Hello again! I’m showing you today, how to easily transform the Hamburger Bigz XL die, into some adorable treat boxes, suitable for birthdays!
How cute are these?! I just LOVE how versatile this die has been – I’ve used it to do treat boxes for other occasions too, like Halloween and Christmas.
The first box, made from Tempting Turquoise A4 cardstock, has a belly band using Sweet Taffy DSP. I made a bow from matching DSP, using the Envelope Punch Board. The label on the front used the Sketched Birthday stamp set (ink used was Tempting Turquoise), and was layered over a label punched with the Label Bracket punch, then mounted on a circle punched with the 2″ circle punch.
The second box, cut from Old Olive A4 cardstock, has a belly band using Sweet Taffy DSP. I tied a length of Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon around it. The butterflies were stamped with Papillon Potpurri (ink used was Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, and Blackberry Bliss), and punched out using the Bitty Butterfly punch. The sentiment used the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set (ink used was Old Olive), with the word ‘<YOU>’ covered by washi tape on that particular stamp, so I only used the words ‘Happy Birthday’. It was finished off with a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels.
This box was cut from Blackberry Bliss A4 cardstock, and had a belly band cut from Sweet Taffy DSP. The sentiment was stamped using the exclusive Good Greetings stamp set (ink used was Melon Mambo), and punched out using the Modern Label punch. I also stamped 2 small flowers using the Petite Petals stamp set (ink used was Daffodil Delight) onto Daffodil Delight A4 cardstock, and punched them out using the matching Petite Petals punch.
The larger flower consisted of one flower stamped on Daffodil Delight A4 cardstock, using the Flower Shop stamp set (ink used was Daffodil Delight); and one flower stamped on Daffodil Delight A4 cardstock using Mixed Bunch stamp set (ink used was Daffodil Delight).
This was then finished off with a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels.
For this box, I cut the box from Tangelo Twist A4 cardstock, and had a belly band using Confetti Celebration DSP. I stamped the sentiment and pinwheels (?) using the Starburst Sayings stamp set (ink used was Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, and Melon Mambo); and then cut them using the co-ordinating Star Burst Framelits. This was then finished off with a length of 1/8″ Gold Trim and Bermuda Bay Taffeta ribbon, folded over and adhered underneath the sentiment label.
This box was cut from Strawberry Slush A4 cardstock, and the belly band was cut from Confetti Celebration DSP. The sentiment was stamped using Label Love stamp set (ink used was Strawberry Slush), and punched out using the co-ordinating Artisan Label punch.
I then tied a length of Pistachio Pudding Thick Baker’s Twine around the box, threading the ends through a large Vintage Faceted button, before tying it into a bow.
I love this one the most of all – maybe because I love stars so much! This one was cut from Hello Honey A4 cardstock, and the belly band was cut from Sweet Taffy DSP. The large star was cut from the now-retired Silver Glimmer Paper (this was revamped for the 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue) using the Star Framelits. The overlay was created by cutting two consecutive stars together, from Daffodil Delight cardstock. The small stars were punched out using the star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack.
The sentiment used the now-retired Morning Meadow *Hostess* stamp set (ink used was Daffodil Delight), and cut into the shape of a banner.
I finished the box off with a length of 1/8″ Silver Ribbon Trim, folded over and adhered underneath the star.
And just to show how versatile this die really is, here is some I made for Christmas and Halloween :)
