Blessed Good Friday today… gosh, this has come oh so quickly for me… hard to believe it’s here already. I’ve been preparing some little gems to send forth to others using the SU! Mini Shipping Boxes and the Snailed It bundle. This is such a cute set… and I had lots of fun using the coordinating Snail Mail DSP. Let’s take a peek.
Aren’t these fun? Filled w/ little goodies for each to open, these will be a nice little treat. I covered each of the sides:
Bermuda Bay for the first box, Real Red for Box #2 and Pretty Peacock for box #3. (Card stock cuts will be listed at the bottom of this post.) I then used various sheets of the Snail Mail DSP to adhere to them – yep, liquid glue is my choice, but feel free to use Stampin’ Seal if that’s what you prefer. I then tied various coordinating ribbon around each: Braided Linen Trim, Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack, and finally Playing w/ Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack. Then I decorated the top.
I stamped each of the stamps with Memento Black ink then colored with appropriate Blends to coordinate with the particular box. Box #1 used Flirty Flamingo and Bermuda Bay, and I stamped the bubble in Flirty Flamingo ink; box #2 used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party Blends; box #3 used Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Flirty Flamingo. I die cut the mushroom and the snail with their respective dies using the Snail Dies. The Happy Mail rectangle was trimmed with paper snips. For box #2 I die cut the square using the Snail Dies and covered it with the same DSDP. Box #3 I also cut an envelope using the Snail Dies (cute cute envelope!) There is also a small rectangle die in the Snail Dies and I cut 3 using Basic White card stock, then used a Stampin’ Write marker to write the recipients name. I also made a pop-up for each box with a 1/2″ x 3 1/2 strip, scored every 3/4″. See the side-view photo.
And here’s one of the top view…
When I closed and filled the box, I adhered the bottom together with Seal + and put a Thick Basic White card piece in the bottom to make it more sturdy. I’m very pleased with how these turned out and hope the recipients like them too. Sending each of them special hugs…
