More Craft Project Central!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas! Later this week I will share with you the projects from the December Make and Take and the gifts that I made for Christmas! For now here are the last four projects for the December Subscription to Craft Project Central! One of them is a free tutorial for everyone!

Select a Sentiment Box of Cards

Are you in need of some last minute (quick and easy) gifts for your crafty friends, downline, neighbors, co-workers, teachers, etc.? Here is a great project that shows you how to take an inexpensive index card box and turn it into a gift of note cards and envelopes. Includes a selection of sentiments that can be adhered to the note cards later as needed. This project is also a fun club or class project!


This project was designed by Regina Andari!



Lattice Box & Note Cards
Free Tutorial!!! Merry Christmas from Craft Project Central!

At this joyous time of year, we wanted to express our gratitude to you for joining us here on Craft Project Central!. Here is a little gift for you on this special day!

Mini Circle Box & Card

Before you know it, it will be 2012 and you’ll be thinking of cute things to make your Valentines! Your Valentine will feel extra special when you dress up fancy candy in these cute mini circle boxes and pair them with the coordinating card. The boxes are so quick and easy to make and every piece of candy is its own little gift! The Ferrero Rocher candy is a great choice for Valentine’s Day, but if you want something for your younger Valentines, try stacking mini peanut butter cups in the boxes! This project is also a great club or class project.

This project was designed by Julie Edmonds!



Sweet Pressed Cookie Box & Card

Your Valentine will know they are loved when you give them this pretty window box filled with cookies along with the matching card!  This project is versatile enough to use for any holiday or occasion – just change the colors and stamps that you use!

Fancy Favor Christmas Luminaries

This is actually a project that I made for a Make and Take last year, but never got around to posting. It's amazing what you'll find when you start cleaning up your photo folders!


Stamps: Simple Snowflake, Jolliest Time of the Year
Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle punch, 1-3/4" Circle punch, Northern Flurries Die, Fancy Favor die, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Gold Brad, Vellum card stock, battery operated tea light, Two-Way Glue Pen, Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive


The other side is stamped with a snowman.

This was super easy to make. Just cut out the Cherry Cobbler card stock large enough to fit on the Fancy Favor die. Run the card stock through the Big Shot with the die to cut out the box. Stamp the card stock with the Simple Snowflake image in Basic Black ink to give it a background pattern. Use the 1-3/4" Circle punch to punch a hole in both of the large side panels of the box.

For the Old Olive frame punch a 1-3/4" Circle from Old Olive card stock. Then line up the 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle punch so that the 1-3/4" circle hole is in the center, then punch. This will create your frame. You will need two of these. Adhere the frame onto the outside of the box with Two-Way Glue Pen. Next stamp the tree and snowman image onto a piece of Vellum card stock. Punch out the tree and the snowman with the 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle punch. Adhere these onto the inside of the box with Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive.

Next run a piece of card stock through the Big Shot on the Northern Flurries die. Pick out two snowflakes and pierce a hole through the center of each snowflake with the Paper Piercer and Mat Pack. Then use the Paper Piercer and Mat Pack to pierce a hole in the side of your box next to the "window frame" where you want your snowflakes. Use a gold brad to attach the two snowflakes onto the box.

Fold on all of the score lines, add sticky strip to the side flap and one of the bottom flaps. Form the box by adhere the sides together first, then closing up the bottom.


This creates a cute little lumiary to decorate for the holiday season and they are quick and easy to whip up for a last minute gift!

Winter Lake

Since I did two groups of projects for the 12 Days of Christmas Swap I wanted to give two different pictures for the 12th gift. Yesterday I posted the first one which you can find HERE. Here is the second picture from day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas swap. This one is a cold winter lake.

11. Remove the Post-It notes from the bottom and re-position them to cover the top portion of the card stock. Cut the sticky part of two Post-It notes with Paper Snips in a curvy line. Place these over the bottom of the card stock. This will be the snowy bank of the lake.

18. Take one of the curvy Post-It notes and position it in the remaining white portion of the card stock.

19. Sponge Bashful Blue ink just at the Post-It note edge to create a snow mound.


20. Remove the mask, re-position it, and sponge another snow mound. Repeat until you have the desired look.

Allow the adhesive to dry completely. Insert the card stock into the picture frame.

Tie a bow with 5/8" Bashful Blue Satin ribbon. Adhere to the frame with Mini Glue Dots. Cut one snowflake from Bashful Blue card stock and one from Whisper White card stock using the Northern Flurries Die in the Big Shot. Spray the snowflakes with shimmer mist. Use the Paper Piercer and Mat Pack to pierce a hole in the center of the snowflakes. Insert a silver Glimmer Brad into the hole. Adhere the snowflakes onto the bow with Mini Glue Dots.
