3D projects, Christmas, Stampin' Up!

CHRISTMASTIME TALL BOX!

The Christmastime is Here Suite has been with us all month.  I have been so busy with projects for Onstage that I haven’t had near enough time with it.  I have been using the papers particularly though.

Recently I made a tall gift box using the Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I have had lots of lovely comments from class members when they see the box so thought you might like to see it yourself.

I love that this paper has the gold embossed outlines over one side of the paper.  There are 3 different designs in the pack with some type of gold touches.  It is gorgeous.  AND I love that this paper could easily be used for any occasion not just Christmas.

Here is the box I made.  Fill it with chocolates for a lovely friend, wrap around some of the gorgeous Gold ribbon and add a sentiment piece.  What more do you need.

The sentiment is from the set A Big Thank You.  The flowers were fussy cut from some of the paper.

Here is how to make your own Tall box.

CHRISTMASTIME IS HERE TALL BOX TUTORIAL

Cut card to 21cm x 21cm (8 ¼” x 8 ¼”)

Score on one side at 5cm and 19cm (2”, 7 ½”)

Turn and score on the other side at 5cm, 10cm, 15cm and 20cm.

(2”, 4”, 6”, 8”)

Card mats for the side: 4 each of 4.6cm x 13.6cm (1 7/8” x 5 3/8”)

Designer Series Paper: 4 each of 4.2cm x 13.2cm (1 ¾” x 5 ¼”)

Scraps for decorating.

Gold Ribbon

1. Fold on all score lines.

2. On the long side cut up on the score lines to the score line that runs across. This creates your tabs to fold up. Cut up each tab on both the top of the card and the bottom. The smaller tabs will be the bottom of the box. The larger tabs will form the top of the box.

3. On the short side of the card cut on the 2 score lines that are on the very narrow tab. Cut off completely the top tab and the bottom tab so you only have a narrow tab section in the middle.

4. Adhere the paper pieces to the card mat pieces and adhere them all to the sides of the box. You can adhere them after the box is assembled but it is a little easier to do it first.

To assemble the box:

5. Fold the score lines to form a box shape. Place adhesive on the outside of the narrow side tab and adhere the box together. On the small tabs at the bottom place adhesive on the outside of 3 of the tabs and fold in adhering them together on top of each other. Fold the last unglued tab over the top.

6. The top flaps will fold in and will hold together with wrapping the ribbon around.

7. Decorate the box as you like.

Hope you make one of the boxes for yourself.  They are very easy.

SIMPLE AND AVID DAISY LANE!

I wasn’t sure about these cards and I’m still not but you know I am showing you anyway because sometimes things don’t always go right.

For these 2 cards I wanted to use the Daisy Lane to make a card for #simplestamping which is a big focus of Stampin’ Up! at the moment but then step it up a little for a Casual or avid stamper.  

Firstly to define the two.  Simple stamping is for those just starting out with limited supplies and putting together a card with card, ink and stamps.

A Casual stamper is one who likes to make a card semi-regularly you might stay.  They are starting to collect a few more supplies and is using more involved steps and techniques.

An Avid Stamper who is one that you could say is “obsessed”.  They collect all the tools and stamps and will create very regularly.

Who do you say you would be??

We have a card more for the simple stamping first.

This card is not quite one layer.  There is the Rich Razzleberry card base and Petal Pink card mat.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Day stamp set with the little flourish from A Big Thank You.  So there is more than one stamp set that you would normally use on a simple card for someone who has very limited supplies.

We have the next one which is for the Casual/Avid stamper. 

This one has a couple of more layers.  Using the same stamp sets though.  Adding the extra elements gives it a little more detail.

I hope you like them. As I said I am still not sure about them and the lighting is not great but there they are for you.

Have a great day,

Jenny
