Hot Air Balloon Party Favor Box

By : Team Craftwell
Design Team: Pam Bray Week 15 Cycle 9

There are few things in the world as magical as a hot air balloon, and when you put that magic into a party favor, it really brings something special to the event! See how Pam Bray create these cute favor boxes below!

Hi today I am sharing with you how to  make Hot Air Balloon Party Favor Boxes. These are super easy to make and can be used for lots of different occasions...

Start by getting your eBosser ready with the platforms and your hot air balloon die, along with your Core'dinations Nostalgic Paper Pad. Cut two of each of the balloons using your favorite papers from the paper pad. 

This is the amazing part...see how many of the balloons you can place on the eBosser platforms using Teresa Collins Damask Embossing Folder. 

After you have your hot air balloon cut and embossed, sand both sides using your sanding block.

Stack the balloons and sew down the center.

Cut your box out, using the eBosser and Teresa Collins Woodgrain Embossing Folder, emboss. Ink front and back of pieces and form box. 

Here is a closer look at the box once it was formed and decorated. 

I placed my ho tair balloon into the box and added candy after it was decorated. I hope you enjoyed my Hot Air Candy Box Party Favor Box and try to make some for yourself.

Wedding Banner Tags

By : Team Craftwell
Design Team: Jessica Kephart Week 15 Cycle 9

Jessica Kephart welcomes the week with a little wedding project! See it below!

Good Morning everyone! Jessica here from Homespun Elegance again for another fabulous project with our July Featured Sponsor, CORE'dinations Color Core Cardstock!

Today I am using the Color of 2014, Radiant Orchid for my project! July is the month for weddings and who doesn't love this color! I created a Mr. and Mrs Tag Banner for the Bride and Grooms Chairs and a Table Number/Centerpiece with a bit of rustic charm. 

For the tags I used Craftwells 8x10 embossing folder and the Purple from the Brights Cardstock pack. Once I embossed and Sanded I ran it through the eBosser again with a Tim Holtz Tag Die and tied them off with this beautiful sheer and ruffled black May Arts Ribbon. Add whatever wording you would like with stickers and voila! You have a tag banner! 

The centerpiece was just as simple! I used a Large Mason Jar and cut 2 Nesting Sizes of the Spellbinders Circle Doilies Dies. One in the Grey Vintage and the other out of a piece left over from the tags in the Radiant Orchid. Adhere the 2 together and adhere to the mason jar with the appropriate Table number using the same alpha stickers from the tags. 

When planning your own wedding, or even a family members, their are so many ways to save money! DIY decor is all the rage right now and it's more simple than ever with the eBosser!! 
Thanks so much for stopping in today!! Come back each day for a new project with the eBosser and CORE'dinations!! 

Supplies Used:

Craftwell eBosser
Craftwell 8x10 Embossing Folder

Watercolor Embossed Party Banner

Watercolor Embossed Party Banner

We are back with a simple party banner created with Core'dinations Cardstock & the Teresa Collins Cut 'n' Boss by Jazmin Gibbons.

Hi there!

This banner was created for a Nautical Theme shower and it was fun to make!

Have you tried using watercolors? If not, you can totally create new effects by paining plain cardstock, letting it dry and running it through the Cut 'n' Boss!

For this banner and used watercolor paper, blue watercolor paints and simply swirled the colors onto cardstock to create the look of water stains. 

Using Core'dination Cardstock I cut out the blue backing for the banner, and cut out the detailed anchor circles above ^

I really love how clean you can cut Core'dinations paper! I glued all my papers together, die cut the letters, and glued to hang. For added sparkle, I die cut the gold anchors!

I hope you enjoyed my project!


Thanks Jazmin!

Stunning Embossed 'Thank You' Card

By : Team Craftwell
Design Team: Pam Bray Week 14 Cycle 9

Pam Bray knows good embossing. See how she embossed several pieces of Core'dinations Cardstock and turned them into a stunning 'Thank you' card!

I love making Thank You Cards...I feel we all need to remember to send thank you cards out more often, it is always nice to receive something pretty in the mail when you want to say thanks to someone. 

And the gorgeous ColorCore Nostalgia Cardstock makes it so easy to make multiples of any card especially when you are using Teresa Collins large embossing folders.

I cut my pieces from 3 different pieces of the shades of purple from the pad and did a border punch on the lightest of the paper...

 Layered them all at once onto the Damask Embossing Folder....

Running them through the eBosser at one time, how cool is that....

 And there you have it, all beautifully embossed, all at once....like I said super easy to make multiples of the thank you card.

 Layer the pieces on to your card base....

I added a pretty rose that I colored in using my Copic Markers to the center of my card, along with some stick pins, ribbon and sentiment to the front to finish my Rose Thank You Card with. 

Hugs Pammejo

Pyramid Jewelry Gift Box

By : Team Craftwell
Design Team: Liz (Unik By Yes) Week 14 Cycle 9

We are loving today's tutorial by Liz! Pyramids and geometric shapes are all in style! From jewelry to crafting, they are everywhere! See how Liz created a little gift box for one lucky recipient!

Hello Crafty Friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! Today I want to share with you a jewelry box/ ornament. I love the way our July sponsor's cardstock makes any project looks more polished effortlessly ;), gotta love that!

This box is a little bit different from others you have seen around, because I added a jewelry stand to it inside the lid. I hope you give this a try and let us know what you think.

Creative supplies:
Core'dinations Textured Brights collection
Core'dinations Solid Dyed Smooth Texture in Black Cat
Permanent glue
Paper piercing tool
Delicate Dots EF
Pyramid SVG file

Creative process:

First use any pyramid cutting file or template you might have. I used an svg file and my eCraft. I set the eCraft to 4 for the textured paper and 3 for the smooth textured cardstock. Once I cut all my pieces I ran the individual outter panels thru my eBoser using Craftwell's Delicate Dots embossing folder.

For the stand, I created a cutting file joining two triangles at the top and adding a trapezoid shape at the base. I added the earing holes using a piercing tool. Folded the trapezoid base inwards and glued it to the inner part of the box’s base. Add a ribbon tab to the box’s tab for easy opening. By adding a ribbon loop at the top of the box it becomes an ornament, love how functional this little box can be, don’t you?

As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a super crafty day!


Thanks Liz!

Woodgrain Picture Frame

By : Team Craftwell

Design Team: Jessica Kephart Week 14 Cycle 9

Summer is here and so are the summer projects! See what Jessica Kephart created for her home using Core'dinations Cardstock! 

Good Morning everyone! Jessica here from Homespun Elegance again for another fabulous project with our July Featured Sponsor, CORE'dinations Color Core Cardstock!

Today I created an adorable frame for you!! I absolutely LOVE how this turned out! What do you think!?

First, run your CORE'dinations Cardstock through the eBosser using the Teresa Collins 8x10 Woodgrain Folder. Sand it down with the CORE'dinations Sanding block to expose the cores color. I absolutely LOVE CORE'dinations paper with ANYTHING embossed! It gives the project an amazing look with just a little sanding! 

Using a tape adhesive  thoroughly cover your frame and the sides and the back of the paper. Place the Cardstock Embossed side down and center the frame and pressed it down. Using a scraper or your hands gently press to make sure there are no bubbles. 

Using an exacto knife carefully cut a 45 degree angle from the corners of the frame in. Cut out leaving enough to pull into the opening, being careful not to leave too much or the glass and photo may not fit! 

Turn it over and embellish to your hearts content! Here I used Lifestyle Craft dies for the sentiment, Unity Stamp Co Sentiment stamp, American Crafts Twine, Imagine Crafts ink, and Avery Elles dies. 

Thank so much for dropping in today! It's always a pleasure to hear from you! If you want to know the products I used for todays project here they are!

Oh, SNAP! Water Color 'Happy Birthday' Card

By : Team Craftwell
Team Craftwell Week 13 Cycle 9

We are having too much fun working with Core'dinations Cardstock! See this cute little card created by one of our Team members here at Craftwell!

Hello Everyone! 

From time to time our sponsors will send out some of their material for our office staff to try here in the Craftwell headquarters. 

Today, we created this cool little card using the NEW Teresa Collins 'Camera' embossing folder & the NEW Teresa Collins Cut 'n' Boss!

All we did was run some of Core'dinations Sandable paper on the Cut'n' Boss, and glued on top of a pre-made blank card. 

Using more of Core'dinations' paper, we cut an orange paper and embossed on the Teresa Collins Cut 'n' Boss and stamped it using some stamps from Michaels. 

We added some watercolor paint for added interest and finished off our card by wrapping some pretty twine around the card. 

To top it off, we added stickers and cut out's of Teresa Collins's New CUT 'n' Boss die collection with some glitter gold cardstock. 

We hope you liked it!

Team Craftwell
