Gable Box Project

Hope you had a great weekend and that where ever you're located, you're experiencing nice weather.  The weekend weather was delightful  in Georgia and  it's great to have warm, sunny days with the dogwood trees and azaleas blooming!   Lots of time was spent outdoors and little time crafting, so my Monday Mishmash is being posted a little later than usual.  Yesterday afternoon when starting to set-up my craft table, I decided the "creative chaos" needed to be organized before proceeding any further!  As is typical, the time seemed to fly by and it was time to move onto other chores...but the project plan was in place and ready to be prepared today.

The project is a Gable Box cut using my Silhouette Cameo, however, the Stampin' Up! Mini Milk Carton Bigz L die for the Big Shot can be used in place of the gable box.  Later this week, I'll be attending a luncheon for my friend's 90 year old mother and thought the box would be perfect packaging for her favorite Lindt  Lindor Truffles!


After cutting the box using Daffodil Delight card stock (CS), Floral District Designer Series Paper (DSP) was used to create a band to encircle the box portion.  The band is held in place using SNAIL adhesive.  The phrase and butterfly from the Bloomin' Marvelous Sale-A-Bration stamp set was stamped onto Whisper White CS using Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin' Ink and cut using the Labels Collection Framelits with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  Using the reverse side of the Floral District DSP, one butterfly was cut using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and the other using the Bitty Butterfly Punch.  The label and butterflies were attached using Stampin' Dimensionals.  Whisper White 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon was cut to loop through the holes in the gable section but in the photo it covered the butterflies so it was removed but will be used after filling the box with the candy.

  Hooray!  The big brown truck just delivered a goodie box from Stampin' Up so I'm off to see what arrived!!!  New projects await.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check in later this week for "Creation Thursday".
Until then, have a good week!
