What a glorious day it was yesterday! Beautiful spring like temperatures through the bulk of the day and then a light shower late in the afternoon; followed by a warm, sunny evening. Plus, I was able to kidnap my daughter and spend a little time with her while I ran a couple of errands. We enjoyed having time together. And she enjoyed forced procrastination.
Today’s use of the Banner Framelits for #stampingsunday is another one that has been rolling around up top for weeks. I just hadn’t made time to play with some scrap paper to get the mechanics right. They’re easy but I hate to waste “good” cardstock on a trial run.
I think you’re going to love these cute, easy boxes for your upcoming celebrations. Mine as you can see is going to be used for a birthday. But, I definitely see these as wedding, shower, graduation, etc. favors or a way to hold a special, small gift.
For this one I cut two Banner Framelits from Crisp Cantaloup and used a piece of Pumpkin Pie 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon. With so much white in the ribbon it works really well with a variety of shades. I inked my Label Love sentiment with Versamark and stamped on Vellum cardstock. The sentiment was heat embossed with Gold embossing powder, then punched with the Artisan Label Punch. The “A”s are just large enough to hide the Glue Dots that I used to adhere it to the box. After getting all the pieces in place, I used my bone folder to gently curl each point/tail at the top of the box.
Tip: When embossing on Vellum cardstock, keep the Heat Tool moving so the Vellum will not curl from the heat.

PS: As usual, I’ve forgotten one item in the table below for the products I used. This time, it was the Artisan Label punch (130920). All I can say is, “It’s like hitting the send button too soon on an email.” Sort of…
