One Little Box, Two SU Tools and Two Stamp Sets


This is a fairly quick little project I created on Friday using the Gift Box Punch Board and the Envelope Punch Board, plus two new Holiday stamp sets.

8x8 sheet of Crumb Cake/1.75 x 1.75 x 3.25














The box went together very quickly and so did the tag. The bow was made using one strip of card stock, 1"x 10" and the Envelope Punch Board. I had gotten the instructions from  Bona over on LiveLoveScrap . I thought it was ingenious.

Here are some pictoral instructions:


TIP: If you don't like your box being bulky inside, just cut one corner  out of each section. Also, be careful when you put the notches together to close the box. They tend to  be a little delicate. I'm speaking from experience here. (smile)


Cut a piece of paper of your choice, 1" x 10".

Place the strip on your Envelope Punch Board  and punch one end at 2" and move it to 5" and punch, flip it over and do the same on the opposite side. On the remaining side just punch at the 2" mark.

Put the ends into the channel, making sure to center it.


 Lightly curl the paper to form a soft "bow". Be careful not to crease it.




Crease the tails towards the front and put a glue dot were the body of t he bow and tail intersect.
Put the bow together making sure the curves match up.

This is the finished bow. As you can see, it's just a little under4" long. I also put a glue dot under the curve to attach the tail. You can use a thin strip around the middle, button or flower to finish it off.

Sorry about this being a little long. If you have any questions, about this project or the products used, please don't hesitate to contact me at,  bpb4553@gmail.com.

I hope your weekend was fun, restful and you had time to craft. Have a great week and stay CRAFTY my friends.

Hugs,
Bernadette

    1. Pamela, I'm not absolutely sure. I know there is a gal from the UK that does boxes and she might have one the similar size. This is her website: http://pootles.co.uk/ She also has videos on YouTube under the same name. I hope that helps. B
