By The Tide Stationery Box

Stationery Box 'By The Tide'

By The Tide Box I'm celebrating the re-design of by sharing a step-by-step stationery box with a fabulous summer set 'By The Tide.' This was one of my SAB rubber stamp festival projects.

You can click on the PDF (left) and see the step-by-step photo directions. This is a cute purse-like box that will hold a set of cards.

And I'm sorry my feed service kicked out a January post the other day… Feedburner is no longer very reliable and I think my upgrades on my site caused Feedburner to overreact.

Don’t you just LOVE this box?  My downline Jackie made a set of stationery inside a gift box (pocketbook) similar to this at the holidays and it was the inspiration for the card/gift set for our SAB Festival.  The Springtime Vintage designer series paper will retire at the end of this month with the end of the Occasions Mini Catalog, so order yours now.

I have included the step-by-step photo instruction PDF on how this was made.  The ‘box’ part is made from a 9×12 piece of Designer Series paper and two 11 x 1 inch strips for the handle.  The 3D flower (awesome isn’t it?) is made with a half sheet of cardstock and the Flower Fun Bigz L Die (an exclusive Stampin’ Up! Sizzix Die) [#121812].

Your order online this month will earn you a ‘Class to Go’ featuring a set of cards and stationery box with a masculine design as well as have the opportunity to purchase ‘grab bags’ of products on special this month.
