If you have been following me for a few years, you know I sell acorns at craft fairs in the Fall. I have good news and bad news. The Bad News first. The property I use to get the acorns from has a new, nasty, strange owner. The previous owner died (God Rest her soul, A Beautiful Kind woman) and her adopted daughter is now in charge. We are no longer collecting from her tree. Staying clear. Very sad. The Good news, Stampin’ Up!® has a New Stamp set in the Holiday Catalog called “Acorny Thank You”. This is certainly one of my new favorites. Time for a sneak peek picture tutorial using this set.
Here is how I created this cute box using-Into The Woods DSP, also from the Holiday Catalog.
Start with a 6″ X 6″ piece of Designer Series paper:
Score 1″ on all 4 sides:
then score on one side 2 1/2″ and 3 1/2″:
Fold on all score lines:
Cut on score lines on 2 sides.
I made better cuts -triangle cuts:
It should look like this on opposite side as well:
Add (your choice) adhesive/Glue/Sticky Tape/Scor Tape/Tear and Tape to smaller tabs on all 4 sides:
Put together lower part of box:
Then finish with top of box. All sides should be glued inside of box giving it a clean look:
How’s that for a nice little box:
I added my little Acorn and the Thankful greeting:
What’s inside-a teeny, tiny Tic Tac pack of course. To hot for chocolate right now:
And the box again:
So much fun. Perfect for a Life Saver roll, perhaps a chap stick, maybe money. Even though our stamp set and DSP won’t be available until Sept 1st, go ahead and make one anyway with any of our current DSP.
