Altered Book Style box+ Accordion mini Journal

Hello My Crafty Friends.........

It's me Arpita again on the blog today.Today I am sharing a cute little project,actually there is 2 projects in 1 today.A altered book style box and a accordion style mini journal/album,yes tried making a little accordion style mini journal book/album.Album making is very new to me and its my first,enjoyed making it.

Will share a written tutorial with you at the end of the pictures.Hope you enjoy the projects.....

Tutorial for the altered box

1.First started with the binding part,wanted to give it a faux leather look..for that i first tore a tissue into small bits and started to adhere them randomly on to the surface,did two layers of the same process as only one layer had not given as much texture I wanted.

2.To paint this I tried to take the colors complementing the color of the paper i was using.i choose sap green,yellow ochre,pink and brown.I diluted these paints with water and started applying them each color at a time and letting them dry between each coat.painted till i was satisfied with the color.

3.Wanted the side to look like pages,so i painted the base with brown once dried added a thick coat of gesso and as it was still wet took a comb to draw lines through it.

4.Now stuck the pattern paper,embelished them and I was done with the book box.And yes don't forget to varnish the inside of the box once u have painted it.

Tutorial for Accordin style mini journal/album

Before starting with the steps I want to say I have not used any score board or trimmers .all papers are cut by scissors,a normal blade.So if you are thinking you need to have all the tools to do this,no u don't.

1.As I wanted this to fit in my book box,took measurements suiting the box.
2.The album measures 4'' * 3''. Fistly i cut a white cardstock 9'' * 4'' strip,cut 3 strips with the same measurement.
3.At every 3'' made a fold for all the 3 strips and stuck them together.the last fold of the first strip overlaps the 1st fold of the 2nd strip.
4.Cut the pattern papers a quater inch smaller and stuck them on the raw album base.Also added some corner inserts and pockets.
5.Added a long piece of lace trim on the top which acts as a closure and i wa done.

Materials used :
 MDF Book Style Box , Pattern Paper .Chipboard Embellishment used inside of the box all from The Element Craft Studio

Star Easel card and Floral card Tutorial

Helllooo crafty people..!

This is Shilpi here today on TECS blog.. And today I'll share tutorial of two cute cards.. U can make these very quickly.. so I hope u guys enjoy the tutorial as much as I enjoyed making it.. so let's start with the first one.

1)Star Easel card

Cut down a card stock measuring 20.5cm x13cm. Fold it into a half with d help of a bone folder.. cut down a pattern paper of your choice with the same measurement, I have used a paper from the paper pack Love is everywhere from "The Junk Drawer" .

Now trim down 1/8th inch from all d sides of pattern paper. Cut both the base card stock n pattern paper diagonally n paste pattern paper to the base card stock as shown in the picture.. now we have three triangles 2 small n one big.. 

we have already scored the bigger triangle from d middle that gives us a triangle shaped card.. make a slit on d diagonal side of the card as shown in the picture.. on the other hand paste both the small triangles as shown in the pic.. after pasting the small triangles u can decorate it d way u want..

I have added a parachute n love is everywhere tag from the same paper pack n a few flowers.. Now your bigger triangle will act like a base n insert the smaller triangles in d slit as show in the picture.. after inserting it u get a star easel card.. attaching the pics of the procedure..

2) Floral card

This one is super easy n quick.. Take s card stock measuring 26cm x 13 cm now fold it into a half with the help of a bone folder.. cut down a pattern paper measuring 13cm x 11cm n trim 1/8 of an inch from all the sides.. I have again used a paper from "Love is everywhere pack" Distress the side of both the card stock n pattern paper.

Then I trimmed down two burlap strips as per the size of the card n distressed it n pasted it as shown in the pic.. I have taken a chippies from the TECS gessoed it n distressed it.. roughly tear down any quote of your Choice n distress its edges.. I have used  a quote from the paper pack " bohemian dreams" from the Junk drawer.. Then I have added a small bow n punch craft flowers n sequences to the chippies.. Taddda it's done!!

Hope u enjoyed the tutorial
