Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Karen Robinson – Big Shot Sundays – Fairy Favours
Welcome to the first regular feature on my blog, Big Shot Sundays. I love the Big Shot, it was one of the first items I bought when I became a demonstrator and I use it a lot. I’m really looking forward to sharing some of the beautiful items you can make with this tool each week.
I’m not really a girly girl but I do have a soft spot for some things and fairies is one of them (not the Disney type more the Flower Fairy type by Cicely Mary Barker), so when the new In Colours were announced Sweet Sugarplum instantly made me think of fairies and parties and I thought the Curvy Keepsake Box would make some lovely favours.
I cut and assembled the boxes (keeping them flat) before stamping the “fairy dust” from Celebrate Today in Sweet Sugarplum on all four sides. The butterfly from Grateful Bunch was stamped in Crumb Cake on the handle sides of the box and I highlighted the stars and butterfly wings with some clear Wink of Stella to give it some sparkle.
The little tags were made using the Acorn Builder Punch and Acorny Thank You and the thank you is from Circle of Spring. The acorn caps were Wink of Stella’d (you can never have too much shimmer) and were mounted onto a small gold foil doily and tied onto the boxes using white baker’s twine.
A rare successful shimmer shot! 🙂
These boxes might be small (6.4 x 7 x 6.4 cm) but you can fit loads of goodies in them. Besides sweets they can hold jewellery, hair accessories, little craft kits, small toys (quite a bit of Lego), little stationery items and these are just a few ideas. If you’d like to see more ideas using the Curvy Keepsake Box framelits please visit my pinterest page, I’ve pinned just a handful of the wonderful ideas out there using this gorgeous box.
I hope you liked my first Big Shot Sunday and this quick and easy idea using the Curvy Keepsake Box. This box really is one of my favourites because it’s so easy to put together (there are only two pieces), it’s self-closing and you can open it up without destroying it. If you’d like a bit more fairy on these there is a new stamp set coming called Fairy Celebration (available June 1st) which would suit these little boxes perfectly, not too long to wait now 🙂
