Altered Altoid Tin - Winter Gift Box

The Winter holidays are closing in on us... Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwaanza.....

How do you give a gift? Sometimes you need beautiful wrapping to give a special gift, and sometimes, a special gift is very tiny!  And just sometimes, the wrapping is better than the gift!

What kind of gift will fit inside of an Altoids Tin?
  • Gift Cards
  • Cash
  • Coins
  • Jewelry
  • Handwritten notes
  • Keys to a new CAR!

The Robin's Nest products:

Snow Rub-On
Winter Snow Flakes Chipboard
Winter Retreat Snowflake Cardstock
Doillie Die Cuts
Dew Drops
Diamond Drops

While this is a very easy project, I have to point out how DELICIOUS the SNOW RUB ONS look on top of this patterned paper!  FAB!


I also used part of the label of the rub-on on my design  - "snow fun" was the product title just above the UPC code which I used as part of my design,

Thanks for stopping by today - - and keep stopping by for more holiday cheer!

Have a crafty weekend!



It is snowing outside

Colleen here from Michigan where it really does snow and it is winter now.  I figured since you can't beat it why not join in on the fun and make a winter card.




Supplies used:
Dinosaur cardstock
Hunter Green with Green Glitter Cardstock
Forest Tree Specialty Paper
Wedding Cut Outs Cardstock
Iridescent Glitter Cardstock
Metallic Gold Dew Drops

Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect
Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect

I layered all my papers and then when I put the Wedding Cutouts Cardstock on, the white just didn't fit so I added ink to get the color of green I wanted.


I used a couple of snowflake punches to punch out the snowflakes, the green snwoflake was from the Hunter Green with Green Glitter Cardstock and the smaller snowflakes were punched using Iridescent Glitter Cardstock.  I finished the big snowflake off with a Metallic Gold Dew Drop in the center.  

I used a punch to create the ribbon looking border and then backed it with the Hunter Green with Green Glitter Cardstock.  To finish off the card I made a little bow.  The bows are so easy and quick to make.

You decide how big you want your bow and then cut a strip of paper to that length.  After I made the first one I decided I didn't want the inside of my bow white so I inked the back of the paper.


Now put a little of the Best Glue Ever in the center of the paper and bring both ends to the center, hold for a second for it to dry.  The Best Glue Ever dies quickly and holds things in place very well.  Once you have it to that point, pinch it together in the middle and then wrap a very tiny piece of paper around the center and put some of the Best Glue Ever on the back to hold it in place.  While that is drying cut another smaller piece of paper and bend it in half, add some of the Best Glue Ever and stick it to the back of the bow.  Trim the ends of the ties and your bow is finished.  You can either add Dew Drops to the center of leave it plain.


Now glue your bow onto your card and you are done making a very quick, easy and fun card.

White on White Christmas Cards showcasing dew drops


Hi.. it's Bev back here again. I created white on white cards for ScraPerfect with a cross promo with Robin's Nest so I wanted to share them here with you too. I am using some of their amazing products while making these cards and showcasing dew drops.

Supply List:


 


 

 
 Here are my 2 cards and I'll start by sharing some of my tips to using white on white.

 

First you will need papers that are different shades of white along with any other white base products like vellum and any other white accents that you have. Also using embossing folders and dies allows for better depth and texturing also. For sparkle I pulled stickles.

On the 2 cards above I used vellum, white papers, white diamond dew drops  and white dew drops.

I then added some embossed layers and some die cuts. AND this is the first time I am not inking the edges... wanted a clean pure all white card. They were accented with glittery stickles for sparkle.


When working with dew drops the Embellie Gellie is perfect. A small amount of it on the end of the stick allows you to pick up these small accents, add glue to them and then place them on the project.


Holding  the dew drops on the end of the Embellie Gellie stick allows you at a small amounts to the dew drops and then place them on the exact spot on the card. The fine non clog writer tip makes this process so easy.

Last but not least... when you have sticky gluey fingers the Best Cleaner Ever is perfect for this job and so many other cleaning jobs.

Thanks for stopping by today... hope to see you again soon.



Christmas card showcasing Dew Drops


hi .. so how are you today. It's Bev at the Robin's Nest today and  I am sharing this fun but simple designed Christmas card. I am showcasing dew drops.




On my computer screen you can see the card I was scraplifting .... from Mary's Handmade cards. Thanks Mary. I loved it instantly and since I own so many fabulous Robin's Nest dew drops it was a perfect project for me. 
I started with my white cardstock single card base and estimated the cut out image space. 
I then used signo white gel pen and doodled the image portion... just freehand and no pressure... just doodle.


Here is what I looks like up close. Nothing too detailed.. simple but elegant.


Using the single card base I cut out the frame to fit my design.


It gets glued behind. If you like you can foam pop it for depth.



Now using the ScraPerfect (cross promo) Embellie Gellie applying the dew drops is so much easier. You pick them up using the stick with a bit of gellie on the end.



Then add glue to back and position it onto the project and release in place. It's that easy.


I then glued it to the full colour card base for added layers of colour. I black pen stitched doodled around the edges.


To finish it I using small words chipboards from Creative Embellishments and inked them to match the card.


These dew drops and many more styles, shapes and colours are available at the STORE. Be sure to visit the blog often when all DT share their amazing projects daily.

Thanks for stopping by.. hope to see you again soon.

Christmas tags with Ornaments

Merry Christmas!

Can you believe that it is already time to share our
Christmas ideas!

I have been working on a series of Christmas tags.

These tags are large  6x11 inches,
so they are for large gifts,
but they can also be used for ornaments on your
Christmas tree.



I will call this tag the ornament tag.

I have used 3 products on this tag,

Cindy Lou Dot Glitter Cardstock Christmas CutOuts Lime Green Glitter Chipboard








This is just a simple tag with ornaments cut out from the glitter cut out sheet
and added to the tag.  All other products are from my scrapbook stash.

Have a great Christmas season!

Snowman

Today I am coming with very quick card but I think t is cute


I made card with Snowman

I have used:

First I cut four squares from my card stock, one a little bit smaller than other. I used two as my background
From the other two squares I cut shapes so they can look like a hills
I added some snow paste on them so they can look like covered with snow
I started adding my hills and between them I placed my snowman
In the end I added two clouds (covered in snow paste) and snowflakes. My snowman got eyes, buttons and nose made from dew drops and in the end I added Happy Christmas and placed everything on craft card base.


Hope you like my card :)

Believe in Santa Layout

Jingle bells add the perfect finishing touch to my Holiday layout so I created some mini faux bells with Round Metallic Gold Dew Drops.  Let me show you how.
Robin's Nest Supplies: Red Snowflake Cardstock, Red Rope Glitter Cardstock, Metallic Gold Dew Drops, Belgian Chocolate Boy Rub-on, Red Glitter Alpha Stickers, Glitter Holiday Word Titles, Dew Dew Glue

Other Supplies: Jingle Bell Rubber Stamp (Anita's), Gold Embossing Powder (Stampendous), VersaMark Ink Pad (Tsukineko), Heat Gun (Ranger), StazOn White Ink Pad (Tsukineko), White Gelly Roll Pen (Sakura), red / black / green / white cardstock, ribbon, permanent black marker, four photos

Directions:
1. Adhere a strip of red cardstock over Snowflake Cardstock covering the bottom two rows.

2. Stamp six jingle bell images onto black cardstock using VersaMark Ink and heat emboss with gold powder. Carefully fussy cut them out and tie six mini bows with 1/8" ribbon. Place them in a row at the top of the red cardstock and attach the bells as if they are hanging.

3. Select four photos. Matte the main photo with green cardstock and attach a 1" wide ribbon along the lower edge of the photo. Apply the sentiment from the Belgian Chocolate Boy Rub On Set directly to the photo.

4. Next, create a frosty edge by applying white permanent ink unevenly to the edge of another photo using a sponge applicator. Use a gentle tapping motion to make a hazy looking edge and then set aside to dry.

5. Embellish the final two photos with faux mini jingle bells. Use a black permanent marker to draw the opening slits at the bottom of the bell. Attach three Metallic Gold Dew Drops as faux jingle bells vertically along the edge.

6. Cut the title "Santa" from Glitter Word Holiday Titles. Matte it with red cardstock and trim away a triangular end making a banner style title. To help the word stand out, trace around each letter with a white gel pen. Add the word "in" with mini alphabet stickers. Adhere Red Glitter Alpha Stickers to spell the word "Believe" onto white cardstock and finish off by trimming away a triangular end and matting with green cardstock. Adhere the finished title.
