Razzle Box! Weekend Project

This was a very fun box to make. A friend of mine is such a coffee lover and when I was shopping at the dollar store I found this box of Nescafe Taster's Choice coffee packets. They are like the ones you add to your bottled water but a bit longer. And because they were a bit longer I had to fold down the tops of them to get them to fit in the box. 7 packets came in the box but I was only able to fit 4 in the box I made. I used some decorative paper from the Stampin' Up! Razzleberry Lemonade package. I am REALLY loving that paper and it's on my list to re-purchase when it's available!!!

I ran the paper through the Big Shot using the "Bag with Scallops" die cut. I've used that die cut SO much I'm shocked at how sharp it still is!!! After I glued it together I set it aside to dry. I went to my computer to type up the wording. I use to use these words when I was into crafting and was making wall plaques. The plaque was in the shape of an old coffee pot and I would stitch the words on and add real coffee beans and measuring spoon full of coffee beans to the front. It was SO cute and I use to sell a LOT of them!! Anyway, I'd always liked the wording and when I saw that coffee in the store those words came to mind and then I HAD to buy that coffee because I knew what I wanted to do with it!!! Shocking part here is that I remembered what I wanted to do with it!!! LOL

I printed the words out on white card stock and then cut it. I layered a scrap piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock to the back of it. I was going to tape it shut when I realized the scallop looked too plain. What to do, what to do?? I remembered seeing a flower from the Pretties Kit being used under the scallop but sad to say I don't remember where I saw that. I did like the effect it gave. It did look much better against the colors I saw than it does here. But it's still cute here! It's SO girly like!!! I added a rhinestone brad to the scallop and was about to tape it shut when I realized that rhinestone was not quite enough either. SO I picked up a piece of the Rich Razzleberry card stock and poked a hole in it. Then I centered that hole in the 3/4" circle punch and punched it out. I pushed the brad through the hole and then into the scallop flap. I liked the effect and I taped the flap shut. I was going to use velcro but the flower made the flap stick up a bit as it was and velcro would have made it worse. I did use a glue dot and many times with those if you open things slowly it will not rip the paper. But it is better than gluing it!!!

Don't you just LOVE this paper???

This was such a fun and VERY quick project to make too and I know my friend is going to LOVE it!!! This item can be used for so many things, Stamp camp, make & takes, hostess gifts, customer appreciation gifts, open house gifts, friendship gifts, the list goes on and on!!!
