Mini Paper Pumpkin and Zany Zebra Gift Box. What a weekend! In June every year the wider Team that I am part of spend a weekend together crafting, chatting, laughing and crafting. Obviously, because of the Covid-19 restrictions, this was not going to happen this year. But that didn’t stop us. We just went online. 70 of us from the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and the USA met up for a fantastic weekend of crafting. It was a blast and I will show you some of the projects we made in the coming weeks. We hope to hold another event later in the year, so if you want to be part of that, just let me know and I can give you all the information. Trust me when I tell you there is nothing to loose, but so much to gain.
But back to today’s project. On Saturday we had fun with 3 projects using the Zany Zebra stamp set. This was one of my #SimpleStamping Saturday projects. While I was making the Quick and Easy card, I mentioned that the new Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes are the perfect size to take our Note Cards & Envelopes. Today I want to show you how easy it is to decorate one of these boxes as a Gift for your Zany Zebras.
All you need is a half sheet of Whisper White card stock, whether that is International A4, or North American Letter size, just cut it in half so you have a long, thin half. Having made up your Mini Paper Pumpkin Box, you need to wrap your strip of Whisper White card stock around it, gently encourage the card to fold at the edges. Take the card away and reinforce the creases, using your bone folder.
Before you put this belly band together, you will want to stamp on it. I added Zebra heads to the front and back of the wrap (make sure you get them the right way up!). For the top, I selected the jumping Zebra and added the shadow underneath. The sentiment, which is 2 stamps, was stamped as one. Adhere ends to each other, making sure the band is not too tight, and you are done. If you want to add some dimension, you could stamp a further jumping Zebra, fussy cut it and add it with Dimensionals. Take a look at the video to see exactly how to put the wrap together. It really is pretty easy, just one cut, no measuring and some simple stamping.
