You can make a little gift a little more fun when you put it in a super cute handmade gift box. Learn how easy it is to make your own bitty gift boxes that are sized just right for small gifts, money, or treats.
Make a treat extra sweet by presenting it in a box you make yourself. Cut handles, windows, and accents to dress up the base box, then fill it with goodies. With Thinlits dies and the Big Shot, it’s easy to make multiple boxes in minutes. Watch to see how.
The inspiration this week for share Sunday comes from Steeped Tea Tourist Tin and the new Stampin Up A Nice Cuppa Designer Series Paper!. I made a box and decorated it with Stampin Up A Nice Cuppa Tea paper to fix one of the Steeped Tea Tourist Tins. The Steeped Tea Tourist Tin has a sliding top that works great with Steeped Tea triangles. What do you think?
The Stampin Up Botanical Gardens Bundle is so much fun to make projects. This project is a box of six different cards that I made. What do you think of these cards? I have included a short video about this wonderful product line.
Let your creativity bloom. It’s easy when you have the Botanical Blooms Stamp Set, Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper, and Botanical Builders Framelits Dies. See how to combine stamped images, patterned paper, and die cuts to create gorgeous stamped images and accents. I LOVE this bundle and have many more projects planned for the blog!
This past Sunday in the Share Sunday entry I included a triangle box. Today I have included pictures of triangle boxes I made with the Stampin Up Pretty Petals Designer Series paper and butterfly dies and the recently retired Stampin Up Winter Wonderland Designer paper. I originally saw directions for this box in a recent issue of the Tattered Lace magazine. What do you think of the triangle boxes?
Here are the instructions for making these triangle boxes which can be made with any weight and size paper.
This little box literally takes minutes to make. You can create this in almost any size paper as long as you start with squares!. A great origami that kids can make too!
You will need three sheets of square paper, any weight and size, this is a great introduction to ‘modular origami’ which uses more than one sheet of paper to make the final model. I suggest the use of a bone folder to get a crisp and accurate fold.
1. Start with 3 sheets of square paper, it doesn’t matter if the paper has a white side, you won’t see it.
2. Start white side up.
3. Fold the paper in half diagonally to make a triangle.
4. Fold the right and left corners up to meet the top of the triangle.
5. This is what you should have.
6. Unfold the left and right corners.
7. Fold the top point down to the middle.
8. Unfold the top.
9. Make two more exactly the same way.
10. Holding one in each hand, put the left side of the second one in your right hand into the opposite flap of the first one..
11. This is what it should look like.
12. Now put the third one into the second one.
13. Now bring the first one around to meet the third one to connect them all.
I love this stamp and enjoyed making this gift set. The video was created on Veteran Day but unfortunately I did not get it posted as originally planned. The free directions for this gift set can be found here for personal use. Dove of Peace Gift Set
