Stampin' Up UK, Flowering Flourishes Card Gift Set - Tutorial

Stampin' Up UK, Flowering Flourishes Card Gift Set - Tutorial



As those of you who read my blog regullarly will know I've been making a few card gift sets recently which have gone down really well with my friends and the tutorials have gone down really well with fellow crafters.

So today I made another set, I used the Flowering Flourishes stamp set which I've neglected a bit recently but it is so pretty - I loved the mix of cards I made - come back to tomorrow to see them!




Start with a peice of A4 card stock.

Score along the long side at 12cm, 13.5cm, 25.5cm and 27cm.

Then cut the sheet of card stock in half along the short side at 10.5cm.

Burnish along the score lines and it will look something like this.



Cut along the score lines highlighted in white in the photo above, it will look as below.


Add sticky strip along the two edges shown below and the fold up the two 'boxes'.


You will have two boxes like in the picture below. Put these to one side at the moment.


Then cut two peices of matching card stock which are 12.2cm wide and 21cm long and score along the base of each peice at 3.5cm and add two peices of sticky strip as shown in this picture.


Over lap the scored ends and stick the two peices together.


Then using sticky strip again, attached the two box peices, one either side of the base, as the base as this picture below illustrates.


I then punched two small holes at the top of each side of flap - I forgot to take a picture of this - sorry but you can see it in the photo below - just above where I've popped in my matching cards.


Fold the box close and tie shut with some ribbon, I've used the georgeous Chevron Ribbon in Wisteria Wonder, pop over to my online store if you would like to by a reel HERE. You can decorate the box however you please - I've used the flowering flourishes to match the cards.
