Botanicals for You and Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack Card Class by Stampin' Up - Tags Holder Box XIII

Would you believe that it is supposed to be in the high 50's and low 60's all this week and into the weekend!!!  Amazing Michigan weather.  I sure hope we have an early Spring and a hot Summer!  Wouldn't that be nice!

On my blog the last couple of weeks, I shared a Stampin' Up Botanicals for You Card Class that Stampin' Up so generously shared with us Demonstrators to use for teaching classes.  It has instructions to make 4 cards and a card box holder using SU's Botanicals for You Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set, Botanical Blooms Stamp Set, Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper, Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack and Botanical Builder Framelits Die's.  

I am also going to share some envelopes, gift tags and a gift tag box holder that I designed which revolves around the design of SU's class.

You've seen the cards, the card box holder and the tags, so it's on to the tag box holder that I designed that revolves around the design of SU's class.  

Let's get started with the tag box holder.  This is the final blog post in this series of the SU Botanicals for You Card Class.  The instructions to make the box are at the end of this blog post:

I liked the way my tag box holder turned out that I ended up making two of them.  One in Stampin' Up's Whisper White Cardstock and...

One in SU Cajun Craze Cardstock...

I die-cut an extra strip of the long leaf stem in SU Old Olive Cardstock and adhered it across the bottom of my tag box holder using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I also used the long leaf stem die in SU's Botanical Builders Framelits to die-cut the top of my tag holder box.

You really don't need a belly band on this box holder; but, I wanted to add some flair and keep it revolving around SU's Botanicals for You Card Class.

I die-cut one Large Flowers using SU's Botanical Builder Framelits Die's from SU's Cajun Craze Cardstock.  

I stamped the little flowers from SU's Botanical Blooms Stamp Set 3 times onto SU's Hello Honey Card Stock.  I die-cut one Medium flower from SU's Hello Honey Cardstock and one Small flower from the flower stamped Hello Honey Card Stock.  I used my Petal Roller Tool and gave some texture to my flowers by curling and cupping the flower petals. 

Then I die cut the Spiral flower center from SU's Basic Black Cardstock. .

I removed the petals from the Large Cajun Craze flower.  Using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue, I adhered the Small Hello Honey flower to the Medium Hello Honey flower and then to the Large Cajun Craze Flower without the petals.  I added the spiral flower center using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue. 


I then die-cut the Small Leaf from SU's Mint Macaron Cardstock and stamped it twice; once using the Dotted Vein stamp and once using the longer Vein stamp in SU's Mint Macaron Ink.

I adhered the two flowers and the leaf to my belly band using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I added one of SU's Basic Jewel Rhinestones to the center of my flower. 


Below are my hand written instructions to make my Botancials for You Tag Box Holder.  Just cut, score, fold, tape and assemble.


That's all I have for today.  Come back tomorrow where I'll be sharing Stampin' Up's February Monthly Paper Pumpkin kit.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  Please be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
