On Mondays at Bugaboo Stamps' Catch the Bug blog we get to show you that Bugaboo Stamps can be used for so much more ... and this is my ABaC project to share with you today:
I made a 'gift box' in the shape of a purse that can hold a slab of chocolate or a can of deodorant body spray, together with a little matching tag (on which I have a Bugaboo Stamps image called For You Flower
I didn't follow use a template for this project, and I decided to make it up as I saw it in my head ... (strange voices ...LOL!) Firstly I measured the size of the chocolate I wanted to go inside and then used a 12 x 12 sheet of double sided DP that was quite thick, as it needed to be sturdy enough to hold the weight of the chocolate.
After much measuring, cutting, remeasuring, more cutting, chalking edges and adding embellishments, I came up with something I am really happy with. I added a closing strap and a buckle, added the tag (that I used kraft card for) and it was done!
This is what it looks like opened - to reveal the yummy chocolate (which could just as easily be replaced with any little gift of a similar size.
