I hope you are falling in love with all of the new products in the 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Brations Catalogs. I definitely have. (If you do not have the catalogs yet, and do not have a demonstrator, please contact me and I will get catalogs in the mail to you!) Today I am sharing one of the really unexpected favorites from the Occasions Catalog. It is the framelits “Lots To Love” which bundles with the “Sure Do Love You” stamp set.
I love stamp sets that are quick and easy. Framelits add a great touch to our cards by adding dimension and showcasing the stamped image. I believe this box does the same thing. It is probably the easiest to build of any “put it together” item SU has ever had. All you do is cut two of the box shape and adhere them together one with the flap at the top and the other with the flap at the bottom. Since it is equal to adhere the sides is to simply lay it flat and fold over. Easy Peasy!!
I decided to use another popular Sale-A-Bration set to dress up my little gift box. It is the “Lots of Lavender” stamp set. I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends. I then added a few touches of the Chalk Pen to highlight a couple of the flowers.
For the finishing touch, I added the Night of Navy Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. I also used the 1/2″ Circle Punch to make a little tab at the top. This just makes it a little easier to get the box open. You would not want to tear the DSP trying to get the box open!
To finish off the box, and I should mention to do this as you are putting the box together!!!! I added a Night of Navy circle to the inside of the flap. It is the 2nd largest circle in the Layering Circles Framelits. And it merely gives a little more finished look to the inside flap , as well as making it a little sturdier.
In case you were wondering this box is pretty big. It will hold full size candy bars like a Hershey or a Kit Kat. And I know it could be adjusted to make it “thicker” so that it would hold the test tubes SU had in the Holiday Catalog.
Thank you for visiting with me today! I hope you enjoyed this project. It really is a very versatile box that is super easy to build. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. And if you do not currently have a demonstrator I would love to help you.
