Twice a year Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have the opportunity to get together at an event called OnStage for training and the opportunity to network. It is always such fun; we get to see the up-coming new catalogue, to try out some of the new product and to get some business tips and ideas and come away with some freebies……..Whoop Whoop.
As part of the fun many of us design and make swaps to share with other demonstrators and this time I opted for a 3D swap using some of the Brights colour collection – Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzelberry, Old Olive, Bermuda Bay and Real Red. I knew I wanted to use mini Toblerones , love these………. so I searched Pinterest and Youtube for ideas on packaging and stumbled across an video by Linda Parker – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrV6TkIV5qg featuring a box she made to hold 2 mini Toblerones. I adapted her measurements and came up with this cute little triangular box.
I started with a piece of cardstock 5” by 5¼”. Using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool I scored the long side at ⅞”, 1”, 2¼”, 3½” and 4¾”. I rotated the cardstock 90⁰ and scored on the short side at 1¼”and 3¾”.
Rotating the cardstock to the long side again with the ½” score line on the left make a notch mark at the 2⅜” mark at the top and bottom of the cardstock.
Using scissors cut as shown in the photograph.
Taking a ruler and the scoring tool, score from the 2⅜” notch to the right angled score lines to form a triangle at the top and bottom.
Fold and burnish all of the score lines, bendy the triangular scorelines in the opposite direction to the rest – see photograph. I also rounded the corners of the top flap.
I applied Fast Fuse to the 4 tabs and closed the sides of the box. The mini Toblerone was then inserted and the flap closed over.
Taking a whole sheet of Whisper White cardstock I randomly stamped a variety of flowers and leaves using the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and the same Brights colour palette used for the boxes. I then cut the stamped cardstock into 4½” by ¾” strips using the Stampin’ Paper Trimmer.
These were wrapped around each box and stuck together with Fast Fuse. I stamped the sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set in one of the Brights colours onto Whisper White cardstock before punching it out with a ¾” Circle punch. Using Fast Fuse I added this circle to a 1” circle punched using the Brights collection of cardstock and a 1” Circle punch. The circle was then stuck onto the belly band using Fast Fuse.
