  • Stamp SetsSunburst Sayings (wood: 140722, clear: 140725)
  • Cardstock – Sweet Sugarplum (141418); Whisper White (100730)
  • Stamp Pads – Sweet Sugarplum (141395)
  • Misc. – Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (DSP) (141654); Sweet Sugarplum 3/8” Ruched ribbon (141428); 1-1/4” circle punch (119861); 1-3/8” circle punch (119860); Stampin’ Dimensionals (104430)
  • Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock: 8-1/2” x 6” plus scrap for tag
  • Whisper White Cardstock: scrap for tag
  • Blooms & Bliss DSP: 2 pieces each 3-3/4” x 3-3/4” and 2 pieces each 3-3/4” x 3/4"
  1. With Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, score as follows:
    1. Score short edge at 1” and 5”
    2. Score long edge at 4” and 8” for entire length. Score at 2” and 6” to first score line only
    3. Use straight edge and stylus to score the diagonal lines shown on the diagram below. Tip: put cardstock on a paper piercing mat first to make it easier to push the stylus into the cardstock.
  2. Cut along the solid lines as shown below (2”, 4”, 6”, and 8” down to 1” mark; 4” and 8” up to 1” mark). Trim away small rectangles on side and also a little triangle above and below, leaving just a flap.
  3. Mark the center of one edge of DSP square and draw diagonal lines from the mark to the outer corners. Cut on lines to make 3 triangle shapes to match the box. Repeat for second DSP square. NOTE: the diagram is really showing the box upside down. The edge with 2 long flaps is actually the top of the box, so if your DSP has a direction, keep that in mind.
  4. Adhere the DSP to the box, leaving just a small border. Adhere the strips to the top flaps of the box.
  5. Apply adhesive of your choice (Tear & Tape, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Fast Fuse, etc) to flap and adhere to opposite side of box. Fold 4 flaps in and apply adhesive to two opposite sides and adhere.
  6. Wrap the top of the box with a length of ribbon, tying in a bow. The box can be opened and closed without untying the ribbon – just squeeze to open and release to close.
  7. Stamp greeting on cardstock scrap and punch with 1-1/4” circle punch. Punch 1-3/8” circle of Sweet Sugarplum and layer together. Attach to box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
