Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Celebrate the good stuff
Good morning everyone! Today I have a variation of the Lots to Love Box Framelits to share with you that’s the perfect size to hold a gift card. Of course, the full-sized box can hold a gift card, but you can’t make two of them from one piece of A4 cardstock.
I’m using the fun Picture Perfect DSP on my project today, I’ve fallen in love with the photo realistic side of this paper stack, it’s just so perfect for a celebration, bright and cheerful and is suitable for everyone 🙂
To create this size box cut your A4 cardstock into quarters and run two pieces through the Big Shot using the Lots to Love Box Framelits. I lined my cardstock up so the top was just above the lid of the box and used the release circles to make sure it was straight from side to side.
I decided to trim an extra 1/2″ off the bottom of each piece to make it a closer fit for a gift card, but this is optional. Lay your pieces on top of each other to make sure they’re the same size and trim any difference and then assemble the box as usual. Et voila, a mini box 🙂
The finished dimensions of this box are: 3-3/4″ x 3″ x 5/8″
I had the guys in mind when I was creating this project and chose Bermuda Bay cardstock for the base and carefully selected how to trim my 6″ x 6″ DSP piece to 2-3/4″ 3-1/2″ (x2) to get the blue iced donut as the focal image for the front.
The word “celebrate” was die cut from Basic Black using the Celebrate You Thinlits (a FREE Level 2 Sale-A-Bration choice) and is the perfect fit on the front of the box. I stamped the words “the good stuff” in Bermuda Bay ink on a scrap of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and punched it out using the Everyday Label Punch. I trimmed that down and tied it onto the box using some Solid Basic Black Baker’s Twine. The twine helps keep the box securely closed and just slides off for easy opening.
I had to add just a touch of bling and a few of the Tutti-Frutti Sequins were the perfect touch and I’m loving the adhesive on the back, it makes them so easy to use 🙂
I hope you liked my fun, quick and easy project today. I love how I can get two from one sheet of A4 cardstock and think these would be great for lots of other little gifts as well, such as jewellery, sweets, little stationery items and, of course, cash is always gratefully accepted 😉
I still have a few more variations of this versatile box share with you and hope you’ll enjoy them as much I liked creating them!
