Hello, friends! After a much needed summer break, the NinaB Designs team is back to showcase some of Nina‘s designs for our monthly hop. Make sure you check out the new Summer CHA Releases by Spellbinders, Want2Scrap and Penny Black, and her monthly release by The Craft’s Meow.
For this month’s hop, Nina challenged us to create something with gift-giving in mind. For my project I decided to create a tag and a matching small box. You can find the tutorial for the box HERE.
I started by creating a tag. The tag base was cut and embossed out of Kraft cardstock with a die from Tags & Flags
. My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland paper
was cut and embossed with the same die, sanded
and cut down on the embossed edge. 3/8″ wide strip of paper from the same paper pack was added before the edges were stitched and seam binding was tied around the paper. It was then adhered to the tag base.
More Winter Wonderland paper was cut and embossed with the tree die from Sweet Folk Art
. A small piece of Kraft cardstock was cut and embossed with the same die to create the tree stem. Buttons were stitched to the tree. Handmade Lilybeedesigns paper
was cut and embossed with the small star from Sweet Folk Art, sanded and adhered to the top of the tree.
The box base was created out of Kraft cardstock and was decorated with more Winter Wonderland paper and seam binding. The top corners were cut with Crop-a-Dile Cloud Chomper
. Another sentiment from Season’s Greetings was stamped on Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Nested Lacey Pennant
die. Again part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl and rhinestones from a Sleek Strip Silver Rhinestones on the bottom left were added to finish the box.
Hershey Nuggets were covered with 1″ wide strips of the Winter Wonderland paper. If I had some Candy Canes, I think I would have added those to my box, but it’s a bit too early to find those in the stores.
Here are these NinaB. Designs products I used for my project:
