It’s a party! My presentation at the Spring Stamp-Along last week was all about party favors, food, and decor for five different types of party. One type was a birthday party for an adult. I haven’t seen the Over the Hill birthday theme used in a long time, so I decided to go with that. I used black and silver for all the projects. The Five For All stamp set has funny birthday sentiments perfect for this theme.
Today I’m sharing a box that could hold a small gift or a party favor. Don’t you just love the Mini Pizza Boxes? And they’re carrying over to the new catalog! Unfortunately, the Five For All stamp set is not. It’s one of the products that will be retiring, so it will be available through May 31, or while supplies last. See all the retiring products HERE.
Here’s what I made:
Here’s what I did:
Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:
- Silver Foil Sheet cut to 3″ x 3″
- Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
Stamped with the Five For All stamp set:
- sentiment in Versamark ink onto the Basic Black CS square, then heat embossed in silver
Painted using Archival Basic Black ink refill:
- the outside of the box – let it dry completely before adhering anything to it
- NOTE: I used an old paintbrush. The ink did stain it, but did not hurt it at all.
- NOTE: I used an alcohol pad to remove any ink from the inside of the box.
Assembled the project:
- folded the box together
- adhered the sentiment onto the Silver Foil Sheet piece using Tear & Tape
- adhered the Silver Foil Sheet to the top of the box using Stampin’ Dimensionals, being sure to leave a “tunnel” for the ribbon
- ran ribbon under the Silver Foil Sheet, wrapped it around the box, and tied it on the side
- applied Metallic Enamel Shapes (silver dots) to the top of the box around the Silver Foil Sheet, to resemble a marquis
