Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Wonderful Things
I’m sure you’re all eagerly awaiting June 1st when our *new* 2018-19 Annual Catalogue goes live – I know I am 🙂 One of the perks of being a Demonstrator is having early access to new goodies and one of the choices on this years pre-order was the Rooted in Nature Bundle.
This is such a great, all-round bundle, suitable for everyone and any occasion and my project today uses several images and dies from this set as well as the coordinating Nature’s Poem DSP to create a sweet little box, big enough for all sorts of treats 🙂
The base of my box was made from Blackberry Bliss cardstock (a returning In Color) and I was lucky enough to have an entire pack of this in my stash – the advantages of hoarding 😉 It’s one of the coordinating colours in the Nature’s Poem DSP and I’m so pleased it’s being added to our core colour collection
(Note: I forgot to photograph my template so will add that to this post soon – sorry )
Here’s the how to:
Finished Dimensions: 4-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ x 3/4″
Cardstock: 6″ x 11″
DSP: 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ & 1-3/4″ x 4-1/4″
- Score @ 3/4″ & 5-1/4″ (on the 6″ side)
- Score @ 3″, 3-3/4″, 8-1/4″ & 9″ (on the 11″ side)
- Keeping the cardstock in the same position, Score @ 1″ to the 1st horizontal score line and from the 2nd horizontal score line down (on the 11″ side)
- Remove the rectangles created by the 1″ partial score lines
- Trim the rest of the score lines as usual and notch in the smallest tabs
- Adhere your DSP panels to the top and bottom of you box
- Add adhesive to the smaller cardstock panel to close up the bottom of the box
- Add adhesive to remaining small tabs only to create the lid of your box
- Decorate as desired
This type of box needs a little help to keep it closed and I opted for the Burlap Ribbon which I thought tied in perfectly with this suite of products. TIP: Burlap Ribbon can be a little tricky to keep together so I used Tear & Tape at the overlap and reinforced that with a couple of staples, the join will be hidden by the embellishment so it doesn’t matter if it’s messy 🙂
The rest of the embellishment is very simple, a few leaves stamped and die cut and two Copper Foil leaves die cut and embossed to add a little shine. The large tree trunk image was stamped in Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and fussy cut out and creates the base for the entire embellishment.
The sentiment was stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink, fussy cut and popped up for some extra texture and a few pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls bring in a little more colour and shine.
This entire embellishment was adhered to the Burlap Ribbon only with dimensionals so it can easily slide on and off the box.
I really enjoyed making today’s project, it was great to be able to break out an old favourite as well as play with brand new products 🙂 Most of the products used today won’t be available until June 1, but that’s not too far away now, yay!
