Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator.
Today, on this very first day of the availability of the Holiday Catalog, I would like to share with you a gift box that I made using the *Snowflake Splendor Suite (Item #155115)
Snowflake Splendor Suite
Pacific Point Classic Ink
Stampin’ Seal +
Balmy Blue Cardstock
Whisper White Cardstock
DSP (2 Pieces) 4 3/4″×3 1/2″
DSP (2pieces) 1 1/4″×4 3/4″
Score 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock on the Landscape (long side) Side at 1 1/2″, 5 1/4″, 6 3/4″ and 10 1/2″
Rotate to Portrait (short side) and score at 1 1/2″ and 6 1/2″
Remove small rectangle from the 1/2″ at both ends.
Cut up to the scorelines and wedge your squares but leave your rectangles in tact.
Fold and burnish all of your score lines using your Bone Folder.
Using your Stampin’ Seal + fold and seal your ends but leave the top open. The Snowflake Splendor Ribbon will actually close and secure your box.
Using your die cutting machine run your Dies through your machine with scraps of Whisper White Cardstock and the Balmy Blue Glitter Paper provided in the Suite.
This is where I used the Adhesive Sheets.
I stamped the “Snowflake Wishes” sentiment in Pacific Point Ink, adhered the Balmy Blue Glitter tag to the front and fussy cut around it.
I placed and adhered down the individual die cut snowflakes. I popped the tag up using Stampin’ Dimensionals and popped that stinker right to the front of the box.
I wrapped the Snowflake Splendor Ribbon around the box and tied a bow. Using my Take Your Pick Tool, I placed three of the Blue Adhesive Backed Gems.
The inspiration for this project came after watching Sam Hammond’s aka Pootles Crafts out of the UK. If I’m not explaining how to do this box correctly Sam has an outstanding tutorial video making the same box using the Coming Home Suite. Sam, if you ever have a chance to read this Thank You for your inspiration for this project.
