Stampin’ Up! Sweet Shop Gift Box Video

Stampin up video tutorial occasions mini catalog sweet shop window sheet big shot box
When my dear friend and talented fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Kadie Labadie, created this adorable window sheet gift box at our November SW Stampers meeting, I knew I had to give it a try for our December Christmas swap.  She tells me she got the original idea from demonstrator Laurie Zoellmer's Stampin' Nut Blog

My version includes oodles of sneak peeks from the Occasions Mini Catalog (starts Jan. 4, 2012).  I thought it might be fun to walk you through a new product reveal with a video.  Measurements and scoring instructions are below.



Bottom Box:  Cut card stock or DSP to 10 1/4" x 5 1/4".  Score at 1/2" and 1" on all four sides.  You'll need to cut tabs, fold in and adhere to shape the box.
Insert for Bottom Box:  Cut card stock to 3" x 10".  Score at 3 1/4", 3 3/4" and 4 1/4"
Clear Window Sheet Cover:  Cut window sheet to 8 1/4" x 8 1/2".  With the 8 1/2" side at the top of your Simply Scored Tool, score at 1/2", 3 7/8", 4 1/2" and 7 7/8"

STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:  Scoring the Window Sheet with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool will leave a line and crease–not a defined score.  You'll need to fold it further manually to shape the sides.

The tiny hearts on the envelope flaps were created using the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  The big cake sticker is from Sweet Shop Designer Stickers.  Very chic and both are available Jan. 4 in the Occasions Mini Catalog.
