Hi! I’m Sara Levin theartfulinker an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the US. Welcome to my blog. Today, I’m sharing a box I made for a baby gift that use Count On Me. Let’s take a look.
Count on Me Gift Box
I made this cute gift box to hold a Mini Album that I made as part of a baby gift. The Mini Album measured 6″ x 6″ and I wanted packaging that was as cute as the album was pretty. And, it is much easier to “wrap” a Mini Album in a custom box than it is to use wrapping paper.
After scoring my Basic White box bottom, I stamped the bear from Count on Me in Blushing Bride around the sides of the box. Then, I went back around the sides and added a little Blushing Bride splatter using a stamp from Forever Fern. It added just enough texture to the white spaces so that the bears didn’t look lost in too much space. Finally, I used my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the heart that the bear is holding.
On the Top
Next, I added a Blushing Bride lid for the box. On top of the lid is a Basic White square that I embossed with a folder from the Checks and Dots. You will need to run the piece through a second time to emboss the whole thing as the Checks and Dots Embossing Folders are narrow.
After cutting Basic White with a Tailor Made Tags Die, I also embossed it with a Checks and Dots folder. To mat the tag, I added a layer of Blushing Bride to help it pop against the Basic White square. Over the tag is a piece of Blushing Bride that I cut with a Pretty Pillow Box Die.
Then, I stamped the Count On Me bear in Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake and colored the heart with Light Real Red Stampin’ Blends. To dress the bear, I stamped on Blushing Bride Subtles Designer Paper and used my Paper Snips to cut out both the bear and her onesie.
To finish the tag, I added a floofy bow tied with White Crinkled Seam Binding.
