You're Nothing But a Big Shot!

On a previous post I showed lots of different projects without any real detail so I thought I would give a quick explanation for a few of them. First of all, this little boxed gift set with 3 note cards and a little box to put them in... the holder is made from 2 Scallop Envelopes (made with the Big Shot). Basically you trim the bottom flap off so it is only about a 1/2" wide and glue all the flaps of the two together. If you have the envelopes it is pretty easy to figure out. BTW, I did NOT come up with this idea, it has been widely shared by demonstrators, and I have been unable to trace it back to the originator so far.

The three matching cards I made are 3x3 and fit easily into the 3.25" wide box. Each of these was made with Sale-a-Bration products, including the Delicate Dots DSP as well as stamp set Polka Dot Punches. I also included sentiments from Short & Sweet as well as Think Happy Thoughts.

This adorable little box was also made with the Scalloped Envelope Die & Big Shot- but four of them this time! Also, there is no need for trimming as the bottom flaps form to make the bottom of the box. I wanted to show all the fun patterns in this pack of DSP so I used a different paper for each side.

The embellishment on the front is a stamp from Polka Dot Punches again, embossed in white, then punched out and layered with a clear button and some Certainly Celery Grosgrain ribbon. It would be a perfect little basket to hold a chocolate Easter bunny for a special someone! Best part it, it is so easy!

Well, I haven't stamped for 2 days (wore myself out on Friday I think and it was my DH's birthday yesterday) so I'll get busy and have something new to show you soon!

Thanks for stopping by,
