According to this sized box, I needed to start with a 22.9cm x 22.9cm (9" x 9") cardstock square. Luckily for me, Stampin' Up! have the Falling In Love 12" x 12" mixed cardstock pack in the Occasions Catalogue. I chose to use Sahara Sand as my base colour, with Blushing Bride, Vanilla & Soft Sky as my accent colours.
Here is my box:
I have used the Butterfly sheet from the Falling In Love DSP for my belly band & a label from the Cupcake & Carousels Embellishment kit. The little flowers are embossed in gold & coloured with a blender pen. These are from the Falling For You stamp set & the little leaves are cut out using the Stylish Stems Framelit dies. All of these are found in the Occasions Catalogue.
When you remove the belly band the box opens to reveal a card in the box.
The card is made from 2 1/2 strips of half an A4 sheet of Vanilla cardstock scored at 10cm joined together making the final folded card 10cm x 10cm. On the first panel, I have used one of the new Vanilla coloured doilies & the So In Love stamp set, embossed in gold. I also dry embossed the back panel with the new Falling Petals embossing folder.
This card in a box would be perfect for a wedding gift & could easily be adapted to hold money or a gift card inside. I really enjoyed the challenge of creating this box & I hope I have inspired you to give one of these box cards a go.
