Faceted Box is Deceivingly Easy to Make

A sweet little gift box using First Sight and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

I made this faceted box last fall, I think, and I’m just now getting around to posting it. It’s much easier to make than it looks. I don’t remember where I learned to make these – there are lots of different tutorials out there. And they’re all adorable! If I had to guess, I’d say it probably started with Sam Hammond, a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in the UK. She makes lots of little boxes.   Here’s what I made:   Here’s what I did: See diagrams below, and click on the images to see them full size. Cut and scored with …

Floral Boutique Mica Candle Gift

  Today’s project is another in a series of quick, easy, small, inexpensive gifts. The white, unscented candle came from the Dollar Tree (my local store where everything costs $1.)   Here’s what I made:   Here’s how I did it: I cut five 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″ pieces of Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper, and glued them to the sides and top of a White Gift Box. I took a length of Whisper White Organza Ribbon and colored it with a Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker. I let it dry for a while before tying it around the box. …

This one is a can of honey roasted cashews. Or you could eat the cashews and use the empty container for another small gift – cookies maybe?   Here’s what I made:   Here’s how I did it: The can came with a black lid, which prompted my choice of colors.
