Hello all! I’m back from Germany and just taking some time to share some pics! Dawn and I had an awesome time – it was super busy and we had loads of shows to prepare for and present!
These pictures here are from the last show we had at 10pm – we weren’t looking so bad given that we’d been up ages and were on the home straight!
I just have to say... how awesome were my ultimate samples!?! We had a huge pick of the day on the Ultimate and it absolutely flew! Everyone loved it!
I also was launching our Ulti bags and ulti boxes boards, and when I was prepping the shows, I was thinking that people always ask me for hints and tips on putting those together, so thought i’d take some pictures.
The first one I planned to demo was the little cube box, which would make an awesome favour box for a wedding or party...
I started with a sheet of the thick acetate and scored the full design – my tip here would be to use the very fine edge scoring tool and press really hard, then you get a nice crisp edge. If you find it’s difficult holding the acetate in place while you score, then you can spray the board with our Stick & Spray, but then you’ll need to use stick away to take the residue off both the board and the acetate afterwards.
Very important here – use the really strong red liner tape if you’re sticking thick acetate, as you don’t want it falling apart later! Then I just embossed a few bits on cream card to give some colour...
The finished box looks great – especially with some titbits inside for a treat! (I didn’t have any sugared almonds in my pantry funnily enough, but I did find some mini-eggs left over from easter which looked almost the same with a bit of wrapping in – not that I’d recommend eating them, but it looked lovely on my show!!)
