Made for Mum – Tiny Box

Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Made for Mum – Tiny Box

Welcome to the second project in my Made for Mum series. Today I have a teeny little box to share with you made using the decadent Painted With Love DSP (retiring – available while stocks last).

This is a much smaller project than the last one, but you know what they say, “good things come in small packages” and I’m sure you could find lots of little luxuries to fit in this one 🙂

This little box only uses a 3″ x 9″ piece of Painted With Love DSP, which means you could make 5 of these from just one 12″ x 12″ piece! The finished dimensions are only 3″ x 1″ x 1″ and this is the perfect project to use that over-the-top pattern on, they never seem quite as in your face in small amounts 🙂

The Painted With Love DSP is a specialty paper and thicker than our regular DSP and is more than sturdy enough to use for small boxes and bags, but you could also make this box from cardstock and add just a layer to the lid which would make your paper go even further.

I designed this box to fit a Migrastick, which I love, but it can also hold a standard lipstick or chapstick as well.

As this box is so small I kept the decoration quite simple, a sentiment and leaves from Sure Do Love You (retiring) and some pretty flowers from Ribbon of Courage made a simple tag to tuck under a bow of white organza ribbon.

A couple of gold hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes (retiring – available while stocks last) tie in nicely with the gold foiling on the DSP and added the finishing touch.

Here’s the how to:

Finished Dimensions: 3″ x 1″ x 1″
Cardstock/DSP: 3″ x 9″

  • Score @ 1″, 4″, 5″ & 8″ (on the long side)
  • Score @ 1″ & 2″ (on the short side)
  • Fold and burnish score lines
  • Trim as shown in the picture above
  • Use a small circle punch to create a finger notch (optional)
  • Apply adhesive to all the tabs
  • Assemble as usual and embellish as desired

A quick and easy, yet oh so pretty project for you today. Good quality cosmetics aren’t cheap and even though this box is small it could really be a decadent treat or you could put something much more affordable inside and make a stack of them for the Mother’s Day stall at school.

See you tomorrow!
