Stamper’s Showcase 2019 Holiday Catalog Favorites

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop today! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

The project I decided to create is an adorable paper box from the gorgeous Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. These boxes are super fun and quick to put together! In my YouTube tutorial, I show you how to calculate your measurements so that you can make a variety of sizes!

I like to have options when creating my boxes and think they look so cute on the plates at a beautifully set table for the holidays. You can put in a couple of chocolates, maybe some lottery tickets, or just cute notes to your family and friends. What would you put inside?

The length and width of all the boxes I made here are 3″ x 3″ and vary in height, with the tallest measuring 2-1/2″. You can make them so you can’t see the bottom part of the box, or make a shorter lid and a taller base so you can see the contrast. There are just so many options!

I really hope you enjoyed this project, and would love to see your boxes after you give them a try! Tag me on Instagram (@MKre8tions) so that I can share your beautiful projects!

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop Christmas Inspiration

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! If you’re new, hi, I’m Melissa. If you’re a seasoned visitor, you know the drill. We are hopping with the Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop today and the theme is Christmas! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

For my project today I’ve decided to go 3D with the most ADORABLE clamshell box ever! I CASE’d this 2″ square box from Crafty Caroline Creates and gave it an update with the beautiful Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. I absolutely love how it turned out and can’t wait to make more!

The clamshell portion of this little box can be a bit tricky, so I’ve made a template for you to view. You can download a copy of the template by clicking here.

The way this box comes together is both clever and adorable, with the inner box being a fun surprise and pop of color! There are so many fun things you can do with a box like this, such as stocking stuffer, guest place holders at a nice dinner, party favors, and so much more! What would you use this box for?

DSP for Clamshell Box: 6″ x 8-1/2″
With the long edge at the top, score @: 1/2″, 2-1/2″, 4-1/2″, 6-1/2″, rotate so short edge is at the top and score @: 2″ & 4″.

Rooted in Nature Crate Container

Welcome to the Ink & Share Blog Hop! I am so excited to be hopping with so many talented
Stampin’ Up!®️ Demonstrators from around the globe! Today’s hop is featuring anything but cards. So what does that mean? Well, it could be boxes, scrapbook layouts, place cards for table settings, just about any paper craft that isn’t a card! I love this theme and am excited to share my project with you!

Don’t forget to click that Next button at the bottom of this post to hop around to all of the talented demonstrators participating this month!

I can’t get over how ADORABLE this Crate Box is! I was scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration on the Rooted in Nature Bundle and stumbled across Nadine’s Stampin Club. She posted this gorgeous box, and I believe it was inspired by Sabine’s Kreativecke. Thank you ladies, for your amazing talent and for sharing this wonderful project with the world!

So, in my video, I highly encouraged viewers to come to this blog post so that they could see the list of measurements. I think it’s a lot easier to cut paper for a project when it’s all in one, neat list. So, below are the measurements and the materials I’ve used on this project today. Don’t forget to scroll all the way down to check out the video tutorial and then hop around to all of the other wonderful demonstrators on this blog hop by clicking on the Next button!

Wrap – Old Olive 3-3/8″ x 9-3/4″ (length is approximate if you score as I did in the video)
The first two score lines on the wrap are 1-3/4″ & 3-1/2″
With the crate on the wrap, fold and score around crate for snug fit.

Measurements:

Box: 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Score @ 1-3/4″ & 3-3/4″
Lid: 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ Score @ 3/4″ & 2-3/4″
