Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Rachel Tessman…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I am so honored to be the special guest this time for the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop! Each person participating in this hop found a project from my blog and used it for inspiration to do another version of it. In the paper crafters' world we call it CASEing. In this hop CASE stands for "Copy And Selectively Edit." Although you may have also heard it defined as "Copy And Share Everything/Everywhere." I am also participating by CASEing one of my own past projects! 😉
 
I decided to CASE a fun bunny box that I had made a few years ago with the March 2014 Glittered Greetings Paper Pumpkin kit.
Those of you who know me probably aren't surprised that I picked a Paper Pumpkin idea to CASE. hahaha! And I knew when I saw him that this cute little guy had to be revived.
 
This box is 2" x 2" x 2-1/4". It's the perfect size if you need to make several  treats for Easter or just give something small to a special someone. I could also see it as a baby shower favor – just change up the colors to match the decor!

For this box I used a couple products from the Occasions Catalog (Succulent Garden designer paper and ribbon) and one from the Sale-A-Bration flyer (Sweet Sugarplum glimmer paper). I also pulled out the fun Playful Pals stamp set and the super popular Stitched Shapes Framelits. (See below for a full list of the products I used.)
 
This is the original project I CASEd. You can view more photos of it along with a "how-to" video in my April 5, 2014 post.

I invite you to watch the video in that post to get a few more details in creating this type of box. But I also included here a few step-by-step photos and directions for my newest bunny box.

Punch this 2" x 5-1/2" piece at one end with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Then score the remaining white cardstock as shown: 2-1/4" in from the right and left sides (one of these score lines will already be there) and 1-3/4" in from the top and bottom.

Of the eight score lines that go out from the center square, trim along the 4 that are 1-3/4" in length. Then put Tear & Tape adhesive as shown on one side (middle top and bottom flaps).

Flip the paper over and put more Tear & Tape adhesive as shown on the other side (side top and bottom flaps).

Remove the tape backings and assemble. Bring the middle flaps inward and connect with the outer flaps…first with the ones that only have one strip of adhesive and then with the ones that have two strips.

With the box base done, punch and die-cut more bunny parts…a 3/4" Circle of Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper and four ovals using the smallest of the Stitched Shape Framelits (2 Whisper White and 2 Sweet Sugarplum).

The two in the middle will hold the Glimmer Paper 3/4" circle in place. The other 3 Glue Dots will adhere the folded over bunny head.

Attach the Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock and Succulent Garden Designer Paper pieces to the front and side panels of the box. Notice I cut my designer paper pieces from one 5-1/4" x 2" piece so the pattern flows from panel to panel.

When Stampin' Up! expanded into other countries I never dreamed that I would be connecting and making friends with so many wonderful people all over the world. It's the conventions & incentive trips that have physically brought us together, but it's Facebook, other social media and our blogs that have kept us connected.
 
Kylie Bertucci is one one of those wonderful people that I am so grateful I met. She is such a sweetheart – always willing to lend a helping hand! And I thank her for the fun, new experiences she has brought my way: the incentive trip blog hops, the Tutorial Bundle group, and of course this fun Crazy Crafters hop today. 
 
I also want to send a huge thanks to all the demonstrators that CASEd me in this hop. I was humbled by the sweet things that were said when we were preparing for this event. And as I write this, I am looking forward to seeing which projects of mine inspired all of them AND what they created. Be sure to visit each of these blogs by clicking on the names below. Have fun and let me know what you think!

Product List

Take note that the Retiring Products List will post soon. If not mid-April, for sure by the start of May. And when it does certain products tend to sell out quickly (sometimes even BEFORE the list posts) like the outgoing 2015-17 In Color re-inkers and cardstock packs: Mint Macaron, Cucumber Crush, Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon. So take inventory now and start making those needed purchases earlier than later.
