Fancy Favor Double Up Box + Blossom Punch Tip

I had resisted buying the Fancy Favor die. I didn't need it! Until of course I saw this box (and another) at Leadership Conference. This was on one of the display shelves, and my friend Robin Armbrecht must have spied it too because she designed a similar box for a joint group meeting earlier this month. Here's the version I made with my Stamp Club this month.

I love, love, love coordinating products and the Everyday Enchantment Designer Paper and Brads from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure and coordinating Fresh Vintage stamp set are just yummy together! You can get all three products for FREE when you host a qualifying party during Sale-A-Bration. There's still one month left, so contact me soon to get your party scheduled!

The box is actually TWO boxes cut from the Fancy Favor die. The first box from Very Vanilla cardstock is adhered together normally. The second box, cut from Everyday Enchantment Designer Paper, has the bottom cut off. The bottom end sides are pinched together and secured with sticky strip. The inverted designer paper box fits snugly over the cardstock box. A hole in the top with ribbon and the flower are the perfect coordinating accents.

Check out this tip for the flower! Pure genius from Dawn Olchefske! Use three punches from the Modern Label Punch to layer on the new Blossom Punch from the Occasions Mini. It makes the perfect layer! And then the Peach Parfait flower is stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock and punches with the Triple Layer Blossom Bouquet Punch! Just line up the line of dots inside the flower with the "petal" openings on the back side of the punch.

TFS, Julie! I just made a very similar ;-) sample to show my stampers at my next camp. We're making Easter baskets with the die, but certainly wanted to share your creation, too.

Ohmygosh, I totally love Dawn's layering tip! This paper is one of my all-time SU favorites, so I'm seriously loving this project – thanks so much for the inspiration!
