New from Stampin’ Up!: Blossom Box Die

I am really a sucker for cute little boxes, so when I saw this new Big Shot Die die from Stampin' Up! I couldn't wait to try it out.  So I sat down to play with it the other day, and this is what I ended up with:

  Blossom Box Die from Stampin' Up!

Blossom Box Die from Stampin' Up!
Aren't they sweet?  What a great presentation for a gift of jewelry, small trinket, or chocolates. Or just imagine them as party or wedding reception favors!

Here is what the die looks like:

Obviously, this makes only half a box.  You have to use Designer Series Paper, and can only cut one piece at a time, otherwise your score lines will not be deep enough.  Card stock is too heavy to work all those folds well, and the Extended Crease Pad is a must!

As you can see, the shape of the box is created by lots and lots of folds.  Each one must be creased really well with a bone folder in order to get the box to fold correctly.  It is a bit or work, but I found it rather soothing to fold and crease, fold and crease, and then end up with the shape just magically coming together!

Let me know if you are interested, and I will try to make a video on making these boxes next week.

    I was wondering if you could post dimensions of the finished product? I wish SU would include them in the catalogs; it would be so helpful. Thank you.

    Thanks for your request, Julie. I never seem to remember to include dimensions on 3D items, because I can see what size it is when it is in my hand! I forget that you cant tell that from a picture, unless I put a ruler in it too. Anyway, the box is 2 5/8 in diameter on the bottom, the top is about 3 1/4 across, and the sides are 1 high. Hope that helps.

    Hi Sage, I would like to see a video of the construction process for the Blossom Box Die. I think they would make excellent gift/treat boxes. Thanks for sharing!

    Just in case anyone is wondering, the box is a lot easier to put together than you might think! The creases looked overwhelming at first, but after making one, the rest have gone together very quickly for me. It’s a great die for fun little gifts!!!

    Thanks for adding your comments, Anita. I agree, they are easier than it looks at first! And after doing one, the rest are a snap.
