Octagon Boxes & Cards

Hello crafty friends! Card Making Magic has brought us some really creative and useful cutting dies this week! The Octagon Box Kit Cutting Dies and Christmas Full Of Magic Cutting Dies are versatile and fun to play with!

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

Take a look at this adorable gift box that Debbie made! It’s 8″ tall, 6 1/4″ wide and decorated with Cutsie Christmas Paper Pack and 12″x12″ Cardstock. So Cute!

Debbie even made these poinsettias for the box top!

The Octagon Box Kit Cutting Dies comes with 26 dies. Look at all of these great designs!

This 1″ tall box is also 6 1/4″ wide and isn’t it perfect for fall? The base is made from Gold Sparkles Holographic Paper and she decorated it using Dotted Duo’s #3 Paper Pack.

Debbie used the same poinsettia cutting dies to make beautiful flowers. She used a Stylus Tool to curve the petals into a different shape.

She even added a lining to the inside of the box. Great idea!

To make a card Debbie used the Octagon Box Kit Cutting Dies, Christmas Full Of Magic Cutting and Dies Christmas Sparkle Paper Pack.

To make the card front, Debbie used the box base/lid cutting die and cut away all but 1 flap to make a hinge for the card fold.

She glued this flap to the back of a large die cut hexagon shape.

Pink Jewel Dazzles™ Stickers were used to decorate the Christmas Full Of Magic Cutting Dies wreath. I love all the sparkle!

Just In Time For Fall

Hello crafty friends! Hot Off The Press has the cutest NEW products for fall and I can’t wait to show you!

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

Dotted Duos #3 Paper Pack has a wonderful collection of Fall inspired polka dots (and I LOVE dots!). The 12 double sided paper have micro dots on one side and larger dots on the other.

It’s such a versatile Paper Pack!

The 8 Labels For Your Greetings Cutting Dies and Special Sentiments Clear Stamps made a great focal for the card. I used both Tangerine and Ginger Country Blooms along with Fall Foliage Sparkletz and nested them around the label.

I’m very excited to introduce a NEW product from Hot Off The Press, exclusive to Paper Wishes! Birds & Branches Chipboard!

The cream colored pieces are perfect for blended inks to match any project.

I used them again on this scrapbook page and used a collage technique to make little clusters of chipboard, flowers and Sparkletz.

The birds and branches were easy to spot color using brown, red/orange and green ink pads.

The sweet Forest Friends Cutting Dies, cut from Chocolate Brown Cardstock and backed with Kraft Cardstock, adds the perfect touch of nature.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope you check out these new products for your fall projects.

Borderline Cutting Dies From Creative Expressions

Hello crafty friends! Last night I played with the NEW Borderline Cutting Dies from Creative Expressions. I had so much fun experimenting with them!

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

The Merry Christmas Borderline Cutting Dies makes a cute card edge. And it was so easy to do!

I wanted to make a small card, so I cut my blank white card to 5″x3 1/2″ and placed the word portion of the cutting die across the top edge.

After running through my die cutting machine I cut along the left and right edges to extend the edge to fit the card.

I used NEW Cutsie Christmas Paper Pack, which includes these darling cut-outs. I also added White Jewel Dazzles™ Stickers and Red Ribbon to add some sparkle and dimension.

I used Cutie Christmas Paper Pack again for this Center Step Die Cut Card. I placed swirly white Fancy Border Dazzles™ Stickers on each side border.

I cut the Winter Wishes Borderline Cutting Dies from red dot paper and used the matting die with white cardstock to really make the greeting pop!

Stepping Into Christmas Hunkydory Card Kit

Hello crafty friends! The long summer days are a great time to start making those Christmas cards. I like to take card making on the road when I vacation with my family and kits from Hunkydory Crafts are so portable.

Tip: To purchase any of the items featured today just click on the underlined links and you will be taken to the Paper Wishes product page.

The Stepping Into Christmas Kit has a large variety of styles and all you need to take with you are scissors (or a paper cutter) Foam Squares, 2 Sided Adhesive Tape (and Paper Wishes has a new type that you can tear) and some Blank Cards.

For this card, Debbie cut 3″ width from the left side of a full sheet of Adorable Scorable Cardstock. Set this piece aside.

To make the card base from the remaining large piece of Adorable Scoreable Cardstock, Debbie scored it twice, once 1 3/4″ from the left edge and again 2 1/4″ from the left.

This makes a raised fold to accommodate for the dimensional pieces inside the card. She then glued the 3″ wide piece (that was cut away) even with the fold on the card front.

Foam tape the die-cut pieces on the inside of the card.

For this card, cut a 7 3/4″ width of Adorable Scoreable Cardstock and fold n half, right sides together. Glue a 3 5/8″ piece to the card front.

The scene on the card front is just adorable!

For this card, Debbie used a Blank White Card as the base and cut 2 1/2″ front the top of the card front only. Cover the card front and inside back with Adorable Scorable Cardstock. Foam tape die-cut corners to the card bottom and inside top corner.

Add die-cut borders and greetings and then foam tape the large die-cut Santa circle to extend off the top edge.

Cut a Blank White Card to 5 5/8″ wide and cover with Adorable Scoreable Cardstock.

Foam tape the layers of the die-cut card topper and foam tape to the card front. The card topper will be slightly larger than the base, creating a shaped card.
