Box Card Tutorial By DT Nikkita Jain

Hello crafty peeps,

Nikkita Here, I am back again with another tutorial and it's a shadow box card.
So here is the project with step by step instructions and pictures.

  • First, take a cardstock of 300 gsm and cut into respective sizes (11"x 6.5" and 6.5" x 8"). 
  • Score the 11" x 6.5" piece at 5" and 6"
  • Score the 6.5" x 8" piece at 1/2" and 1.25". Flip and score the same way on all four sides and sniff off the corners as shown in the picture

  • Create the shadow box using tacky tape or any strong adhesive and keep it aside.

  • To make the base strong add layers of cardstock on both sides measuring 6.25* 4.75 on both sides
  • Add ribbon as shown for the box closure

  • Stick to the shadow box.
  • Decorate the box as per your choice , I have made the box as a baby shower gift for a mom to be and used papericious mom to be collection, I have fussy cut the elements and made embellishments, to give a 3D look to the embellishments I have added double sided foam tape at back of the elements. Complete the box as shown in the picture and the pretty gift box is ready.

  • Note - always take the pattern paper little smaller than the base for example if the box cover is 5*6.5 inches then pattern paper should be 4.75 * 6.25.

Hope you all are doing good.

This is Nikkita Today. Crafters, what do you do to preserve your memories, like we often click photographs, get them framed or make an album. How about making your on scrapbook album to give a handmade touch to your beautiful memories. Today I'm going to inspire you with a Vintage Mini album, so that all you can try easily and gift to your loved ones or preserve memories of your life.
Here we go


Step 1 - Take 2 pieces of chipboard measuring 6 by 6 inches for the base and for the spine take 2.5 by 6 inches. Cover it like book using cardstock and tacky tape.

Step 2 - For the closure take two ribbons and stick them in the middle and cover the whole chipboard using cardstock.

Step 3 - For the pages I used hidden hinge binding system and I have left a gap of 1/2'' between every hinge.

Made 6 pages total,

Page size measures 5.75 by 5.75''

Made 6 pockets measuring 5.5 by 5.5''.

Step 4 - Cut pattern paper as per your choice and distress it with distress ink vintage photo to give a complete look.

I use tacky tape/tacky glue for sticking my pattern paper.

Step 5 - To Decorate Cover, i simply used a Leather paper which is locally available in my near stationery store, I adhered MDF Cut Out, Die cuts, Mulberry Flowers and Resin Charm to give an Vintage look. 

Step 6: Decorate the inside pages as per your choice.  

Tip: When you'll adhere MDF cutout, let it sit for few time to get it adhere with base strongly. I've used Aleene's Tacky Glue

  3. Placed metal butterfly next to the tree.

  4. Once the entire placement is done, gave the entire tray few coats of black gesso.

  5. Later I dry brushed art alchemy antique brilliance wax – amethyst randomly on the entire frame. After that I dry brushed blue and green paste from finnabair patina effect paste randomly on the entire frame and finish off with few strokes of brass paste from finnabair patina effect paste.
