While shopping recently I saw Carmel Stroopwafels, and I happen to know someone who really likes these, as she is a fellow demo with Stampin' Up! I couldn't just shove them in a carrier and hand them over - they would need to be presented in a girt package!
This demo I know likes good coffee, so adding a few Nespresso capsules to go with the Stroopwafels would be perfect - What more? What Else?
Well I know she's rather partial to Blackberry Bliss, and as it is a retiring product I thought I'd use up some of my stash. I also had some mini-buttons and thick bakers twine from 2015 SAB (I know - it needs using too!) In my scrap box I also had the spare bits from my Tin of Cards project and this "Hallo" seamed just right.
I made a mini box to hold the Nespresso capsules using a piece of A4 - Scored with the short side at the top at 3cm, 5.5cm, 16cm & 18.5cm, then on the long side at the same places, you have a nice big flap on the bottom to made a secure and solid box.
I used my circle framelits to cut 5 circles in the top od the box - which is actually the square which has scoring on all four sides, to do this with the big shot I used the magnetic plate and had to fold over some of the score lines so it would fit thought the Big shot.
For the bigger box to hold the Stroopwafels and to take the mini tray of capsules I had to do some thinking and some maths! I could have easily made it from 2 sheets of 12x12, but I do like to be frugal - so I used my Diagonal Scoreboard - sorry another item retiring, I do love this tool and will miss it from the catalogue in future - here is the maths bit
The lid was 2 pieces of card cut to 12.5 cm x 22.5cm and scored at 9.7cm & 19.4cm, and scored again on the flat side at 3 cm, now this will leave you with a small hole in the middle of your box lid, this gives you space to put your ribbon through and I secured my ribbon to a spare piece of card which I glued to the inside of the box. cover said lid as you wish, I used my flower punches and the leafly bit from my Bird Builder as I was in a hurry, otherwise I would have used my Botanical Builder Dies.
So in total to produce this box I used:
1 x A4 Card Stock
1 x 12x12 DSP
1 x 12x12 Color Me Irresistible DSP (hence why I made the lid this way - to keep the pattern going the same way)
To decorate I raided the scraps box, some thick bakers twine and buttons!
I hope this all makes sense - if anything is unclear do let me know and I'll do my best to make more sense!
