Gift Bag Scoreboard Punch Boxes

Mint Macaron Boxes made with Gift Bag Punch 

I made a Mint Macaron card with the Botanical Builders Framelits Dies a few posts ago, because I fell in love with Mint Macaron when it was introduced last year.  Today I made these cute boxes to match the card I made earlier.  I used Mint Macaron for some of the box bases and some white DSP for 3 other boxes.

The lids are attached.  They simply flip up and remain attached.  The base boxes were covered with Designer Series Paper from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper -- retiring May 31-- and the stripes are from the 2014-2016 Designer Series Paper Stack (138433 )

I also made another set of boxes using some retiring Color Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Series 12 X 12 Paper as the base.  I'm working hard to clear out some of my beloved old stash to make room for the new catalog items.  I got up at 3 am on Tuesday morning, when demonstrators we able to begin placing pre-orders from the new catalog, to place my pre-order so I'll have samples to begin showing you soon!

Treat boxes made with Gift Bag Punchboard

These are the perfect size box for small treats and I plan to fill them with dried fruit and ship them to my mom, who loves dried fruit and nuts.  I purposely  didn't add a sentiment to the boxes to show you how versatile these little boxes can be.  These beautiful little boxes couldn't be easier to make using the Gift Bag Punch board.

  • Stamps: None; but any sentiment or stamped image can be added
  • Paper:  Whisper White, Mint Macaron, Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Mint Macaron
  • Accessories:  1" Mint Macaron Dotted Lace trim (138424), Gift Bag Punch Board (135862), Banner Triple Punch (138292), Simply Scored Scoring Tool  (122334), Tear & Tape Adhesive

Begin with an 11-3/8" X 6-3/8" piece of Mint Macaron card stock.  Using the Simply Scored Scoring tool, score along the long side at 1-3/8, 3-3/8, 6-3/8 and 8-3/8.  Turn the Mint Macaron card stock and score on the short side at 1-3/8 X 5".

Switching to the Gift Bag Punch Board, along the long edge, line up the score line with the score nozzle and punch.  

Line up each scoreline with scoreline nozzle and punch

Move to the next score line (3-3/8) and align with the score nozzle and punch.  Move to the third score line(6-3/8) and punch.  Move to the 4th score line (8-3/8) and punch.  On the longesr edge, line up with the nozzle and punch.  Now, flip the Mint Macaroon piece over and align and punch on the four score lines again -- 1-3/8, 3-3/8, 6-3/8 and 8-3/8.  Also align the longest edge and punch causing a rounded corner.  

Beginning folding the box at the score lines and crease them with a bone folder.  Using strong Tear & Tape Adhesive, overlap the box sides and glue the bottom of the box and then the lid portion of the box together.

The dimensions for the decorating pieces:
   Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper
    3-1/4" X 2-3/4"
    3-1/4" X`1-3/4"

Then use the Banner Punch to create the striped banners.
I used one of the patterns (stripes) from the 2014-2016 Designer Series Paper Stack and it is mounted on a sightly larger piece of Whisper White cut one size larger using the Banner Punch.

Here's what the little gift boxes look like next to the matching card.  Aren't they yummy?

2016 Retiring Items

The retiring list has been announced and retiring products are going fast, including some of my favorites.  However, its a great time to pick up some bargains.  Some retiring products are discounted up to 50%.  

Demonstrators have already gotten a peek at the new catalog, and its great.  However, prices on 8-1/2 X 11 paper packs are going up.  If you need any of the existing papers, you'll want to order before May 31.  You'll be able to purchase the new In-Colors on June 1 when the new catalog goes live.  I'll have my preorder this week and I'll post samples as soon as I receive them.
