Welcome to our Stampin Dreams Blog Hop. Today we are featuring mothers! We hope to "wow" you with many beautiful projects and inspire you to spoil a few woman in your life!
Based on what I have been creating lately, I'd say my love language is showering people with little, unexpected gifts. I just love these little acetate card boxes. They are meant to hold 3" x 3" cards but you can see that they hold tea bags and a chapstick beautifully.
I used the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper to create a lining for the inside of the box. The sentiment on the front is from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set and fits well for all the mothers that I know. Mothers are indeed incredible! They balance so much. In my opinion, Mother's Day is the perfect time to encourage them to take some time for themselves and pamper themselves a bit! What better way than a cup of tea and new chapstick in a yummy flavor! Remember, you can spoil any mother in your life- friends that are mothers, the bus driver, your mail carrier, and neighbors! The possibilities are endless.
To make the lining, cut your patterned paper to 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" and score the short side at 3/4" and 3 3/4". Then turn your paper and score the long side at 2 1/2" and 3 1/4". Fold on all the score lines and burnish with your bone folder. Then just snip off the two little rectangles as shown in the photo below.
To assemble the box, you fold on the score lines. Then drop in the liner, add your teabags and chapstick and you are almost done. Tie a ribbon around the front. Blackberry Bliss is used in my sample and add your sentiment on a piece of Basic White die cut with a die from the Tasteful Labels dies. Viola! You have a beautiful "little something" to shower the people you love with love!
I hope you will hop along to see the wonderful ideas that the other talented crafters created in honor of Mothers. You are sure to be inspired.
