EDITED NOTE: I just realized that this didn’t post yesterday, as I thought it had……….so now there are 2 posts for today! Sorry! But make sure you read this one titled “New Month, New Stuff”.
I found this idea a few months ago……..couldn’t wait to try it out! I just got busier and busier over the summer and it came back to mind this morning. I hope you like it……..I thought we might do this for one of our September Club projects. I usually keep the projects a “secret” until the night of club, but I was so excited with how cute this turned out that I wanted to go ahead and show you. Since I was only working on “samples” to test out the pattern, I used some retired paper that I didn’t mind wasting…….you know, just in case I messed it all up! However, it turned out really cute and it was super fast and easy. This die was originally designed as a card template. The opening piece is magnetic and can be moved around to put the opening in your desired spot. Stampin’ Up! also sells additional shapes that make this template even more versatile! I am so thankful for creative demonstrators who come up with ideas like this! Who would have thought to make a box from a card……..not me!
Both samples were made with Slumber Party Specialty Paper. This paper is ideal because it is the heavier weight cardstock, rather than the thinner Designer Series Paper. It is my preference to use cardstock or Specialty Paper (cardstock weight printed paper) on any of our boxes or 3D items. The thinner paper is pretty, but not quite as functional. I will include the scoring and folding instructions in tomorrow’s post. Thanks to Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Janet Wakeland for this fun idea! And thanks for sharing it with all of us!
Can you believe this???
This is my precious little girl who used to have bows in her hair every second of the day! And this is her today……..proudly displaying her new HUNTING VEST and HUNTING LICENSE! As if getting a Driver’s License wasn’t bad enough……….now this! I knew I should have run that boyfriend off a long time ago!!! Just kidding……..but seriously……..can you believe this???
