Wrap and Clip Box

I recently posted a video and shared images of this Wrap and Clip box on my You Tube channel and various sites and groups I belong to. People loved it and it's such a simple project. My video was a little bit 'me' and hence I wandered out of shot a fair bit so I decided as it was popular and even though it was an easy to make piece I would refilm.

The first time I used a piece of Lovely Lipstick DSP for the box and self stamped some Whisper White using Seasoned with Kindness and Lovely Lipstick. Second time around I stuck with new In-Colours 2018-20 but chose Pineapple Punch DSP and ink and chose a different stamp from the same stamp set.

Seasoned with Kindness is a host set so is exclusive to those placing a host/party order and it is a beautiful set. I look at it in more depth in another of my video tutorials HERE if you're interested in that.

In this updated video I also show how to make a set of small notelets to pop inside the box and as the notelets are not a standard size and neither is the box (the beauty of hand made) it was difficult to make envelopes for the notelets using the envelope punch board so I made little slot in wallets for them instead, which I give brief details of in the video. There isn't a lot to demonstrate really, they are basically wraps for the card with a thumb slot punched out. To add a little more pizazz I used the pretty label punch for that and it just looked a little bit more special than a regular half circle.

For the cards I used the other four new in-colours so this project shows them in all their glory.  What also gets demonstrated in all of its glory is the way I contaminate my Pineapple Punch ink pad with green from a stamp which obviously was harbouring some ink in its recesses... a lesson learned to always thoroughly clean stamps!

I try to make the most of remedying the damaged pad but another one is on order and I won't be making the same mistake again.

Hope you enjoy this cute little project which is perfect for coming summer craft stands and fayres or for teacher gifts.

Have fun with crafting and know that everyone makes mistakes and has disasters now and then and it's just fine to experience things going wrong. Don't let it put you off trying.
