Stampers Club Project

Hi Everyone!
Isn't this just the cutest little gift box! When I saw this on UStamp with Dawn and Friends, I knew I had to make one! This fab little project is courtesy of the fab Linda Hansen. For those of you who don't know who Linda is, she used to work for Stampin' Up creating awesome projects and coming up with wonderful tips that she shared with us Demonstrators that we could in turn share with you, our customers. Linda is a Creative Crew Girl with UStamp so we can still benefit from her talents with ink and paper.
Because this little box is super cute and easy to put together, I decided that it will be one of the projects we will be making at our Stampers Club meeting this coming weekend. I'm sure my girls are going to love this as much as I do! For this project I used Soft Suede card stock for the lid and the box form, pieces from the Christmas Cocoa Specialty designer series paper and the Delightful Decorations stamp set. The ribbon is from the Alpine Originals collection, this was from last year, but it's still available on the Clearance Rack. What?! Didn't know we had a clearance section? Click here and see what other great deals are there!

The lid of the box is Soft Suede card stock that was run through the Big Shot with the Top Note die and then embossed using the Petals-a-Plenty textured impressions folder. The ribbon goes under the box and through the sides of the lid and then ties on top. To get the ribbon through the lid, use a utility knife and make a slice the width of the ribbon on both sides. The tag is one of the Delightful Decorations stamped in Real Red ink and then punched out with the Ornament punch. The center is another of the stamps from the Delightful Decorations set, inked in Old Olive, punched out with the 3/4" punch and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. Then I punched a small hole in the top and threaded through some Gold Elastic Cord .
So that's my share for today. I'd love to hear what you think, so feel free to leave a comment. Thanks for stopping by.

Until then...

Happy Stampin'
