3D projects


I have this cute little box to share with you today.  It is a Tent box.  I have used the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  We made this box at our team meeting last month.  It’s such a sweet size and you can fill the box with some chocolate treats and wrap it up in some gorgeous paper.

Bird Ballad Tent Box

The little flowers from the Free As A Bird stamp set were stamped on scrap white with Memento Black ink and then coloured with the Petal Pink and the Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.  Then they were then handcut.

I love this paper from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper packThe paper creates a little wrapper around the box.  You could make this style any size you like.

So would you like to make your own little Tent Box.

You can find it on Sam’s blog – Pootles -> HERE. 

Thanks for visiting me today.


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.

I have been wanting to make these little Take-Out boxes as they call them for such a long time.  I just haven’t had a chance to.  Then last month at our Team Meeting Ness showed us how they were done.  Well, I didn’t actually get around to making mine then – perhaps a little too much chatting was being done!!!!  Anyway, I managed to make mine the next day.  It’s just taken me this long until I have had a chance to show you.

This was cut with the Petal Cone Die.  I was going to explain how to do it but it was getting a bit complicated.  I will try and make another one soon and show you some step-by step photos.  Would you like that????

Before I assembled the box I stamped it with the ‘Delicate Doilies’ stamp set with Whisper White and Pretty in Pink. I added some wire (just the sort you might use for beading).  Then I added the banner.  It is a bit hard to tell but I sponged the edges in Pretty in Pink and stamped over it with the small doily from the ‘Delicate Doilies’ set.  The ‘Thanks’ is from the set ‘Kindness Matters’.  I punched out a doily with the Doily Triple Layer Punch and added a Rhinestone to the centre.  Then it was a matter of tying around some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and some White Organza.  These would be great to fill with some chocolates.  Maybe an idea for Easter coming up very quickly????

Have a great weekend.  I do hope it is a dry one this weekend.  I think we are all getting a little water-logged around here!
