Happiness is Being With You!

Happiness is Being With You!

Hi everyone!  Have you ever had an occasion where you needed a small but special gift for someone who has been kind and helpful to you?  Well, I have had such an occasion.  I wanted to create a little something for a dear friend of mine (who is a coffee lover) so this my version of a Keurig Easel Gift Box!

Joann-Larkin-Keurig-Easel-Gift-Box

I wanted the top of the box to be really soft and pretty with lots of flowers and butterflies!

Joann-Larkin-Keurig-Easel-Gift-Box-Open

Products Used:

HCPC 3650 – Butterfly Medley Cling Stamp Set
HCPC 3651 – Botanical Rose Cling Stamp Set
HCD1 758 – Botanical Wings Die
HCD1 759 – Butterfly Medley Die
HCDP1  251 – Butterfly Medley Paper Collection
Paper Shaping Tools & Piercing Mat
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Spellbinders Tool N’ One
Memento Dye Ink Pad – Rose Bud
Memento Dye Ink Pad – Espresso Truffle

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Pink Card Stock, Flowers stamped with Memento Ink Expresso Truffle and distressed with Spun Sugar and Inka Gold Viva Decor (Magenta) and spritzed with Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray, leaves are distressed with Forrest Moss, Butterflies are embossed with Versamark and Antique Gold Embossing Powder and Memento Rose Bud then heat embossed with Opaque Sparkle Vintage Rose, pearls and lace from my stash  and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

This project is basically a 6″ x 6″ Easel card but instead of being a card I placed a 5″ x 5″ box on the inside to hold the K-cups.  Start by making the 5″ x 5″ x 2″ high box out of White Card stock.  Click here for a template for the base.  Next make your tray also out of White Card Stock.  Click here for a template for the tray.   To make the easel card part, you will need two 6″ x 6″ pieces of White card stock for the lid and one 6″ x 12″ piece of White card stock scored at the 6″, 8″ and 11″ marks.  To dress up the base of the card add a layer of Pink Card stock cut the 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″ and center it in the 6″ x 6″ base and repeat for the top but use a piece of designer paper from the Butterfly Medley Paper Collection.  Cover the sides of the box from paper from the same paper collection and attach all your pieces together.  Finish off the project by stamping and die cutting as many flowers made from the Botanical Rose Cling Stamp Set and matching die as you like!

Thanks so much for popping in today!  I really appreciate it 🙂

Have a wonderful day!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
