Hi, Linda W. here, and I am so glad to share with you my latest project! Today is the actual launch of the new boxer and envelobox creator. I was really anxious to receive mine from Crafter's Companion, so that I could make up a few projects for gifts for friends. I participate in a great scrapbook/card making group and we have many contests and prizes, so this wonderful ACCORDION BOX FILE is one of my handmade creations just for a friend!
S.W.A.L.K. "JULIE" from Patchwork Polly & Friends graces the cover. I colored with my copics and added a bit of glitz and glitter before fussy cutting. Note the stuffed puppy and her writing case sitting next to her. I found a great leather attachment from my stash to just dangle from the side. A few silk flower buds and yo yo flowers, and wallah! This whole project took about 1.5 hours from start of stamping the image to completion of the file.
I figured my friend would even love the placement of several S.W.A.L.K. images placed inside so she could just color anytime and anywhere. Here's basically how I made the Accordion box and I'm sure you cannot find an excuse as to why you wouldn't be able to create one too!
Ultimate Crafter's Companion so began by making those up. These are standard A2 envelopes and all of the instructions are provided.
I used a beautiful sheet of 8.5x11 Pearlescent pink cardstock from Crafter's Companion USA to make my cuts for the exterior sheets. The front sheet is essentially the same size as the envelopes you use, as you don't necessarily have to use A2. You can use larger envelopes and not cut them apart, just slit the tops of each. This is what I did as I wanted envelopes large enough to accommodate 4.25x5.5 images.
I REALLY encourage you to order yourself the Ultimate Crafter's Companion with the NEW Boxer Boards. The DVD that accompanies them is very well done and provides a lot of projects for every step of your expertise, including several bonus projects! I have tried several other boards for doing envelopes and boxes and to date I have found NOTHING better than the Ultimate Crafter's Companion.
