I love to stamp, I love to create, and I love spending time with my crafty friends! A new stamping technique that I've never tried before? Oh! the laundry can wait!...
Besides creating, I keep busy with my two very active little munchkins, as well as working part time as a dental hygienist. And, I love hanging out with my super smart doctor husband once in a while, too!:)
Needing a quick and easy favor? Try this 2-4-6-8 box. Simply take a 6 x 8 1/2" of card stock, score horizontally at 2, 4, 6, and 8 inches -- you should have a 1/2" tab sticking left on edge. Now rotate 180 degrees and score at 2" on one long side. Then, cut on the short score lines -- up to the long one -- so you can fold those tabs in at the bottom to form your box. Next, crease on all score lines with bone folder. Stamp design on outside of box -- here I used the Circle Circus stamp set. Finally, take the scallop square punch and punch out a window on one side. Adhere a 2x2 pc of Light Window sheets behind the window. Fold the box together -- adhering the walls first, then fold up the bottom tabs, and glue all together with the Tombow Multi glue. Fill with your Dad's favorite treats, fold together like a milk carton, punch two holes in the top with the Crop-o-dile, and thread a red 1/4" grossgrain ribbon through. Add the little Happy Father's Day tag -- using the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, the large oval, and scalloped oval punches. Add the star with a silver brad in the center, to finish it off.
This is a great little box that can be adapted for any occasion.
Here are all three projects we will be doing at my upcoming Father's Day/Masculine cards Class.
