Sheer Perfection: Little Box

Sheer Perfection Little Box Header
Hello Friends! I call this the Sheer Perfection Little Box, because I used the Stampin Up! Sheer Perfection Paper Stack from Sale-A-Bration, which is a designer series printed vellum; hence the Sheer Perfection name. But, I also think this little box is perfect for jewelry gifts, wedding favors, gift cards and table place settings. This is one designed using the perfect paper rose and I have several other designs made, but they’re for sharing this Autumn and Winter. Ahh, something to look forward to…

 

Sheer Perfection Little Box Final

 

This Sheer Perfection Box is quite simple to make. I first designed it with the 6″ x 6″ paper stack papers in mind, but changed the size to 5″ x 5″, so two bottoms could be cut from one 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock. With the 6″ x 6″ design only one bottom could be cut per sheet.

 

This is the template and dimensions I used:

*The score lines on this box were made all around, at 1-1/4″ for the bottom and at 3/4″ for the lid.

Here’s a close up of two of the cut corners:

The two papers were adhered together with dabs of Multi~Purpose Glue on the dark areas, so the glue wouldn’t show. Once the glue was dry, the glued layers were scored, the corners were cut and the lid was assembled. The photo to the left shows how the Pretty Petals Paper shows through the Sheer Perfection Vellum.

Bashful Blue Box…

Who doesn’t like a little blue box? While this one isn’t from Tiffany’s, it’s just as nice to fill with a present, gift card or goodies as we did in class. The lattice work pops off the box nicely and what can I say about the gorgeous ribbon except it’s beautiful and makes the perfect bow.

I traced a box template, which can be found on the internet, onto Bashful Blue Card Stock and cut it out. 

Using my Big Shot I cut 3 of the Lattice Bigz Die. Two of the lattice dies I cut in half for the sides of the box. I adhered them as shown. The last full lattice was placed on the lid of the box. The lattice hung over the edges so they were trimmed with Paper Snipes.

Before putting the box together I placed a Pretty-in-Pink Brad in the center of each side of the box and one in the center of the lid.

For the lid I made a tag from the Metal Edge Tags and the wonderful and fun Sweet Pea Stitched Felt.

In the inside of the box I added pink Easter grass and candy. 

 

These  boxes can be made in any color and used for so many occasions as favors or really nice wrapping for that special gift.

 

I hope I have inspired you to try some of your own. Forward me your designs and I’ll post them on my blog. The only stipulation is that you use all Stampin’ Up! products as this is an all Stampin’ Up! blog.

Thanks for visiting!

HUGS & stamps,
