morning I uploaded my video that shows how to make this 3″x3″x3″ cube box using the
Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies.
When Stampin’ Up! introduce a new
product like the Lots to Love Box, it doesn’t take long before a demonstrator comes out with an idea how to get more out of our dies,and this one is
I don’t know who came out with the first Lots to Love Box,
but the first time I saw the idea was at team training a couple of
I saved mine to make after I was back home, because the box
inspired some ideas for me.
The first box I made was the Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla Bundle of Love
Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) Box.
I adjusted the score line,
added a window and worked out how to cut DSP to cover the lids.
The result was that my
bow was going sideways, not a good look!
While I was waiting for my video to download, I
had a look at my box to see if I could do anything to remedy my
I took one of my small retired punches and punched four hearts using Blushing Bride CS,
and adhered one heart to cover the holes on the DSP, and another underneath on the cardstock side!
