How to make a Itty Bitty Birthdays Curvy Keepsake Boxes

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super cute little gift packaging idea for you that's great for birthdays wedding shower favors or anything really.  The great part is they are super easy to do.  You just need the die set, a few sheets of 6 x 6 designer series paper or cardstock a little ribbon and a stamp set with ink.  Here's a look at what I created during my Facebook Live last Wednesday.  


During the Live I actually made five little treat boxes in all the 2019-2021 In Colors; Rococo Rose, Sea Side Spray, Pretty Peacock, Purple Posy, and Terracotta Tile.  I have not decorated them all yet but I asked my viewers if they wanted to see the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box in all five colors and of course they did so I made them.  Really the secret to making these projects are in the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box Dies.  These dies make it so easy to whip out as mini of these little boxes as you want.  It's great with the die set because the die not only cuts everything but it puts the score marks in as well.

One other great things about this die set is it only takes one sheet of 6 x 6 cardstock or designer series paper to make the box.  So if you are using designer series paper you could whip out 48 in no time.  Think about how fast that would be to make party favors.  They only hold a few pieces of candy but really that's all you need for a little gift.  


To get the nice rounded look that you see in the picture above I used my bone folder and just gave each side a little bend.  It didn't take anytime at all.  I used some scrap Whisper White cardstock and cut out the banner and tag   The tag die came from the stamp set.  With this die set you have a few options on the tags.  There's a heart, the oval (that I used here), a square, a circle and a star.  Plus a couple extra little dies to use to add to your design.  


I stamped my greeting in Seaside Spray Classic Ink onto the 1/2" strip of Whisper White Cardstock and made the ends in to a fishtail banner.  I attached it to the tag with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I then added the tag with a little Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon.  For the other box I colored the Gold Edged Metallic Ribbon with my Stampin' Blends to make a matching ribbon.

Treat Week 2020 #2 - UNDER MY UMBRELLA & Pleased As Punch Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the next project in my Treat Week 2020 series.  Treat Week is my week long series sharing different treat packaging and projects. Each day this week I will be sharing a new video tutorial along with coordinating blog post. For today's project I made this super cute box that's a great size.  I used new projects form the Coordinating Product Release (Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper) that's coming on February 4, 2020, along with the Under the Umbrella bundle.  This box will hold a lot of treats due to it's size.  Which by the way measures 5" x 3" x 1 1/2", so you can see its a good size.   Here's a look at my project.


I used one piece of cardstock to make this box.  I used a piece of Blushing Bride for the pink box and Gorgeous Grape for the purple box.  Both boxes was made with a piece of cardstock measuring 8 x 10 1/2".  I scored each piece on the longside at 1 1/2, 4 1/2, 6, 9.  Then I scored on the short side at 1 1/2 & 6 1/2.  Once I had the cardstock cut and scored it was time to cute the designer series paper.  For this box you need the following designer series paper; (2) 2 3/4 x 4 3/4, (2) 1 1/4 x 4 3/4. and (1) 2 3/4 x 1 1/4.


You will also need to punch out one of the umbrellas from the designer series paper (and I will go ahead and tell you that the design on the paper are not punch design friendly.  You will have to cut the paper to get the design you want to punch out, they don't line up like the punch if that makes scenes.  It does in my head but not sure if it is in the text.


To secure the box close I tied it shut with the Gorgeous Grape Mini Striped Ribbon.  I placed the sentiment on a 2" circle from Whisper White and then added one of the umbrella from the designer series paper popped up with a couple dimensionals.  I love the designs in this pack of paper and the face that it coordinates with punches in the Mini Catalog and the Small Bloom punch from Saleabration.  Dress up your paper crafts with the flowers, hearts, raindrops, and other patterns from the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper. Great card making paper, scrapbooking paper, and more.

Whitman's Chocolate Bar Heart to Heart Treat Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am gong to share with you a super cute box that I made to hold a Whitman's Chocolate Bar.  I wanted to dress up the already cute packaging that the chocolate bar already comes in.  I used the Heart to Heart Bundle to dress up my project.  This is actually a super easy project to do even through it doesn't look like it.  Here's a look at today's project.

The first thing that I did was figure out what size cardstock I needed to create my box.  Once I had the cardstock figured out.  The measurement for my cardstock is 7" x 7 3/4".  On the 7 3/4" side you are going to score at 1 1/2, 1 7/8, 4 5/8, and 5.  On the 7" side you are going to score at 3/8" and 6 5/8".  Once I had everything cut I stamped the solid heart from the Heart to Heart stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink on the front.  I then ran the whisper white cardstock piece through my die cutting machine with the Detailed heart die.  
Once I had the die cut out I took the loose hearts and colored them with my Stampin' Blends.  I colored each heart with either the light of dark Real Red and Flirty Flamingo markers.  I only used one color for each heart.  Once I had that done I sat them aside for later use.  
After coloring the hearts I added the detailed hearts die cut to the front of the box.  To do this I added the heart die cut to the front of the box with a little liquid glue behind the solid hearts and little dots behind all the other hearts that will touch the front.  Once all the glue was applied I placed the detail die cut onto the front of the box.  I let it dry before taking my snips and cutting off what was over hanging.  
After the detailed die cut was dried.  I came back in with my Take Your Pick Tool and a little liquid glue and added just a little glue into the open hearts.  I then picked the colored hearts that I did with my Stampin' Blends and placed them into each open spot I added the glue.  Once the glue was dry I added clear wink of stella to each one.  The wink of stella really doesn't show up very well in the photo but looks of so cute in person.  
To finish off my super cute little box I stamped my sentiment in Flirty Flamingo onto a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock and then stamped the outline from the stamp set in Real Red.  I used the matching Story Label Punch and popped it up in the center of the box with a couple Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added two of the colored hearts to the front of the sentiment with a couple mini glue dots.  
Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you find my Whitman's Chocolate Bar Box as cute as I do.  I also hope that it will make you think about decorating a few chocolate bars yourself.  I picked mine up at the Dollar Tree.  Which is a great place to pick up certain candy inexpensively.  You can find all the supplies I used in the Stampin' Up! Shopping List below.
