The Eastern Palace Suite Bundles went live Monday for all Customers to order. This is something new that Stampin' Up is offering all Customers. You can order on-line from me at www.stampinup.com and please chose me, Lynn Gauthier, as your Demonstrator.
Stampin' Up also restocked the Clearance Rack last week. There's some awesome, awesome deals. And, don't forget about the Retiring List of Products.
My share for today is a Note Card Box that I made with my Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie. The Box holds the 4 cards that I designed and shared on yesterdays blog post using Stampin' Up's It's a Sara Thing April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Set, Blossom Builder Punch, Everyday Jars and Stitched Shapes Framelits and Rose Garden and Butterflies Thinlits dies.
Let's take a look:
Kadie and I were inspired by a video we saw on a blog called CardsandaCuppa to make this Note Card Box with a Lid. Click Here to see the video. I did change a measurement or two from the video.
So, here is my version:
For the bottom of the box:
Take an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of Cardstock. With the short side at the top of your Trimmer, cut at 6" so you have a 6" x 11" piece of Cardstock. (Set the other piece aside for the Lid of the Box).
With Short side again at the top of your Trimmer, Score at 1" and 5".
Turn your Cardstock so the Long side is at the top of your Trimmer, Score at 5" and 6".
Trim your 5" and 6" score lines up to the 1" Long score lines on both sides to create your Bottom flaps as shown in the picture above.
Fold all score lines.
Adhere your Tear & Tape or Mono Multi Purpose Glue to your Bottom flaps, fold in and then adhere to your Side flaps. Do the same with your Side flaps.
For the Lid of the Box:
Take the 2-1/2" x 8-1/2" remaining piece of Cardstock and put in your Trimmer. With the Long side at the top of your Trimmer, Score at 3/8", 4-7/16", 5-1/2", 9-9/16" and 10-5/8".
Turn your Cardstock so the Short side is at the top of your Trimmer, Score at 1-1/16".
See picture above to follow along with the cutting of the Flaps:
On the 1-1/16" edge of your Cardstock, cut off the first 3/8". Cut your next 3 score lines up to the 1-1/16" score line to create your flaps.
Go to the last score line and cut off the bottom section as shown in the picture above.
Fold all score lines.
Adhere Tear & Tape or Mono Multi Purpose Glue to the Center (Middle) Flap and fold in and adhere Top sides to Flap.
Adhere the last Flap inside the Lid.
Adhere the 3/8" Tab inside the Lid.
I hope this makes sense. With my measurements and watching how it was put together in the video, I'm sure it will work out for you.
You can go to my blog post from yesterday to see how I made the Note Cards and Envelopes. Here's the link htmlhttp://lynnslocker.blogspot.com/2017/05/stampin-up-its-sara-thing-bunch-of.html
In the picture above, I show how I inserted my Cards and Envelopes. They stick out of the top of the box about an 1/8" so I inserted a Note Card inside an Envelope and then into the Box until all 4 were placed in the Box. The Lid will rest slightly on top of the Note Cards.
To Embellish the Box:
For the Bottom of the Box, I trimmed out a piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock to measure 3-1/2" x 4-7/8" and adhered it to the Box with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
I adhered one of the Black and White Sticker Panels from It's a Sara Thing April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit over the Pink Pirouette Cardstock.
For the Lid of the Box:
I trimmed out a piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock to measure 1" x 3-1/2" and adhered it to the top of the Box with Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
I tied a pretty bow around the Lid of the Box with a piece of 3/8" Stitched Basic Black Satin Ribbon (Retired).
You can go to my blog post from yesterday to see how I embellished the rest of the Box.
LOVE how my project turned out! So fun and so pretty!
That's all I have for today. I hope you enjoyed my blog post and thanks for stopping by!
