Crazy Crafters October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop for October. This month we are excited to show off some amazing fun folds. We hope you find great inspiration from the projects shown in the blog hop, I'm sure all our designers would appreciate a visit from you. You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Angela Westland or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup in the list below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Angela Westland.

I decided to try to do a Bendi Fold Card with matching box to present it in as it is my Mother In Law's 87th Birthday this month and wanted to do something special for her. I have been looking at these Bendi fold cards for awhile and wasn't game to try one, now I have done one I can't wait to try another in a different theme. They are great as you are setting a scene, it's like a 3D picture, this is the part I found most challenging, to create the fold is very easy. I have put the tutorial by Bibiana under the "More Than 1 Fold" tab at the top of this page for you to see the base of creating this card, then all you have to do is decorate it as desired. This is the BOX TUTORIAL I designed for my cards many years ago, I hope you find it helpful, if you follow the instructions it helps you to design any size gift box you need. Also, here is the Gift Bow Bigz L Die tutorial that I have decorated on top of my box. Also, a big thank you to Paula Knall on her tutorial how to make the curtains for the windows using your Deco Labels Framelits.
