Bubbles & Fizz class treats

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 🙂

Little Paper Party, Bubbles & Fizz DSP, Wood Words, #3

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)

  1. Fold & burnish your score lines
  2. Remove the small rectangle on the base and cut up the other score lines to create the base tabs
  3. (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.
  4. 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 🙂

Little Paper Party, Bubbles & Fizz DSP, Wood Words, #2
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 🙂

Cheers,
Karen
