Keepsake Box by Kathy

Hi, it's Kathy today, and this time I'd like to show you a Keepsake Box made using the "Sunrise" designs from this month's showcase CD
"Now That's Funky"  

 The inner box part of this measures 10cm square by 3cm deep, so it's a good size for storing all manner of jewellery, knick-knacks, or maybe those pads of paper to keep by the phone
  


Materials and Tools
"Sunrise"   from the Funky Hand CD "Now That's Funky" 
the designs were all printed on textured white Bazzill card 
Bazzill card in the deeper colour to make the wrap-around section of the box 
Empty cereal packet for the structural pieces 
 Ribbon
Dies: Square doily (Spellbinders) 
Shapeabilities Sprigs (Spellbinders Die D'Lites) 
"Build a Flower #2" (Cheery Lynn)



The thing about this box is that it's much easier to make than it looks, which is always good in my book!  You just need to make the inner box from card - or cover one you already have with pretty Funky Hand paper, then make the wrap-around cover to stick it in to! 


This cover is made in the same way used for the memo blocks I've shown on here in the past, but with an extra flap at the front.  You can find instructions for the memo block on THIS page of my blog
The layout for the pieces of chipboard (grey) on the coloured card is like in the picture below.
 Remember to use a bone folder in the gaps so that the cover will fold nicely.  Turn in the margin all the way around and then add the inner cover to conceal all the workings, use the bone folder again in the hinge sections, then adhere the lower piece of ribbon in place before adding the box section.
The upper ribbon is adhered to the centre of the top section of the wrap, and then the box is ready to decorate
 
Don't forget, this CD is on offer in the SHOP for just £1 at the moment so don't miss out! Here's a quick look at just some of the designs you'll get on the CD



We'd love to see what you make with Funky Hand goodies too.....
Thanks for visiting today

Pom Poms and Pillow Boxes

For something a little different - Pom Poms and Pillow Boxes!  I've made a pillow box with papers from Now That's Funky - Funky Diva papers and for the first time ever, I got the scores in the right place and the ends simply snapped shut!

And for added glam I made some pom poms - not made these since I was a kid and was great fun - the boys were in awe!

Special Teacher

A quick random selection of papers from Now That's Funky - Sweetie Pie collection.  I've printed some of the papers as A5 and also used some of the sentiment backers plus a sprinkling of co-ordinating card candy.


Nice and simple and rather practical!

Lollipop Flowers


Hi, it's Kathy today, and I've a couple of cards to share this time.
 I've made these using the pretty "Lollipop" colour-way from this month's showcase CD
"Now That's Funky"  

As you can see, I've used the same style for the background, but changed the LO for the flowers and the dies I've used to make them

card 1 

Materials and Tools
"Lollipop"  from the Funky Hand CD "Now That's Funky" 
the designs were printed onto Diamond White Bazzill card 
which has a lovely, subtle sheen 
hand cut banner, decal sentiment
Dies:
"Tea Rose medium" (Cheery Lynn)
Tiny circle punch
Notes:
I used my craft knife to cut an aperture in the card blank, then adhered the patterned paper behind it.
I cut a rectangle from the block design paper, then cut another rectangle from it to leave the narrow border piece


card 2


Materials and Tools
"Lollipop"  from the Funky Hand CD "Now That's Funky" 
the designs were printed onto Diamond White Bazzill card 
which has a lovely, subtle sheen 
 decal sentiment
Dies:
"Hybrid Rose" (DieNamics)
Leaves cut with "Build a Flower no2" die set (Cheery Lynn)

Notes:
This time I didn't cut an aperture in the card itself.
I cut another border piece from the leftover block-design rectangle from card 1, then just cut a smaller rectangle from the leafy, flowery design to fit inside.


Don't forget, this CD is on offer in the SHOP for just £1 at the moment so don't miss out! Here's a quick look at just some of the designs you'll get on the CD
