Using Scratch Magic Card in Your Embossing folders

Hi there
Saw Leonie demoing this on Create & Craft with the E-Bosser and thought mmmmmmm good idea as I have a few of these sheets in my cupboard.

Cut a piece of the scratch magic card the size of your embossing folder

Insert in your folder and run through your embossing machine
 Get your sandpaper block and gently rub off the black and depending what colour or colours your card is you get a lovely embossed pattern with a black background. I used holographic on this one.
 The one below is Translucent, its like acetate, shiny on one side and painted dull black on the other side. Do the same as above but gently sandpaper the dull side and this is what I got. This is the dull side
 and this is the shiny side. So when you have sandpapered the dull side turn it over and you have the colours showing through on the shiny side as well.

Tutorial for Debbi Moore Vintage Roses Bags & Boxes CD Jewellery Box

Hi there
I was asked for help on putting together the Jewellery Box on Debbi Moore`s Vintage Roses Bags & Boxes cd so I thought I would make a tutorial for it. As this is the 1st tutorial I have done bear with and I hope you can follow it ok.
So here goes:
 Choose which colour you want to make the box in then print 2 of the top and bottom templates on page 1 of the pdf. Cut out and place to one side.

 Next, print 4 sheets of page 2 which is the drawers, cut out and score on the dotted lines.
  Glue the tabs in place to form the boxes as below. Make a hole in one long side of the drawer to either put a brad through or a piece of ribbon to make the drawer pull.
 Next, print of 3 sheets of page 3, you only need 3 sheets as there is enough on each sheet to make 1 and a half wraps. Cut out and score on dotted lines then glue 2 strips together to make 1 long strip then glue the small tabs to form a rectangle like in the photo below. This is a formed wrap. Do the above for 3 more wraps.
 Once you have made the wraps you can slide the drawers into the wraps as per photo below.
 Place 1 of the templates on your work surface printed side up and position the wraps as shown below, you will find it better to have the drawers inside the wraps when doing this. When you have them centred on the template glue the bottom of the wrap and place in position.
 When the above is dry place the 2nd template print side down on your work surface and glue the top of the wraps and centre the drawers and bottom template on the top template. When that is dry turn over and it will look like the photo below but with the drawers in the wraps. Mine hasn't the drawers in the wraps as I haven't yet glued mine in position. Then go ahead and decorate to your hearts content.
Any questions PM me at https://www.facebook.com/jeanette.jackson.735

When I have glued all mine together and decorated it I will add the photo to the bottom of this tutorial.

Have now added a photo of the finished product below.
