One of my favorite Big Shot Dies, the Box #2 Bigz XL Die, is retiring and I'm taking a walk down memory lane with this adorable project from last year. Creating this box is a snap - just one zip through the Big Shot does it all - the die scores and cuts the box pattern for you! All that's left to do is fold the box into shape and decorate as desired. So EASY!!
Wondering about the embellishments? This was a fun choice from the 2011 Sale-a-bration product offering that was also a personal favorite.
I just came from the online clearance rack where I spotted the Ice Cream Parlor Suite of accessories on sale now.
For quick and easy treats for the box, simply wrap a few chocolate nugget candy bars with strips of Designer Series Paper and add a die-cut flower accent. Super easy to do and people LOVE these little decorated treats.
I also created a coordinating 3x3 mini card using the same paper and die-cuts. This adorable little ensemble makes a great gift for a friend, co-worker, teacher, or neighbor.
Today's project featured the following Stampin' Up! products:
Includes Standard Cutting Pads and Multipurpose Platform
Essential for cutting with Bigz XL dies
Use with extended cutting pads
This combo pack includes 9 sheets of bright and fun patterned paper (3 sheets of each of 3 double sided designs), plus two 12 x 12 sheets of self-adhesive die-cut accents.
Ice Cream Parlor Ribbon and Button Pack
Includes 1/4" White grosgrain printed with colorful flower designs (approx. 15 yds.) and a package of 48 flower buttons - 16 each in Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Pacific Point.
Note: Stamped images on this project were created using the Punch Bunch stamp set (exclusive 2011 Sale-a-bration product). While no longer available to order new, I have one gently used clear mount set available for purchase. Please email me for details if you are interested in purchasing this stamp set.
