Gifting ideas with Die Cut Boxes

11:00 am Dotstolines 6 Comments

Hello everyone,
Today we are so thrilled! It's our first post for Papericious this term and it's a dream come true!

The Papericious September release has so many fun products, especially the die cut boxes for the coming festive season.

These boxes come in a pack of 5 with different shapes, pre- scored and pre-taped in a stiff 350g Ivory Paper. They are sturdy enough for stenciling with various mediums, spraying with colors and inking.

The best thing is these make great gift boxes for any occasion.

Today we've picked three of these boxes and designed them. Here's a look at them.

Popcorn Box

For this box, we used the Azealian Paper pack. We've alternated two patterned papers for the sides inside and out. To embellish, we die cut a lace border and a doily and layered it. We completed it with some mulberry friends. 

Favor Box with Handle

For this box, we used the Indie Chic Paper pack and cut some elements from the die cut sheet in the pack to embellish the box. For the base, we used a stencil with distress ink first and then layered our papers. The base paper layer was die cut to achieve the zigzag border. 

Cake Pie Box

For this box we've used the Back to Basics Paper pack for our layering. We used the Sigma card stock to make some paper flowers. We used some lace for the layering. 

Like you can see, it is really easy to decorate these boxes and it doesn't take too long. 

Supplies used:

Hope you enjoyed our post and are inspired to create your own!

Diwali Windchime and Diwali layout or BOTH

Hello people!!
Chirali this side with a very first post as a DT member of Papericious and when it's the first and Diwali is just a few days away, it had to be something special. 

I have two things to share with you for upcoming Diwali to decorate your home, which can be put together and make all the new ONE whole thing. As name suggests, one is Diwali layout and other is a Diwali windchime. 

Here is the mixed media layout:

Diwali is a colourful festival so I have made it quite colourful. This is an inner ring of embroidery hoop. I added a net, glued it to the corners and started heating it with heat gun. As the net was made of plastic, it started melting, stopped when I felt and the design happened. Then added a piece of paper, some cord and some stones. (stones are broken pieces of a dried modelling paste) Then I gessoed everything, added some acrylic paints and finished it with Papericious tempting chalk paints (Duck Egg and Pearl Pink). Finally I decorated it with beautiful newly released chipboards, some flowers from the stash and some colour sprinkles. DONE. 

Some close ups:

Now, here is the Diwali windchime:

This is an outer ring of an embroidery hoop. The papers are from LIMITED EDITION Diwali pack. They are so gorgeous and perfect for the festival. I made a bunch of houses and hanged it. 

Now, when I have used both the rings, why not to combine it to make one? Here is the look of  a complete hoop:

Now, the trump card!! These houses are closed with clips, you pull it and you can put in a candle, ofcourse a battery operated. You must want to see it!! ;) 

Isn't it perfect to lighten up your house this Diwali?

This is the inner ring and now the combined one!!
