Finally The Box Tutorial!

Happy Thursday,






Finally here is the tutorial for the filigree box using Spellbinders Gold Elements one die for the peony card.  I have added a few pictures to this post to remind you of the card and box and also to show this in a different colour as by the time  I made the tut i was all out of the deep violet card I used! lol


This version is made in the same 300gsm cardstock (from my LIDL stash) in Warm Pink and a Blush Pink.  I have tried to keep to the idea of 2 complimentary colours as this softens the finished project.





 Here is the finished article, next week the peony and card tutorial.
...and here is the video tutorial.

As you will see if you watch the quality is not great we will work on that however with Wendy working as magic hands keep an eye for for her, and the laughter.


Finally I have added a picture of the original as that seemed the favourite colour combo!

Enjoy...

  1. Absolutely "1st class" brilliant and very easy to follow.
    Wendy is right I am sure we will see a lot of these in Blogland very soon.
    I will certainly have a go when I get some free time which is very short supply at the moment.
    Thank you for all your hard work

  4. Hola John
    Just watched the video. Great explanations and camera work. Mr D thought it was a posh sandwich wrapper. . . . . . Now there's a thought. . . . . .
    Thanks to both of you for your time putting this together.
    Also, your gorgeous card filigree card has arrived. Mr Postie gave the box a bit of a bash but the card is perfect so thank you once again.
    Have a great day and don't forget to let me know about that die.

  12. I've just watched the video John and what a masterpiece!! So easy to follow what you have done and thank you Wendy for your camera skills as well. I think I actually prefer the pink version. I have a lot of wedding anniversary cards ordered to do for ruby, pearl and diamond so this is giving me food for thought as it would make them quite special. With my best wishes Jackie

    I missed this the first time around as I was at my sisters in Wales and she doesn't have the internet.
    What a very superb box and tutorial. Great and superb designing as always, and very clear instructions on the tutorial.
    Now I can feel a purchase looming as I don't have this die. lol.
