Box Making with Favored Flowers

Earlier this week, the Playtime with Paper team had our quarterly Stampin’ Up! meeting. The meetings are lots of fun and include learning new techniques or projects. Box making using the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper was one of the technique projects from this week’s meeting. The Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper is a Sale-a-Bration brochure product and can be selected for FREE with a $50 Stampin’ Up! purchase. The designer series paper is gorgeous and coordinates with the Fragrant Flowers Bundle in the Jan-Apr Mini Catalog. Even better, some of the Fragrant Flowers Dies coordinate with the paper so no fussy cutting!

Box and Embellishment Project Materials:
  • Box:
    • Basic Black Cardstock (discontinued): 12″ x 12″; cut a sliver of cardstock (approx. 1/16″) from two adjoining sides of the cardstock.  Next score at 2-1/2″ on all sides. NOTE: Since the Basic Black Cardstock is no longer available in a 12″ x 12″ size,  I recommend substituting with colors from the 2021-2023 In Color 12″ x 12″ pack (either the Fresh Freesia or Evening Evergreen) or Regals 12″ x 12″ Cardstock (Old Olive). 
    • Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper: 10-1/2″ x 10-1/2″; score at 1-3/4″ on all sides
    • Strong Adhesive – Tear & Tape, Seal + or Multipurpose Liquid Glue
    • Paper Trimmer
    • Scissors
  • Embellishment:
    • Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper
