Here is a photo of the intended project from this month’s kit – 12 stunning note cards: 3 each of 4 designs inspired by Stampin’ Up!’s own cofounder, Shelli Gardner.

The May 2019 Hugs From Shelli Pumpkin kit. #onestopbox #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I shared a 12×12 scrapbook page layout and how to double the cards in your kit just by adding a pack of Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes on May 21st. And my son, Nick and I shared a couple more cards with this kit yesterday.

Today I have a sweet gift box made from one of the note cards and a gratitude book made from eight pretty kit envelopes.

Both of these are super easy to make and only require a few extra tools and supplies.

GIFT BOX

Products I used… See below for a complete list of extra products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements for the box…

  • Blue note card from the kit
  • Pretty Peacock velvet ribbon from the kit
    • About 10″

Directions…

Position the open blue note card (print side up) horizontally with the solid blue to the right and the printed blue to the left. Then score vertically at 1/2″, 2″, 3-1/2″ (the score line already there), and 5″. Then trim off the last 1/2″ (at the 6-1/2″ mark). Now rotate a quarter turn to the note card is vertical and score 1-1/2″ in from each side. With the floral print up, cut along the bottom three horizonal score line on each side up to the vertical score lines. The cover of the box will be formed by the portion above the last cuts. So reduce the sides by one inch. Then trim from the top down the small vertical score lines just to the the horizonal score line. Angle cut the sides of the two outer tabs.

Bring the bottom sides of the box together and adhere. Then bring the top tabs in to connect to the front flap to create to cover/lid. Do the adhering of the cover/lid with Glue Dots with the box is in a closed position.

Fill with treats. And add a bow.

I made my bow by following the directions in this video and wrapping it around my two fingers. This way I was able to keep only the velvet side of he ribbon showing. 😊

GRATITUDE BOOK

Products I used… See below for a complete list of extra products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements for the book…

  • 8 envelopes from the kit (2 of each print)
  • Early Espresso Cardstock
    • 7 pieces that are 4-1/4″ x 2-3/4″
  • Pretty Peacock velvet ribbon from the kit
    • About 16″

Directions…

Fold the envelope flaps the opposite way…backward. Connect the envelopes initially by sliding the flap of one into the inside of another and make sure they are all in the order you want them. Then secure all the envelopes in place by undoing one at a time, adding a strip of adhesive (or glue dots from the kit), and reconnecting.
