About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.

My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥


~~Little Boxes Made of Ticky Tacky ~~

Posted by Ania On Friday, December 10, 2010

Right. 18 boxes. Sharing some more today (gotta spread out the love, or something like that). When speed-creating 18 boxes it’s inevitable that most will be pretty plain-looking and/or simple (or maybe it’s because I’m a fairly laidback and lazy scrapper). All the boxes here are created with various papers from 3ndypapir by the way, and letters from Prima or Fancy Pants :)


I know mom will love the angels and snowmen. She better, as I do myself and this was my last sheet of this paper! ;p


I love this “God Jul” (Merry Christmas in Norwegian) strip of paper Smile


The flower’s from Petaloo by the way.


Hope you like the boxes, ‘cause I’ll be back with more on Sunday Smile with tongue out

How cool is that! Love'em, absolutely love them. Any particular template you're using for the boxes? Do please share the details.

Thank you so much Smile Hm not really, I just scored 12x12 cardstocks approx 1 5/8 inch  and slightly larger (4,5 og 4,7 cm) in sort of – it took me three attempts before I found the “right” size for me and my gifts (so two of the 18 boxes are slightly smaller than the rest Smile with tongue out).


Load the scoring-knife on your trimmer. Place a cardstock on it and score all the sides on the red dot – first lid one then lid two (which needs to be slightly different in size so the lids will fit into each others).


I’m so bad at explaining stuff in an easy way :/


Nevertheless. They’re just very simple boxes. Make such cuts and adhere the flaps together so it’ll become a lid. Or something like that.
