I’m slowly coming to terms with the upcoming loss of the 2017-2019 In Colors and have been using them quite a lot as a final farewell. I wanted to make a little box for my desk to hold some Gold Library Clips and decided to use Berry Burst so that it can stay with me a little bit longer, lol
I love the Dot to Dot embossing folder that is also retiring soon so it came out to play too. As you’ll see I added a window so that I’d remember what was inside the box and remember to use them up; as the library clips are retiring too!
I used a piece of Berry Burst card measuring 7 by 7 & 1/2 inches. I scored on the long side at 1 & 3/4 inches, 3 & 1/2 inches, 5 & 1/4 inches and 7 inches. On the short side I scored at 1 & 3/4 inches, 4 & 3/4 inches and 6 & 1/4 inches. Back on the long side I scored down to the first horizontal score line at 2 & 5/8 inches and 6 & 1/4 inches; I used these lines to make diagonal score lines to the second horizontal score line.
I used a Stitched Rectangle die to cut out the window from the front panel and then used the Dot to Dot embossing folder to add texture to all sides of the box.
Now, you don’t have to use this box for stationery items you could fill it with sweeties and add a tag, something like this…
I used the Everyday Label punch on Whisper White card and used the Detailed Trio punch to make the slot for the Polka Dot ribbon. The stamps I used are all from Detailed With Love and I used Berry Burst ink.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and will have a go at making it yourself. I’ve listed all of the products I’ve used below and you can click on any of the links to visit my online Stampin’ Up! shop.
