Birthday Box Fun…

So, my birthday was last week, and decided to spend a quiet day doing one of my favourite things – making boxes!  I love making boxes, as regular blog visitors will know.  Plus, now I have my Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board, making boxes can be really quick and simple.  I whipped up this one in no time:

  • The box is made from Naturals Composition DSP.  This is perfect for box making as it’s really thick – card really, not paper. I can’t believe I hadn’t realised how great it was!
  • This box is a fabulous size – 5″ x 5″ x 4″!
  • I’m loving this Tartan pattern in the Season of Style DSP pack – bang on trend.

  • A great bow using the Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain ribbon – very festive.
  • I’ve used a the Be Merry Single Stamp for my tag, die cutting it with a coordinating Chalk Talk die.

  • The box is very simple to create – just take a piece of 12″ x 12″ cardstock or DSP.  Place into your punch board at 4″ and punch and score.  Turn and repeat on all 4 sides of the card.  Now flip the card over and repeat from the other side – this should mean that each side has 2 notches punched (4″ and 8″) and scored. Now simply fold on the scores, cut down one side of the inner score line so you can fold up into a box. Stick together.  Now close the 4 envelope flaps in for a lid.  Let me know if you’d like a tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by today, come back for more soon – I took loads of photos yesterday so I have lots to share!
