Hello! Today I’m featuring another treat box made with the Window Box Thinlits. It has been so dark and dreary for the last few weeks so I wanted to make something bright and cheerful to remind me of spring. What better than the Gingham Gala Designer Series Papers in Daffodil Delight, paired with the Daisy Delight stamp set and coordinating Daisy Punch! I haven’t shown these products some love in a long time so it was fun working with them again.
Here is how I made the box.
Die cut two Window Box pieces from Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala paper and put box together using either Tear and Tape or Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Stamp two of the daisy images in Daffodil Delight ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Daisy Punch. Adhere the daisies together in the center with a Glue Dot. Using a bone folder, gently curl the petals up.
Stamp greeting in Lemon Lime Twist ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut using the oval tag die from the Window Box Thinlits set. I used a greeting from the Eastern Beauty stamp set. Cut a piece of Old Olive Linen Thread and tie through the hole in the tag. Adhere to box. Stampin’ Up’s Linen Thread is one of my favorite threads because it is so versatile. The Old Olive thread is new in the Occasions Catalog and you are going to love it too!
Adhere daisies to top of box using a Stampin’ Dimensional in the center. Punch small Daffodil Delight circle with the 1/2″ Circle Punch and adhere to center of daisies. Adhere a Gold Faceted Gem to the circle.
Die cut two leaves from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock. I used one of the leaf thinlits from the Beautiful Layers Thinlits set however you can use any leaf thinlit or punch that would fit nicely on the top of the box. Arrange leaves on top of box and adhere.

Today I”m sharing a card and gift box I created with products from the Gingham Gala Suite pictured on pages 34-35 in the new Occasions catalog. I love the Gingham Gala Designer Series Papers – the colors are so bright and cheery! For today’s projects I’m working with the Highland Heather paper.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – Thick Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″
Cut a piece of Highland Heather cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and attach to card base
Select one of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using black Memento ink. You will note that each image has both a large and small butterfly on the same stamp.
Color butterflies with Stampin’ Blends. For this card I used the dark and light Highland Heather and Pool Party markers and the light Old Olive marker. It is very hard to see in the photo but I added clear Wink of Stella to both butterflies. Stamp the middle part of the butterflies with black Memento ink. I used the Stamparatus to line up the small stamps.
Punch both butterflies out with the Butterfly Duet punch, which includes both the large and small image on the same punch. Add Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the backs of both butterflies
Cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock at 2 1/2″ x 3 1/4″. Cut piece of Highland Heather paper from the Gingham Gala at 2 3/8″ x 3 1/8″ and attach it to the Pool Party cardstock. Cut a piece of Highland Heather ribbon and tie around piece. This ribbon is in the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.
Cut a piece of Pool Party cardstock at 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 2 3/8″ x 3 3/8″. Attach butterflies to Whisper White cardstock. Stamp the “a little note” greeting in Heather Highland ink. Attach to Pool Party cardstock. Add a few of the smallest size of the Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dots.
Attach the gingham piece to the bottom right of the card and then attach the butterfly piece on top of the gingham piece.
For the inside of the card I cut a 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strip of the Highland Heather Gingham Gala paper and attached it to the left side. I carefully inked up just the small butterfly with black Memento ink and stamped it in the lower right corner.
Here is the coordinating gift box that I created using the Window Box Thinlits on page 232 of the annual catalog.
Here are the steps to make the box.
Cut a sheet of Highland Heather cardstock at 8 1/2″ x 11″ in half to give you two pieces at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. Using the Window Box framelit cut two pieces for the box. This framelit cuts and scores at the same time. Put the box together, folding at the score lines and adhering pieces together with either Tombow Multipurpose Glue or Tear & Tape. Watch this video for complete instructions on how to put the box together.
Cut six 1 1/2″ squares of Highland Heather Gingham Gala DSP. For the top of the box, trace the hexagonal shape of the framelit onto a piece of the DSP and cut out with a scissor.
Select one of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock using black Memento ink. For the box I stamped and colored two large butterflies and one small one. I chose a different stamp for the box than what I used for the card.
Color butterflies with Stampin’ Blends. I used the dark and light Highland Heather and Pool Party markers and the light Old Olive marker and added clear Wink of Stella. Stamp the middle part of the butterflies with Black Memento ink, using the Stamparatus to line up the small stamps.
Punch the butterflies out with the Butterfly Duet punch. Add Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the backs of the butterflies
Stamp a greeting of your choice with Highland Heather ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I used the “you are amazing” greeting from the Amazing Life stamp set, pictured on page 28 in the Occasions catalog. Punch out greeting using the Classic Label punch, pictured on page 210 in the annual catalog and add a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back.
Adhere gingham pieces to box, adhere the two large butterflies to the top of the box, along with the greeting. Adhere the small butterfly to the front of the box.
