3D projects, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, Tutorials


In a post or 2 back I showed you a cute little Christmas Treat Box and I said then that I would show you how I made it.  I thought I would tell you about it today. It is so quick to make and seriously you can make up a number of these in no time.

Here is the box if you forgot – and to save you going back a couple of posts.  You can go back if you like to though. 🙂 You can see all the other fun projects I shared from my Holiday Catalogue Review too while you are there.


These are so Christmas-y.  These are called “SEVENS” boxes.  WHY? Well it is all in the measurements.  I have made a number of these over the years.  I like how quick they are to make and you can fit a fair amount of treats inside.

I  will tell you the measurements and then give you a link to the original creator for the assembly of the box.  On that blog post it doesn’t have Imperial measurements so I have put created one for you my lovely friends if you use Imperial Measurements. 🙂


Using a full sheet of A4 card, score your card.  On the short side score at 7cm and 14cm. On the long side score at 7cm, 14cm, 21cm and 28cm.

Rather than relay the cutting and assembling of the box you can refer to the original blog post which you can find HERE at Marelle’s blog.

2 AND A HALFER BOX (Imperial)

It doesn’t really have the same ring to it as a “SEVENS” box does it but it would be a bit odd to call it that!).

NB: Please try this on scrap paper first before creating it on card to see that the measurements are correct.  This will be a slightly smaller box that the “SEVENS” box but still a good size.

Cut your card to 10 3/4″ x 7 1/2″.  On the short side score at 2 1/2″ and 5″.  On the long side score at 2 1/2″, 5″, 7 1/2″ and 10″. Cut and Assemble the box as in the link in the Metric measurements above.

Once you have made one I don’t think you will stop.

Enjoy. 🙂


3D projects, Stampin' Up!


Here we are in Box Week at Box #6.  These boxes are getting bigger now!


I found the template for this box on Becky’s 12 Days of Christmas 2009 edition.  You can find the details here.  This was the Bow Box in the collection.  If you scroll down the blog and look in the Right Hand column you can see the 2009 projects there.  You can purchase the Tutorial there too.

My box was created in Cherry Cobbler.  The frame on the front was stamped using “Memorable Moments” and then cut with the Labels Framelits.  The greeting is from “More Merry Messages”.  A little Candy Cane stamped from “Scentsational Season” and cut with the Holiday Framelits finishes the front.

Here is the top view.


The top was cut in Gumball Green and DSP strips (from “Be of Good Cheer DSP pack”) were adhered to the edges and top.  I cut 2 snowflakes with the Snow Flurry Die in Silver Glimmer Paper and Very Vanilla.  These were layered together.  The Cherry Cobbler circle in the centre was punched out using one of the small circles on the Owl Punch.  An adhesive pearl finished off the centre.  I cut a piece of the Cherry Cobbler Tulle and gathered that together and wrapped some thread around the centre to hold it all in place.  Once all the layers were adhered together they were fixed in place on top of the box with Dimensionals.  This box stands at 10.5cm or about 4 1/4″ tall.

Thanks for looking today.  We have our last box for our Box Week tomorrow so be sure to stop by.


3D projects, Stampin' Up!


I have made a lot of these boxes over the last couple of years.  I found the idea here when I first made them.   This is made from the Scallop Envelope Die.  I added a Christmas touch to this one.



Once again I added my little mate from “No Peeking” like on yesterday’s box.  He was coloured with markers and added on the greeting panel cut from the Apothecary Framelits.  The DSP is from the “Be of Good Cheer”.  Mmm this DSP is featuring a lot on these boxes!

Another cute box to fill with some little treats.

Come and visit me again tomorrow for Day 6.  I think these boxes are getting bigger as we go through the week. 🙂

3D projects


Christmas is fast-approaching whether we like it or not.  How are your plans coming along??  Why not join me next week for my ‘BOX WEEK’.  Each day starting on Monday I will share a different Gift Box for you.  I hope this might help you for Christmas.  So you don’t miss any make sure you have subscribed to my blog.  Just click on the link in the Right Hand column.  I can’t wait to share these boxes with you.  They have been a lot of fun creating them.

Here is a bonus one for you to get you started.  Don’t we all love this little Owl?  Why not a Christmas Owl! I have added him on a Treat box using the Scallop Envelope Die.  You can’t see the top view but I cut 2 of the Envelopes, cut off about 1/2″ on the bottom flaps and then adhered the 2 together.  I turned back the Scallop Envelope Flap and adhered them down.  This is just a good size for a small chocolate or little treat.


See you on Monday for Day 1 of ‘Box Week’.
