Think Outside the Box…..Box Series (Part 1)

Ok……..the first time I looked through the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog when I came to page 37 and found the Framelits – Envelope Liners Dies I had an instant A-ha moment.  I thought WOW! I could make boxes with these!!!  You’ll laugh at me because I wasn’t even thinking they are cool and would be an easy way to dress up and coordinate an envelope with the card, my first thought was OOOOOH boxes.  Lol!


Framelits - EL Die_Box Med


After I made my first box using the smallest die I was hooked and set about making a second one using the medium die (pictured above).  Then I thought “I should really share this cool idea with you”.  Well……..that led to making my latest series of videos “Think Outside the Box…….Box Series”.  Below is my first video which shows you how to create the basic box.  I hope you’ll come back and check out Part 2 which shows how to create a box top for any size box you have.  Then in Part 3 I’ll show you the coolest box topper that you can recreate using any paper you may have.



Stampin’ Supplies Used:

  • STAMP:  None
  • PAPER:  Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Soft Suede, Modern Medley Designer Series Paper
  • INK:  None
  • MISC.:  Framelits Dies–Envelope Liners; Bigz L Die–Gift Bow (both in the new Holiday Catalog)


Sparkly Hugs, Carol
