A Diamond for Valentine’s Day

Note: This 3D project was designed by one of our fabulous European Artisan Award winners, Jessica Winter. We are providing Jessica’s original instructions in centimeters.

What woman doesn’t get excited about diamonds? I know I definitely do! Unfortunately, not everyone’s bank account cooperates when it comes to “genuine” diamonds, but how about a diamond-shaped package for jewelry, chocolates, or other little gifts?

1

You can make this little diamond box in a jiffy using the Gift Bag Punch Board (item 135862). To do so, you’ll need a piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock (item 120953) at 21.5 x 8.3 cm. Using the Stampin' Trimmer (item 126889) score the long side at 2 cm.

2

Take the Gift Bag Punch Board and place the left edge of your paper on the starting line, with the previously scored 2 cm facing downward. Now punch and score the horizontal and triangle sides with the scoring tool. Mark the side line on the bottom edge with a pencil—do not score it!!

Next, place the pencil mark on the starting line and repeat the steps. Punch and score until there is an approximately one-centimeter flap left.

The last step in making the box is to put a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive (item 138995) on the flap and glue the box together. For the bottom of the box, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue (item 110755).

To make the lid, you’ll need a piece of paper from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack (item 140548) (9.2 x 9.2 cm). With the Stampin’ Trimmer, score on all four sides at 2 cm. Then use the Paper Snips (item 103579) to cut the flaps for gluing (following the diagram); glue the lid together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the decoration I used the Bow Builder Punch (item 137414) to make a bow out of Blushing Bride Cardstock (item 131198) and attached the individual pieces with Glue Dots (item 103683). I embellished the center of the paper bow with a Very Vintage Designer Button (item 129327).

The satin ribbon that I wrapped around the lid and the string of beads come from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit (item 140551). I also decorated the package with flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (item 133787) and with Pearl Basic Jewels (item 119247).

The stamp “für dich” (“for you”) is from the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set (clear-mount item 140658/ wood-mount item 140655). I embossed it using Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder (item 109131) on Whisper White Cardstock (item 106549). Then I punched out the heart using the Sweetheart Punch (item 133786).

I hope that I’ve been able to help you with a gift (or rather a package for a gift!) on Valentine’s Day. I wish you lots of fun making your own box!
