3D Project/Big Shot/Gift Item Class/Club - Wednesday, July 31

Here are the projects we'll be making at the 3D Project/Big Shot/Gift Item Club tonight!!

Thanks so much to Jane Staples, our guest artist this month, for these fabulous creations!!

Jane Staples, our guest artist!!

I think she really outdid herself!!

Check out what she came up with!!  It's a fun wine topper and treat box!!
Here's a close-up of the wine topper.  You could put some long, narrow mints in this wine pouch - it would make a fabulous hostess gift!!  You could also make a more narrow version and add it to a bottle of water with some flavoring for the water inside the pouch!

We start with an 11" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock.  Score it on the long side at 4" and 4 1/2", then score it at 1/2", 1", 4 1/2" and 5" along the shorter side.  Then cut along the 1" and 4 1/2" score lines down to the first score line, leave the little square tab between the 4" and 4 1/2" score lines, then cut out to the 1/2" and 5" score lines.  Slit those little square tabs so that they will fold in.  Then fold on all remaining score lines to create the box and attach the edges with sticky strip to the back of the box.  Round the corners of the top of the pouch with the corner rounder punch.  I do have more detailed instructions that Jane found on Stampin Connection.  I'm happy to send them to you - just email me at
We added a piece of the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper to the front of the pouch, then added a Window Collection Framelit piece in Silver Glimmer paper, an Apothecary Accent framelit piece in Basic Black and then stamped "For You" from the Layered Labels set and punched it out with the Large Oval punch!
Finally, we punched a circle in the top of the pouch with the 1 3/8" circle punch and then added a scalloped ring around the circle using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch and the 1 3/8" circle punch, then put it on the wine bottle!   How cool is that!!

Our next project is a fun box with a coordinating Designer Series Paper lid!!

The box bottom (I used Basic Black cardstock) is make with an 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" square piece of paper.  Score it at 3/4", 2 3/4', 5 3/4" and 7 3/4" along both sides of the paper, cut out the corners and assemble the box with sticky strip.  You can email me for additional instructions on how to make the box bottom!!  It is so simple!!  And... once you learn how to make one, you can make many more in various sizes!!
The lid was made with the Modern Medley Designer Series paper using a 7 1/2" x 7 /2" square piece of paper.  Score it at 1', 2 1/8" on all 4 sides, cut the corners out and assemble the box top with sticky strip.  We added a Deco Labels Collection framelit piece of Silver Glimmer paper, then stamped "just for you" from the Label Love stamp set and punched it out with the coordinating Artisan Label punch.  These items (the stamp set and punch) are bundled for a 15% savings on both items!

Then, check out what's inside the box!!

We added 3 mini pouches that can each hold a Ghirardelli chocolate!!   These pouches are made from 4" x 6" pieces of Designer Series Paper.  Score the paper at 1 1/2" and 1 3/4" along the long sides and 1/2" and 1" along the short sides.  Then remove the corners, fold along the score lines and assemble the pouches.  Last step, insert the chocolates!! 

Please feel free to email me at for additional info on how to put these projects together!!  In addition, we'd love to have you join us for a 3D Project/Big Shot/Gift Item Class at anytime - this class meets the last Wednesday of every month!!

Happy Stamping!!
