This is what Lynne and I did on our Tuesday stampin’ day. I guess we really didn’t stamp, but you get the idea. Lynne saw these on someone’s blog, so we used the same pattern for the Frankie box as we did on my earlier post using the Top Note Die by Sizzix. The sucker is using the Pillow Box die. They are so cute. Who wouldn’t want to receive one of these guys?
This little box was so easy to make and only takes a few minutes. I used the Top Note die from Sizzix and DSP from the Patterns Pack Designer Series Paper,( Hostess, level 1). I didn’t even have to cut the DSP. You fold in each side and adhere using a mini glue dot. Then fold up the bottom and secure with another glue dot. I added a Felt Flurrie Snowflake with a Real Red brad. Thats it. Inside I put some Hershey Kisses in our small cello bags and tied it with the Real Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. This could make such a cute little gift for a, teacher, neighbor, friend. My friend, Deirdre sent me the directions for this box, but I don’t know who to thank for the idea. The gal who designed this box didn’t put her info on the directions. This is almost the size of a small french fry box.
Here is another box using the Pennant die from Sizzix, Item #113483 but this time I used the Ski Slope DSP from the Holiday Mini catalog. (See page 12 of the mini catalog, Item #112994). I also used Baja Breeze c/s and grosgrain ribbon. For the inside I used the Large Scallop die #113468 & I cut 2 of them, cut one in half and added a strip of DSP to match the box. I added the Snowflakes set #2, Item #113449, to the large scallop with 2-way glue and put one on the scallops from the pennant die with dimensionals. The scallop has 2 dimensionals on the bottom attached to the box and this holds the top flap down. I know “clear as mud” right? I added a gift card to the large scallop. You could also put a c/d inside of the box. I love when you can find another use for a tool. Who would of thought to make a box with the Pennant Die? I need to thank Jennifer Buck for her tutorial. You can see her tutorial here. The Buck Stamps Here.
