The Stampin’ Up! catalog has a selection of project kits that have been extremely popular! Almost every kit has sold out in a much shorter time frame than predicted – in some cases a 12 week supply has sold out in only 2 weeks! So these are hot, hot, hot! The projects are cute and with everything is prepped for you – so its a win win. I was able to get the All Boxed Up Kit early on and then had to wait on a refill later but now it seems to be all back in stock – at least its not showing on the backorder list right now.
This one is super quick – the box is cut and scored and even has the adhesive on it. Here are a few tips for you though –
- make sure you go ahead and fold all the straight score lines – the sides and the top and bottom edge along with the tabs
- I don’t prefold the diagonal ones though
- when attaching the side panel lay the box down flat and fold the end over to just lay on top of the tab with the adhesive on it. it really lines up better when you do it that way rather than holding it up in the air and trying to match it up.
- The bottom of the box is tucked in like you would a box where you take each side and tuck it under the one next to it – so I started by securing one of the adhesive triangles, then tucking each corner around until I got to the last one and then secured the adhesive there. Stampin’ Up! has a video that I’m including below.
- After you have the box together – stand it up and then put a finger in each of those triangles where the diagonal lines are scored and push those in and have the top flaps meet.
- The Baker’s Twine – I measured to see how much there was for all 10 boxes – 55 inches is what I came up with per box – so cut that and wrap it around and tie in a bow at the top – do that after you fill the box. Or you’ll need to slide it back off.
We made these at my Stamper’s Club meeting this month. And then I also showed them how to use the Baker’s Box Thinlits die which creates the same box that you see in this kit. I’ll share that project with you in another post.
