Pals Blog Hop : Snowflake Showcase Pillow Box

Pals Blog Hop October 2018

Welcome to the November 2018 Blog Hop with Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Holiday cards are done. It’s time to start on gifts and gift wrap. Let the Stampin’ Pretty Pals inspire you with “Anything But A Card” today.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Create a Pillow Box with the Snowflake Showcase Suite Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Start with a Stampin’ Up! Kraft Pillow Box.  I love the pre-printed polka dots!  Adhere sides with Tear & Tape Adhesive for added 3-D hold.  The ends simply fold in (no adhesive needed).

Create a belly band of Coastal Cabana card stock.  Cut card stock to 1 1/2 X 7 and bend around pillow box, adhering with Tear & Tape Adhesive in front (where it won’t show below the layers and keeps the back clean).

Crop Whisper White card stock with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Precision Base Plate, largest snowflake die and coordinating die cut flower from Stampin’ Up! Snowfall Thinlits Dies.  Learn more here about the Snowflake Showcase Limited Release products.  Adhere die cuts to each other and the belly band using Snail Adhesive.

Wrap the width of the pillow box with Whisper White 5/8 Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  Tie in a knot.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus stamp positioning tool, stamp “for you” from Snow is Glistening Photopolymer Stamp Set (Snowflake Showcase Limited Release Products) in Coastal Cabana ink on Whisper White card stock.  Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and coordinating die from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  Add a small hole on the left side with a 1/16 Handheld Circle Punch (retired) or Paper Piercing Tool to create a tag.

Thread tag hole with approximately 8″ of Linen Thread.  Wrap the width of the pillow box twice with approximately 20″ of Linen Thread.  Create four loops and tie together and in a bow with the linen thread of the tag.

Use a Stampin’ Dimensional below the “for you” tag to keep it in place.

WOW! Video: Takeout Treat Box

In yesterday’s post here, I shared a sweet Halloween Takeout Treat Box.  My WOW! video above offers tips, product possibilities and a demonstration for the Stampin’ Up! Takeout Treats stamp set and coordinating Takeout Thinlits Dies.  I used them to make yesterday’s takeout box as well as the one I created below.

Create a simple treat box using Stampin Up Takeout Treats & Takeout Thinlits Dies - Mary Fish StampinUp Halloween STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Crop the bat pattern from Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper twice with the takeout box die from Takeout Thinlits Dies and the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.   These boxes are simple to assemble because the dies both cut and set score lines during their journey through the Big Shot.

Fold and score tab lines of the box with a Bone Folder.  Assemble box and adhere the two pieces using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  It’s fabulous for 3-D projects.

Crop the octagonal tag from Takeout Thinlits Dies using Gorgeous Grape card stock and the Big Shot.  TIP:  The octagonal tag from Takeout Thinlits Dies acts as my foundation for all the “decor” on top.  Everything is attached to it and the whole thing (including ribbon) slides off and on (like a belly band) for access to the box.  

Crop Black Foil card stock with the flagged banner die from Takeout Thinlits Dies.  The shiny finish of the Black Foil card stock reminds me of patent leather.  Set folds with a Bone Folder and adhere flagged ends diagonally across the octagonal tag with Glue Dots.  Add to the top of the takeout box without adhering.

Wrap Gorgeous Grape 3/8 Mini Stripe Ribbon around the box and tie in a bow.  Use a Glue Dot to adhere the knot of the bow to the Gorgeous Grape octagon.

Using the Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus stamp positioning tool for best results, stamp heart image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Lemon Lime Twist card stock. Crop with the heart die from Takeout Thinlits Dies, the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform to keep the image in place.  Adhere the heart to the Black Foil banner.

Again using the Stamparatus, stamp “love you lots” from Takeout Treats stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Thick Whisper White card stock.  Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and banner die from Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies.  TIP:  Using Thick Whisper White card stock adds a bit more substance to the tag.  Add a Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dot for bling.
