Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is Fantastic Fun Folds and 3D Projects. We really hope that you enjoy & will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
This month’s theme is all about fun folds & 3D projects. With the holidays knocking on our doors, I thought I would get a jump start on some holiday gifts. For anyone who knows me, knows I love lavender. I am still in denial that summer has come to an end even though I was out all weekend winterizing the yard. With everyone washing their hands with a little more intensity these days, I thought lavender hand cream would make a great gift in the cold winter months ahead.
Step By Step Tutorial-
Cut In Good Taste DSP 7 x 8 ¼
Score on the long side (8 ¼) at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″; burnish the score lines with a bone folder
Score on the short side (7) at 2″; burnish the score lines with a bone folder
Cut on the vertical lines (2, 4, 6, 8) up to the 2″ score line. Cut off the tiny rectangle & discard
Apply Tombow liquid glue to the ¼” scored area, then fold over to seal & create the box
Glue the bottom flaps together using Tombow liquid glue. Use the fat end of a bone folder to help press the flaps together & give them a good seal.
Cut Hand Penned DSP 4 ½ x 4 ½
Score 1 ¼ on all 4 sides; burnish the score lines with a bone folder
Cut the vertical lines on 2 of the sides up to the score line; miter the edges on the 1 ¼” squares
Use Tombow liquid glue to glue the edges to form the lid
Creating the Lavender Bouquet
Die cut the “lavender” from the Harvest dies using watercolour paper.
Water colour the “lavender” using the medium round tip water painter brush using Highland Heather & Old Olive inks.
Once the paper is dry, snip apart to create 3 lavender sprigs. Then, using Tombow liquid glue, build the lavender bouquet.
Cut the linen thread to your desired lengh x2. Pull the threads apart, then tie into a “messy” bow around the lavender bouquet. Trim to desired length.
Adhere the bouquet to the DSP box
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on November 10th. Our theme will be “Home for the Holidays” when our Design Team creates a project to celebrate the upcoming holidays. Until then, have fun in your craft space.
