Papercraft Challenge #24...

Hi! Welcome to the November challenge at the Papercraft Challenge blog. We have a new challenge starting on the first of every month. I am here today bringing you some mid-month inspiration. Do visit the Papercraft Business site for some great tools that can help you take your papercraft business to the next level. Like the awesome Papercraft Business Planner that helps you keep track of your favorite challenges!

The theme for November is – To Give as a Gift (Not just a card)

I love making tags, they are just so cute! So I made some tags and a gift box to put them in as my inspiration.

  • Take a bunch of colored paper and die cut circles.
  • Die-cut circles and hearts from ivory paper.
  • Stamp the small cupcake images from the Sweet Cakes stamp set by Simon Says Stamp on the hearts and color with alcohol markers.
  • Assemble the tags, punch holes towards the top and tie some ribbons. Here is a look at the tags.

  • I used my new We R Memory Keepers Gift Box Punch Board to create my box out of kraft cardstock.
  • Cut a band out of pattern paper and create a cuff that fits around the box.
  • Die-cut a circle of ivory paper and a butterfly out of the pattern paper. I used the Isabella Butterfly die by Memory Box.
  • Adhere the circle to the band and add the butterfly to the top left. Add a clear gem as a finishing touch.

I hope my project inspires you to create something beautiful. Do remember to check out the Papercraft Challenge blog for inspiration from the rest of the design team. There are lots of creative creations that you will love! 

The winning prize: Magnolia - Magnolia – Edwin with Sack
