May I please share one last Halloween idea using the Stampin’ Up! Candy Wrapper die? This “BOO” box trio and card are headed to my adorable nephew as a spooky surprise. Each contains a couple bite sized candy bars.
LET’S TWIST! The question I have been asked the most about the Stampin’ Up! Candy Wrapper Die is regarding assembly. Is it complicated? I have made several dozen of these boxes and can assure you that once you figure it out, they go quickly. The trick is in the “twist” and today’s Stampin’ Pretty 1 Minute to WOW! Video shows you how!
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- The Typeset Alphabet Dies cut through card stock and Stampin’ Up! Onboard Long Board (chipboard). Perfect layers and a 3-D effect.
- I cut the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper (wrapped around each box) to 6 1/4″ x 1 3/4″. Using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, I scored the short distance at 1 3/8″, 2 3/4″, 4 1/8″ AND 5 5/8″ for a neat fit and a “seam” buried on an edge. The reason why the last score goes an 1/8″ longer than the others is so that it can “stretch” to the edge.
- The coordinating envelope for my 3 x 3 card was created using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Simply Scored Diagonal Plate. Here’s my handy envelope chart with dimensions and details for many envelope sizes.
