Stampin Friends - Blog Hop - Bags Boxes and Tags

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop for November! 

This month's theme is 'Bags, Boxes and Tags'. 

If you are following along with the Hop, you may have arrived from  Tiziana's Blog. 

Be sure to read through my post, comment below and then continue on to Barb's Blog. 

If you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of all the participants at the end of each of their Blog Posts.

Here are the projects I made for this month's Hop ...

I chose not to do a Holiday project this time because I wouldn't use the box. BUT if you need a box this size to use for a gift for the Holidays, it would make a beautiful Holiday project by just changing the colours to more seasonal ones.

I used the Framed Florets stamp set and die set to create a large Gift Box and matching card.

The colours used are Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana and Basic White.

The Gift Box measures 6" x 5¼" x 3".

The Basic White panel was embossed using the Timber folder.

The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

The little hearts are individual hearts glued into position through a template.

I added a sentiment to the card. This was heat embossed using White Powder.

Here is the Video for the Gift Box ...


Melon Mambo – Base                    12” x 11

                                                                     Score at 3” on all sides


Coastal Cabana – Lid                      7 13/16” x 8 9/16”

                                                                      Score at 1¼” on all sides


Melon Mambo                                    14.3cm x 12.3cm       (US 5⅝” x 4”)

Basic White                                          14cm x 12cm               (US 5½” x 4¾”)

Coastal Cabana                                  14cm x 12cm               (US 5½” x 4¾”



You will need additional Basic White and Silver Foil card to complete the project.

Wow, such a beautiful card and box. I am in awe that those hearts were glued individually.
