I made this gift for Carole a recent hostess at a Stampin' Party and is used the free ribbon and clips that are on offer this month. It is still not too late to grab yourself one of these lovely little cosmetic bags filled with over £18+ worth of Stampin Up products. The offer finishes on August 31st and if you order is over £75+ you will receive the free gift, (details on the sidebar of my blog).
So I wanted to show you how I made this quick and easy gift.
I used a piece of Very vanilla in 12×12" size and stamped one side using Vintage Vogue and the Texture wheel (my new fave!!) using Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso Inks. Make the pattern random and fill the entire sheet till you are happy.
Then you need to score the cardstock. score at 8.5cm, 10cm, 20cm & 21.5cm. Turn the cardstock 90 degrees and score the same measurements again. Now remove the four corner squares following the score lines as a guide and set aside. Corner round or add a fancy corner punch if you wish at this stage.
Now to make the cards, I got 3 card blanks out of a sheet of A4 and used four cards in total that measure 9.9cm square. Cut 4 x Pretty In Pink Cardstock square measuring 9.5cm x 9.5cm and then trim the stamped square you removed from the 12×12 sheet to 9cm square. You can now layer them to make the cards. Add the finishing sentiment using the scallop punches and the Oval All Stamp set.
Place in the center of the box and close the flaps around the cards. Add the clips with ribbon if you wish to the card fronts. Tie with the FREE rich razzleberry ribbon and add a sentiment of your choice to the bow. You can also add pearls or rhinestones to finish the cards off.
And of course you can change the size to suit your contents!!
Isn't it lovely and it makes a lovely gift when tied with the coordinating ribbon.
