Dragonfly Garden 2"x2"x5" Gift Box. Stampin Birds Showcase Blog Hop June 2021

  Good Morning Everyone,

Happy Saturday! As you may have guessed by now, on the last Saturday of every month we have the Stampin Birds Showcase Blog Hop.

I have this fabulous gift box to share with you. I just absolutely love the tone on stone stamping  and the slight contrast of the dragonflies looks fab. The box measures 2"x2"x5" so it's a great size for all sorts of goodies.


Soft Sea Foam Card Stock

1pc - 9 1/2" x 8 1/4"


Soft Succulent Card Stock



Take the Soft Sea Foam card stock and score as follows:-

Long Side - 2", 7" & 9"

Short Side - 2", 4", 6" & 8"

Lay the card stock down so that you have a thin strip running across the top and along the left hand side.

Ink up the tall flower image in soft sea foam and stamp it in full along the four long panels across the centre. Then add the top part of the stamp onto the square which is furthest left. As this is to top of the lid, you will need to stamp this upside down as you look at it. I popped a small scrap of paper over the skinny rectangle to make sure I didn't get any ink on that tab.

Once the ink is dry, fold and burnish the score lines well. Now cut away at the card stock so you are left with this...

Add seal+ to the tab on the left hand side, fold round and adhere to the opposite side, at the bottom, fold in the sides and back then adhere down the front panel to create the base. at the top, fold in the two sides and tuck the lid in.

Take your wink of stella pen and add lots to the flower images. Also add it to three small dragonflies cut from Soft Succulent card stock. 

\Stamp a large dragonfly in soft succulent ink onto a scrap of basic white and cut out with the punch.

Add all the dragonflies to the box with dimensionals .
