Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Hope Box

Good evening everyone! I hope you're doing well today!  The Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop is HERE!! I'm so excited to share a fun alternative project featuring the August 2021 "HOPE" box.  I think you're gonna love it!

The hope box was a beautiful Bright and Cheerful kit inspired by Stampin' Up Co-Founder Shelli Gardner.  Shelli always has brilliant ideas for projects and this kit was no exception. 

The kit contained supplies to create 3 each of 3 fantastic designs!

For my alternative project, I created this fun little treat holder.  I love the idea of giving treats and gifts and the theme for this box lent a hand very well! 

The box was created from one of the card bases.  I simply scored at 1" along each 8 1/2" side, and then scored 1/2" on either side of the 4 1/4" score mark that was already there for the card.  A quick burnish with a bone folder removes that original score mark, so that you're left with a 1" section in the middle of the card base, and a 1" section down the length of each side.  Once the score marks were made, you can see where to miter for the tabs and how to assemble as a "standard" box. It makes a terrific size, as you can tell from the photos. I was able to stuff two Hershey bars and two Kit Kat snuggly inside! Yum!

I love the sentiment "Always Hope".  Nuff said! :-D

The top border was cut from Melon Mambo Cardstock, using the little border strip die from the Penned Flowers Dies.  
That big gorgeous Blackberry Bliss Ribbon came in the kit "technically" to be used to tie around the box, but Pffffft!!! I'll do what I want with it! I decided to use a bit of it to tie around the box into a bow. I have enough left over to use on a card or tag later! YAY!  The little sparkles are sequins that came in the kit as well.  I wish we could purchase more of them! They're always so much fun while they last. 

The labels were die cut using the Hippo & Friends Dies.  They have quickly become my go to for labels! LOVE THEM! Another of my favorite Stampin' Up tools is the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  I had to use it on the Bermuda Bay Label Layer. LOOOOOVE the texture! 

I hope you enjoy my little box! I had a lot of fun making it for you!
