Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop. Our theme for this hop is anything but a card. I like this theme because it challenges my creativity and makes me think of projects beyond cards. For this challenge, I chose to create a treat box (or, gift box) using the awesome, awesome, awesome Stampin' Up! Pretty Perrennials Stamp Set and Perennial Petals Dies.
Stamp Set: Pretty Perennials, Here's a Card
Dies: Perennial Petals Dies, Stitched So Sweetly
Cardstock: White, So Saffron, Just Jade, Melon Mambo, Seaside Spray
Designer Series Paper: True Love DSP
Packaging: Love You Always Treat Box
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black Memento, Melon Mambo, Misty Moonlight, Daffodil Delight
Embellishments: 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots
Adhesives: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tear & Tape
Optional: Spray adhesive of your choice
Basic Supply Kit: paper trimmer, paper snips/scissors, bone folder
Take Your Pick (optional)
Stampin' Up! Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Stamparatus Foam Mat (optional, but highly recommended for Photopolymer stamps)
True Love DSP (3 1/2" x 10") for the belly band
True Love DSP (2 1/2" x 4") to cover the bottom, inside the box
Cardstock for Die Cuts
The instruction list is long but trust me, this is super easy and fun!
Cut the DSP as described above
Fold, burnish, and assemble the Love You Always Treat Box
Finger fold the True Love DSP belly band around the treat box and adhere together on the bottom of the box with Tear & Tape
Stamp two of the largest flowers in Melon Mambo ink on White cardstock
Stamp three of the medium size flowers in Misty Moonlight ink on White cardstock
Stamp two of the smallest flowers in Daffodil Delight ink on White cardstock
Die cut all flowers
Die cut two of the coordinating outline die for the largest flower from Melon Mambo cardstock
Die cut three of the coordinating outline dies for the medium flowers from Seaside Spray cardstock
Adhere the small (Misty Moonlight) and medium (Daffodil Delight) flowers and their coordinating frame dies together with small amounts of liquid adhesive, or, a spray adhesive if you have it, for a cleaner application
Adhere the two largest flowers together, slightly offset, with a Stampin' Dimensional in the middle
Apply an enamel dot to your flowers -- use the Magenta Madness dot for the pink flower group, Misty Moonlight for the blue flowers, and Bumblebee for the yellow flowers
Die cut two leaf branches from Just Jade cardstock
Die cut the largest Stitched So Sweetly frame dies from So Saffron cardstock
Adhere the two leaf branches behind the Stiched So Sweetly frame with small amounts of liquid adhesive, or, a spray adhesive if you have it, for a cleaner application
Arrange and adhere all of the flowers on top of the Stitched So Sweetly die, leaving room for the sentiment (alternatively, stamp the sentiment before arranging & adhereing the flowers)
Stamp the sentiment in the open area of the Stitched So Sweetly frame die cut in black ink (the sentiment on my project is from the Here's a Card Stamp Set)
Add three Just Jade enamel dots to the frame die cut
Adhere the decorated frame to the top of the box with Stampin' Dimensionals
Adhere the small piece of DSP to the inside of the Love You Always treat box, covering the bottom of the box
