Chevron Box

Today I promised more details on this box I shared on the Stampin' Addict New Color Blog Hop on Monday

Colors: Strawberry Slush, Smoky Slate and Whisper White.  Stamps: Chalk Talk.  Big Shot: Chalk Talk Framelits and Chevron Textured Embossing Folder.  Accessories: Simply Scored, Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon, Cellophane Bag, Rhinestone Jewels.
To make the box: Start with a piece of 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of card stock.  Put it on your Simply Scored the long way and score at 1-1/4", 4", 5-1/4", & 8".  Turn the card stock the other way and score at 1-1/4".  Cut a tab away from the bottom corner (where the 8" vertical line and the 1-1/4" horizontal line intersect) and then notch the top of that same section about 1/2" inch.  Fold along all the score lines.  Next take your Chevron Embossing folder an line it up with the 1-1/4" score horizontal line (so that the bottom of the box isn't embossed) and with the 5-1/4" vertical line.  Run it through the Big Shot to emboss the box.  Now turn the card stock and line up the embossing folder with the edge of where you embossed before, getting the patterns to match up as closely as you can, and run it through to emboss the other side.  Finally, cut along the top edge of the box following the chevron patter to make a large "pinked" pattern on the top of the box.  Here is what it looks without the bag and tag with it:
For the Tag:  The new Chalk Talk Bundle makes the tag so easy.  I just stamped the largest image in Smoky Slate and then ran it through with the matching framelit.  Then I stamped it again in Strawberry Slush and cut out the word "something" and used a dimensional to pop it up over the same banner on the original image.  I also added the rhinestones to the corners to add just a touch of sparkle to it.

We will be making a simplified version of this at my All-You-Can-Stamp-Buffet tomorrow and next Friday.  If you would like to come next Friday, please let me know by next Wednesday!
