulous little pendants ,one nas a hedgehog on and the other a pair of wellies..I matted them onto some of the left over card and bent them adound a thin tube to give shape I then glued these in place with 3D gel glue and popped some ribbon on them.Then I matted a piece of blue paler paper left over from one of my other cards and did faux stitching around the edge..Glued it onto the baed with Collall
All Purpose gluethen I added main topper with 3d Gel glueand
finished with black gems and added a verse from the cd .
I created this card from two sheets of Centura Pearl
with a hint of gold.. I folded at three inches and added
it to the other piece and trimmed to size..Then I matted
the paper I chose from the cd onto black cardI then cut all the bits but the flowers ,out from the printed sheet from the cd and matted and layered them.. I cut an edge from a diesire edging die and placed it on the card ,added the two larger topper pieces cut out a sentiment and the faux tape added the tape to the tags .. I then cut the flowers out I had some buttons left from a previous card and using 3D glue gel i popped them in the middle but felt they needed more so added a pink rose to each to finish and a few Leaves and gems too .
This is a very simple but looks hard and complicated card.. Its one of those you give someone and they think you have spent hours on and you have not hehe its our secret lol..It can be so nicely decorated up too.. Basically print it out,,cur it out,fold all the lines and glue..Top tip I can give you is make sure you have got nice crisp creases it not only makes it easier ,but it looks absolutely gorgeous..Hardest part is popping the little strips around the inside of the frame, it is for me as my fingers dont work properly but you will do fine ...decorate as you wish.
Thank you for visiting :)x
