I thought about making something that my stampers could do as a project but still make something with paper that was card related. So I came up with this "pizza" style looking box that holds at least 3 or more note cards with envelopes. I was looking for a simple design to use, so I decided to go with the Stampin' Up "Daydream Medallions" stamp set. Here's the recipe so you can make it too:
- Cardstock (I chose Tip Top Taupe)-6 in. x 11 in.
- Score the long side of the card stock at --1, 5, 6, and 10 inches
- Score the short side of the card stock at -- 1 and 5 inches.
After scoring, cut each score line along the long side of the paper on each side. These will become the tabs that will help to hold the box together. Decide on which side will be the top of the box and stamp your design now.
- Assemble the box by using Fast Fuse glue tape, which will be extra strong to hold the box together well. Your box should be completed.
- The belly band (goes around the box) measures 11 in. x 1 1/2 inches.
- Decorate the belly band any way you would like and wrap the band around the box but not too tightly to allow room to slide the band off and back on.
- Card stock ( Tip Top Taupe) cut to 3 in. x 6 in.
- Score each at 3 inches
- Choose your color for the liner paper (I chose Early Expresso) and cut it at 2 3/4 in. x 2 3/4 inches.
- Choose your color for the stamped face of the card (I chose Very Vanilla) and cut it at 2 1/2 in. x 2 1/2 in.
- Stamp your chosen design on the face of the card and fold each card on the score line.
- Cut your card print surface at 2 1/2 in. x 2 1/2 in.
- Using the Stampin' Up Envelope Punch Board (Item #133774 @ $20). I cut ordinary copy paper to fit the 3 x 3 inch cards. The paper should be cut to 5 1/4 inches x 5 1/4 inches square. Now score and punch the first side of the paper with the punch board at 2 5/8 in. Then turn the paper and following the previous score line you just created, punch. Then turn the paper and using the previous score line punch again. Turn the paper and follow the score line and punch. Fold the envelope on the score lines and assemble the envelope with glue runner tape.
YOUR ENTIRE PROJECT IS DONE AND MAKES A VERY NICE GIFT FOR SOMEONE OR FOR YOUR OWN USE! Hope you enjoyed this project. For any questions, please send me an email. Happy Stamping!
