Howdy… how are you managing? It’s been 94 here for several days, maybe up to 98 or 99 today with very high humidity. My silver fern have wilted flat; my astilbe is shrunk to nothing. We have a very shady back yard but the plants are not used to these temps. I watered tonight for a bit and the system will come on in the early morning ~ we’ll see if we can save the plants. 😩😖
Previously I have been posting using the Hello Harvest bundle and some of the products in the suite. Yesterday I posted two masculine birthday cards using other items. So… I HAD to come back and use more of the suite products… I’ve used them with the Scalloped Kraft Treat Boxes to decorate for a sweet gift.
Here’s a side view of the completed project. The ribbon is Woven Ribbon and not part of the suite, but In liked it and decided to use it to tie the box together :O) The pumpkin is from the Hello Harvest bundle: stamped in Basic Gray for a subtle effect, then colored with Stampin’ Blends: Light So Saffron and Light Pumpkin Pie, then die cut with the Rustic Pumpkin Dies. I poked a hole in in the stem with my Take Your Pick Tool and the Stampin’ Pierce Mat in order to thread the ribbon through. I also die cut a couple of tendrils with the Rustic Pumpkin Dies in Garden Green card stock and adhered them to the pumpkin with dabs of liquid glue.
The leaf is part of the Leaf Label & Amber Gem Combo Pack, which is part of the suite. I stamped the leaf with Early Espresso ink and the Friends Are Like Seashell stamp set, then threaded it through the same ribbon. You can see tied a knot in the ribbon between the pumpkin and the leaf.
Here’s the top view…
- Cajun Craze card stock for the base of the belly band, layered with Gingham Cottage DSP in So Saffron plaid.
- Use largest of the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut a circle from the same DSP. Cut another circle in Basic White and adhere to the back of the DSP circle for strength.
- Stamp the banner on Basic White card stock with Early Espresso ink for the outline and the Lovely & Lasting stamp set.
- Stamp the word ‘cheers’ in Cajun Craze ink using the Lovely & Lasting stamp set, in the center of the banner. Punch with the Lasting Label Punch and adhere with dimensionals to the circle.
- Add three Amber Gems from the Leaf Label & Amber Gems Combo Pack.
- Wrap the belly band around the box; wrap the ribbon over it and attach the ribbon with Tear n Tape to the belly band. Tie a side bow.
- Attach the circle to the belly band/ ribbon with glue dots
- TIP: the belly band does not wrap entirely around the box and this circle/ banner cover that up. It is easy to slip the belly band off the box.
Here’s the side view of this adorable box. When it’s time for gift giving, I will fill with cookies as this is a food safe box! If you so wanted, it could be filled with wrapped candies too.
