Finally, the video I promised you months ago (of course that could apply to a lot of tutorials LOL!)

Hi friends! A couple of months ago I shared a faux mosaic gift box tutorial and I asked you if you wanted to see how I made the cards that went with it. Well, I just got around to editing that video!


Actually, I wanted to save it because I thought it would come in a bit more handy when you were getting ready to start making handmade holiday gifts. I like this as a gift because it is beautiful and useful and it might even inspire someone to take up a new hobby: cardmaking! Feel free to change-up the look by using the stamps and ink color you prefer!


Papermart supplies used in the card set:
Jewelry Tissue on a roll
Bulk envelopes
Baker’s Twine
Kraft Jewelry Box 5″x6″

Mosaic Box Tutorial:

Other Supplies:
Cardstock: White and Kraft
Stamps and Ink: Altenew, Envelope stamp Stampin’ Up!

DIY Stamp positioner: My friend Jody made me a stamp positioner tool that is perfect for layering up stamps. Here is what you will need to make it:
slim jewel dvd case (hub-less or with the hub removed)
craft foam
clear grid by little B (if you want it to be sticky and hold your paper in place or you can use grid paper)

Directions for DIY hinged stamp positioner:
1. Cut fun foam to fit jewel case.
2. Adhere grid to foam.
3. Stamp! You may not need the foam if using cling rubber stamps because they are thicker, you will need the foam for clear stamps though. Add more foam if needed!
All the supplies used in the stamp positioner can be found here.

If you missed the tutorial on the Mosaic Box you can see the full tutorial here.

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Nice gift for someone – especially those who are hard to buy for.


  2. I HAVE to make that stamping positioner! I still don’t have the technique down and that seems like the perfect tool. I also liked the use of the intricate die cut. I bought several, but haven’t used them yet because I wasn’t sure how to design a card with them. Love the layered look, and the finished product. Thank you for such great ideas! Perfect for this rainy Tennessee day!

  5. I found another DIY stamp positioner in my crop pile. The Sizzix Cutting Plate plastic case works great!! Here is a picture of how it is working:
    Thanks for the great idea! ….Again 🙂 “Frugal is the way”


  6. It’s a very smart idea to show this video closer to the holidays.


  7. Beautiful!
