It's been kind of dreary and damp out the last couple of days. I'm looking forward to seeing the sun shine which is supposedly forecast for tomorrow. It is supposed to be in the mid 60's again this weekend. Crazy for Michigan, eh!
Let's take a look at my project for today:
Pictured above are two boxes (2 1/4"H, 2"W, 1 1/4"D) that I created to hold some of the smaller tags that I designed using Stampin' Up's Note Tag Punch and SU's Tags & Labels Framelits Dies.
I created a belly band for the box on the left and then used some Stampin' Up Washi Tape on the box on the right. Something different!
Here is the box with the belly band removed and the gift tags. I used Stampin' Up Old Olive cardstock for the box. I will provide the directions to make the box below in my post. This box is more complex to make.
I used SU's Merry Moments Designer Series Paper for the belly band. Using Stampin' Up's 1 3/8" Square Punch (Retired, you can always use your trimmer), I punched a square out of SU's Real Red cardstock. I stamped the postage stamp image from SU's Lots of Joy Stamp Set using SU Old Olive Ink onto SU's Whisper White Cardstock. I punched this out with Stampin' Up's Postage Punch (Retired). Using SU's Stampin' Dimensionals, I layered a SU Small Gold Doily, the Real Red square of cardstock and the stamped postage stamp together and attached it all with SU Stampin' Dimensionals on to the belly band.
For the tags, I stamped the tree tag image from SU's Hostess Antique Tags Stamp Set with SU Real Red Ink and Old Olive Ink onto SU's Whisper White Cardstock. I punched out the Real Red tags with SU's Note Tag Punch. I fussy cut the Old Olive trees and adhered them to the Real Red tags with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I used my SU Handheld punch to punch a hole and tied on some SU Old Olive Bakers Twine for the hanger.
A SU Basic Jewel Rhinestone was attached to each end of the Very Merry banner. I colored one rhinestone with a SU Real Red Stampin' Write Marker and attached it to the top of the tree.
For the second box of tags, I wrapped SU Washi Tape around the box for a belly band. I punched an oval from SU's Old Olive Cardstock using SU's Large Oval Punch. I punched a scalloped oval from SU's Merry Moments DSP and punched it out using SU's Scalloped Oval Punch. I stamped the sentiment using SU's Real Red Ink on SU's Whisper White Cardstock and punched it out using SU's Small Oval Punch. All were layered together and attached to the Washi Tape belly band using SU's Stampin' Dimensionals.
For the tags, I used Stampin' Up's Tags & Labels Framelits Dies and die cut some tags from SU's Merry Moments DSP and SU's Old Olive Cardstock in two different sized dies. I stamped the sentiment from SU's Peaceful Pines Stamp Set in SU's Real Red Ink on SU's Whisper White Cardstock and punched them out using SU's Snow Flurry Punch.
I adhered the Old Olive tag to the Merry Moments tag using MonoMulti Purpose glue. I then used SU Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the sentiment and adhered it to the tag. I added SU Basic Jewel Rhinestones to each sentiment. I threw in an extra tag where I used SU's Scalloped Circle Punch and Real Red Cardstock. Something different!
Here's another different tag that I made.
Now, for the directions! Good luck!
This is the diagram I came up with to re-create the box. Your cardstock is 6 3/4"x6". The solid lines are score lines. The dashed lines are cut lines. The squiggly marks are where you cut that portion out.
Above is what your cardstock should look like after scoring, trimming, rounding your corners on the flap and punching the front half slot.
Another long post! Phew!
