I hope you are enjoying the New 2013-14 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue Blog Hop so far ! If you are following the hop right from the start you will have just come from Jenny Humphreys lovely blog …. if you are starting here that is fine too you will still get around to everyone by following the links below!
So what to share with you for this hop??? I was so unsure about which beautiful new product(s) to share for this blog hop, I made a LOAD of projects and finally settled on a super super super fun Folded Gift Box that I have made using some of the gorgeous new Designer Series Paper in the catalogue. I also use my FAVOURITE bundle in the catalogue: Label Love which is a fantastic Stamp Set and coordinating Artisan Label Punch for only $54.25 let me tell you this is one bundle that you are going to absolutely 100% NEED!
Anyway here are some of the gift boxes.
This is some of the stunning Modern Medley DSP with a Label Love tag finished with a Very Vintage Designer Button. These gift boxes hold a good sized gift, in fact our Stampin’ Up! watches fit in perfectly!
Here is one with the sweet Gingham Garden DSP, again using the Artisan Label Punch as the label and this time decorating it with some beautiful clay flowers (these were coloured by mixing a little re-inker with crystal effects!)
This final one is made using the Epic Day This and That DSP and is my ‘male’ spin on the box, again with a Label Love tag to finish it off!
So how did I make this box? Well I didn’t come up with this one I found a set of instructions by Susanne Draheim but they were in German (at least I think they are *blush*) but I still really wanted to make this gift box so set about working out how to make them using Susanne’s instructions as a starting point (thank goodness numbers are a universal language!). [NB: Suzanne’s original tutorial is no longer available]. So after I worked out how to make them I thought I would put a video together to share her beautiful (and easy) gift box with you. Here is the video ….
