Have you ever tried stamping on ribbon? It’s an easy and fun way to personalize ribbon for gift boxes, cards, bags etc. I stamped on both the Natural finish Ribbon and the Balmy Blue & White Variegated Ribbon for my gift boxes.
To create the box bottom, I cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock at 7″ x 7″, score on all four sides at 1-1/4″. Cut slits for the tabs. I added a few small pieces of Tear & Tape on each tab, then folded them to create the corners.
For the box top, I used a piece of By the Bay 6″ x6″ DSP, scored on all four sides at 3/4″. Again I cut the slits for the tabs. I added a few small pieces of Tear & Tape on each tab, then folded them to create the corners.
Next, I stamped hearts with the Country Bouquet Stamp set in Night of Navy directly on the Balmy Blue & White Variegated Ribbon. To keep the ink from smearing, leave the ribbon to try, I let this ribbon sit for about a half hour. You’ll want to wait longer for a heavier ribbon like the Natural Finish Ribbon that I used on a second box. Once dry I tied the ribbon on the box.
The tag is made with Tailor Made Tags Dies. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy then, die cut the bird from the By the Bay DSP with the Seaside Bay Dies and adhered to the tag. To finish the tag I added a few Flat Pearls and tied it to the bow with White Bakers Twine.
I created this second box with the Country Bouquet Collection Suite.
