A Little Dash Of Christmas Mini Box & Envelope Pt. 2

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Hope you're having an awesome day. 
Welcome back to my blog. 
If you're here for the first time, Welcome.

For today's project I made 
A Mini Christmas Box & Envelope
to go with the Mini Christmas Cards I made yesterday.

I used some products from Stampin' Up!s 2014 Holiday Catalog.

May this project bring you inspiration for the Holidays.
Enjoy the pictures and the instructional video below.
To make the Christmas Mini Box use the Stampin' Trimmer to cut the paper down to size. 
There are two cardstock size options
For the first option: Cut a Whisper White cardstock at 7 1/2" x 5 1/2"
For the second option: Cut a Whisper White cardstock at 7 7/8" x 5 1/2"
With any option you choose you will score them the same 
(watch video below to see both options).

Then, using the Simply Scored Board, score the cardstock along the 
Long end at 1", 3 1/2", 4 1/2",  and the 7" mark. Rotate the cardstock and score along the 
Short end at 1", and the 3" mark.

Afterwards stamp a pattern on the cardstock using the snowflakes in the Endless Wishes stamp set
Then, burnish the scores, glue all the top flaps inward.

Using the 3/4" circle punch, locate the front of your box, and punch a centered half circle at the top portion of the box; this will create an indentation making it easy to pull out the mini cards

Adhere the box using Tombo Mono Multi Liquid Glue. First the side ends of the box, then the bottom ends of the box. Be sure to glue the front bottom flap last. Then use a bone folder to burnish the bottom of the box through the inside of the box.

Using the left over scrap cardstock and the Modern Label Punch, punch out a label.
Then, from the Endless Wishes stamp set, stamp the "christmas" sentiment on the bottom portion of the label, and "a little dash of" sentiment on the top portion of the label.

To embellish the label add some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the label or the box.
Adhere the label to the box using Stampin' Dimensionals.
To make the Mini Christmas Envelope, use the Stampin' Trimmer to
cut a piece of White Multi Purpose Paper at 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"

Using the Envelope Punch Board place the paper at the 2" mark.
Punch, score, then rotate the paper and align the score line with the notch of the punch.
Repeat punching, scoring, and rotating till you have done this on all sides of the paper.
Use the opposite side of the punch to round off the corners (optional)

Burnish the sides the scores using a Bone Folder.

Then, adhere the left, right and bottom sides of the envelope using the Fast Fuse Adhesive.

Using the smallest snowflake in the Endless Wishes stamp set, stamp a cluster of snowflakes on the bottom left-hand side of the front of the envelope.

Note: You can also make envelopes using the Gift Box Punch Board
(see video below for tutorial)

Once your box and envelopes are finished slip in the mini cards and envelopes into the box.
Now you are ready for the holidays.
