So I’ve taken a momentous step in my business, in closing down my classes and doing more online, blogging, video tutorials, product shares and Team building.
I have been running classes, teaching like minded crafters as well as total beginners – well most of them were complete beginners lol, how to make some amazing cards and techniques for the past 6+ years.
Along the way, many of my customers have become great friends, so I decided I wanted to make some lovely Thank you gifts & cards to show how much it has meant to me to have them join me every month for my classes. Some of them have been with me from the very beginning even before I set up the business, while I was learning my trade.
Over the next few days I will be sharing with you the gifts I made and how I made them. I gave them out at my farewell lunch they organised for me as their way of thanking me!
The first is a Pizza Box pop up calendar, post it & pen holder. It is primarily made from a pizza box which we sell and are in our Seasonal catalogue. It is a great little box, food friendly, so you could use it to put homemade cookies in and gift wrap it for a loved one. It will also hold our 3″ x 3″ envelopes so why not make some gorgeous cards and give it as a gift at Christmas?
Here are the measurements for the Cardstock (CS), inks etc I used. There are images below the video with links to my Online shop for you to order any or all of the products. I used four different colours of CS to make 4 different coloured boxes. So just substitute the coloured CS for the colour you like best:
1x PIZZA BOX (score box lid @ 2¾” from flap edge)
LEMON LIME TWIST CS 3⅜” X 3⅜” x2 (for top & bottom of box)
LEMON LIME TWIST CS 3⅜” X ⅞” x4 (for sides of box)
WHISPER WHITE CS 3¼” X 3¼” x1 (for bottom of box)
WHISPER WHITE CS 3¼” X 1¼” (for top)
WHISPER WHITE CS 3¼” X 6/8” x4 (for sides of box)
WHISPER WHITE CS 1⅝” x ⅝” (for Pen holder), SCORED @ ⅜”, ⅝, FROM BOTH ENDS
