Elegant Cubes

Sometimes you just need a project that you can put together in a short amount of time as you have a last minute gift you need or perhaps you’re working in bulk. Stampin’ Up! sell some gorgeous pre-made boxes ready for you to construct and decorate in any way you please. Today’s project uses the Simply Classic Treat Boxes which come with a white bottom and gold cube top, perfect as they are if you don’t wish or have time to decorate.

As the Gold co-ordinates perfectly with the Simply Elegant Designer Series Paper, I used that to decorate the panels on the top lidded section of the boxes. TIP: To get the Designer Series Paper to fit snug on the top panel of the box, you will need to punch a hole in the centre and feed the ribbon tag through. I show you how to do this in my tutorial below.

On the first sample, I made an error and used a ‘Thanks’ sentiment from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set – I like how it looks, but I wanted to make sure I used everything from the same suite / bundle, so in my video I have used a ‘For You’ from the Elegantly Said stamp set. I love both of them, so just shows how versatile you can be!

To add a little more co-ordination, I included a small ribbon of Gold Trim and a Gold Metallic Pearl – love it. The best bit? This was made in approx. 15 minutes – great for bulk production!
