Embossing Boxes

You won’t believe how simple this is.  The WOW factor is huge – at least I think so!

  • I {Heart} Hearts, Teeny Tiny Wishes, You and Moi stamp sets
  • Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery and Whisper White card stock
  • Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery Classic ink pads
  • Bashful Blue, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon
  • Medium Jewelry Tag punch
  • Big Shot, Matchbox die and Vintage Wallpaper Textured Embossing Folder

Check out that ribbon!  It won’t be available much longer – and for sure it won’t be available after June 30 – so if you like it, order it now!  That Embossing Folder is a 2010-2011 Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and catalog Sneak Peak and it is very, very cool.  Every embossing folder that comes along is more awesome than the last one and this Vintage Wallpaper is no exception.

These little boxes are perfect favors – you almost don’t need the ribbon.  The depth of the embossing folder is enough embellishment, so these would go together very quickly.  I’ve only embossed the band that wraps around the box base.  A few quick tips:

  • crease the fold lines heavily BEFORE embossing
  • insert the band with the wider of the two end pieces in first
  • apply adhesive to the narrower end which remains outside the embossing folder

The box base doesn’t need any adhesive, and the white panel is cut to fit inside.  You could cut all these pieces and then have an assembly line to make a lot of little favors in a very short time.
