Today I’m sharing a project that I presented at a stamping event in November, and that my downline requested we make at our next meeting. It’s a Sliding Treat Box with a Twist Pop-Up Panel Card attached.
Here’s what I made:
The card opens to show fireworks and a panel with 2017, and the box slides open to reveal the goodies inside.
I made the one for my presentation (above) to fit a package of Reese Cups.
To simplify things, I made the one for our team meeting (below) the size of a standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card. I gave this one to my sister-in-law with a gift card inside, But 9 Hershey’s Nuggets fit nicely.
Here’s how I did it:
Click here for instructions on building the sliding box. Begin where it says “Score 4 times from the edge of all four sides,…” You will start with a piece of Basic Black card stock cut to 8-1/4″ x 9-1/2″, and the score lines should be every 1/2″. The cover is Basic Black card stock cut to 5-9/16″ x 11″
Click here for instructions on building the Twist Pop Up Panel Card. Build the entire card with Basic Black card stock, and the decorative pieces are Gold Foil Sheets.
Here’s how I did the extra decoration:
Cut 4 pieces of Basic Black card stock to 2-1/2″ x 2-1/4″. Stamp the largest firework from the It’s A Celebration stamp set in Versamark ink onto each piece, then heat emboss in gold. Adhere one of these to the gold foil piece on each section of the panel. Using the Large Numbers Framelits, cut out 2017 from a piece of Gold Foil Sheet. Adhere the numbers to the panel as shown.
Cut two pieces of Basic Black card stock to 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″. Use the folded up mechanism to trace the point onto each piece. Stamp assorted fireworks from the same stamp set in Versamark ink onto both pieces, then heat emboss in gold. Adhere these to the two gold foil pieces on the inside of the mechanism.
Cut one piece of Basic Black card stock to 3-3/4″ x 5″.Stamp assorted fireworks from the same stamp set in Versamark ink onto both pieces, then heat emboss in gold. Adhere this to the gold foil piece on the front of the card base.
Cut one piece of Basic Black card stock to 1″ x 4-1/4″. Stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set in Versamark ink and heat emboss it in gold. Adhere it to the front of the card as shown.
Adhere the back of the finished card to the top of the sliding box cover – I like to cover the line where the two ends of the cover overlap. Put a treat inside the box. Then tie a piece of gold cord from the Baker’s Twine Trio Pack around it.
I also made a gift tag by cutting a piece of Gold Foil Sheet to 2″ x 4″, scoring it at 2″, and folding it in half. I punched the top corner with the 1/8″ Circle Punch and threaded another piece of the gold twine through the hole to tie it to the box.
Here’s what I used:
