Sweet Strawberry Expolsion Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super cute project to share with you using the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set and matching Strawberry Builder Punch.  I created an expulsion box for you today.  The Strawberry Builder Punch was super poplar that it sold out for awhile and finally Stampin' Up! got more back in stock!  So, I wanted to share this project with you today.  Here's a look at my project.

Surprisingly this was not as hold of a project as I thought it would be.   I actually found the template for this project on Cricut Design Space and used my Explore Air 2 to cut all the Stampin' Up! cardstock out.  I had never done this before and was surprised at how simple it really was.  You can totally make this project without the use of a Cricut if you don't have one.  It's just a few simple cuts, some scoring, and a little gluing.

I was being super lazy the day I wanted to try this so I let the machine do all the hard stuff and I simply had to figure out how to layer it up to make it work.  I will tell you that you do not what to glue anything down expect the middle squares in each piece.  This is because if you glue the wrong thing in the wrong place the score lines will not match up and the box will not close correctly.   I know that some people will frown upon my laziness but hey why not give it a try was my thought.

Cardstock & Designer Series Paper: 

For this project I went with the 12" x 12" Assorted Cardstocks in the Brights and Subtles Collections and used Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, and Soft Sea Foam.  I also used a piece of Basic White 12" x 12" as well.  But, I had plenty of left overs to cut the mats, and additional stamping that I did to finish the project.

For the Designer Series Paper I used the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.  Polka dots, flowers, stripes, and more. Whatever type of pattern you need, you'll find it in the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper. Printed paper is excellent scrapbook paper, card making paper, and more. Use these pattern staples in any season, for any occasion. This is a host product that is only available with Stampin' Rewards.  Since this pack of DSP has 48 sheets of 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper I have been trying to find ways to use it a lot.  I love that one side is colorful and the other side is black and white prints.  So, you will find the perfect piece for any project you can dream up.  

Pick a Patch of Strawberries: 

For the sentiment and focal images I used the Sweet Strawberry Bundle;   The Sweet Strawberry Bundle includes the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set and the Strawberry Builder Punch.  The Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set is full of plump strawberries and all-occasion sentiments, this is a stamp set you'll reach for again and again to create handmade cards, scrapbook pages, and more.  It contains 16 photopolymer stamps (the Suggested clear blocks to use with this set are blocks: a, b, c, d.  Oh, by the way it's also a Distinktive stamp set.  Meaning that it will give you realistic tones and values with just one try.

The Sweet Strawberry Bundle also comes with the Strawberry Builder Punch; which will allow you to make quick cuts out of the stamped images or build a strawberry with one punch. Use your favorite paper and colors to customize it just the way you want.  The largest punched image measures 1-5/16" x 1-1/4".  So, it's the perfect size for any project.  

The craft bundles from Stampin' Up! make coordination easy. Stamp & tool bundles help you quickly cut out stamped images for a single project or create multiples of the same project with ease.

To finish off the project I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and a little of the Flirty Flamingo Metallic Ribbon.  Here's a look at the top of the box.
