Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

We are going to use this fun Ai Mini Journal Box Die Set (5805) today to create and elegant box design. This box could be used for a wedding, shower, anniversary party, or even for Mother’s Day! You could place some sweet treats in the box…as I will do for mine. But you could also put some money, jewelry, or any other small gifts inside. However, keep in mind that this box was designed to hold your Mini Journals. The possibilities are endless!!!

These party favor boxes were inspired by the current Art Impressions Blog Challenge – Just for You – which is to create GC holders, pockets, gift bags, or boxes!

Let’s die cut a couple of boxes with some white 100lb cardstock. We can fold on the score lines and tape this together using some 1/8″ double-sided tape.

Now let’s add a beautiful liner to the inside of the boxes using some pretty Hero Art’s Gold Stencil Paste and using the Hero Arts – Leaf & Floral Ornate Stencil. This will add some texture, shimmer, and elegance!

While those liners are drying, we can die cut the Heart Clasp Die which is included in the Ai Slim Journal Template Dies (5806). We will die cut the clasp using some pretty metallic gold paper. We can easily assemble the clasp and we will be gluing it together to give the illusion of a faux clasp. Let’s center the clasp on the front of the box and trim away and excess. But….keep that excess because we are going to add this to the side of the boxes. This just finishes the look perfectly!

Going back the Ai Mini Journal Box Set we will die cut the lattice border 4 times. We will add these to the front and back panels of each of the boxes.

For a few finishing touches, let’s add a pretty white heart on the center of the hearts and then a few gold dust gems for added sparkle!

Please join us in this fun new challenge…we would love to see what you create!
