Nesting Boxes - Three Boxes, Three Sizes Featuring Fairie Dust

Posted by Graphic 45 01/25/2018 47 Comment(s) Mini Albums,Videos,

Hello, G45ers!

 Einat Kessler is here today and has found the perfect fit for our Fairie Dust collection with her inspired Nesting Boxes. Each box fits neatly inside the next and comes decorated with all the fussy cut, fairie imagery you would expect from a Graphic 45 project. Check out the images below for full details. 


Matryoshka Boxes
By Einat Kessler


Hi dear crafty friends!

Einat here with a new project to inspire you.

Do you know what Matryoshka dolls are? These are similar to those dolls that are nested one inside the other. I decided to create Matryoshka boxes. The idea is three boxes in different sizes that fit one inside of the other.



I created this project with the beautiful and magical fairy Dust collection. I used both the 12x12 and 8x8 paper sizes as well as the sticker page. This project is so fun! You can keep the boxes tucked in together or display them apart.




Tip #1: When creating a box that has cards, a mini album, or any other project in it, don’t embellish the project with bulky elements so your box will be able to close easily.




Tip #2: Graphic 45 papers are thick enough to stand on their own so you can create boxes and other 3D projects from the papers without using chipboards.


Have fun creating!”

Yes I know Matryoshka dolls. My mom has a set. Does somebody have a tip for a good pair of scissors to use for fussy cutting. I don't like fussy cutting but maybe that's because of my scissors? Thank you :)

01/25/2018, 12:17:33 PM

Definitely the best scissors for fussy cutting are Fiskars Micro Tip Soft Grip 5” scissors. They are super sharp all the way to the point and are perfect for cutting small details.
