Hi my Stampin’ Friends,
I have been asked by a lovely lady called Thove who is one of my Subscribers if I would make a Gift Box that measured 3 x 3 x 2″ as she didn’t feel very confident to do this herself. I was delighted to take up this challenge so today I have made a Box to these measurements and have made a video that explains how you go about sizing up measurements for Boxes.
I hope this will help any of you that are struggling with this. It did take me quite a while to work out measurements for Boxes when I first started making them, as it can be quite a headache to start with. Nearly drives you mad!!! However, perseverance always pays and once mastered you will be able to make any Box in any shape or size.
I hope you all love the Box I made which I have embellished with flowers, which are my favourite. I LOVE FLOWERS! Gorgeous.
The good news is that you can purchase all the products demonstrated in the video from me and I have a GIVEAWAY this week of a pack of 10 Sheets of 6 x 6″ Regals Designer Paper with EVERY ORDER from my ONLINE SHOP which are so pretty and come in FOUR different designs so you will have plenty to make some gorgeous projects with. (Offer ends on Sunday, 5th March 2017 and will be posted out to you directly by me). As part of my Customer Rewards Club you will also receive a handmade Card and Gift too!
To make the Box you will need the following products:-
Blushing Bride and Rose Red and Whisper White Cardstock,
Regals Designer Series Paper Stack,
Blossom Bunch Punch,
