PATTERN FOR 3x3 BOX ON THE WATCH IT WEDNESDAY VIDEO!

Here is the pattern for the 3x3 box featured in my Watch It Wednesday Video!

You need to cut your card stock to 6" x 5 1/2". Put your 6" side across the bottom of you paper cutter and score at 2 3/8" and 3 5/8". Then flip your card stock and put the 5 1/2" on the bottom edge of the paper cutter and score 1 1/8" in from both sides. Then cut the score lines on your 6" side up to the 1 1/8" score line on both sides. AND THERE IS YOUR BOX! Refer to the video for assembly instructions.


Want to add a lid to your box? Here is the pattern for that.

Cut your card stock 3 1/4" x 2 3/4". Put the 2 3/4" side on the bottom of your paper cutter and score at 1/2" and 1 3/4". You will tape the 1/2" side to the inside or outside (whichever you prefer) back of your box.

THIS IS SUPER EASY AND SO VERSATILE!!

MY WATCH IT WEDNESDAY VIDEO BOXES!

Here are photos of the samples of the box I shared with you on yesterday's Watch It Wednesday Video!

For this first box I used the Sweet Summer Sale-A-Bration stamp set, and I added a ribbon handle and filled it with 3x3 cards.


I used the embedded embossing technique for this box, and filled it with some 3x3 post-it note pads and a mini pen.


This is the box I made during the video. I have added a little sentiment to the front of the box. I also used the Paisley Petals Designs Series Paper, which is going to be on special in April. Be sure to check back on my blog for the details on the special, as well as the little "trick" I used with my punch for the sentiment.


This is the Easter box. I used the Easter Blessings stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog and filled it with jelly beans!


This box has a lid added to it. I used the Beautiful Butterflies die for the Big Shot and added some rhinestone jewels.

CUPCAKES AND CIRCLES!

As promised, here's another Build a Cupcake Punch card!


I not only used the Build a Cupcake Punch for this card, but I added some dimension to it with some punched circles! I love the Stampin' Up! circle punches, and they layer so nicely with one another. Sticking a cupcake on them just seemed like the right thing to do.

The awesome Stampin' Up! punches make this a very quick and easy card! Be sure to check out all the Stampin' Up! punches on pages 200-203 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog!

YOU GOTTA LOVE ICE CREAM!



To make this fun little card I used the Build a Cupcake Punch, item #121807 for $16.95 available in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I used the top of the cupcake to make the ice cream scoops! This punch is definitely a "must have". It is so easy to use, and who doesn't love ice cream and/or cupcakes?

Stop back by tomorrow and see a cupcake card made with this punch.
