Homemade gift boxes!

I am so excited to share with you these gift boxes that I learned to make using my MS Score board! I love them and cannot make enough. I timed myself and it took 7 min's to make one minus decorating it of course and full speed ahead, lol.


I just bought a new video camera and I can wait to get a tripod for it because all I can think lately is I WANT TO MAKE VIDEO TUTORIALS!!!!!   I am hoping to start in January when everything slows down. I will have to do a little researching of the do's and don't's, the right way to upload and fun stuff like that first.
Can anyone tell me the best program to use to edit my videos?  I would really appreciate any help I can get.


OK!!! Here are the boxes! Down below I also added  a few more cards that I made... and one page mini albums that I am sending as gifts!


It's beginning to look a lot like christmas!!! (singing)

I really love this one, it was my first one, it is large enough for a 6" by 6" card

This one is my favorite, I used Tim Holtz musical Tissue tape to give it that extra umph.

I wanted to try something different so I  used my MS (Martha Stewart) edge punch just around the lid so that the base can be seen. 
I did this one large enough for my 51/2" by 51/2 " card, a few homemade chocolates and a hanging cross for my Aunt  for Christmas.... I don't think she reads my blogs, I hope not!!! lol
I made these Rossettes on my MS Score Board too! Aren't they georgeous!!!!

A close up view , I also used stickles by Ranger

I used my Sizzix to emboss the background, the next picture shows more detail.


This is my favorite card, it makes me happy , hehe




Ok!! Now unto the Mini Books!

They are all made using one piece of 12 by 12 paper!, the last one is Tim Holtz paper , on one sheet there are 4 blocks which works magic because each page has a different pattern... Notice that they also have pockets which would be great to carry school pictures of your children or grandchildren, or even a place to put your money cards you collect over christmas!






I hope you enjoyed my projects!
Remember, any tips on video taping I can get would be greatly appreciated.
Happy Blogging! :)
