Craft Consortium Essential Paper Pads Launch

Hi everyone, we are all excited at Craft Consortium today to be launching another new 4 paper pads in the Essentials range which will be shown on Create and Craft this morning at 10am, but don’t worry if you miss the show as you can always get it on catch up via Create and Craft's website.

For my Design Team post I am sharing some inspiration using the fabulous Metal Textures papers and with Fathers Day fast approaching I though it would be nice to share a masculine project with them.

As you can see I have coordinated my card and Hamper box together to make a complete gift that sweeties can be placed into.

My card has strips of Metal Textures papers added with foam strips for extra dimension. My image comes from the Vintage Emporium Pad which was launched with the previous collection of Essential pads.

My rusty cogs are also cut from the Metal Textures pad and a little Gilding Wax lightly rubbed over them, mounting onto black card to give depth.

My hamper box was made using a Tonic Studios die which I cut out from a cereal packet for the base and sides and lining with my papers. You will notice I glued a few layers of cereal box to the sides to give extra support to my box so I didn’t need to use the diecut supports. My lid was just cut from the papers.

To finish my box I added metal embellishments which gives the illusion in fooling the eye that the papers are metal. My handle was made by gluing a couple of layers of cereal box together and wrapping with string, gluing in place and finishing with some screw brads on it.

Here is also a peak of the four new pads that have been launched.

 This is the Metal Textures Pad.

Here is the Grunge - Dark Tones Pad.

This is the Tropical Paradise Pad.

And finally the Grunge - Light Tones Pad.
Which one is your favourite?

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see my post, I really do appreciate it.

  1. That box is is amazing! May I enquire about the name of the Tonic Studio die used to cut it?

    1. Hi there, it’s the Hamper Box from their dimensions range x

  2. These are such a beautiful use of the Metal Textures papers. I have it on order and am planning to use some of it to re-purpose my growing collection of Moka coffee containers (they are just too nice to place in the recycle bin).
    What is the name of the Tonic Studio die that you used to cut the box? It could be used for so many different projects.

    1. That sounds a good idea. You will love the papers. It’s called theHamper Box and is in their Dimensions range.

  3. Очень реалистичная работа!
