Tutorial: New Scalloped Tag Topper Box

Published by under 3D projects | Mar 25 2014

Hi friends,

Following on from my post last week, I played around with Jacquie’s Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Box and made a couple of modifications.

I wanted the new box to have flaps on the inside, so the box was more ‘closed’ on the sides.

This is the new creation…

Alt Scallop Tag Topper Box

How to create this version:

1. Cut card stock to 4 ½” x 7 ¾”. You can comfortably get two boxes from one A4 sheet.

2. Score short side at 1¼ and 3 ¼.

3. Turn and score long side at 1¼, 3 ¼, 4 ½ and 6 ½.

4. Remove two corners and cut along the score lines as shown on the first template above.

Hope you can see the pic clearly enough. Let me know if you can’t and I’ll add a better shot.
Tip: You can cut the score lines in different ways to create the tabs but this layout worked well for me because it added extra strength to the sides while still looking neat on the inside when the lid was raised. 

5. Slide one of the three flaps over the guide of the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, and then push it right inside.  Punch the decorative edge. It’s a tight fit, and takes a little wiggling – that’s the technical term – but it does work. Repeat for the other two flaps.

6. Decorate! Go wild.

5. Add Tombow adhesive or Sticky Strip to the shaded areas as shown on the second template above. Assemble box.
Tip: The two side flaps go IN the box, and the front one goes on the outside.

6. With the lid closed, make a little pencil mark to show where the brad needs to go. Add brad. The brad not only keeps the lid closed, but it also acts as a reinforcement because it is going through three layers of card stock. No chance the box will come apart. ;)

Note: If you want to make the box I shared in last week’s post then follow steps 1 to 3 above, but remove the side flaps. Thanks again Jacquie Bell for the inspiration! Oh, and I know it’s kinda obvious but for the kids out there: don’t light the candle while it’s in the box. LOL. The box is for decoration only.

Alrighty, I hope you have lots of fun making these. Don’t forget to leave some comment love and let me know what you think.

Happy stamping,

Scallop Tag Topper Box

Published by under 3D projects | Mar 07 2014

Today I’m back to share the first of the swaps from our recent team day.
This one is a cute box – suitable for a tea light candle or similar small item – created with the brand new Scallop Tag Topper Punch.

Scallop Tag Topper Punch, by Stampin' Up!

This gorgeous creation is a real Wow – and I couldn’t help but add it to the lineup of my March events. It was designed and created by Jacquie Bell (thanks for letting me share it here, Jacquie!).

The Crumb Cake cardstock was scored with the Simply Scored board, and the top flap decorated with the brand new Scallop Tag Topper punch.

If you haven’t seen these new punches before, here’s a quick video from Stampin’ Up!:

The Scallop Tag Topper Punch created that cute cut-out where the brad holds the lid closed, and is generally used for attaching ribbon.

 The stamps are from the delightful Petite Petals bundle of matching stamps and punch. All new products in the 40 page seasonal Occasions Catalogue.

Friendship & Fun: Stampin Up Team Day

Published by under team | Mar 05 2014

Juliana_Simone_polaroid_sLast month we held a Stampin’ Up! Team Day and invited all the members in my group, the EurekaStampers, to come along for some fun.

It was a fabulous day! A great opportunity to catch up with old and new friends, and share our passion for papercrafting.

First up, we watched technique presentations put on by fellow team members. Our MC, Tracy, did an amazing job keeping us entertained as she introduced each of the presenters. Topics included: paper flowers and different ways to use the new Spiral Flower Die; working with vellum; effective uses for offcuts and die cut negatives; tags; how to use different tools; and many more inspirational techniques.

TeamDay

There were plenty of opportunities to learn.

We had a tool table set up where our newer members could try their hand at the envelope punch board, die cutting, the Stamp-a-ma-jig and more. Experienced demonstrators were there to offer a helping hand.

Our resident MDS/My Digital Studio guru, Jessica Williams, hosted an optional class on digital design, which was hugely popular.

The venue was the Holiday Inn at Melbourne Airport, so it was very handy for our interstate team members who flew in for the day. We are spread out all over Australia, so it’s not always easy to meet up in person, although the team forum and other wonders of technology certainly keep us connected.

A few months earlier we had invited the Stampin’ Up! Regional Business Manager to come along and were thrilled when Aaron said yes. We are so grateful that the day fitted in with his busy schedule, and that he could spend some time with us.

TeamDay1

Lunch was a help-yourself buffet supplied by the venue, and after that we spent the afternoon crafting. The make & take kits were in the bag that everyone received at registration – all cut and ready to go – and included a card using the Sale-a-bration Good As Gold kit, a sweet Watercolor Wonder 12×12 scrapbook page and an amazing 3D Card/Box project designed by Maureen. Love it!

One of the highlights for me was the amazing Show & Share display tables.

All attendees were encouraged to bring along a project or two, and the displays were… well, it’s hard to even put it in words. So many amazing, jaw-dropping, incredible creations. It was a feast for the eyes. And soooo inspiring! This day was just the thing many of us needed to get the mojo back, and I know quite a few of us have been creating up a storm since the Team Day.  teamday2

We finished off the day with more prizes, final lucky ticket giveaways and a Q&A session before we packed up and headed home. Counting down the days until our big annual 2014 Stampin’ Up! Convention which is in May.

Check back later this week when I’ll be sharing some of the cards and swaps that were shared on the day. A-mazing.
