This is my second post for today! I posted earlier just to let you know the Last Chance Product Sale started. I didn’t want you to miss out on a deal as I know some things will sell out fast! If you missed my earlier post with my Top Favorite Deals, you can view it HERE.

I send a LOT of birthday cards and love having different sentiments to choose from. One of my birthday favorites is Perennial Birthday which is retiring June 2nd. Here is a fun fold card that was part of my Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet To Go last month.
Even though I used sentiments from the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set on the front and inside of this card, my kits to go are designed so you can use whatever stamp sets you already have to add a sentiment. Each month my kits to go include 3 cards and a 3D Project. I love fun fold cards so I always include one fun fold card each month. You also get the tutorials for each project so you can make more if you want. My tutorials are a great resource of ideas. Click HERE for all the details to get in on my May kit to go!
Here’s a look at all the great birthday sentiments in Perennial Birthday.
Here’s a few more ideas I’ve shared previously using this stamp set. *Click on the photo to view the original post.
Even though I will no longer post ideas using this stamp set once it retires (because I don’t want to tease you with products you can no longer purchase) it doesn’t mean it will be leaving my craft room. (*Note- If you have older stamp sets, you can always search my blog for ideas by typing in the name of the stamp set in the search box on the right.)
Check back tomorrow for the Pals Blog Hop as we showcase our retiring favorites and some sneak peeks at new products from the Annual Catalog (available June 3rd). I will have another fun fold card to share with you.
Yesterday I showcased the new In Colors. If you missed that post you can view it HERE. The lucky winner of one of my new In Color note cards is…..Bernice P. Congratulations Bernice! Email me your address and I will put your card in the mail to you!
Have a great day! Stay Safe! Stay well!

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.
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.
Here’s the details to make the explosion box:
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
Fold and burnish box then cut off the 4 corners. Round the corners on all the remaining ends.
Corner round the top 2 sides of each of the cardstock panels and DSP panels. Adhere to the inside of the box.
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.
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.
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.
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!
I really miss getting together with my friends! I plan to leave these little surprises in local mailboxes. Hope it adds a smile to their face during this stressful time. Do you have a favorite? Leave me a comment below.
