Sweet Stamp Shop May Release!

Welcome to Day 3 of the Sweet Stamp Shop May Releases!  
If you missed any of the previous days, you will want to start back at the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog to make sure you see them all!

You should be arriving here from Emily's beautiful blog!


I am using the NEW Packaged Pretty stamp set and I know that you are going to love this stamp set just as much as I do!  There are just so many ways to use these stamps...sooo many!  

For my project I created a gift box using a Silhouette cut from Samantha Walker that will hold FOUR tubes full of quarters with $15 in each!  The large Packaged Pretty stamp has the perfect sentiment...anyone opening a box with $60 worth of quarters is sure to do a happy dance, right?!  :)

Supplies:
Stamps: Packaged Pretty (Sweet Stamp Shop)
Die Cut: Round Flap Box by Samantha Walker (Silhouette America)
and Nesting Circles (Spellbinders)
Cardstock: Kraft (The Paper Studio)
Patterned Paper: A to Z Collection by Samantha Walker (Creative Imaginations)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Momento) and Barn Door Distress Ink bu Tim Holtz (Ranger)
Stickers: We've Got Your Border #57002, Birthday (SRM Stickers)
Adhesive: Runner, 1/4" Square Zap Dots, and 450 Quick Dry (Helmar)
Ribbon: May Arts
Punch: Double Embossed Dotted Lace Edger (EK Success)
Other: Tubes (SRM Stickers)

To add support to the box (so it could hold the weight of the quarters), I glued a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" chipboard piece to the bottom of the box using Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and for the wrap, I trimmed a piece of patterned paper to 3-1/2" x 12 and scored at 2-5/8, 5-3/8, 8-1/8, and 11" then punched the edges with a scallop punch.I stamped the sentiment on a circle I cut using the Circle Spellbinders dies and used Zapdots to provide dimension.  I wrapped ribbon around the box, using Helmar Adhesive Runner to secure it to the wrap.For the tag I stamped the "To" tag on patterned paper and then adhered it to a piece of the kraft cardstock using Zapdots then trimmed to form a tag.
Be sure to stop by the Sweet Stamp Shop so you can see all the images that come with this stamp set and remember there is a blog hop give-a-way.
