Stampin' Up Many Happy Birthdays February 2017 Monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit - Alternate Box and Envelopes - VI

Well, first off, I'm sorry that I didn't post yesterday.  I had a migraine and it through me for a loop.  I took my migraine pill right away so it stopped it from being full blown and incapacitated for 3 days like normal.  So, I'm happy that I can be up and about today.

My share for today is Stampin' Up's Many Happy Birthdays Monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit from February.  I designed a Box to hold the 3 Cards and Envelopes, the 3 Gift Card Holders, and the 3 Tags that I designed and the 3 Cards and 3 Envelopes that are featured in the Kit.  The Stampin' Up products that I used to make the Party Hats are Wish Big Framelits Dies, the Bows from Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit and Gold Sequin Trim.  I also used SU's SAB 3/8" Gold Metallic Ribbon and a Gold Clip..

Let's take a look:



I am so Stinkin' Happy with the way this box turned out!  I think it is one of the best that I designed so far!


I cut off the Tops of 2 of the Pre-Printed Cards in the Kit at about 4-1/8" down from the top of the Cards.  (On the Flirty Flamingo Card pictured above, you can see at the top of the box that I cut it off just between the Night of Navy Dashes and the Wider Whisper White line.) *The Card tops are turned up-side-down when you make the box.

I trimmed off the 2 tabs, folded the pieces on the Pre-Scored lines and adhered the 2 pieces together using the Pre-Adhered Adhesive Tape.


For the bottom of the box, I trimmed out a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to measure 3-1/8" x  3-1/4" and scored it at 1/4" on all four sides.  I snipped out the little squares at each corner.

I adhered SU's Tear & Tape Adhesive on all four sides and adhered it to the sides on the inside of the bottom of the Card Box.  Easy Peasy!!!


Pictured above are the Envelope Fronts and how I stamped them using the Many Happy Birthdays Stamp Set included in the Kit.


And, pictured above is how I stamped the Envelope Flaps.

Pictured above is how I attached the Envelopes to the back of the Card Box that I designed.  Using my SU 1/4" Handheld Circle Punch, I punched 2 holes in the back of the box about 5/8" down from the top and as close as you can get to the side corner on each side of the back of the box.

I thread SU's Sale-a-Bration 3/8" Gold Metallic Ribbon through each hole in the back of the box, then around my Envelopes and then tied it into a Bow.  Now, how cool is that!


Using my SU 1/4" Handheld Circle Punch, I punched 3 Circles from the leftover Gold Glitter Paper from the Kit and adhered them randomly to the front of my Card Box.


I pulled apart the strands in SU's SAB 3/8" Gold Metallic Ribbon and used one of the Gold Strands to tie all the strands together leaving one end long and one end short.  I stapled the Strands and a 3 to 3-1/2" piece of SU's Gold Sequin Trim to a left over piece of one of the Pre-Printed Cards that I made into a Banner by flagging one end.


Using one of SU's Gold Clips, I clipped the Banner to the corner of the box.


Pictured above are the 3 Alternate Cards that I designed and are in the front of the box.  I put these Cards in the front so you could see the word "HAPPY" through the open window.  

All of the projects on my blog post today have been featured on my blog for the past 5 days.

Then, the Envelopes are attached to the back of the Box with the SAB Ribbon.


And, pictured above is the 3 Alternate Treat Holders that I designed.  (These are not included in the box.) 


Phew....that was a long haul project; but, well worth the time and effort.  They were all easy to design and put together; it's just not so easy to explain it all in a blog post.  =)

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!
