Graphic 45 2018 Brand Ambassador Audition

Hi there,

     I am sharing few projects made with Graphic 45 as part of audition to their call for Brand Ambassadors. Whew!!! Who wouldn't want to be part of their team??? It would be a dream come true !!
I totally love G45 papers and staples, may be I should say crazy about them. I drool over their papers and can spend time just flipping through them, the projects on Pinterest or those made by their brand ambassadors.
Let me introduce myself -
I am Gayatri from India, mother of two wonderful boys. I am a stay at home Mom and started paper crafting 4 years back. Once kids grow up and leave for further studies you are left alone with so much time at disposal. That's when I started crafting. My craze for G45 started  a year back, when I started collecting few paper packs. I love their colors and patterns and the possibility of fussy cutting!! OMG I love that since it is also stress buster.

Let me jump into my first project:

This is an upcycle project using empty tape rolls. I made a circular gift box.

I took two empty rolls for my project.

I took a strip of normal printer paper measuring 2 cm wide, and placed it around the roll to find out the length of paper required.

 I drew a line around the outer edge to mark the lid and cut it across using a cutter. I used another empty roll for the base.

I sanded the edges to remove frayed edges and smoothen them

Traced the outer edge of the base and also the lid on a chipboard piece and cut them out.

I sanded the edges of chipboard and stuck it to the lid and the base.
Decorated with paper and embellishments and Voila!! a beautiful gift box is ready!

Remove the paper and sand the inner side of the lid so that it fits easily to the base while closing.

I used 'Vintage Hollywood' 8 x 8 paper pack. Here are few better pictures.

The next project is a mini scrapbook album measuring 7.5 x 5.5. I love making scrapbook albums. I have used the 'Fairie Dust' paper pack, ephemera cards and chipboard embellishments for this project. I have used few papers of 'Midnight Masquerade' as I ran out of papers and I didn't want to waste my tag sheet (grin...). I am sharing few pictures and video of flip through the album.

Here is a video of the flip through of the album.

You can watch it Youtube here

Hope you liked both my projects. 

I made a few desk organizers with G45 papersand check it out here, also a baby girl album
