Dragonfly Dreams Gift Box
Hi Friends. Today I want to share this adorable project with you using the new stamp set from the Spring Occasions catalog called “Dragonfly Dreams“. I created these super simple boxes just using a few pieces of cardstock, my Stampin Trimmer and stamps/ink! If you don’t have a catalog yet or a Demonstrator, please email me so I can send you one.
The larger box measures 8 x 8″ for the bottom piece and 8 1/8″ x 8 1/8″ for the top. The bottom cardstock is Rich Razzleberry and the top is Whisper White. In hindsight, I probably would have used Very Vanilla instead because the color is more rich- but it’s still a super cute project don’t you think?
To begin with, you are going to use the matching ink and stamp the Dragonfly randomly on the White cardstock. The stamp set has so many beautiful stamps as well as a matching die cut!
Okay, it’s so simple to create this, you are going to LOVE it. Here it is. Score 1″ on all sides of your cardstock. That’s it. No, seriously!! Cut a slit on each corner so that you can fold up and glue the sides together to form the box lid and bottom.
Do the same thing with the top, but score the cardstock at 1/2″ and then again at 1″. This way, you fold in the 1/2″ to reinforce the lid, and it is also a smidgen smaller than the bottom so that the bottom cardstock shows through.
Then, you can go ahead and do this with ANY SIZE paper you like. Here is a smaller version of the same box:
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this project using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. If you like this project and want to see more like it- please leave me a comment below. -Angela
