Upcycled Cardboard Box

Hi. Posting the cardboard box that I made for Lulupu blog. Some of you might have already seen it there. I made this cute and large storage box for a friend of mine. She wanted an empty box to store some goodies and gift it to her hubby.

I won't go into the details about it. In case you are interested to know more about how I made it, the details can be found at Lulupu blog here.

The image below summarises how I made the box

Chipboard Love Album

This is a 5x7 Chipboard Love Album that I made on order. The abum has 6 leaves and so I have incorporated lots of folds inside to accomodate more pictures of the client. She is getting married soon and wanted to gift it to her would-be.

This is the cover of the album.
Page 1 and 2

Page 2 has a accordian fold mini card that opens up to display 4 photos. It has a tag behind for journalling.

Page 3 and 4

Page 3 has 2 photos placed in a pocket with a window. The pocket is big enough to hold more photos and has a tag that can be used for journalling.

Page 4 is a gatefold card that has to be untied. Did you see that cute dolpin charm? It was sent by Mallika as a RAK :)

The inside has a flap with a photo on it.

The flap opens up to reveal another photo and has a place to write messages.

Page 5 and 6

Page 5 is another folded card. There is a photo on top, and when untied it reveals 2 more photo and has space for writing.

Page 6 is another folded card with one picture on top and a sentiment written on a flap that overlaps on the photo.

The card opens up likes this.

Page 7 and 8

As you can see I made a heart shaped mini card on page 7. It has photos on top and inside.

Page 8 is a telescope card. (I guess I used most of the folds I knew :) LOL )

Page 9 and 10

On page 9, I made a joyfold card. 

On page 10 I made a variation of a pocket fold card so that it opens up to show a photo and space for journalling.

Some snapshots of the punched flowers...

The client loved the album and that makes me so happy :) Hope you too like it!

Jar Shaped Card - Red Flowers

Hi. This is my second post for the day. And this is my 2nd Jar Shaped Card posted in this week. I wanted to clarify as many people commented on my previous jar card that this is not a tag. It is a quite a tall, shaped card :) And yes the bg is a digi, I have not stamped it. I have used these pretty flowers from Itsy Bitsy that I won as a prize for my Shabby Chic Cart.  
 Here are both my jar cards posted in this week. You can see my all Jar Shaped Cards here.

Love theme Gatefold Card

This is a gatefold card that I made on valentine theme as DT of Lulupu blog. I have used MS Lace punch for the gatefold and weaved ribbon through it.
Once the ribbon is untied, this is how the inside of the card looks like. I have layered three hearts made from Tigerlily paper pad from Kaiser Craft. I hand-stitched the the middle of the hearts to secure them together.
 The layered heart is a mini card that opens upwards. The message can be written on the inside

Jar Shaped Card - Purple Flower

Hi. This is the second jar shaped card I have made till now. I love this shape and its pretty easy to embellish it as well. You can view my first jar shaped card here which I had made for my mom's birthday last year.
Nothing much really to say about the card, except that the flowers are all handmade.

Best Mom

You must have seen the sneak peek of my card that I made for Lulupu today. So here's the full story behind the Mother's Day Card that I made for this month's challenge at Lulupu #11 - My Mum, My World.

I had so much fun using these pretty pattern papers and layering them. I felt I could just go on and on with the layering. After a long time I used so many supplies in one card.

To start with, I chose a  flower shaped card base in yellow. To cover the base I have used this pretty paper from Zephyr A4 paper pad. Then I used a circular card board that comes inside a Muesli bottle lid, to give some height to the center part. I covered it with pattern paper from My Minds Eye - Blink of an eye collection. I topped this with the gorgeous die cut from Bo Bunny. The die cut is secured using pink colored Doodlebug brads crushed velvet. I created the MOM tags by hand cutting left over papers from My Minds Eye paper pack. I have used stickers from my stash for the letters. The yellow flower is made using daisy punch. I have also used the gorgeous cream fabric tape and decorated it with pearls.
