Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop. We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects from the new Stampin’ Up ® Spring/Summer catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of the blog to keep hopping!
This is is my first Pinkies Hop so I do hope you enjoy. I haven’t included a video but am happy to do so if you would like, just message me and I’ll post one later.
So today’s project uses the lovely It’s my Party range to create an open flat gift box to hold a nail varnish.
The stamp set is Party Wishes (140961) and the fabulous mini punch set Party Punch Pack (140608). I’ve used the co-ordinating 48 sheet Designer Series Paper (DSP) (140552) which is 12×12 and every sheet is double sided! Finally a piece of Bakers Twine which is in a combo pack of mint Macaron and Melon Mambo (140555). Melon Mambo has been used as the box base, with Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron and Crushed Curry inks for the stamped balloons. The new stamps to go with the punches are larger than the punch, so no more white outlines!
The box is made from a piece of 8″ X 8″ card scored at 3 inches on all 4 sides. Score the 4 corners diagonally from the outer corners and cut off the excess as shown below.
Cut 2 panels of DSP and 2 panels of whisper white 1-7/8 X 2-3/4
The lid is made from a 5-1/8 square of card. Score at 3/4 and at 1-1/2, on all 4. Trim the outside 3 squares from each corner and crease diagonals as shown. Fold box lid up, tucking the scored and folded flaps inside.
Cut DSP 2×2 for top and 4 pieces 2 X 5/8 for the sides of the lid
For the base cut a square 2-7/8 X 2-7/8″ and score at 1/2 inch on all 4 sides. Use the 1-1/4 scallop punch to punch a hole in the centre.
