I have an adorable treat/gift box to share with you today. Paired with the Little Debbie Unicorn Cakes, this box is a fun Valentine idea if you are looking for something to still share with your special loved ones. Don’t worry about owning all the products (although you could certainly expedite an order). You can apply the directions to cardstock, designer paper, and accents you already own.
Where did this inspiration come from? On January 30th, Nancy Forsberg & Kayla Cory from StampingBAE demonstrated how to make a cute box during our Stampers With ART team party. We all prepared our supplies ahead of time based on the list Nancy & Kayla shared. Then during the event these two showed us all step-by-step how to put their intended version of the project together. Good news!! Soon after they also shared publicly! Visit their February 1st blog post for photos, measurements, and their instructional video.
This is the one I created after their team party demonstration. And yep…I went out and bought those Little Debbie Unicorn Cakes, too! I used the supplies listed below. (These products I used are linked to where you can find them in my online store.)
- Berry Burst Cardstock
- 5-1/2” x 8-1/2″ scored parallel to the short side at 1-1/4″, 6-1/2″, and 7-3/4″ and then scored parallel to the long side at 1-1/4″, 2-1/2″, 3-3/4″, and 5″ (then cut and assembled according to the directions shared in Nancy & Kayla’s video)
- Delightful Floral Designer Paper
- (4) 1” x 5”
- (2) 1″ x 1″
- Basic White Cardstock
- 3/8” x 2-1/8”
- Scraps for stamping and die-cutting leaves and flowers
Watch Nancy & Kayla’s video for the instruction for the box. Then keep reading for the specific details for the one I made and shared here.
For my floral accents, I inked and stamped the two flowers onto the Basic White scrap paper (one with Calypso Coral ink, the other with Berry Burst ink). I inked the leaves with a combination of two inks. First I inked the stamps with Parakeet Party ink. Then I used a Dauber and added Pretty Peacock ink at the base of the leaf images. Then I exhaled on the inked stamps to remoisten the ink, and stamped the images onto more Basic White scrap paper.
After die-cutting the images, I curled these pieces a bit with the Bone Folder tool and attached them at the base of the box using Seal, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, and Dimensionals.
After stamping the sentiment with Berry Burst ink onto the Basic White strip, I trimmed the ends and added it to the box using Dimensionals.
Then I embellished with Iridescent Rhinestones.
Don’t forget to add the treat before gifting the box. Sweet idea. Right!?
I love my Precision Tip Glue Bottles! I’ve really found it much easier to add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to those intricate, detailed, and tiny pieces in my paper crafting projects now that I have some of that glue in these bottles.
Many of you have purchased these bottles using the link in My Favorite Extras. I’m glad you are also enjoying the ease they provide in paper crafting!
But occasionally I get the question…”How do you add the glue without it getting all over?” So I made this short tips video that I hope you will find useful.
