Gift Box with Jamie

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Good Morning!  Jamie back with you today sharing a fun gift box embellished with one of my favorite ribbons, the Golden Olive Double-Faced Satin Ribbon!  There are 196 colors available in widths up to 2-1/4" on the online store, and you can even special order widths up to 4"!  

This box opens up on both ends to reveal a box inside, 

which is perfect for stashing candies in!

Here is the tutorial:
1.  Cut the boxes and mats then fold the boxes on the score lines.
2.  With the smaller box, place adhesive on the four side tabs and adhere them to the box sides to form its shape.  With the large box, place adhesive on the four tabs then adhere the long sides to them as shown.
3.  Adhere the smaller box inside the center of the larger.
4.  Place adhesive on the sides and the coordinating tabs then adhere those sides to the box and fold that tab over within the smaller box.  Do this for both sides. This will hold the center box in place.
5.  Adhere the mats in place and place your goodies in the box.
6.  Once mats are in place, I punched a small hole in each side so that I could run my ribbon through.
7.  I push the ribbon up through the holes and pull the ribbon tight as I close the box.
8.  Cut out the Thank You sentiment and adhere to a tag.  Note: I cut my Thank and You apart so that I could move them to fit my tag better.  Tie a bow on the box and then tie the tag to the bow.

The ribbon really gives the box an elegance!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Christmas Paper Treat Box by Grace

Friday, November 21, 2014

Hi there Ribbons Unlimited friends. Today I’d like to share a project that can easily be mass produced and could hold your favorite Holiday handmade gift or like me, just fill it up with candy and you are good to go.

1. Using a full 12x12 sheet of paper, Score at 1”, 4”, 8” and 11”. Turn the paper 90 degrees and repeat the scoring process. Fold on the scored marks. 

2. Cut at the 4” and 8” marks leaving a 4” square box in the center. If you desire, you can cut away 2x4” on each corner of the template. I did this for the first one to trim down the excess paper and the layers of paper won’t be too bulky but I found that it lost some important structure so I opted not to trim the corners on the second box.
Punch out a border on each edge of the box. Grabbing the two 2x4” pieces towards the center, adhere them together and then adhere one side of the box over them. Fold the edge over the front. 

3. To reinforce the structure of the first box, I adhered a strip of the red checkered ribbon around the box. 

4. Adhere the ends over each other using some glue dots. 

5. Punch out a hole on two adjacent sides of the box. Adhere the checkered ribbon over the gold trim. 

6. Thread both ribbons through your holes, and adhere the ends inside the box using some tape. 

7. Create two bows from the gold ribbon and adhere on the sides of the box, covering the holes you’ve created for the handle. 

 8. Add a sentiment block using paper and stickers. Repeat the process for how many boxes you need to make.

Here’s some more close ups…

Christmas Glittered Cards with Grace

Friday, November 14, 2014

Hello there ribbon friends.  It’s that time of the year again. I’m talking about tackling those holiday projects. Today I’d like to share a couple of cards where I used some ribbon and glitter to add some “shine” to these Holiday greetings.

1. Create your card base. Mine measured to 4 ¼ x 5 ½”

2. Cut a strip of the candy stripe ribbon and adhere it on the center of the card front horizontally. Cut staggered length of the pastel green satin ribbon to create the Christmas tree, don’t adhere yet.

3. Adhere a strip of adhesive on the center of the ribbon strips, pour glitter over it, press to adhere the glitter and dump the rest back into the container or on a scrap of paper. Use a paint brush to clean off the rest of the glitter on the ribbon. Decorate the tree with die cut and stickers.

4. For the frame card-  Adhere some of the pastel green trim around the card front using strips of adhesive.

5 Adhere another layer of adhesive over the center of the ribbon frame and add glitter, brushing off the excess. Decorate with stickers and die cuts.

Here are some pictures of the final product….

Thank you for joining me today and I hope this inspired you to add glitter to your favorite trims to make your next crafting project “sparkle “ even more.

Happy Creating,

Cheerleading Centerpiece with Jamie

Friday, November 7, 2014

Good morning!  Jamie back with you today!  We are gearing up for competitive cheer season and today I am sharing my new 3D Paper Megaphone!  This project is great for individual cheerleaders or to use as a table centerpiece!  

I am using the Silver Luxor Ribbon for both of these projects.  This ribbon has a delicious shimmer to it so it draws in a lot of attention AND it is wired so the bow really holds its shape well!  You can find more colors of the Luxor Ribbons here!

This file is really easy to assemble, you simply place adhesive on the tabs and wrap the paper around and adhere the tabs to the paper to form the cone shape.  Layer the banner and adhere with a foam square to the megaphone then adhere the cheer sentiments in place and adhere with foam to the banner.  Tie the Silver Luxor Ribbon around the handle in a bow then tie twine around the bow center.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
