Baby Gift Box
I saw this cute little box on SUDSOL, shared by Paula Geoff. It is one of Jody Morrow's creations. Jody,( some of you know her as TexasJodyLynn), is my stampin IDOL. Love her, love all she does. If you haven't been to visit her blog, you are missing out! Visit her over at Confessions of a Ribbon Addict. Be prepared to have your socks knocked off ... you've been warned. :)
I changed it a bit. You can see a tutorial written by Jody Morrow here. (Thanks Jody!) I cut my card stock 6x 11 and scored the 11 inch side at 4.5 and 6.5 with the Scor-Pal. Then I flipped the cardstock so that the six inch side is at the top of my Scor-pal and scored at 1.5 and 4.5. I then slid it into my Friskers cutter and cut on the score line from the top of the 6 inch side down to the center score line. I did that on each score line for a total of four times. Then, I slid the 11 inch end into my friskers again and cut off two inches of the flaps we just made. I then used my Scallop Edge punch and centered it along the ends to make the ends pretty.Fold and glue. I made the slots at the top of the box with my Word Window punch and then added a Kaiser Rhinestone to one of the clippies in the Stampin'Up! Clip assortment pack and clipped it closed.
I used the Flower Power and Baby Carriage stamp singles from Lizzie Anne Designs. This came together super easy and fast. I added some shazam to the carriage with Bubble Gum and Magenta Shimmerz Paint.
