Forever Blossoms Mini Pizza Box.

Forever Blossoms Mini Pizza Box.

Today I have a gorgeous gift box to share with you. I’ve dressed up the Mini Pizza Boxes with the Forever Blossoms stamp set to make a soft, feminine gift box. Place some yummy chocolates or a few tea pouches inside and it makes a lovely gift.

To make this project you will need:

  • Mini Pizza Box
  • Whisper White cardstock
  • Champagne Foil
  • Sponge Brayer
  • Sponge Dauber

Start by adding Flirty Flamingo ink to the Mini Pizza Box using the Sponge Brayer. Do this BEFORE folding on any of the scored lines. You can add as much or as little ink as you like, and you can make it as even or rough a coating as you please. I stayed light on the ink, and wasn’t too fussy about having a even coating.

Fold the Mini Pizza Box on the scored lines.

Stamp the large flower image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set in Tuxedo Black Momento ink. Stamp the individual and the two leaf stamp three times each.

Sponge the centers of the flowers with Flirty Flamingo and Cherry Cobbler using the sponge daubers. Sponge the leaves with Pear Pizzazz, and add detail using the Light Old Olive Blends.

NOTE: Take the Flirty Flamingo sponging out into the petals a little bit, and keep the Cherry Cobbler sponging just in the center of the flower.

Die cut the flowers and place to the side.

Using the detailed shapes from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies cut the third die up from the smallest in Champagne Foil and the second die up from smallest in Whisper White cardstock.

Stamp the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler in the center of the Whisper White piece. Ink up the flower bud image using Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz ink pads or markers. Stamp this off twice, and then stamp over top of the sentiment.

Adhere this piece to the Champagne Foil piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Tie a length of Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon around the Mini Pizza Box and tie a large bow in the right-hand side of the lid.

Adhere the large flower to the lid on the left-hand side using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Be sure to place the Dimensionals where they will sit either side of the ribbon.

Adhere the sentiment piece in the center of the lid using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Again, be mindful of placement for the Dimensionals.

Finally, adhere the individual flowers to the sentiment piece using Glue Dots, and tuck the two-leaf images underneath the sentiment piece using Glue Dots.

June 8×8 Sampler Class.

Here I am catching up on blog posts!

June was a great sampler layout, with a fantastic product suite. The Follow Your Art suite is bright and colourful, and full of fun.

We had a full class, a first for the sampler class! Everyone had lots of fun putting their layout together. The image below is made up with three of the four ladies’ sampler pages in frames.

My favourite piece from the whole suite has to be the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit. The felt shapes with stitching are super cute, and will appeal to any kind of crafter! There is a sheet of die-cut shapes in four colours that coordinate with the designer series paper in the suite. Yet another instance of Stampin’ Up! helping to make projects easier!

The main technique we covered this month was sponging using the sponge brayers. Sponging is an easy way to introduce any colour to your project. Does this scenario sound familiar? You’ve started work on a card or other project. You have a Whisper White card base, a pack of designer series paper, but no coordinating coloured cardstock! I don’t know how many times this has happened to me. What’s a quick and easy solution? Sponge brayers! With a pack of sponge brayers, and Whisper White card stock, you can have cardstock in any colour you have in an ink pad. So convenient!

We stamped and die cut the images from the It Starts With Art bundle, and coloured them using Stampin’ Write Markers. A finishing touch was a strip of Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon with a knot tied in the middle.

Happy crafting!
