Method Monday Box Challenge


Every Monday the InStyle Stamps Design Team is going to share a tutorial, technique or tip. This week it is my turn to share my "method" and one of my favorite non-card projects is to make a box out of cardstock. I made my first box over a year ago and became familiar with them again this past October via Cammie (she has an excellent tutorial on her blog that you can find HERE).

Of course I had to make mine using Suzie Q., I *think* she is my favorite of the ISS stamps. You can't see it here (because I didn't use the whole stamped image) but she is all about shopping and *knows* how to shop right!  Sometimes it is all about presentation and so I set about making a gift box for a manicure set and nail polish, a great find at the Target Dollar spot.  I am tickled with how it turned out...now if you get a chance, try one out for yourself (I promise it is easy!) and post it on the InStyle Stamps blog and you will be entered to win a prize, nothing like a little motivation :o) 

Be sure and check out some others on the DT for InStyle Stamps and make your own box, I promise it is easy!

Really cute gift box, Jennie. And I love the matching card. I think Suzie Q is my favorite too, with Ginger a close 2nd. Love the colors you used.
