Wedding Favor Gift Box Video - The Robin's Nest

Hello Girls,
Friendship Wraps are cute chipboard containers exclusive to The Robin's Nest. They are perfect as wedding favors or to hold any small gift. They come flat in solid colors for you to decorate, personalize in your own style, and assemble. I chose an aqua box to embellish as a wedding favor or bridal party gift. The thick chipboard is sturdy and easy to decorate and the containers are simple to assemble.
You can find the step by step video to make this favor box HERE.

I think once you decorate one, you will be eager to try all the different styles. Friendship Wraps are perfect to have in your stash for that last minute thank you gift that you can customize for the recipient. Even when all you have time to do is buy a gift card, the packaging can still be fabulous!

Metallic Steampunk Bird & Clocks - Sin City Design Team

Hello Stamping Friends,
Today I brought a card done totally in metallic gold-silver-copper and black. It is without my typical palette of happy colors. I was so excited to find the set with a Steampunk Bird because I was waiting to try this grunge style. The bird is made of a collection of gears and so I knew it would look fantastic combined with clocks.   My card is super industrial and very masculine which is not my usual style but I really like how it came out.  Let me show you how I did it.
The complete instructions can be found HERE.  

Sneak Peek Time!!!

Supplies:
gold card base 5x7"
silver paper foil
gear embossing folder
die cutting machine
alcohol inks - rust, yellow, brown, grey
