November Club Project #1

So the first project we made in club last night was this little gift box.  I thought it would be practical this time of year to talk about how to make a custom box to fit your presents!  This one was made using the Simply Scored Tool out of 2 sheets of card stock cut to 7 x 9 and scored at 1 1/2" all around.  The top was then scallop punched.  oh...and the top was also scored using a shim.  Connie Stewart gets the credit for the idea of making a shim to use with the Simply Scored Tool to help boxes go together like a snap!

The other technique that I wanted to show my stampin' ladies was how to make a paper ribbon.  The seem to be in vogue right now...  Thie one was made with the extra large oval punch and some of the Snow Festival DSP.

Also, the lid of lid of the box was stamped with the new bold snowflake single stamp using the Illuminate ink that can be found in the Holiday catalog.

As for what's inside the box, well that's club project #2 and you'll just have to wait for tomorrow for that;)
