Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Pick a Bundle

Welcome to the September 2019 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop! You'll see projects from around the world--but I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so any prices are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month, and our theme for today is Pick a BUNDLE! My project today features the It Starts with Art BUNDLE from the Follow Your Art Suite of products. {you'll find all Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll near the bottom of the post!}

I used the It Starts with Art BUNDLE along with the Stampin' Up! Mini Shipping Boxes to create a treat-filled showcase of the 2019-2021 In Colors! I folded down the front and side flaps and adhered them with a little bit of Tombow Multipurpose Glue. I left the back flap up to use as a backdrop for my decorations. And I made sure a few of those die cut pieces straddled over the crease of that back flap, to give it more support to stay upright.

There are 5 sections inside the box, that I created using the 2019-2021 Designer Series Paper (DSP) Assortment. The sheets are 6"x6" and I cut them to 4"x5", then scored 2-1/4" from each edge of the 5" sides. That gave me little dividers that were 4" wide, 2-1/4" tall, and about 1/2" deep.

I used SNAIL Adhesive to stick each of the sections to each other, but I did not adhere the front or back of the DSP sections to the box at all. They just sort of float in there and take up all the space. You can see from the top, I have a little cardstock "bobbin" of the coordinating color, with some ribbon of the coordinating color, a Fun Size Heath candy bar wrapped in coordinating DSP, and a strip of coordinating color 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots.

Here's more of a close up view of a single section. The cardstock "bobbin" is actually adhered to the back of the coordinating color section with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. That way the top of the "bobbin" sits up high enough to see it above the section. Also, I was able to use the leftover 2"x6" piece from the 6"x6" DSP sheet I used for the section, to wrap the candy bar. I just trimmed it to 2"x3-1/2", wrapped it around, and it seems to fit just fine!

I decorated the front of the box with pieces I stamped and cut apart from a saying in the It Starts with Art stamp set. The ruffled "ribbon" across the bottom front is a piece that was cut with the Arts & Crafts Dies. The die is meant to line up with the end of a piece of cardstock to give it a ribbon edge, but I trimmed it out at the few points where it was connected so it just looks like wavy ribbon.

There's still a bit of room in each section that you could fill with little buttons in the coordinating cardstock, using the Arts & Crafts Dies. There are several little buttons included in the dies, and they have embossed details on them. I just ran out of time to do that for my post today, as I was struggling with some technical difficulties with both my computer, and my internet. This would make an adorable little gift for your favorite crafter!
