Product Spotlight: Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies

Posted on: May 8, 2018

I borrowed the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies from my downline Christina recently so I could make thank-you gifts for my stampers’ club last month (it was my month to host!). Wow, do I love these sweet little boxes! They are SUPER cute and make a perfect gift box for two of the Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes. (Those narrow note cards make me feel like I’m about to present an Oscar!!).

 

Well, the bad news is that I assembled a bunch of these boxes incorrectly, and so they turned out the wrong size. However, I have two pieces of good news to share. First is that I now have the knack of assembling them correctly and that I’m going to share it with you, so you don’t make the same mistake I did. As for the second piece of good news, I’ll save that for the end of the post.

To make a box, you will need to cut two of the box shapes with the die. If you want to stamp or decorate the box, do so now, before assembling.

Burnish all your score lines and flip one of the box sides to be upside down.

Use Tear and Tape or your other favourite heavy-duty adhesive on one of the long flaps.

Attach the two box sides together. Note that the small flaps on both the top and bottom are still just a single layer, while the long flap on the side is now a double layer.

Apply tape on the other long flap.

Fold over to assemble the box.

And the second piece of good news … it turns out that the ‘wrong-size’ boxes I made are the PERFECT size to hold a Kit-Kat bar! Haha! My stampers’ club members had fun choosing the box that suited them; the one with pretty cards, or the one with chocolate 😀

 

While the narrow note cards are continuing into the new annual catalogue, the box framelits dies are not, so if you’d like to try making these charming little boxes, you need to act quickly! You can make an order through my online store (use hostess code 2RY7EJZA), or contact me to place your order.

Happy Stampin’!
