Treat Week 2020 #3 - MORNING STAR Star Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute box that's like nothing that I 've ever created before.  I thought this would be a great project for Treat Week 2020.  Treat Week is my week long series sharing different treat projects ranging from simple to more advanced.  This fun unexpected Star shaped gift box will surly put the stars in someone's eyes.  Here's a look at my project.

This box uses products from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.  I used the Morning Start Stamp Set to stamp on my project today.  Enjoy stars and flowers in varying sizes in the Morning Star Stamp Set. Mix and match to create unique stamped patterns complemented by encouraging messages.  This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set; it allows you to layer two or more images to create one final image with extra texture and dimension in the colors you want. This is also a Distinktive stamp set; it has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images.   Since this set is a Distinktive set and the images could be layered made it was wonderful choice to use on this project.


This was the first version of this project.  I used the floral star image on the front and stamped one of the Morning /Glory flowers in the set and cut it out by hand.  I popped it up on the front to add a great amount of detail and interest.  This box needs two of the large stitched stars cut out in whatever cardstock color you pick.  For the above photo I picked Highland Heather with matching ink.  You also will need three strips of matching cardstock cut at 2 7/8" x 11.  I scored this piece on the long side at every 1 1/2" mark; so 1 1/2, 3, 4 1/2, 6, 7 1/2, 9, & 10 1/2".  I then scored on the short side at 3/8" all the way down.  You will fold and burnish all the scorelines, and add tear & tape on the 3/8" side, and they you are going to cut up the score lines to the first score line and you are going to deeply notch each section and how to cut the strips to make them long enough (see video).

This is a box that most people have not seen before and they will absolutely love them.  The final size of the box is 4" x 4" x 1 3/4".  I hope that you have been inspired to think of your supplies a little differently with today's project.  You can pick up all the supplies you need for today's Treat Week project in my online store by clicking on the image in the shopping list below.
