There is a stand alone page on this blog titled tutorials but I also wanted to have some of the posts labelled as well so it is easier to go to where you want to see them together. I hope this will make things a bit easier and that you find them helpful.
This gift card box makes a great gift for someone or you can just keep it for yourself and have a supply of gift cards on hand. They can be themed or blank general cards. I mix & match the colours & papers & embellishments so each design is different but still look good together. 2 sheets plain cardstock makes 8 cards at 20x10cm each. Another piece of plain cardstock is used for the matting & I use 2 sheets patterned paper for the top layer. Embellishments & stamping decorate each card.
These take a little time to make but they are lots of fun to do. You could also make up a mixed box by using up some of the scrap paper stash.

I spent a morning making some flowers that I have been wanting to do for awhile but never had the time until now. I experimented with a few different materials and there were some that turned out better than others.
These gold swirl flowers were made from a 3cm wide 2m long ribbon that was twisted as it was coiled around the center which was made with a knot at the end of the ribbon. I cut out a circle of card & adhered double sided tape over all of it. (A glue gun would work as well but mine is still packed & I'm not sure which box it is in!) As I twisted the ribbon I stuck it down as I went. Buttons were stuck in the center.
With all these wonderful flower embellishments you can make it will seem like Spring has come early!
