Christmas Paper Lantern + Design Team Announcement!

August 01, 2017

It is official, I'm a new member of  the Neat and Tangled Design Team!! It  will be an honour to serve the stamping world  as part of the Neat and Tangled family together with the most amazing papercraft artists.

Today I'm sharing my first official video  using beautiful Neat and Tangled products and I'm  also  sharing various handy crafty ideas. 

What you will see in the video:

  • An easy way  to alter the size of  die cuts using background dies
  • An easy watercolor technique 
  • A quick tip to add  metallic colour to die cuts and ribbons. 
  • You will  also learn how to make the box in the pictures.
Below is a picture of the die cut I have altered  using Modern Triangles Cover Plate Die.  Just follow the very simple steps shown in the video ( I used shortened panels at the side of the box)

This box measures 9" x 5"  (23 x 12.5 cm).

I had the idea to make a paper lantern  and inside the box I  added  a Ramsta mini led lamp by IKEA.

You can see the how the box looks with the light on and off in the pictures below.

I also love easy colouring and  I used neutral  shades  looking for   colour coordination between the  stamped images, the paper and the embellishments. 

I  think this box  will also make beautiful  gift bags or children's goodie bags and if instead of vellum you use acetate at the back of the die cut panels this box will be ideal packaging for  treats  such as cookies, brownies, cupcakes, chocolates ...etc.

That's all for today... I really hope you enjoyed the project today.
