Welcome to the July 2019 edition of the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop!  You are currently visiting Angie McKenzie from the USA.  The theme this month is FAVORITE DSP!


If you haven't guessed by now, my favorite color is green so when I saw the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper, I about died!!!  It is so gorgeous... and the featured Mossy Green is just so lush.  There are also a few other packets of DSP that I love, too, like the Come Sail Away (the striped paper below) and Pressed Petals due to the textile feel of so many of the papers in this current Annual Catalog.

Aren't these boxes cute?!?  The amazing thing about them is that you can make a bunch of them and then stack them FLAT until you're ready to use them.  And then they're so easy to put together...  fold and tuck the flaps and viola!  You have a box.

When I saw these boxes in April, I was ecstastic!  It was like walking down memory lane of days gone by when I was working as a paralegal in downtown Athens, GA.  These cute little boxes are mini versions of a carryout box used by my favorite little lunch spot, Cookies and Company, during the 1980s.  Boy, do I miss that quaint, little vintage store (sadly, it's no longer around) that used to be under The Chocolate Shoppe!

And look what else I enjoyed making with this beautiful DSP...

A Box for Mini Cards!

Modeled after a box that I had laying around the house, I tore the box apart so I could recreate it specific to the dimensions of the 3" x 3" cards in my previous blog post (click here to read).
My prototypes of the boxes each used a piece of copy paper.
Thankful to be using a prototype, I was able to make adjustments as needed.

I'm looking forward to making quite a few more of these boxes in all sorts of sizes!

The gift card was created using scraps from the boxes which were too big to just toss.  So why not make a card to gift the cards and card box with?!?  A 1" x 12" strip of DSP was adhered completely around the card... only adhered at the front end and the inside end as close to the edge as possible.  A another scrap was the perfect size to make as a tag to slide into the band.  A 2" square was cut from the DSP scraps, quartered, and adhered with Adhesive Foam Strips.  Such a simple card with so much potential for many gift giving occasions.
