Happy Mail Embellishment Box

Who doesn't love happy mail? Whether you love creating them, 
getting them or both, these little Embellishment Boxes make the sweetest 
gifts...especially when they're filled with Doodlebug Designs' goodness!


I started with this clear, plastic storage box that I found at The Dollar Tree; 
it measures approximately 7.5" X 1.75" X 6.5" and has a hinged lid.  




To begin I traced the top and bottom sections of the lid onto 12X12 paper
 and then cut out.  I used a double-sided adhesive sheet to completely
 cover the backside of the trimmed paper and then attached to the lid.  
As you can see, there is a small domed portion in the center, which is left uncovered.  
I love how the embellishments show through! 

Next I sorted through the various die-cuts from the Simply Spring Collection 
and decorated the front as shown.  

Keep in mind the pattern direction of the paper as you'll be able to see 
it once the box is opened :)

Onto the really fun part: filling the compartments with goodies!  
Make layered tags, bows, clips and samplers of washi tapes, stickers and die-cuts.  
For a filler I used crinkle paper that was tucked into sections as needed.





Here are a few ideas to make all-ready-made items unique: 
  • Use embroidery floss cards to wrap samplers of washi tape and twine around
  • Combine 2-3 small containers of glitter by wrapping them with baker's twine and then embellish further with a cute mini tag
  • Add ribbon or twine to the all ready adorable Jelly Clips
  • Cut apart Cute Clips and dress up the top with a strip of folded-over patterned paper
  • Attach small stickers to Mini Clothes Pins

And if you love stamping and die-cutting you'll surely want to color-up some
 of these cute mini layered tags!  Here I've used alcohol markers to color in the
 images and then embellished further with a glitter brush pen and 
enamel dots for the cheeks!

I hope that you've enjoyed taking a peek at this project and will whip 
one up for your favorite crafty friends!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!


Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
