This is the project we did at the April Stamp Club that we hold here in Midland, Texas.


Blackberry Bliss Card stock

Butterflies Thinlits Dies

Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon

Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper

Painted Petals Stamp Set

Whisper White Card Stock

Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon

Pink Pirouette Card Stock

Soft Sky Card Stock

White Satin Ribbon


Tag Topper Punch


Stationary Box : Bottom is made with Blackberry Bliss Card stock cut at 8 1/2 x 9 3/4 Score at 2 inches all the way around.



Top of the box is made using Painted Blooms DSP.  Cut at 8 9/16 ( it’s the first line after the 8 1/2) x 9 13/16  ( the first line after 9 3/4 ) In short, all I did was increase the top paper by 1/16 for my cuts.  Score your DSP like you did the card stock for the bottom on the 2 inch line.  Make sure the pattern you want for your top is facing down on the score board.

On the top and bottom sections of your box you will want to cut the tabs on the score marks with the longest inside dimentions going up and down. Cut both as shown here: DSCN4412


Add double sided tape or tombo glue to your tabs and fold in.  Do this to both your top and bottom.  Your box is now ready to embellish.  I used the Butterfly thinlits and some ribbon on mine.   This box with hold A2 Cards and envelopes.  Depending on how they are embellished you can fit up to 10 in this size box.  DSCN4413


For the Cards I used a combination of the same DSP pack and the Painted Petals stamp set.  For the pink card I used Connie Stewarts Flash Card Cuts.  The DSP cards I cut the DSP at 5 1/4 x 4 and just selected my favorite sections and added a stamp.  You can stamp and embellish these cards any way you like.  Basic cuts for the card base 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.   For the card with the blue tag I used the tag topper and punched both sides and then put the ribbon behind it allowing it to slide to either side. If you want it to stay in one place you can put a little glue dot behind it.



I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did.
