Vintage Affair

Hello Readers ,
I am Mallika from Aola Handmade Cards again with a new DT project .
This project I have name it as " Vintage Affair " . The name specifically denotes that how hooked I am to my favorite style vintage . I am actually having an affair with it .
This is basically a Handmade jewelry box / Chocolate box / Letter box { Limitless possibilities }
I was super confused about which picture to upload first .. so I uploaded all the shots randomly .
The entire box was initially painted by black acrylic paint mixed with brown . The MDF box was let to dry .
Once I had sookha box { Believe me I have no patience to wait } I started chopping my sheets by  my Tonic Trimmer before it dried .
I used some beautiful patterned paper from my stash as the base .
I did some paper tearing today after a long time .
Can you see that rose ?? yeee that's Handmade ! I was so happy after finishing it .
The little key and memories word is from my stash .
Can you see that flourish ?? That is Victorian Romance Flourish by Cherry Lynn .  { SURPRISE - Crafters Corner is giving 20% discount on all cherry lynn designs }
I used some buttons from my stash .
The flower which is used in the side wall is a Marrianne Die which will be available soon .
Can you see how I did the lid with jute twines . I had most fun doing that though I almost burned my fingers doing that . I hate Glue guns and their Tacky Behavior :P
For the inside I was really confused of what should I keep.{ I still can't afford a diamond necklace for keeping inside }Like always little note cards came to rescue .
I made these quick note cards . The papers used are from various stacks .
I have used the beautiful Die Floral Ovals  .
The entire box has been distressed using these Gorguss inks available at our store ofcourse at best price too.
I kept some bhoosa for doing justice with its vintage look .

PS - Do you know you can make beautiful roses using this die .

I hope you all will leave your valuable feedback .

my crafty friends,Kavitha here to share another dose of inspiration with you all and of course based on our challenge theme  Flower's and Celebration.

  I have made a card with lots of supplies that are available in crafters corner(what's not available??hehe).
I have used lots of liquid pearls in this card which is a new product in our store.There are endless possibilities to use them,but i am showing the basic thing for which they are meant for,yes making beautiful pearl effects with them.Liquid pearls dries as it is,that is they never go flat even after it dries.SO you can add some beautiful pearls to your project within minutes.Yes,the whole thing i have done around the die cut just took me 2 mins,inst it great.I am sure arranging real pearls will take more than 20 mins.And you can also create various size pearls with just one tube and these are also available in different colors.

Other supplies i have used are papers from DCWV garden party,beautiful die cuts from spellbinders-asian motif and Marianne leaves,Fiskars  Lasting love quote stamps,Beautiful curly mulberry roses and chipboard accents which all are available only at crafters corner at very reasonable rates.

 Hope you liked my inspiration,finally i want to thank you all again for showing us immense love and support:)
Keep them coming:)

How to make a Door Box Hanger - Tutorial Special

Hello Friends ,

This is Mallika here with a tutorial .
Its a sincere request , please excuse my cluttered desk . It is way too cluttered and I can't help it .
When I craft I require everything beside me .
I will teach you how to make a sturdy door box hanger which can be used to hold the daily  newspaper  , some flowers or some chocolates etc .
Step 1 -
Take a 12 by 4.5 inches of cardstock
I have trimmed it using my Tonic Trimmer from the Store Crafters Corner . 

Step 2 - 
take another cardstock of 12 by 8 inches 

Step 3 - 
Take a Score Board , Score at 1.5 , 2.5 , 7 , 8 inches keeping the longer side on the edge .

Step 4 - 
Now turn around your sheet by 90 degrees and Score at One inch

Step 5 - 
Fold along your score line . Kindly excuse the picture used as I have used a 700 gsm Paper . 

Step 6 - 
Now at 1 inch line , cut along the score line till 1 inch down . 

Step 7 - 
Fold is along and make a box  , simply by sticking the tabs .

Step 8 - 
Now take your circle nesting dies , even square or scallop square / circle will do . 

Step 9  - 
Take that 12 by 4.5 inch cardstock , try to keep the die right in the middle up . 
Run it along your Big Shot .

Step 10 - 
You  will have something like this 

Step 11 - 
Stick the box , it will appear something like this 

Step 12 - 
Now simply Embellish the way I have done :) 
 I have used the beautiful Polka Dot spellbinder die , totally in love with it !! 
I have also used Marianne Leaves . This is one basic die to work with . 
The mulberry flower used is also from the store . Our Site has bful range of mulberry flowers !! The color range is nowhere to be found !! 
For scoring you can buy from our store exclusive Score boards  from Martha Stewart .
For nesting dies .. click here 
I have used Garden Party stack sheets from DCWV from the store , Incase you guys are wondering about the pattern paper .
