3-D Thursday: Club Appreciation Gifts

** If you are here for the Flag Day Giveaway, you can find my giveaway post here. **

We are finishing up stamp club this month for the current catalog year. As a thank you for sticking with me all year, I made these little lotion and nail file packages for my club ladies.

I followed Stampin' Bunny's tutorial, changing up the dimensions. I started with a 6-1/2 x 8" piece of cardstock. I scored the 6-1/2" side at 2-1/2 and 4". On the 8" side, I scored at 2-1/2, 4, 6-1/2". I then trimmed the first and third flap to 1-1/2" (see photo).

Ok, not 100% clear since the middle flap is folded up, but that middle flap is longer than flaps 1 and 3. Flaps 1 and 3 measure 1-1/2" from the closest score line.

Edit to add: There is now a tutorial and video available on Splitcoaststampers.  Enjoy!

Stamps: All Holidays (retiring!); Paper: Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Thoroughly Modern DSP, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, Ice Cream Parlor DSP; Ink: Soft Suede; Accessories: Crop-o-dile, Small oval punch (retiring!), Large oval punch, 1" Circle punch, Early Espresso baker's twine.

Thanks for stopping by!

Very creative, love it!
Since the measurements fit the bottle so well, can you tell us where the lotion is from?
Thank you for sharing!

Heidi Baks said...

Rena, the lotion comes from Stampin' Up, but unfortunately is no longer available. I would suggest buying lotion at your local store and then just adjust the colors and measurements to match.
