Good Morning Magnolia Gift Box

Each month I hold card classes in my home. We have lots of fun. I always have a door prize, usually something I’ve made. This month I am offering a Mini Pizza Box. The box is  adorned with a flower made with the Good Morning Magnolia Bundle.

Inside the box? Candy of course! But you could use these boxes for so many things: candy, jewelry, a gift card.

 

Design Notes for Good Morning Magnolia Box:

I wish that I could say that I figured out how to make the flower all by myself. But it wasn’t that hard! I’ve added a video that Stampin’ Up made showing exactly how to make the flowers.

Well, I did not make the box. It’s one of the really cute Mini Pizza boxes that you can order. I did add a strip of Petal Pink card stock around the box. Then, I adhered the flower with some Tear & Tape and a bit of the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon. Easy, right?

Floral Phrases Farewell

The Floral Phrases stamp set and Detailed Floral Thinlits have been in the catalog for a few years. It was pretty predictable that this year they would retire. Nonetheless, I am sad to see them go. Such lovely detail and interest. I decided to use the Thinlits for this month’s card class door prize. I also made this month’s thank you card using the Floral Phrases stamp set.

tThe card is actually CASed (Copy and share) from a recent post by Candy Rattray. I just loved it and had to make my own.

 

 

Design Notes for Floral Phrases Card and Box:

The box is just like one I made last week. Did you see my post about attending the tea and the favors I made? Check out my post here to see what I made and the tutorial for the treat box.

Here’s a close up of the box I made for my classes. I think the ribbon to close it is so pretty. The silver edge on the ribbon goes so nicely with the Silver Foil Paper behind the cut out.

Tea Together Treats

Yesterday I went to a lovely tea. It was a fund raiser for a group my BFF is involved with. In addition to tea and lovely treats, there was a terrific a capella group. All in all, a lovely afternoon. Of course, I wanted to make some treats for everyone at the table and created these little boxes. I used the Tea Together stamp set from the Occasions catalog.

The box held three Ghirardelli chocolates.

Design Notes for Tea Together Treat Box:

It’s never a bad day when I get to use my Stampin’ Blends markers. The tea cups and flowers were stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink then colored in with the Blends. The Framelits made them easy to cut out. I used some Old Olive card stock to make a belly band around the little container I made.

The box was really easy. Here are the measurements and directions if you’d like to make one.

  • Cut card stock to 4 1/2″ x 7 1/2″

treat box, Tea Together, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

  • Score along long side at 2″, 2 3/4″, 4 3/4″ and 5 1/2″.

  • Score along short side at 3/4″ and 3 1/2″. (3/4″ from each side.)

  • Fold on score lines.
  • Cut as shown below, red lines indicate cutting.

  • If you want to add Designer Paper use two pieces cut 2″ x 3″ and one piece cut 3/4″ x 3″ (Cut slightly smaller if you want a little card stock to show. )
  • Adhere Designer paper.
  • Use Tear & Tape to hold box together.
  • Create a belly band from 1″ x 8 1/2″ piece of card stock.
  • Decorate as you wish.

The stamp set and Framelits I used will carry over to the new catalog. However, the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is going to retire. Be sure to add some to your order.

Easter Treats with Fable Friends

Each month I hold four card classes at various times and days. From time to time, I like to spoil my friends who faithfully attend and, I think, enjoy class. This month I made a little treat for everyone to celebrate spring and Easter. The sentiment from Fable Friends made it easy and cute!

I only used a sentiment from the Fable Friends stamp set, but you should look at this adorable set of images.

Design Notes for Fable Friends Treats:

Oh gosh. these were easy. I picked three colors and stamped some of the sort of sunburst image on Whisper White.

A little Tear & Tape to hold everything together and they were done. Here’s a look at all of them!

Note Card Box with All Things Thanks

I have an event coming up and have been thinking about a little hostess gift. The other morning I saw a video from Ronda Wade where she created a darling note card box from one sheet of card stock. Love at first sight! And an answer to my query.

Isn’t this so cute?

 

Design Notes for Note Card Box:

First things first. You have to have a Stampin’ Trimmer or Simply Scored Board to make this box. There is a fair amount of scoring for this. Here are my scoring/cutting samples.

Note Card Box, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Note Card Box, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com(Sorry, not sure why I turned the paper after I added the cutting lines.)

I added some Tear & Tape as indicated.

Note Card Box, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

Just fold the sides over, and then adhere with the Tear & Tape. I added Designer Paper before I assembled but it really doesn’t matter. It’s easy to add after you assemble the box.

Note Card Box, All things Thanks stamp set, heat embossing, Floral Romance Designer Series Paper, Tea Room Ribbon Combo, Stampin' Up!, diannescards.com

The decorative part was fun. You know how I love to heat emboss and used this as an opportunity to dig out some copper accents. The ribbon is from the Tea Room suite and the edge of copper was just too perfect. One option for the box is to wrap the ribbon around and then untie it to open it. I did tie the ribbon around but put a glue dot under the bow. Then all the recipient has to do is pull the ribbon off from the back, without untieing.

You can see the ribbon here.
