Stamping with Washi Tape? You've got to be joking!

Sweet Talk Suite with Stampin' Up! for an Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop

Hello and in case you've not come across me before, my name is Donna Lester and I'm a UK crafter based in Wales.  I go under the name of Taffy Crafting and today I'm taking part in a blog hop which is showcasing a suite from the new Spring/Summer catalogue which went live earlier this month.

Valentine's Day will soon be here so I'm using the Sweet Talk designer series paper for a cute little 2" x 2" x 2" gift box.

The Sweet Talk designer series paper is lovely - doesn't have to be for Valentine's Day but is really suited for it.  

My box starts with two sheets of card.  One measures 6" x 6" for the base and the other, for the lid, measures 5" x 5".  I've scored the larger card at 2" on all four sides and scored the smaller one at 1 7/16" on all four sides.

I've cut it as follows:

Using the Sweet Talk designer series paper, I've cut 5 pieces of the striped paper.  4 pieces measure 1⅞" x 1⅜" and one piece measures 1⅞" x 1⅞".  The other piece of paper for the centre measures 1¾" x 1¾"

I put Tear n Tape adhesive on the outside of all four tabs, remove the backing paper and stick the tabs into the inside of each side of the box/lid.

I finished the box with some Gorgeous Grape ribbon
