I made this cute little box and cards for a recent swap. I am sure you will love them, too.
Supplies: Stampin' Up Red Cardstock
DSP Paper of choice
Red button (with shank)
Stampin Up stamps (tiny
flower and sentiment of
Embosslit flower die
White copy paper
Scallop edge punch
Ink: red & pink
For the Box: Cut red cardstock 7 1/2" square, score at 2" on all sides. Cut up to score lines on
2 opposing sides. Using sticky strip, fold sides up to create box.
For the top: Cut pink cardstock 5 5/8" square, score at 1" on all sides. Again, cut up to score lines on 2 opposing sides. Use scallop punch to scallop all 4 sides. Cut diagonal across corners. Fold sides to create top. Adhere with sticky strip.
Decorate Top. Cut red cardstock square 3 1/2", pink square 3 1/4", DSP square 3".
Centre and layer them. Adhere with snail to top of box.
Cut or punch red hearts (4) each 1 1/4", pink hearts (4) each 1", DSP hearts (4) each 3/4".
Layer one of each colour and glue together. Score down the centre. Repeat with each set.
Cut or punch 1" circle of red. Attach the 4 heart sandwiches around the circle meeting in centre.
Glue with a glue dot or glue the button in the centre of heart flower.
Attach to box top with dimensionals.
(I used red ink and sponged around the edges of the box.
Card: Cut pink cardstock 3" by 6", score at 3" mark.
Using scallop punch, decorate edge. Sponge red ink on the scallop.
Using Big Shot and Embosslit, cut a flower from DSP.
Pierce hole in centre. Insert pink brad.
Stamp sentiment in red at edge near scallop.
Using dimensionals, attach flower.
Envelope: I used copy paper, Cricut and Walk In My Garden cartridge. You can find envelope templates in the internet.
Make envelope, glue together.
Stamp tiny flowers on edge of envelope.
Assemble Package: Tie a pretty ribbon around the four cards. Place envelopes and card pouch in box. Put top on and, voila, you are done.
Simple but sweet.
