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 from Joshua,TX.
Today, I’d like to share with you these precious Mini Treat Boxes created with the Springtime Joy Stamp Set and just a few other goodies from my craft stash.
At the start of this project I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do. I had a vision in my head of using the bunnies from the Springtime Joy Stamp Set, the Mini Treat Boxes and the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper but that was it.
During my time in design on this project two major things happened; The Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper sold out in lightning speed and Stampin’ Up announced the Annual Catalog Retirement List.
This is a great project for anyone who was lucky enough to already have the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper in their stash. If you were one of the many unfortunate people who weren’t able to get it before it sold out, Stampin’ Up still has many great alternative papers including the Subtles DSP, Love You Always DSP or even the Love You Always DSSP.
Cardstock – For these four boxes I used So Saffron, Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron and scraps of Basic White for stamping.
Stampin’ Blend Markers Light Calypso Coral, Light So Saffron, Light Bermuda Bay, Light Misty Moonlight, Light and Dark Cinnamon Cider and Dark Mint Macaron, Dark Petal Pink, Color Lifter
Ribbons – I used the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon, Pool Party Sheer Ribbon and Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon
Springtime Joy Stamp Set
Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper or alternates already discussed
Clear Mini Treat Boxes
Layering Squares Dies
Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
Clear Block D
Tear and Tape
Multipurpose Liquid Glue
There’s really only one measurement that you need and it’s a piece of Cardstock measuring 2″×8 1/4″
Assemble your box (no adhesive required) and wrap the Cardstock around the box pinching it at the corners.
Add Tear and Tape to the 1/4″ piece and adhere together.
Die cut squares of DSP and adhere them to the sides of the box using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Add candy (I used Starburst Jellybeans because they’re awesome!) in the box and close the top of the box.
Cut off a fair amount of ribbon, lay it under the Mini Treat Box and tie a knot.
There’s nothing that says that it’s Easter more than a chocolate bunny. To create her, I stamped her in Momento Black Ink and colored her in with the Stampin’ Blend Markers. I used the Color Lifter in the cheek area and added some Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to give her some character.
I fussy cut the chocolate bunny out with a pair of snips and added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of her and stuck her directly to the front of the box.
Within minutes you have an absolutely precious gift to someone or many special someone’s in your life.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and will join me again for another edition.
