Adhesives - Quick Tip

Hi Everyone, Today I have a chart showing you the best adhesives for each project type. I hope you find it helpful.
For me I like to use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue, as I find it gives me the chance to move my project into place. (wiggle room) as a lot of people would say. I also love my Silicone Craft Sheet as if you are a little heavy handed with your glue it doesn't get all over your work surface. When it dries on your craft sheet it will then peel off keeping your craft sheet and your work surface nice and clean. you can find this chart in your 2018 - 2019 Annual Catalogue on page 213.
If you would like to purchase any of these products please give me call or email me so that I might help you with your project.
Hugs Diane

Very Small Gift Box

Here is a tutorial for this very small gift box. It will hold 1 Ferrero Rocher Chocolate it measures
1 3/8 inch square and is just perfect for that little gift or surprise. The 1st time I made these I did them Christmas colours and put little tags on them to place around the table on Christmas Day.



Card Stock           2 3/8 x 6 inches
                               2 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches
DSP                       1 ¼ x 1 ¼ Square (6 of these)

On the large piece of card stock, score on the short side at ½ and 1 7/8 inch marks.
Turn card to the long side and score at 1 3/8, 2 ¾, 4 1/8 and 5 ½ inch marks.
On the small piece of card stock, score on the short side at ½ and 1 7/8 inch marks.
Turn and score on the long side at 1 3/8 and 2 ¾ inch marks.
Burnish all the score lines on both pieces of card stock.
Cut away the shaded areas on the card stock as shown in the pictures below.


Making sure that on the small piece of card stock you cut on the inside of the score line.
Now glue the 2 pieces of card stock together as shown in the picture below.



Add your DSP pieces to the 6 squares. Using a ½ inch hole punch, punch a half circle into the last full square on the long piece of card.
Glue the 4 tabs as shown below.


Now fold to form a small box.
