Stampin’ Up! Mini Shipping Box

I skipped the Royal Challenge yesterday due to the Pals Blog Hop.  If you did not go through the Hop, I hope you will do so.  There are some great projects.  Today the Royal Challenge is “Not A Card”.  I love 3D projects, but am not good and creating my own.  For the one today I cheated a bit.  Not Really!!  I created a table centerpiece using the new, and super cute, Mini Shipping Boxes that are in the catalog.  I hope you will like it.

 

 

I got the idea from the Pop Up Box cards.  I created this using the same idea of the cross pieces as used on the pop up box card,  and then adhering my flowers to those.  It isn’t super good from top view, but you can see the method I used.

 

 

I did not add filler to the bottom of the box so that you could see my construction.  If this were my table decoration, I would put some green tissue paper in the bottom to help blend the cross pieces that hold the flowers.

I used both of the Daisy punches and punched in Daffodil Delight and the Perennial Essence Vellum.  The stems and leaves are punched using dies from the Bouquet Bunch Dies.  The tag is from that die set as well.  The sentiment on the tag is from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  All of my adhering besides the green strips in the box are done with glue dots.  Glue Dots are my heroes!!

MEASUREMENTS:

For the cross pieces inside the box, the box is 4″ wide.  I cut three strips 5 X 3/4 and scored each end at 1/2″.  I then folded on the score lines and used Tear & Tape to adhere those to the box inside.  Then all of the flowers stems are adhered to those pieces with glue dots.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you liked seeing something a bit different today.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.

Envelope Punch Board Box

One of the tools that is retiring soon is the much loved Envelope Punch Board.  I must say that I cannot remember the last time I used it for an envelope vs making a box or treat holder.  So that said, I will miss this versatile tool.  To say goodbye I have made another little box with it.

I do not know who created this version.  I had it on my desk for some time.  I’m sure my friend and fellow demonstrator Julie DiMatteo has a version.  I will have the simple directions listed below.

So here is the cute little box.  It just happens to hold a Ghirardelli Chocolate!

 

Envelope Punch Board, 133774

 

This paper is the Garden Impressions 6X6 Designer Series Paper Stack.  It is perfect anytime but especially for spring.  And depending on the size of the box you are making it may be a perfect size.  I used a 4 1/4 X 4 1/4 piece, plus used one of the cutoff pieces for the bellyband.

Here is the inside view:

 

These are very quick to make.  The most time is just deciding on which beautiful paper you want to use!  I have the measurements and simple directions below.

I am giving you a sneak peek of a new stamp set as well. It is the Celebrate With Cake.  It will be available in the upcoming annual catalog.  It is one of the several that Stampin’ Up! has designed for a stamper with the #simplestamping in mind.  I LOVE it!!!

 

Directions:

  • 4 1/4 X 4 1/4 card stock or DSP
  • Start at the 1 3/4 mark on the Envelope Punch Board, punch and score
  • Slide down to the 2 1/4 mark, punch and score.
  • Now just rotate to all sides and punch and score by lining up the score lines
  • Fold and burnish on all the score lines
  • Cut away the four small corner squares
  • Decide which is the top.
  • Round the edges of the top and bottom sections using the Envelope Punch Board Corner Rounder feature.
  • Lay your piece of chocolate inside and dry fit the sides and bottom sections.
  • Add glue or adhesive of choice to the two side pieces where the bottom piece will cover it.
  • Cut a 5 1/4 X 3/4 strip for the bellyband
  • Dry fit the bellyband by using your fingers to crease it as you fold it around.
  • Adhere the two ends together and cover the seam with your decoration

OnStage Treat Box Take2

I would forget my brain if it wasn’t attached!  I forgot to take a photo of my treat box that I used as table favors and give aways at OnStage last week.  I used the directions from my fellow Demonstrator and 3D Queen Julie DiMatteo to make them.  They are so quick to do that I needed some for another occasions and will share that one with you today.  I have a link to Julie’s post and video.  The only difference is that I shortened the flap and tucked it inside as opposed to the longer flap and magnet closure that Julie used.  They are both after the pictures.

 

A Good Day 145873

 

I don’t know if you can see the little finger groove to help in opening.

 

 

This is a better shot of the finger groove and the tucked in flap.

 

 

And here is the good stuff on the inside!  The ones from OnStage held a Snack size Hershey bar, but I used all of those.  So these each had two Ghirardelli Minis.

Here is the post from Julie on the treat holder.  Click HERE .  The only difference is that the size is 4 X 4 1/2 for mine instead of her 4 X 5.  Do all the measurements just as Julie does.  The right side of the 4 1/2 will have two score marks 1/2 apart and not a longer as hers does.  I simply rounded that end and used the 1/2″ circle punch to make a finger groove.  Both are super easy to make.

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you enjoyed the little box.  please come back tomorrow for the monthly InKing Royalty Blog Hop!  You will see several really nice projects.  And as always, my supply list is at the bottom of  the post.

Reminder:  I have used this sweet stamp set, A Good Day, twice this week.  It is a favorite Go To set for little tags.  It is on the retiring list.  So don’t let it get away from you!

Saint Patrick’s Day Treat

I know Saint Patrick’s Day was yesterday!   I could not show this little treat ahead of time because it was a treat for my Stamp Club ladies and we meet on Sunday.   Even though it isn’t much , I wanted them to see it in person first.

This is a super quick and easy treat holder and could easily be made to match any occasion.

Itty Bitty Greetings, 146667

 

It really needed green wrapped candy, but I like using the DSP to cover regular candy that you may already have on hand.  I swiped these from my husband’s candy stash!  Ssshhhh!!!

The designer series paper is the Happiness Blooms and the green enamel dot is also from the Happiness Blooms Suite of products.  The Scallop Tag Topper Punch, the Scallop Circle punch, and the circle punches are all my “Go To” punches for adding just a bit of extra to a card.  I would not know what to do without these workhorse punches.  I highly recommend having them in your supplies.

The holder itself is 1 1/2 X 6.  I punched each end with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  I then scored at   3 5/8,  4, , 5 1/8.  Using the Bone Folder, I burnished each fold.  Then I folded the 5 1/8 score in the opposite direction and burnished again.  I placed the DSP piece on the front of the short section, and wrapped the candy bar with the same DSP.  The front piece measures 1 3/8 X 1, and the candy wrap is 3 X 2 1/2.  I used two glue dots to hold the candy in place, then folded the bottom section up over it.  I threaded the Whisper White 1/8″ ribbon behind the holder and up through the front hole.  Then I just tied a regular bow.  Other than adding the sentiment, that is it.  Easy as can be.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I will have a regular card project for you tomorrow.  All of the supplies I used today are listed at the bottom of the page.

Leaping With Joy for Pals March Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I have used a variety of stamp sets, most are from Sale-A-Bration, and created a very unique card, for me anyway.  I tend to do cards with different folds and bright colors.  Today’s card is definitely a Different Fold!

 

So Hoppy Together, 149725

 

Aren’t these frogs adorable?  I love their positions and features.  I wanted to make something different for today’s Blog Hop and decided to finally try the box card.  I have had it on my desk forever it seems.  You will love to know that it is really very easy to make.

Here is a close up of the frogs.

 

So Hoppy Together, 149725

 

And here is how it looks when you would pull it out of the envelope.  Yes, it fits in a regular A2 envelope.  It measures 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  Woohoo!!

 

 

In addition to the frog stamp set , which is So Hoppy Together, I used another SAB set that is new.  It is More Than Words.  Another new item is the DSP in the photo above.  It is a reverse side of the Painted Season DSP coming in March.  I forgot to mention that the black checked paper is a reverse side of the Botanical Butterfly DSP, one of the SAB items.  Although I did not photograph it well, the new punch coming also in March is the Story Label Punch.  It is used on the left side flap with the Happy Birthday.

A couple of the sentiments came from Piece of Cake and Incredible lIke you.  I was trying to get coordinating sentiments, and may have gone a tad overboard!  Another new item coming in March is framelit dies that match the frogs!  That would have made me happy, as I fussy cut the frogs today!  Stay tuned for these great products beginning March 1.

Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  I will prepare a template, and maybe a video (once I get the nerve) on the box card.  It truly is so much easier than I originally thought.  As always, the supply list is at the bottom of the post.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 13, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Spring Has Sprung” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

Simple Ghirardelli Treat Holder

I was looking for card inspirations by looking through some old swap and Make ‘n Take cards when I discovered today’s project.  It is a very simple treat holder.  It is pretty quick and is really cute.  Hopefully I can explain it so you understand the simpleness of it.  That’s a lot of pressure!  LOL!!

I will apologize to the originator up front.  I have had this for some time, so I have no idea who to give credit for designing this. When I looked as I was getting ready to post, I did find several videos and posts of this on Pintrest.

 

Beauty Abounds, 148726

 

I love the softness of this sheet of designer series paper.  It is from the FREE Sale-A-Bration Botanical Butterfly DSP.  The butterflies on the sentiment are from the same pack of paper as well.  They were punched with the Butterfly Duet punch.  You may not be able to see from the angle, but there are two punched butterflies stacked on top of each other.  I will add that I have not previously been a huge butterfly fan.  The two new butterfly bundles, and especially this punch, have pretty much converted me!

And here is the back.  I added a small piece of paper so you write a message and sign your name.

 

 

This is a cute holder that you could make multiples of very quickly.  And it would be fairly easy to alter the size to maybe hold a Tea Packet or something similar.  Even down size to hold a Mini Ghirardelli chocolate.

I will give one Big Tip in making this.  Actually it is almost a must have.  The Simply Scored Tool, which to me is a must have anyway, makes this quick.  But the tip is to take a Black Marker and draw a line down the 6″ line.  It helps me with a lot of projects.  But for this one you are doing all your scoring from there.

Begin with a 6 X 6 DSP.  Place it with the points in a diamond shape and lined up on the 6″ line of the Simply Scored.  Score at 4 1/2, and 7 1/2.  Turn and line up the other points on the 6″ line in the diamond shape.  This time score at 5 1/4, 6, 6 3/4.

Now fold and burnish on all the lines.  (From the two large scores, you want to choose your outer paper side. )  Fold those to the center and then fold in half with the three folds at the bottom.  Push the center one up into the center of the two.  You are finished!!  How easy is that??  Then just decorate as you see fit.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return on Monday .  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.
