For this hop I had the pleasure of creating with all the goodies from the ‘Gotta have it all bundle’ and I can tell you it is just G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!
I have made a box complete with 4 ‘Happy Birthday’ and 4 ‘Just a Note’ cards plus a coordinating mini gift bag. I have made this with my Nan in mind and will be sending this to her as gift which she could use and then perhaps re-purpose the gift box to keep notes or cards sent to her.
All the papers are just so pretty I had a tough time picking out one for the lid but in the end went with this one to match with the Mint Macaron Base. I also love that they are just slightly thicker than normal DSP so really nice a sturdy for 3D projects.
The base of the box is a full sheet of A4 and I have cut the Designer Series Paper (DSP) to A4 size too. This is a very simple box to make, the base has been scored at 7/8″ on all four side and the lid has been scored at 3/4″ on all four sides. I have then cut all the tabs and brought the box together with the tabs on the inside the box and lid. The inside divider is 6-1/2″ long x 3″ wide – scored on the long edge at 1/2′, 1-1/2″ & 2-1/2″.
The belly-band was two 1″ strips of A4 Rich Razzleberry joined together and wrapped around the box. I have creased as I folded round the box but you could measure and add score lines if you wanted a more precise finish.
For the birthday cards I have kept to the same design but changed up the DSP and coloured bases which coordinate with the papers. The Pearlized Doilies are beautiful but I wanted the colour to match. So achieve this look I have used the reverse side as this is less shiny and inked up using a sponge brayer. I have added these on to the scallop die cut from the Layering Circle Framelits . The Lovely Floral Embossing Folder also comes as a part of this bundle and as you will see I have added this to pretty much everything LOL
The note cards were quick and easy to make. The bit that took the longest time was stamping out the words, but once I had the letters mounted up onto blocks I was able to stamp out multiples fairly quickly. I have first embossed the background layer (3-3/8″ x 4-7/8″), then cut strips of the DSP (1″ x 3-3/8″) for each card. I have used the 1-1/2″ circle punch for the colour cardstock layers (Rich Razzleberry, Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron, and Old Olive). The ‘Just’ is cut out from the words ‘Handcrafted just for you’ and the ‘a note’ was stamped in individual letters. I stamped out the ‘a note’, added the ‘just’ & then punched out with the 1-1/4″ circle punch.
All the sentiment circles have been layered on the the cardstock and popped up with a few dimensionals. To complete these cards I have used the mini paper clips from the embellishment kit and tied on a bow with the twine.
To complete my gift box I want to add a sweet little coordinating gift bag, this was made on the gift bag punch board – do you have a gift bag punch board? It’s not something I use every day, but so handy to coordinate your gift and card. The Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon is perfect for handles.
I have punched holes on the side of the bag and ties the handles inside the bag with knots.
