Surfboard Frame & Ocean Fun Box

By Magda Cortez


“Happy Sun Kissed Day! Yes! I’m so happy today because the cold days are gone once you start working with these beautiful papers! Sun Kissed Paper Collection is sooooo Beautiful! I’m sure you will love it!


This time I’m going to show you my two projects I did for Creativation… One little 3D box and the surfboard who is a little Photo Frame…


For the tiny box I use the ATC BOX in black.. It saves you a lot of time if you don’t want to make your own box from scratch it is a great idea!


I love fussy cutting and those little turtles are so cute.. To give dimension I use one of those tools to curve the paper also for the flowers in the front.. Mmm I can’t remember the name .. but you can use a ball pen without ink 😛 and a soft mat to curve the paper.


For the Photo Frame I draw hand free a surfboard it was so easy then I cut it in chipboard it measures 8” x 4” approximately.


I love love the result.. I very colorful and dimensional photo frame! I hope you like this collection is so beautiful and it’s just ready for our sunny summer vacations!

Sun Kissed Tag Album

Tip:   Take advantage of the back of each tag to create a place for photos by cutting and attaching patterned paper photo mats. I like to add thicker embellishments such has the ribbons and flowers to the front of the tag page and then keep the back flat for photos by adding just a fussy cut element.
