Christmas Sleigh Gift Box

Posted by Rajni Chawla

Good Morning All....

Hope you are all enjoying making Chrismas Cards for the coming season. Here is my another take on Celebrate the Season Collection. I made a Christmas Sleigh Gift box....a perfect gift for chocolates and candies. I m so sorry that I forgot to click the pictures of a side view of the box and the magnetic enclosure I made. I will try to edit the post and will update all the pictures. Thanks for keeping patience. 

Products from Heartfelt Creations:


Other Products Used: Black Archival Ink, Score Board, Cutting Machine, Distress ink Seedless Preserves, Spellbinder's Grand Label 1 die, Red Tacky Tape, White Cardstock

Instructions: For box 5 ½ “ by 5 ½. “ square thick white cardstock. Score at 1”” on all the four sides, which will make a height of the box. Following a simple box tutorial, slit on all four sides and tape the corners using red tacky tape. For the top and bottom layer cut 2 pieces from the smallest spellbinder grand label 1 die from white cardstock and mat them with pattern paper on both sides from the Celebrate the Season Collection. This will increase the strength of both bottom and top. Adhere the bottom piece to the base of the box using tacky tape. For attaching top lid you need a hinge of 1” by 3 ½” scored at ½ “. Stick one side of the hinge to the back of the box and the other side of the hinge to the top lid. Now mat both the sides of the lid with pattern papers. Once the box is ready distress the edges using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. To give a little frosty look on all the edges I have used Snowflakes paste and glitters. Also, cover all the sides of the inside of the box with pattern paper from the same collection. To decorate the sides of the box, I have used a long strip cut from HC Border Essential die. For the top decoration, cut one piece Sleigh from Ornate Sleigh and gift die from pattern paper and one piece from the white card stock. Also, cut gift boxes using the same die. Fix the base of Sleigh with glue forming an open pocket to hold all gift boxes. Decorate the Sleigh with glitters. Cut a bigger circle from pattern paper using Classic Circle die and decorate it with Arianna lace die.  The flowers are made with vellum using Tropical Hibiscus Cling Stamp Set and cut with Tropical Hibiscus Die. The sentiment is from  Gift Wrapped Presents Cling Stamp and stamped using black Archival Ink. Arrange all the elements as shown and add a ribbon bow for extra interest.

Real Life...A Mix Media Project for Dusty Attic

Posted by Rajni Chawla


Good morning all.

Here I am, Rajni Chawla from Passionately Curious back after a long break. Sorry for keeping you all waiting. Life is so boring and serious without Art. Flowers, Colours and Textures makes me happy. Today's project is my interpretation to July month"s mood board. I altered a simple cardboard frame for my handmade flowers and made a beautifully textured wall piece using Dusty Attic chippies, Various shades of Dusty in Colors and few metallic colors by prima.



July Mood Board

Here is the complete project. 

Dusty_attic_Real_Life (1)

The flowers are all handmade using supplies from Heartfelt Creations. I have used DA Ornate Frame #5 pieces from DA Jumbo Cogs,  DA Cogs #1 and DA Cogs #2 to create different layers. All the chipboards were first primed with Heavy gesso and then textured using DA texture paste. Different shades of Dusty in Colour acrylic paints are used to paint all chipboards and then highlighted with prima metallic colours. the colours used are...Dusty in colour Bisque,  Dusty in Colour Oceania,   Dusty in colour Sunburnt Orange and  Dusty in Colour Capri . The title " Real Life " is from DA Mini Captions #2.
Few more detailed pictures from different angles.
