It's Monday! Time for Merry Christmas Monday 2020 Week #7. Today, I made a box for the Avon lotion that I used with my project from week #4, Gas Gloves. If you missed it, please click on the blue words to see it. A special lady, Karen, contacted me about wanting me to design a cute simple box that she could make to put the lotion in to give as a gift. I was so excited to design it for her. I love doing 3D projects, so this was right up my alley.
I wanted something to coordinate with the lotion bottle itself, so I went looking through my stamp sets. I came across the Snowman Season stamp set and it has a coordinating punch, Snowman Builder. You can find both of these products in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. I was also looking at the colors on the lotion and saw that there was also blue along with the red. Right away I thought of the Plaid Tidings designer series paper.
I love all the different colors and patterns in this paper pack. If you like this paper, don't wait to get it. This paper will be retiring on January 4th or while supplies last.
For the base of this box I used the Night of Navy cardstock. I stamped the snowman with Memento ink and used Stampin Blends to color him in with. I stamped his arms with Soft Suede ink. I just noticed in the picture that his left arm is up. He looks like he is waving. LOL I used the gorgeous Metallic Mesh ribbon from the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog to tie around the box.
The lotion fits perfectly in the box. I used my 1/2" Circle punch to put a half circle where you open the box. It makes it easier to open the box.
To make this project you will need the following paper. For a complete list of all the products I used, please see the end of this post.
