There are lots of these cute boxes floating around the net, but this is the first one I’ve made. And I made quite a few because they were one of my free gifts for my guests to my Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue launch, a couple went to my daughter’s school as gifts for the Mother’s Day stall, and one was a gift to my cousin for hosting a stamp-a-stack.
I made the box using Melon Mambo cardstock, which was embossed using the Big Shot with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and then cut out with the Top Note Die. The sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and was stamped in Melon Mambo. I punched a large oval from the leftover of the polka dot Melon Mambo cardstock and layered it onto Pink Pirouette textured cardstock, punched from the Scallop Oval punch. I finished off the box with a pink rhinestone brad and Pink Pirouette grosgrain ribbon.
This is a box I made for one of my lovely hostesses, as a thank you for arranging a stamp-a-stack at her home last month.
This scallop envelope box is a sneak peek of a few lovely products that will be available in the new Autumn/Winter Mini catalogue that starts on 1 April 2010. The box is made using the BIG SHOT (yeah! you too can purchase the Big Shot from Stampin’ Up after 1 April 2010!!). I’ve used the Stampin’ Up! Scallop Envelope Bigz Dies with the Big Shot to make this box. There is a yummy new In Color available from 1 April 2010 – Melon Mambo. And coordinating ribbon will be available too – don’t you love the polka dots? The sentiment has been also stamped in the new Melon Mambo ink.
How lovely is the sentiment? It’s from another Sale-a-bration stamp set, Whimiscal Words. I love the font too! Remember, you only have until 31 March to place your $100 or more order to receive a free Sale-a-bration stamp set!
This is the side on view of the box. The Designer Series Paper is from the current Summer Mini Catalogue. Doesn’t the Kaleidoscope DSP look great with Lovely Lilac and Melon Mambo?
This close up (below) shows off the elegant SU Filigree brads and rhinestone brads. My favourites!
Inside the box I have some yummy chocolates in a SU cellophane bag that I also stamped, using White Staz On ink and the new Dreams wheel. The new Dreams wheel will be available in the upcoming Autumn/Winter Mini on 1 April 2010.
