Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Bubbles & Fizz class treats
Only 5 days left of Sale-A-Bration!
The sweet little somethings I’d ordered for my youngest to take as a class treat arrived last week – just in time, phew! So over the weekend we packaged them up using the bright & cheerful Bubble & Fizz DSP (a FREE Sale-A-Bration item) ready to head off to school today 🙂
I found the pens here after seeing this post by Sam Donald (Pootles) a demonstrator in the UK. I have a bit of a soft spot for pretty stationery and had to have a peek after I’d read Sam’s post, well, bunny pens were too hard to resist and I thought they’d make a nice change from chocolate 🙂
The bunny head is the cap and I knew I wanted to show it off – it is the cutest part after all, so after a little finagling I came up with this simple box tube.
The finished dimensions are 7-1/4″ x 3/4″ x 3/4″ and each one only uses a 8 x 3-1/2″ piece of DSP, which means you can make four from one 12″ x 12″ sheet of DSP.
Note: To make four boxes cut a 4″ strip from your 12″ x 12″ paper first, you’ll make one from that strip and the other 3 from the remaining 8″ x 12″ piece.
To make each box:
Score @ 3/4″, 6-1/2″ & 7-1/2″ (on the 8″ side)
Score @ 3/4″, 1-1/2″, 2-1/4″ & 3 (on the 3-1/2″ side)
- Fold & burnish your score lines
- Remove the small rectangle on the base and cut up the other score lines to create the base tabs
- (Optional) Fold up the base tab that will be at the front of your box and insert a 1/2″ Circle Punch as far as it will go, centre and punch. You will take a notch out of the base which I trimmed off, it won’t affect the finished box.
- Pinch the top and close as desired, I stapled mine closed and added some ribbon to cover the staple.
These pens had to be put into the boxes through the punched hole to have their faces showing so I just stapled mine shut, but if you were putting something else in there you could close them differently.
The pens do distort the bottom of the box a little, but this was a small price to pay to have their sweet faces showing 🙂
I kept the decoration very simple as we didn’t have much time to get them finished. My youngest stamped the floral image from Wood Words in Daffodil Delight – stamped off once – over two pieces of Whisper White cardstock to create a background.
We punched out the tags using the Pretty Label Punch and I added a sentiment from Circle of Spring (retired – sorry) in Lemon Lime Twist, Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay and popped them up on our boxes with dimensionals.
I have to admit that the Bubble & Fizz DSP is my favourite out of all the designer series paper options from both the Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Catalogues this year and is only available for a few more days 😦 Although I will be sad to see it go this was a great project to use it up and spread some happiness around 🙂
