A Fun Fold Farewell to the Retiring In Colors

Stampin' Up! Stitched Labels Dies and 2018-2020 In Color fun fold card ideas for friend, get well, thank you, birthday, and more - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I couldn’t resist one last nod to the 2018-2020 retiring In Colors.  I love the bold colors and will miss Blueberry Bushel and Lovely Lipstick the most. This is one of the cards that was included in my Just Stampin’ Card Kit To Go for May. I always include at least one fun fold card in each monthly kit.  I made 5 different versions to show the versatility of my card kits.  I create them so that you can use any stamp set you already have to add a sentiment.  All you have to do it stamp and adhere! Everything you need to create is already cut, scored, and ready to assemble. Plus you can refer to the tutorials to create more on your own!

This fun fold design can be used vertically or horizontally.  There’s so many possibilities for adding the flower depending on whatever sentiment you use.  Here’s a close up look at each card.

Which color will you miss the most? Make sure you have ink refills, and your favorite color cardstock so you can keep creating with these bright colors!

I have shared in the past that I sell my cards at a local shop to benefit our local chapter for Breast Cancer Awareness.  I sell my cards for $4 each and donate $1 for each card I sell. If you would like to purchase one of these cards I will include the tutorial as a bonus.

Here’s what you need to do to order the card and tutorial:

Honey Bee has been one of my most used sets from the Mini Catalog. Here’s another fun project that is quick & easy to make!

I love to give little gifts and this is something everyone can use. This little box is the perfect size for a Burt’s Bees Lip Balm. The floral print from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper matches the colors on the Replenishing lip balm. I love it when it works out like that!

Here’s the details:

  • Ornate Garden DSP – 4 1/4 x 4 1/4  Score at 3/4 and 3 1/2 on one side, score at 1, 1 3/4, 2 1/2, and 3 1/4 on other side.
  • Remove the 4 corner pieces.
  • Cut and notch the outer edges as shown below. *Don’t notch the middle.Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden and Honey Bee Burt's Bees Balm Box idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  • Add adhesive to the 4 outer notched ends and fold the box together.
  • Stamp the sentiment on a piece of 1/2″ wide Whisper White and notch the end.
  • Stamp the flower and the bee on Whisper White with Memento Black ink. Color with Stampin’ Blends.
  • Cut out the bee with the Detailed Bee dies and add to a mini clothespin with Glue Dots.

I was hoping the Honey Bee Bundle would stick around a bit longer but it seems it’s going to be “buzzing” away. It is one of my favorite retiring sets!

Explosion Candle Box for Bee Hive Tea Lights

Today’s project features a quick & easy fun box.  I adapted an EOS lip balm box created by Sam Donald (Pootles.com) to fit the adorable Bee Hive Tea Lights I found on Etsy.

Stampin' Up! Honey Bee explosion box tea light gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I chose to use the pretty floral prints from the Best Dressed, Bird Ballad, and Ornate Garden Designer Series Papers. I think flowers and bees just go together. I embellished each one a little different using the different punches (medium daisy, small bloom, leaf, and sprig). All three have a bee from the Honey Bee Bundle. Here’s a look at each one.

My favorite part is the surprise when you remove the lid.  The box just falls open showcasing the bee hive tea light candle inside.Stampin' Up! Bird Ballad Honey Bee explosion box tea light gift idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Here’s the details to make the explosion box:

Measurements

  • Box: 6 x 6 scored at 2″ on all sides
  • Lid: 4 x 4 scored at 1″ on all sides
  • Insert: 1 7/8 x 5 1/2 scored at 1 7/8, 2 3/8, 4 1/4, 4 3/4
  • DSP: 1 7/8 square for top piece, (4) 1 3/4 squares for inside panels
  • Cardstock panels (inside): (4) 1 7/8 squares

Directions

  1. Fold and burnish box then cut off the 4 corners. Round the corners on all the remaining ends.
  2. Corner round the top 2 sides of each of the cardstock panels and DSP panels. Adhere to the inside of the box.
  3. Fold and burnish the lid. Cut and notch the corners as shown below. Add adhesive to the notched ends then fold the ends in to form the lid.  Stampin Up explosion box lid - visit juststampin.com for project directions and inspiration - Jeanie Stark StampinUp
  4. Use the Layering Circles to cut a scallop circle in the insert piece to hold the candle. Fold and burnish along the score lines. Add adhesive to the short end and fold to form the insert. Adhere to the inside of the box.

  5. Add DSP panel to the top of the box. Embellish with punched layers as desired to coordinate with DSP.  Add DSP strips or ribbon around the lid.
  6. Stamp the bee from the Honey Bee Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink and cut out with the Detailed Bee Dies. Color the stripes with the So Saffron Blends and adhere to the top of the lid with 2 Stampin’ Dimensionals layered together to give added height.

This would make a nice hostess or housewarming gift. Add it to a basket with some fresh bread and honey and you have a quick & easy gift for someone. It also makes a great little thinking of you gift for a friend. You can easily add a stamped sentiment on the inside lid of the box.  I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamp Set on a 1 7/8″ Whisper White square. There’s even room to add a little message and sign. It’s a card and gift all in one!
