Good Luck Gable Box with LAST CHANCE Goodies

Click here for the most up to date (as of today, 6/7/10) Stampin' Up! LAST CHANCE ACCESSORIES LIST. This list is updated daily and many, MANY of our favorite accessories are selling out quickly! I have a few to show you today that I used on my 'Good Luck' Gable Box!
I love making boxes! It's kind a new thing for me! Cards are so fun - but boxes are just too fun! Beate of Splitcoast Stampers has a fantastic tutorial on how to create a Gable Box out of {1} sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" card stock! There's hardly any cutting and assembling this is SO easy!
My colors for my box were inspired by the Inkspirations Colour challenge to use: Kraft, Real Red, Basic Gray, Whisper White, (and I threw in a little Basic Black!!!).
The Pink Elephant also had a challenge to use the color Red, Scallops, and a Bow! Here's what I did for that challenge:
  • The bottom edge of the belly band of DSP around my box is punched using the Eyelet Border Scallop Punch.
  • My bow at the top of my box holds my box together.
  • The color Red is showcased on my ribbon, tag with sentiment stamped in Real Red ink and die-cut daisy flower!
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • Looking for some Basic Gray DSP?? Look no further than the Noevea Chic DSP pack! I used a sheet from this LAST CHANCE PAPER pack as my belly band for my box! This pack of paper is 'While Supplies Last' and will soon be retiring!
  • My bow is tied with the Real Red 3/4" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon! Another great accessory on the LAST CHANCE RIBBON LIST! As of today it's still available for purchase at a 50% Discount! This spool of ribbon contains 10 yards and is on sale for $4.48.
  • My Daisy centerpiece showcases a favorite of mine, the Basic Gray Corduroy Brads! These are on the LAST CHANCE ACCESSORY LIST and are also on sale for a 50% Discount. The package of brads and buttons contains 24 pieces and you can order it now for $4.98.
