Notecards and Box

This past Tuesday night I held my Intro to Stamping class, and I wanted to share one of the 3 projects everyone created. We used the “A Flower for All Seasons” stamp set–thanks Stampin’ Up! for the set! It was one that I received free at Convention this year for an award. Hooray for free stamps!!

The 4 cards are 3×6″ Whisper White cardstock folded in half. The little pieces of Patterns Designer Series Paper were 1.5×3″ until we punched one edge with the Scallop Edge Punch (hands-down my favorite new punch!!). Then we stamped the image in ink to match the PDSP– Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Riding Hood Red, and Pink Pirouette.

The box is a modified 2-4-6-8 box, if you know how those work. I started with a piece of cardstock 4×8.5″ and scored it at 1, 4, 5 and 8″, then turned it 90 degrees and scored 1″ from the bottom the long way. Cut the little rectangle corner out, and cut 1″ along the score lines up to the long score line. (this makes total sense if you try it and see it 🙂 Then fold the score lines and assemble your box!

I used a 3/4″ Circle Punch to finish up the front of the box and the new 1-3/4″ Circle Punch to put the circle piece on the front. We watercolored with the Blender Pens and Stampin’ Pastels–of course items from the “I Want It All” kit 🙂

And of course a little Library Clip to finish it off–so cute!!
