One more box but for the kids this time!

My husband loves his Mt. Dew and I love him so what better way to celebrate then some sweets for my Sweet?!?  Ok, it may be a little early but this paper - it's so cute!  This Valentine paper called Sweet Talk is by Stampin Up! and will be available on January 4th, 2022 and I couldn't wait to play with it!  This box was made around that can of sugar and his favorite other sweet, Reese's Peanut Butter cups.  I am staying true to my BBOB (Boxes Based On Beverage) theory so if you are familiar with them, this will be easy peasy!

Here are the details:

Boxes Based On Beverage (BBOB)

Soda can or 12 oz beverage

Here is a basic photo of how the box and lid will look, you will just change the measurements based on what box you want to make: (Refer to first tutorial Boxes Based On Beverage)

12 oz can of soda or beverage of choice and room for candy to the side – (Finished box size is 5” x 5” x 2 ¾” tall)

  • For bottom box – cardstock cut at 10 ½” x 10 ½” – score all sides at 2 ¾”
  • For the lid – cardstock cut at 8 1/16” x 8 1/16” – score all sides at 1 ½”
  • For this one, I recommend 2 pieces for the inside of the bottom box for stability:
    • Piece One:
      • Cardstock cut at 5” x 10 3/8” and score at 2 ¾”, 5 ½”, 8”. You will form a ‘W’ with this piece and will be placed over the next piece.
    • Piece Two:
      • Cardstock cut at 2 ¾” x 10 ½” and score at 2 ¾” and 7 ¾”.

  • You will glue the ‘W’ together with Piece Two in the middle of it. Once together, it will all go in the box straight down as you see in the photo.  You will need to glue the two smaller tabs to the inside of the box, so it looks like this when done:

The rest is decorating your lid and filling the box - it's just that easy!   I hope I have inspired you today!

Warm Regards,

Can making boxes get any easier?

Hello my friend!  Thank you so much for loving my first version of BBOB (Boxes Based On Beverage)- your support means a lot!  If you didn't catch the first version, you can find it here.  While prepping for a class making these boxes, I went ahead and made them even easier to assemble!  Below are some new steps for the inside of the box that are more versatile to fit more items for your gift giving needs.  If you would like to watch the video, you can find that here.  If you have any questions, please let me know - Enjoy!!

BUNDLES & SPECIALTY ITEMS


Did you know that Bundles of stamps and punches or dies are available at a 10% discount? Here's an important tip! If you love the coordination of stamps and tools then don't miss saving 10%, because all bundles in the current Mini catalogs will retire and take the 10% savings with them. Some of the stamps, dies, and punches will still be available in future catalogs, but not as bundles, so the 10% savings ends. Bundles, because they include more than stamps are only available while supplies last, so you won't want to wait to get your bundles ordered.
