A Good Day!
Today’s project is an adorable candy box that anyone would love to receive for Valentine’s Day, or any occasion for that matter, using some great products from the Occasions Catalog…namely, A Good Day stamp set!
If the “A Good Day” stamp set from the Occasions Catalog isn’t already on your wish list, it would be a great one to add. It has the most adorable images…and so perfect to punch out with the Scallop Circle Punches for a quick addition or main focus to a card. It would make a great $50 bundle, and then you can take advantage of a Sale-A-Bration level 1 FREEBIE!
In case you’re wondering how the “Just for you” sentiment words are in black, but the pointed fringe is Melon Mambo, just stamp the sentiment on two separate pieces of Whisper White; one in Memento and one in Melon Mambo. Now, you’ll punch the Memento one out with the 1″ circle punch and then the Melon Mambo one gets punched using the 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch. Layer one on the other and you’ve accomplished the two-tone look! Add a little more pop by running a gold sheet through the Big Shot using 1-3/4″ layering circle framelits and layer the sentiments on top using dimensionals.
Now let’s take a look at how the box was made. I’ll take you step-by-step with pictures so hopefully you can go straight to your craft room and create one yourself!
First, you’ll need 2 pieces of Melon Mambo cardstock; one cut to 6-1/2″ x 11″ and the other cut at 2-5/8″ x 4-1/2″. Cut off the two 5/8″ pieces and the 1/4″ x 5/8″ on the opposite corners as shown.
Next, Make a mark with a pencil 2″ down from the top. Align the Painted With Love DSP at the top of this piece.
Using your Stampin’ Trimmer, align the 2 from the score line to the 2″ mark along the groove of the Trimmer as shown. Cut off the wedge.
Now, adhere 1-3/8 x 5-1/8 to the second panel as shown.
Next, you need to cut a window out leaving a 1/4″ frame around the cut. Do this by using the Trimmer and aligning on the 1/4″ mark (on the right side) and cut 1/4″ down and stop 1/4″ from the DSP end.
Adhere tear tape to inside of frame and adhere window sheet.
Next, we close the wedge flap. This makes the pocket for the card. Adhere the “box” right at the 4-1/2″ score line and then close one end with adhesive.
Next, if you haven’t already eaten all the chocolate while making your fun box, wrap 5 chocolate nuggets with 1″ x 3-1/5″ strips of DSP and insert into the box and then close up the other end.
Finally, punch a hole in the top of the card and finish off with Powder Pink Shimmer ribbon and bow.
Hope this inspires you to try something new if you haven’t made something like this before!
