Pizza box brief case

Hello again!

Here are a few more gift boxes that I've made over the weekend. I used the pizza boxes for these. I added the handle and the tab in the front to make it look like a brief case. Aren't they cute?

Thanks for tuning in.

Pizza box Purse


Here is another purse I made using the pizza box design. I haven't seen this purse on the web. But if I can come up with this, I am sure someone probably also came up with the same idea. Any way here is the tutorial if you would like to make one. It sure is adorable.


6 x 12 card stock, 7 inches wire, Velcros, big shot, circle scallop

Score your 6 x 12 the same as you would with the regular pizza box, 1 & 5 the long way and 1, 4, 5, 8, and 9 the other way.

Cut to the 1" score line.

You'll have 3" excess. Cut out half a circle like this to make the purse flap.

Then using the big shot. Cut out a scallop circle and trace half a circle like this

glue it on the inside flap. Then punch two holds for the wire. Assemble the box

and you'll get this.


Thanks for visiting today. Have a terrific Tuesday!

Matchbox brief case

Good Morning!

Wow, what a productive week for me. I had lots of items made. This is one of them. I was making TopNote gift boxes for my friends/customs at the hospital. Most of the boxes that I've made were more for females. And they also wanted something for males. So they asked me if I could make male gift boxes. Of course I could and this brief case is one of the male gift boxes that I've made.

I've created this matchbox just to fit the gift card. It's bigger than Stampin' Up! matchbox. I was so into making them that I forgot to take pictures for the tutorial. If you're interest in making this brief case, leave me a comment. I'll be happy to do the tutorial. Or I'll do one anyway. It's so darn cute!

Check back tomorrow to see what I have to show you.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day!

Birthday card

Good Afternoon,

I CASED this card from "Freedom in Creations." I needed a masculine card and as you can see I don't make card very often. I only make cards when I needed them. I heard you why don't I make a bunch of different cards and keep them handy? I didn't want to do that. I wanted the card to be special for who ever I am giving the card to.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a wonderful weekend!

Swan tutorial

Good Morning,

Here is the swan tutorial for those who were interested.
I always put my units in circles while I was folding them. One circle equal 100 units. Somehow it seem faster for me when I put my units in circles.

We are going to go by row.

First row will use 30 units. Apply glue only at the bottom. See picture. Glue all the 30 units

like this.
Glue ends together like this.

Then turn it like this. Wait until glue dry completely before start row 2.

Row 2 also used 30 units. Note how I interlock the second row. The longest size of the unit is facing up. Interlock between two units in row 1. NO Glue needed from here on.

Row 2 completed.


Row 3 also used 30 units. Note how I interlock on row 3. The longest size of the unit is facing down. This is how you are going to interlock the units from now on. Also start shaping the base of the swan. See picture.

Row 3 completed.

Continue with the following rows:
Row 4: used 30 units

Row 5: used 30 units

Row 6: used 30 units

Here is the picture of row 6 completed.

Row 7 is where you are going to divide the wings, the tail, and the neck. I splited the base in half. Then from the red ribbon I skipped three pointy. See next picture.

Row 7: (from here on you are going to work only on the two wings).

Add only 12 units on each wing. I used a different color so it'll be easier for you to see.

Other end of row 7.

Row 8

Add only 11 units on each wing.

Row 9

Add only 10 units on each wing.

Keep reducing one unit as you move higher on the wing.

Row 10 used only 9 units on each wing.

Row 11 used only 8 units on each wing.

Row 12 used only 7 units on each wing.

Row 13 used only 6 units on each wing.

Row 14 used only 5 units on each wing.

Row 15 used only 4 units on each wing.

Row 16 used only 3 units on each wing.

Row 17 used only 2 units on each wing.

Final row used only 1 units on each wing.

After completed the wings go back to row 7 (where the wings were created). You are going to create the tail and the neck.

Add 3 units on the tail size and the neck size.

Add 4 units on the tail size and the neck on row 8.

Add 3 units on each size to row 9.

Add 2 units on each size to row 10.

Add 1 unit on each size to row 11. The tail size is now completed.
Use 30 units to make the neck like this and place it on the size for the neck.

Make two circles. 55 units for the bigger base and 45 units for the smaller base.

Stack the smaller base on top of the bigger base like this.

Place your finished swan in the center. You can leave the wings like this
Or turn them out like this. The wings are flexible since no glue was used. Once you've decided on the wings style use liquid glue (like Podpodge) to glue on the inside of the swan.

If you make one, I would love to see it.

Thank you for visiting.

One Sheet Wonder

I always have a hard time creating a card. So I thought I'll give the One Sheet Wonder a try. I got the template from a Kimberley Morris' blog. I don't know if my cards still call the One Sheet Wonder because I used the entire 12 x 12 pattern paper and I added the black paper to mount the pattern paper. It was a lot easier but it still took me more than three hours. I thought the result wasn't too bad.

Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.
