Altenew May 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil/Ink/Enamel Pin Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s May 2019 Pin Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new stamps, die, stencil, ink and enamel pins.  If you arrived here from the talented Vicky Papaioannou blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Let’s take a look at my gift boxes:

Ombre Alpha

With Mother’s Day around the corner and two of my coworkers celebrating their birthday, I thought it was fitting to use the new stamp set and pretty paper to create super cute gift boxes.

I used Altenew’s new Ombre Alpha stamp set and the beautiful Blushing Blooms Paper Pack to create these tiny gift boxes.

Here’s how to create these gift boxes:

Pick 4 different patterned papers from the Blushing Blooms Paper Pack.

Use the envelope punch board to create the box shape. The only need these ruler measurements:

Set the 6×6 paper at the 1.5 measurements and punch. Then slide the paper down to the 4 measurements and punch.

Now all you have to do is turn the paper 90 degrees and slide the paper to the first score line punch and score and slide down to the second score line and do the same thing.

Repeat for the remaining side.

Then you want to cut the scoreline on the side of the box that has the bigger tabs. Cut just to the first score lines and repeat on the other side.

Fold the box adhere with tape and your finished.

For the tag, use the Mini MISTI to stamp the letters and use a tag punch to punch them out. I used a retired Stampin’ Up! punch.


Let’s take a look at some close-ups:

These two boxes are for my coworkers. They celebrated their birthday last week and I wanted to surprise them with a small token to celebrate them.

I metal stamped the heart and created a necklace for each of them. The gift tag is a great addition to this little box.

Here’s what the boxes look like from the top. They are nice and compact, perfect for a nice small gift. Each has tissue paper in them.

The other two are for my sisters, for Mother’s Day!

  2. Thanks for the great video! I’ve made boxes before using the punch board but I’ve never seen them put together this way so you can tuck in the lid. I’ll definitely be giving this a try.

  3. What beautiful little gift boxes with a sweet surprise inside. Everyone will be so happy. This has been a fun blog hop and what a nice ending!

  5. I always love your creative projects. These boxes and tags are awesome. These are great ideas considering Mother’s Day and Father’s Day is coming up. Thank you for sharing your inspiration with us.

  7. What a good co-worker you are! Not just because of the gifts, but because you think enough of them to personalize them with their own beautiful boxes and initials. I really like Altenew’s letters. This is the first time I’ve really paid attention to them.

  8. What cute gift boxes! I love how the double sided paper looks when you open the boxes! Thank you for the video!

  9. What a lovely way to end the bloghop! That paper pad looks particularly nice as gift boxes, and I love the ombre alpha initials. I was already a fan of the stamp set for words, but it’s good to know that each letter can stand on its own as well. Thanks for sharing this great project!

  10. Dear Kymona
    what a lovely idea. I love boxes and create them with whatever i can. I will bkmark your blog return and try it out. Thanks for teh love and inspiration.Loev and hugs

  11. SO clever!!!! I can’t wait to try this technique out and make these adorable boxes as wedding favours! 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing
