Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Gift box using Petals & Paisleys and Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, with Instructions.
Loving this nice big gift box, I wanted to see how big a box I could make using a sheet of A4 card but wanted to keep the measurements simple and this is what I came up with. The finished measurements are 6″ x 4″ x 1″ (15 x 10 x 2.5 cm) so a nice big box to fit lots of pressies in.
I have been looking forward to trying out my Stitched shape framelits but have been so busy with craft fairs and shopping trips etc… and have just not had chance till now, I must say I am very impressed, I love the effect it gives adding an extra touch to a plain shape.
I have used my favourite DSP of the moment Petals & Paisleys, I love the colour combinations and have picked out two of the colours from it which just happen to be two of my favourite Stampin’ Up! colours – Mint Macaron and Night of Navy, It also has Rich Razzleberry in it but I have ran out so couldn’t use it on this, good excuse for me to order more goodies Yay!
- Cut piece of card to 11″ x 8″ (27.5 x 20 cm )
- Score long side at – 1″, 5″, 6″ and 10″ (2.5, 12.5, 15 and 25 cm)
- Score short side at – 1″ and 7″ (2.5 and 17.5 cm)
- Fold and burnish all score lines
- On the long edges cut up the score lines to the first score line across
- wedge into each small tab
- Cut a piece of card 5 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ (14.7 x 9.7 cm)
- Cut a piece of DSP 5 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ (14.5 x 9.5 cm)
- Die cut the two largest oval Stitched Shapes Framelits.
- Layer the card and DSP on to one of the two large areas, this is now the top
- Stamp your chosen sentiment onto the smallest oval.
- Add ovals to your lid, I used dimensionals for lift.
- Using a circle punch make a notch in the front flap of your box (I forgot to do this on my box, but I made another one to check my metric measurements so did it on that one to show you it done)
- With the front facing add adhesive to each of the small tabs
- Make up the bottom of the box first bringing each of the 4 tabs in as shown to create your base.
- Adhere the final two tabs as shown to make your lid
- Close your box and add your ribbon around the edge (quick tip – put your ribbon round and tie and make your bow at the back of your box, this is sturdier so easier to tie, when you are happy with it take it off and place it correctly, I find my bows always look upside down so now you can place it whichever way looks best)
- Add your embellishments, I added some Night of Navy enamel shapes.
Hopefully these instructions are clear, I find numbers really easy to work with so can figure out the dimensions for my boxes in my head but putting that to paper might not be quite as clear so feel free to ask any question on anything your not sure of. I will be doing a blog post and hopefully video soon showing how I get my measurements for my boxes to fit the contents.
I have made this box as a gift and am going to make some matching goodies to go inside, I will share these with you next week.
