Dressed to Impress Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing with you the other box that I made last week and told you I would share it with you later.  This is a very famine version of the Beautiful World and Forever Greenery Boxes I shared last week.  If you missed those posts, I have linked them for you above.   With this box I wanted to showcase the Dressed to Impress Bundle and products that are in that suite from the January-June Mini Catalog.  Sadly, most of these products are on the retiring list.   But I am quite sure everything I used is still available.  Here is a look at my project.

For this box you will need a piece of Petal Pink Cardstock cut at 8 ½ x 10 1/2.  I scored on the 10 ½” side at ½”, 3 ½”, 5 ½” and 8 ½”.  The other two score lines are on the 8 ½” side and they are at 2” and 6 ½”.  I told you it was simple.  The box is made the same as the other two so make sure to check out those post.  The Forever Greenery Box has a video tutorial that walks you step by step on how to make the boxes.

For this box I went with the stripped pattern from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper Pack and added it to the front, two sides, and top.  I picked Purple Posy Cardstock to mat the designer series paper before adding it to the box.  I thought that the Purple Posy was a great choice to add to the box since it was in my chosen paper.

Next, I stamped the lipstick and perfume images from the stamp set in Basic Gray Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock and cut them out with the matching dies.  Then I added a little color to each image with the wash image from the stamp set.  There are a couple different size images to color the images without having to color.  I stamped the lipstick base in Basic Gray Classic Ink and the top in Lovely Lipstick Classic Ink.  The inside of the perfume bottle was stamped with Petal Pink Classic Ink.

After I had the focal images stamped and colored it was time to do a sentiment.  I stamped the Be as Bold as Your Lipstick Sentiment in Basic Gray Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock.  And then punched it out with a 2” Circle Punch.

After all the stamping was complete, I took the 1/8” Sheer Mint Macaron Ribbon and tied around the box.  I then layered the perfume bottle and lipstick tube up on dimensionals.  I let the perfume bottle layer over the ribbon but still allowed the ribbon to slide through.  I then added my sentiment on dimensionals.

To finish off the box I added a few Basic Rhinestones to add just the right amount of sparkle and shine.  Thanks for dropping by today.  If you need any of the supplies you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store from the links below.
