Hi there Core Fans! It’s Joann with you and today I want to show you my twist on the classic rectangle box that is also easy to make!
For the flower, I layered pink core pastels cardstock and Vellum quotes for a unique look.
and finally here is a top down look so you can see all sides of the box.
Vintage Love Quotes Box Supplies:
- Core Essentials Neutrals Collection
- Core Essentials Pastels Collection
- Core Basics White 110lb. Cardstock Smooth
- Coredinations Love Vellum Quotes
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy
- Cuttlebug Heart Blocks Embossing Folder
- Spellbinders Standard Circles Large
- Spellbinders Carnation Creations
- Liquid Adhesive
- Bling From My Stash
- Honeybee Soap Box From The Honeybee Tea SVG Kit
- Silhouette Cameo
To make this project follow these steps.
Step 1. Start by cutting the pieces for your box out of White cardstock. For best results, I would suggest using the Core Basics 110 lb. card stock!
Step 2. Cut the base pieces out a piece from the Core Essentials Neutrals Collection.
Step 3. Distress all the edges of the White cardstock to give it a vintage look.
Step 4. Assemble the pieces as shown and allow your glue to dry.
Step 5. Finally, layer on your pieces of neutrals cardstock that has been embossed and sanded and then decorate the box as desired. Click here for a detailed video on the assembly by the creator of the cut file.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!
Mary Pat here with you today. I have an easy New Year’s Card for you today using some of my favorite Core cardstock – Chalk Core and Glitter Silk! You can’t go wrong with a combination like that!
For my card I started with the Chalk Core and embossed it using an embossing folder. I then lightly sanded it. I then found an image from the internet and traced it on my Glitter Silk and cut it out. I then used the Core Basics Vellum and embossed my sentiment using embossing powder. To finalize things I added some pearls in matching colors. Very quick and easy. You can make several of these to send to friends and family!
Happy New Year Card Supplies:
- Core’dinations Cardstock – Chalk Core, Glitter Silk, Core Basics Vellum
- Sand it Gadget
- Dust Buddy
- Paper Smooches Stamps
- Sizzix Embossing Folder
- Embossing Powder
- Doodlebug Pearls
I made this video demonstrating the techniques of embossing (both dry and heat), and sanding.

Mary Pat here with you today and I was really excited to find out that Core’dinations was teaming up with May Arts! What a great combo! I always like to bring a little hostess gift when visiting friends and family during the holidays. Just a little something to say “Thanks”. So I made a little gift bag and tag using the yummy Core’dinations and the beautiful May Arts Ribbon.

For my project I used the Tim Holtz Shattered Collection to make all my pieces and layers. This collection to me has such rich colors that just scream fall to me. I used my Silhouette to create the fall leaves and then I added some stamped images to add some fun embellishments. Finally to add the finishing touch I added the beautiful May Arts ribbon and cord.
