3 X 3 Box with Matching Cards Tutorial




Here is the project we made at my 2008 Great eScape event with Stampin' Up! It was a huge hit! I would love to make 50 of these - and I practically did this last weekend with my first-level downline! They came to make these, too, and we had loads of fun! Give it a try, you'll be hooked! If you don't want to make your box and matching cards with monograms, you can use any of our stamps that can be punched out with a 1" circle punch, so the possibilities are endless and they all turn out so precious! The colors I used were Soft Sky, So Saffron, River Rock, and Groovy Guava. All supplies used and shown are from Stampin' Up! The videographer: My son, Hunter

Box Bottom: Card stock measuring 9 X 3-1/2; score along the 9" side at 1/2", 1-1/2", 4-3/4", and 5-3/4"; score along the 3-1/2" side at 1"; Designer Paper: 3 X 2-1/4; Ribbon: 14" long

Penny, How beautiful, yet simple enough to be able to make these in a short period of time. Your videos are awesome. Thanks from a long distance learner!
