It's club time!!! I had my monthly club group over this Wednesday. I LOVE Valentine's Day so I was excited to do some Valentine projects. Plus, Stampin' Up! is offering their LOVE YOU MUCH BUNDLE on special this month...so why not use that? I LOVE this bundle! The punch, the paper, the stamp set...it's PERFECT!!! ****SPECIAL ALERT***** If anyone orders the Love You Much Bundle from me (either email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or order 24/7 on my Stampin' Up! website: www.ashleyvancamp.stampinup.net ) I will send you out BOTH of these projects for free!!!!
On to the projects...we did a card and a fabulous chocolate box! The card....
The pink pirouette piece is up on dimensionals so the birds are in a little window. I got this from Kristina Werner. She has all the directions for you as part of her Virtual Club. Click HERE if you are interested. Such a darling card.
I love this box so much. I just thought it was perfect. I saw it HERE on Cambria's blog. She gives you all the directions, but I am adding a little piece. I'm a visual person, so I thought if you were too....this picture of what the box looks like after it's scored and cut will help:
So you start with a 4.5" x 8" piece of Card stock. With the 4.5" end butted up against the top of your cutter, score at 1" and 3.5". Then flip it so the 8" piece is butted up against the top of your cutter. Score at 2", 3", 5", and 6". Then cut where shown in the picture. If you want any stamping on your box, stamp before you put together. I used Sticky Strip to hold mine, because I don't want this falling apart. :) Then I closed the flap with velcro. TOO MUCH FUN and such a great Valentine for anyone!
Thanks to both Kristina and Cambria for their wonderful ideas! :) I love my club gals and want to have fun projects for them when they come each month! So thanks to these gals, they did! :)
