Valentine Stamps/dies I used Lawn Fawn in this project.
copic or other coloring media
6″ X 6″ score all four sides at 2″
4″ X 4″ score all sides at 1″
1 7/8 ” X 5 1/2″ score at 1 7/8″,2 3/8″,4 1/2″, and 4 3/4″
Solid Card stock 1 7/8″ square
Patterned paper 1 3/4″ square
Start with the box bottom, cut away the outside 4 square so that the base somewhat resembles a “T” shape. Corner round these pieces and the solid and patterned papers you will be using will need rounding at the top edge. It is personal preference to do both the inside and outside of the box bottom when it comes to decoration. As you see in the video, I took the few extra minutes to pay attention to this detail.
For the top, cut from the outside to the inner side of the lid, making slight indentations which will allow the top to fold more easily.
Score and use a circle punch or die on the 1 7/8″ X 5 1/2″ piece of card stock. Fold and glue together then attach to the inside of the box. You may choose to use some glue dots to assure your lip gloss will stay in place.
I stamped and using my Brother Scan and cut dx cut out all of my stamped images. I then arranged them in a pleasing manner on the outside of the box being careful to avoid gluing the flaps together. The box was finished off with a fun sticker from my collection.
If you give this a try, please give me proper credit. I found this Youtube video which gave me the inspiration for today’s project. Please email me with any questions. Stamp happy and be a blessing until next time.
