By the time you are reading this, I will be at Onstage. This is Stampin' Up!'s twice a year convention held for us demonstrators to get together and enjoy each others company while getting a sneak peek at all the lovely new goodies coming soon. The April event is particularly exciting as its when we get our hands on the new Annual catalogue for 2019-2020. We also get to see what new In Colours are coming out, these last two years. Sadly it also means we say goodbye to the In Colours for 2017-2019, I'll be sad to see them go (but I am stocked up with card and ink refills of my favourites 😉)
Anyway, after the event a large group of us (23 this year!) from the team known as Julies Jems get together for a meal before heading our various ways. These are the gifts I've made for each of my fellow Jems.
These little boxes are a doddle to make, but there is a lot of scoring involved! I chose to use Real Red and Rich Razzleberry card to match the foil on the little heart shaped chocolates. I also used Gold Foil and Very Vanilla, plus a scrap Granny Apple Green.
For the box body you need
Card: 6 7/8" x 6 7/8" scored at 1/2"; 1"; 1 1/2"; 2" on all four sides. Theres more scoring but check out the video, easier to explain than type out here 😉
For the box cover you need:
Card: 6 7/8" x 3 15/16" scored on the short side at 1/2" on both edges. Then on long side score at 1/2" and 2 15/16", turn and score at 3 7/16" and at 2 15/16" JUST BETWEEN THE TWO SCORE LINES.
These measurements are pretty awkward to explain, but as I said, if you watch the YouTube video below, it'll all make sense
In metric, as follows
Box body: 17.5cm x 17.5cm, scored at 1.3; 2.5; 3.8; 5cm
Box cover: 17.5cm x 10cm, scored on short side at 1.3 on both edges. Then on long side score at 1.3 and 7.4. Turn then score at 8.7 and 7.4 JUST BETWEEN THE SCORE LINES
For the decorative layers:
Gold foil measuring: 2 3/4" x 2 1/4" (6.9cm x 5.7cm)
Very Vanilla measuring: 2 1/2" x 2" (6.3cm x 5cm)
