Stationary Box

A friend of mine asked if I could give a donation for their schools upcoming "Bingo Fundraiser".  The winners of each bingo game will get a ticket to put in the drawing for the item of their choice.  This is my donation to the fundraiser.  It is a stationary box, a note pad and set of 6 cards w/envelopes.

I got the instructions for the box off of pinterest.  Here is the link to the INSTRUCTIONS I used.  I did use a larger box.  When you are selecting your box, be sure the total of the front and 2 sides do not go over the length of paper you are using.  I only had about 1/8" to wrap around the back, made for some frustrating moments.  The Designer Series Paper I used is retired.  It was an older pack of hostess only product.  The Concord Crush (purple) of the flowers is also retired.  SU! has a large selection of Designer Series Paper to choose from.  Since each pack comes with multiple sheets of coordinating designs, they are perfect for projects such as these.  Depending on the size of your boxes, you can get approximately 6 boxes from 1 pack of Designer Series Paper.

The flowers are from the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die.  I cut the die with 3 sheets of cardstock at once (Concord Crush, Bashful Blue, and Melon Mambo).  All three were colors from the DSP.  You can look in the catalog to see what colors are in each pack of DSP.  I also write them on the back of the pack for easy reference later.  I mix and matched the flowers for the two designs.  The flowers on the note pad are left plain.  Each layer on the box flower was put through the Big Shot with a different embossing folder.  Both flowers are held together with a Glitter Brad from the Soft Subtles Collection (retired--still available in Bold Brights).

The DSP is held to the box with Glue Stick.  The two halves of the box and the flowers are held together with Sticky Strip.

Products Used:
Paper:  Retired Cheerful Treat DSP, Retired Concord Crush, Bashful Blue, Melon Mambo
Accessories:  Glue Stick (#104045), Sticky Strip (#104294), Fun Flowers Die (#121812), Retired Soft Subtles Glitter Brads, Big Shot (#113439), Various Embossing Folders
