Hello, and welcome to part 3 of the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Showcase. In part 2 we looked at handmade cards (you can find the blog here) and this week we will be making 3D projects using the stamp set and coordinating products from the All My Love suite. Again there will be examples for beginner, casual and avid crafters so, no matter what your level of experience and size of your craft stash, there’s something for everyone. If you don’t have any experience making gift bags or boxes, or don’t have the tools you need, don’t worry! Stampin’ Up! make it super simple with their choice of pre-cut, pre-scored boxes which you just need to fold to assemble. They will really add that little extra touch to your gifts.
If you don’t have any experience making gift bags or boxes, or don’t have the tools you need, don’t worry! Stampin’ Up! make it super simple with their choice of pre-cut, pre-scored boxes which you just need to fold to assemble. They will really add that little extra touch to your gifts.
The project for beginners uses only the Stampin’ Up! Mini Pizza Boxes, cardstock, stamps and ink and so is really simple to make but gives a great alternative to wrapping sweet treats and other small gifts. The colour scheme for this project is Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White. Having assembled the box a used piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock to create a border and then stamped the hearts and sentiment onto a slightly smaller piece of Whisper White cardstock. This monochrome look is simple and stylish and even awkwardly shaped gifts will be packaged perfectly.
The project for casual crafters adds in the use of the coordinating dies (Lovely Flowers Edgelits) and uses the Stampin’ Up! Kraft Pillow Box. I’ve turned mine into a cute little bag by using an oval die to cut out a handle! Lovely layers have been created using circle and starburst punches in Whisper White, Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam. The flower is stamped in Lovely Lipstick onto Whisper White card and the leaves have been stamped in Soft Sea Foam onto Whisper White card and cut out using the coordinating dies. Extra foliage has also been cut out of Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lipstick and cut out using the Classic Label punch. All of the elements have been adhered with either Multipurpose adhesive or dimensionals to give a beautiful layered effect. These boxes (or bags if you cut out the handle) will add a stylist finish to any small gift.
The avid crafter project uses the Stampin’ Up! Lustrous White Mini Gable Boxes as well as the All My Love coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) and embellishments (ribbon and Heart Epoxy Droplets). Once I had assembled the box, I cut a piece of DSP and adhered it to the front of the box. I then attached a length of Lovely Lipstick ribbon around the box. Pieces of DSP were cut out using circle punches and layered together to add interest. The sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Everyday Label punch. For the finishing touch I have coloured three of the Heart Epoxy Droplets using Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends and adhered them to the sentiment piece. These gable boxes look stunning and would be great for wedding favours or small gifts.
