Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | 12 Days of Christmas – Day 7
Welcome to Day 7 of my 12 Days of Christmas series. Today I have a really quick and easy, slightly over-the-top table favour to share with you made using the Envelope Punch Board.
I’ve seen several examples of stacked boxes recently and thought I’d try one on a much smaller scale and came up with a version that will only take up as much room as a water-glass and I think would be a lovely addition to any table 🙂
I used the Envelope Punch Board and Be Merry DSP (from the Annual Catalogue) to create these sweet little boxes.
I already had the sizing for the largest one and used the Box Buster Tool by Joanne James of The Crafty Owl to work out the size of DSP needed and scoring measurements for the top two to get the change in size I wanted.
This is a great resource if you want to make boxes using the Envelope Punch Board and I am so grateful she shares it freely 🙂 I was starting to lose my mind trying to work it out myself 😉
I tied my stack together using some black bridal tulle (non Stampin’ Up!), I love this stuff, it ties beautifully every time! My youngest son is very keen for these to be at our table this year and asked very nicely for this one to be his 🙂 so I made a simple tag using the Wood Crate Framelits and Labeler Alphabet – its reserved now 😉
The largest box requires a piece of DSP: 6″ x 6″
Score @ 2-1/8″ & 3-7/8″ on all four sides
Finished Dimensions: 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ x 1-1/4″
The medium box uses a piece of DSP: 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
Score @ 1-7/8″ & 3-5/8″ on all four sides
Finished Dimensions: 2″ x 2″ x 1-1/4″
The smallest box uses a piece of DSP: 4-3/4″ x 4-3/4″
Score @ 1-1/2″ & 3-1/4″ on all four sides
Finished Dimensions: 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ x 1-1/4″
You can make all three boxes from just one sheet of 12″ x 12″ DSP and have a piece leftover for another one, this means you can get 16 full stacks from just one pack of DSP!!! Which makes this not only a quick and easy project but an economical one as well 🙂
When I make packaging I like to see what I can fit inside and I was surprised with how much this project can hold. The smallest box holds a Ferrero Rocher perfectly, the medium has three Cadbury Dream trees and the largest one has a Chocolate Santa, Caramello Santa and two popping candy Elves.
If you don’t want to give sweets, lots of other small gifts would fit in there as well. Even though they’re made from paper the contents I added filled each box perfectly and made them quite sturdy which really helped when I tied them together with the tulle.
I liked the idea of an opening lid so made insert tabs and slid the top flap inside to close each box. This way the box can be opened easily and reused or displayed after it’s emptied 🙂
*I forgot to take pictures of the construction stages, I’ll add them tomorrow – sorry
I hope you liked my little stacked table favour, these are so cute in person and will easily fit in the palm of your hand, but I think will add the finishing touch to my table this year.
I’ll see you tomorrow with Day 8!
