Talkin' about a (r)evolution

(Er du på utkikk etter dagens DT post for Top Tip Tuesday se her )
Heisann, jeg har en kort post til å komme med idag også. Jeg har laget et kort til CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenges. Jeg har valgt meg ut et stempeltrykk fra "Just Inklined" som heter "Evolution",dette er altså ett av disse 5 man kan velge mellom om man første gangen kjøper seg inn for en dollar. Lager man ett eller flere kort så blir neste runde altså gratis for de som er med på konkurransene. 

(If you're looking for todays DT post for Top Tip Tuesday have a look here )
Hi there I've made a short post today too. I've made a card for the CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenges. I've chosen a stamp called "Evolution"  from "Just Inklined", it's in one of the 5 you can choose to use if you buy in for a dollar for the first round. If you make one or more cards, then the next round will be for free for those who participate.

Jeg har brukt sketsjen til Critters, som er en del av gamet om man deltar på deres blogghop, så da blir dette minst en to i en fei kort;)

I've used the sketch from Critters, which is a part of their bloghop, so this will be a two in one card at least.

----------------------------------------------------


Tutorial - Mailbox
(after inspiration from Tine's mailbox found here)

Supplies needed:

1x 30x30cm sheet of cardstock/strong paper (maybe slightly larger)
1x 30x30cm sheet of double sided DP 
Ribbon to tie up the mailbox
Crop-a-dile
Border Punch
Strong Glue/Double Sided Tape
Optional: 2 sheets of 5x20 cm to decorate the sides, brads, lace, flowers etc.

Step 1:
Cut a piece of heavy cardstock with the measurements of 20x11 cm


Step 2:
Cut the mailbox floor that will go inside the mailbox: 20x11 cm 


and glue to the piece you've already cut out. 
Now score along both long sides at approximately 1.5cm and colour the edges.

Step3:
Attach double sided tapes on each side and cut a cardstock at 28x20 cm.
You can now choose to cut the dp that you want to use on the outside of the box. Same measurements as the cardstock.

Glue those 2 pieces together. Optional: you can colour the edges of the dp if you like.


Step 4& 5:
Now make the back and front of this box.
Make ready both the cardstock and the dp.
You can either choose to go easy and print ready measurements
found here and make it, or glue the sides of the cardstock on first and
draw around to get exact measurements. Remember you have to add
flips to the backside to attach to the inside of the mailbox.




Step 6
Glue the box together. For the backside take the long end first and attach the flips/tabs.
I've added the optional side decoration here.


Step 7
Make ready the handle to go outside. Use the precuts or draw your own and add dp's of preferance to the outside.

Attach to the mailbox either with a brad, for movement or glue it at the bottom tip and decorate!!
 


. I've had loads of fun making this mailbox it was quite easy to make to. Hope you'll try to make one at home;)
I'll add my recipe later on;)
Now I hope I've inspired you to take a look into our challenge blog to see what my very talented teammates have made for this challenge!
