Faux Feathers

There are Make & Take projects every year at convention. We receive the required stamp sets and the materials to do them but I never spend the time to make them. There is so much to do and see and never enough time so I make them when I get home. I liked this treat box project so much. Loved everything about it. The color combination, the faux feathers, the stamps. There is a bit of glare on the box top because it is acetate. These cute boxes are the Tag a Bag Gift Boxes that are not only food safe but perfect for any kind of gift. Two of the small jar candles fit inside. You get 8 Kraft boxes with acetate sleeves for just $6.95.  Each year I make something to take to the neighbors during the Christmas holidays. I plan on using these boxes this year with a special yummy treat inside.


In fact I liked it so much that I decided to design a card based on this project. See directions below for creating the liner and the faux feathers.

feather card

Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Hello Lovely, Banner Greetings

Ink: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral

Paper: Bermuda Bay, White, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe DSP

Misc: Tag a Bag Gift Box, Candy Dots, Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon, 2-1/2″ Circle Punch, 1-3/4″ Circle Punch, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals

Box Top Liner:

  • Cut cardstock 4-3/8″ x 6-7/8″.
  • Score at 1″ and 3-3/8″ (the cardstock will be scored at 1″ on each long side)
  • Use Mini Glue Dots to adhere the liner to to acetate sleeve by putting them on the underneath side where the ribbon and feathers will be attached to the top of the acetate sleeve. This way they won’t be seen. Once you have the glue dots in place just insert the liner and press to the glue dots.

Faux Feathers:

  • Punch one circle from the Calypso Coral Cardstock and the Crisp Cantaloupe Designer Series Paper using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch
  • Punch one circle from the Coastal Cabana Cardstock using the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch
  • To create feather shapes, insert circles back into the punch and punch feather shape as shown below.
  • Fold feather shape in half.
  • Snip through both layers, then rough the edges to add dimension.
