You're My Cup of Tea | Stamping Bella Tutorial

Hi all. Today I'm back with another Stamping Bella tutorial - A Gift set featuring Curvy Girl Loves Tea

This box is an adapted version of the book box and you can make the boxes inside any size to suit your needs. The size I made houses four packs of Biscoff - which are my favourite! 

Pink Card
White card
Designer papers
Scoring board and bone folder
Dies decoration (optional)
Ribbon (2 x 8" lengths)

How to:
Stamp the image onto white card, colour using your preferred medium, and cut around the outline using a precision scissors.
Set image aside to work on the box. 

For the gift box cut:
1 x piece of pink card measuring 9" x 6"
1 x 3.25" x 7.5" piece of white card
2x  3.25" x 4.5" pieces of white card. 

Score the pink card on the 9" side at 4" and 5" 
Set aside. 

Score the large piece of white card on the long side at 0.5", 1", 6.5" and 7". Flip 90 degrees and score at 0.5" and 1".
Score the smaller pieces of white card on the long side at 0.5", 1", 3.5" and 4". Flip 90 degrees and score at 0.5" and 1".

Fold all the scorelines. Cut away the outer three squares from bottom corners where the score lines intersect. Create a tab from the remaining square. Taper the edges of the tabs and outer 0.5" sections as shown. 

Repeat for all three white pieces. 

For the layering panels cut:
4 x  5 7/8" x 3 7/8" pieces of white card
2 x   5 7/8" x 7/8" pieces of white card
4 x   5.75" x 3.75" pieces of designer paper
2 x   5.75" x 0.75" pieces of designer paper

Inside box fronts:
1x   5 3/8" x 2 1/8" piece of designer paper
2x   2 3/8" x 2 1/8" pieces of designer paper

Adhere one of the 2 3/8" x 2 1/8" pieces of paper to the one of the smaller white card pieces.

Apply adhesive to the tabs and adhere them to the inside of the adjacent  section. 

Apply adhesive to the edges of the bottom section and fold up to make a box shape. 
Repeat this with the other small box and the larger box. 

Adhere the panels to the inside of the box base. 

On the outside, apply some double sided tape about half way down on the sides, as shown. 

Adhere a length of ribbon to each side (approx 8" for each piece)

When the ribbon is secured, adhere the front, back and spine panels. 

Apply glue to back of the large box and centre along the inside back of the base. 

Adhere the two smaller boxes to the inside of the front, as shown. 

Using die cuts, create a panel for the front of the box, and adhere the image using 3D foam tape/dots. 

Adhere to the box front. 

Open up and fill the large box with chocolate or cookies. Add flavoured tea bags to the smaller boxes. 

Close up and tie the ribbon to secure. 
Add the sentiment across the front to finish off.
