Stampin' Up! Playing With Patterns Gift Box by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Hello and welcome to part 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Playing With Patterns Suite Showcase. If you missed parts 1 and 2 you can find them here… part 1, part 2. Today I am sharing with you a Playing With Patterns Gift Box made using the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes which you can find on Page 152 of your 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.

In Parts 1 and 2 we have concentrated on the Pattern Play Stamp Set and Playful Alphabet Dies from the Suite. Today, we are adding in the Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper (DSP). This paper pack is just so bright and cheerful! It’s great for all ages and perfect for those who love pattern and colour.

Let’s take a look at today’s project…

Let’s make it…

Start by assembling your Mini Paper Pumpkin Box. The score lines are already there for you and you don’t need any adhesive for this bit.

The band is created from a piece of Purple Posy cardstock measuring 14 x 26.2 cm. The long edge is scored at 2.8, 12.6, 15.4 and 25.2 cm. Once I had folded and burnished the score lines, I applied Tear & Tape to the 1cm tab and adhered the band together.

With the band in place around the box, I adhered a piece of the DSP (measuring 13.5 x 9.3 cm) to the top.

The ‘Just For’ sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink onto Purple Posy cardstock and cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. The stamp is from the Meant To Be Stamp Set and I masked off the ‘you’ so that I could recreate that using the dies. The circle is adhered to the DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The ‘y’, ‘o’ and ‘u’ are cut out of DSP using the Playful Alphabet Dies. These are then adhered to Coastal Cabana cardstock circles cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. These are then adhered to the box using Foam Adhesive Strips.

The final touch is provided by a length of Purple Posy Ribbon from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack which I have tied around the finished box.
