Blossom Boxes




It intrigued me when I first saw this blossom box die in the catalog. I heard good and bad feedbacks from people who attended the convention. But the curiosity is just killing me. So, I got the die and tried it on for size.

Honestly, as I got to do my first box, it was very challenging. As soon as I got the hang of it (after the 3rd box) its like making boxes in a whim. I'll be posting some tips to make this box assembly easier. It's just not fair to just tag this beautiful box as a "difficult to assemble" box.

For those who have this die, are you loving it? or hating it? Would love to hear your feedback or questions for tips.

Here are more boxes I made with different colored card stocks with cute owl tags :)

TIP: For beginners, I'd use a DSP first before using a card stock paper. It's much easier to maneuver with SU!s DSP. (only SU DSP is thick enough to make as boxes and pliable enough to handle)



Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!

I LOVE your boxes. I got the die and used SU DP and still struggled with it. I'll take your advice and make a couple more before I put it away. Looking forward to seeing more! Thanks for the posting.

Love the boxes you made. Haven't gotten this die yet. Looks really easy once you get the hang of it. Thanks for sharing.
