Silver Mini Gable Boxes

You may have missed them, peeking out from the side of page 13 in the Occasions catalogue. The Silver Mini Gable Boxes are just too adorable, and so versatile!

The picture above is the one on page 12 of the catalogue; it shows the box having been embossed with one of the new Petal Pair Embossing Folders, then decorated with products in the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit. There’s a whole Sweet Soiree Suite of products that coordinate, but you can use anything you want to decorate these Silver Mini Gable Boxes!

CONGRATULATIONS BOX

I decided to make mine as a ‘congratulations’ gift box, using the Amazing Congratulations stamp set, also in the Occasions catalogue.Silver Mini Gable Boxes

DETAILS

First I created a wrap to cover the bottom portion of the box. I used the beautiful Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Next, I made a rosette with the same pattern.

Making the rosette is easy; simply cut 2, 2″ strips of DSP, and use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score each one at 1/4″, the whole length of the paper. Fold on the score lines, accordion style. Once folded, use Tear & Tape to attach the 2 strips together at both ends, creating a circle. Push the middle of the folded circle down, creating the rosette shape. You’ll need Hot Glue to put in the middle of the circle, and attach a 2″ punched circle of either cardstock or DSP in the middle, on both the front and back.  It takes a minute for the glue to set, then you’re good to go!

The Amazing Congratulations stamp is a 3 step stamp; first stamp the outline in the lightest colour. Next, stamp the 1st set of letters in the medium colour, and the last set of letters in the darkest colour. I used Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry ink pads, and stamped on Whisper White cardstock.  Then use the darkest ink (Rich Razzleberry) to stamp the sentiment underneath the ‘congratulations’. The brushstroke through the words is stamped in Powder Pink ink. To finish off the label, I added some Enamel Shapes in Subtles.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to stamp and create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project; whether a 3D item, or a card, or scrapbook page - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you stamp and create with me! :) If you're in Canada, you can Join My Team as a SU! demonstrator. If you're in the Great Vancouver area, you're welcome to join my classes - we always have fun!

  1. Cute box! And your rosette instructions are wonderful. I think the instructions I had when I made my first ones called for different adhesives, and it was almost impossible with only two hands. Hot glue is definitely the key!

    1. Thanks, Susan! I really loved the pre-scored ones in the Holiday kit – so easy! But making them isn’t that difficult, and I love the festive look. Glad you enjoyed my project!

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
