This year I had some fun making little boxes to fit some Smarties (like chocolate M&M's for my American readers), some Excel gum, a little souvenir pin from Canada and a homemade bookmark. I got the idea for the box from the boxes I made here.
I adjusted the dimensions of the red box in the picture above to change it from a square to a rectangle that would fit a Smarties box and was shallower so I could pack them all in my suitcase.
- I used the Flower Frenzy Bigz L die to create all the flowered embellishments for the belly bands on the boxes. I'm sure going to get my money's worth out of that die! I love that you can get so many great floral shapes in one swipe of the Big Shot! Here I used Strawberry Slush, Smoky Slate and Whisper White cardstock.
- The tops of the boxes were made using 6 1/2" x 4" pieces of Strawberry Slush DSP from the 2013-15 Designer Series Paper Stacks. They were scored at 3/4" on all sides. The bottoms were made from Strawberry Slush cardstock cut at 7" x 4 1/2" and scored at 1" on all sides.
And speaking of boxes:
Win Free Stamp Sets, Big Shot Dies, Blendabilities and More!I want you to know that inside each of these adorable containers is a pretty significant prize including a free stamp set, a free die for the Big Shot, free Blendabilities, etc. And you could win one of these prizes simply by booking a private class with me before August 30 or by signing up to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator on my team. Here's how to do it:
1. Each of these containers is made from a 6" x 6" square of 2013/15 In Colour Designer Series Paper Stack. Choose one of the 5 colours: Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush. Email me with the colour you want to pick, and some dates in July and August that you could do a private class with 5 or 6 of your friends (your house or mine) OR follow the links on the top menu to Join My Team.
2. I will email you back and let you know the prize you could win. I will bring your prize with me when I go to do your private class or when you have completed the paperwork to become a demonstrator.
Sounds fun? (And Easy?) The deadline for this contest is after I return home from Conventions on Monday July 21, 2014 at 12 midnight PDT.
