Ocean Tales premium paper collection
I have had so much fun designing projects for Craft Consortium with this beautiful collection. Today, I was playing with my oval dies and the idea for this little box came to me. I hadn’t seen anything quite like this before but I doubt it is an exact original! If you use this idea, please credit me until we know better!
· Oval nesting dies - largest scalloped die for the base – 16.5
cm long (6 1/2”)
· next size down plain or stitched oval die -15cm
die cut larger oval from black card
find centre of length of oval and make 2
scorelines ½” apart (1.4cm)
cut smaller plain oval die and lay centrally
on larger die. Mark score lines to fit. Burnish one and cut the other.
cut a strip of card A4 x 1” and score
along the length at ½”. Snip into the card up to the score line every ¼”, then
diagonally to make “teeth” shape along edge.
use bone folder along the card strip to
ease into rounded shape and stick along the outside edge of the plain oval to
form a box.
use same plain die plus one even smaller to
cut matts and layers for box.
adhere ribbon under the initial matt to
form closure. Then decorate with stamps or other OceanTales embellishments and they are all fab.
Have fun with this idea that you can change up for most die shapes and depths of box.
See you soon
