Hi Core Fans! It’s Joann and I am happy to be here with you today to show you a cool gift box you can create using your Core Cardstock and fabulous Core Pattern paper. This is a fun little gift that you can create for that beverage lover in your life 🙂 I made this for my son’s 24th Birthday and included some gift cards inside.
and as a bonus the top open up to double as a box!
3D Beer Mug Supplies:
- Core Essentials Neutrals
- Core Essentials Darks
- Core Polka Dot Pops White Pearl with White Polka Dpt Pops GX-2300-121
- Core Basics – Patterns Brown Plaid GX-2300-70
- Core Basics – Patterns Brown Houndstooth GX-2300-72
- Spellbinders Birthday Cake
- Spellbinders Deckled Edge Ovals Lg
- Beer Mug from the SVG Cuts Feeling Lucky Collection
- Silhouette Cameo
To make this project follow these steps.
Start by cutting the pieces for your Beer Mug out of Core Essentials Neutrals and the decorative panels out of Core Basics – Patterns Brown Plaid and Core Basics – Patterns Brown Houndstooth. Finally the White foam is cut from Core Polka Dot Pops White Pearl with White Polka Dpt Pops.
Tip: When making 3D projects I find it best to use a heavy weight cardstock. Core Essentials Cardstock, both the single sheets as well as the packaged booklets, are absolutely perfect in weight. They not only stand up well but also allow you to have a nicely defined scor line. You want that nice sharp edge to show off your beautiful work!!
Scor on the scor lines and fold all of the pieces making sure to use your bone folder for a nice sharp line. Once you have all your scor lines done it will be easier to attach the decorative panels first and then assemble the mug.
Finish by assembling the top of the mug and add a sentiment. For this project I used the Spellbinders Birthday Cake die. For detailed assembly of the Beer mug, the creator of the cut file has a good tutorial here so be sure to check it out.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!
