One of a Kind gift box

This is one of the projects we made at my recent One of a Kind class. Most of the ladies purchased their own stamp set to use at the class, which speeded things up a bit – but not enough as we ran over time again. I must stop planning too much to do!

The colour scheme is a big change for me. I found the inspiration on a stool in the bar at the Stampin’ Up!® training day in Sheffield. Someone suggested that perhaps I’d spent too long in the bar but I assure you that wasn’t the case; there was too much to do!

This is a cute little gift box, based on the one demonstrated by Monica at the Stampin' Up! Experience event in Sheffield. It’s a larger version of the simple 5-10-15-20 box and uses a whole sheet of A4 cardstock. Score along the length at 7cm, then turn the cardstock sideways and score along the width at 7cm, 14cm, 21cm and 28cm. Then follow the instructions for the 5-10-15-20 box shown here. What's nice about it is that you don't have to destroy it to open it - it is just held closed by the ribbon, which you can slide off.

The flower is from the largest flower in the One of a Kind stamp set. The big flower overwhelmed the box so we cut it down to the centre piece and punched out the centre to make room for the ribbon.
