Labels 8 box tutorial for JustRite Week at Stamper's Dream

I fell in love with the Top Note box the first time I saw the tutorial by Angie Tieman on SCS. You can find it HERE. Isn't it adorable? Well, I don't own the SU! Top Note die, so I modified the idea a bit to fit with the Spellbinders Labels 8 die. It's so easy, and only requires two pieces of cardstock: 4 1/2" x 6", and 3" x 4 1/2" and a piece of ribbon about 18" long.

First let me show you the finished product.

The medallion was made with a JustRite image from one of the newest released sets called Decorative 2" Round Wide Borders, and the center image from an older set called A Merry Little Christmas Borders and Centers 1 5/8". Isn't that intricate border gorgeous? I stamped it with Versamark onto Desert Coral Dark (Prismatics), and embossed it with Ivory ep. The Rhinestones are from Kaisercraft, and the sparkle was added with a Quickie Glue Pen and Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. I also added some decoration behind the medallion with one of Spellbinder's Fancy Tags. The decorative Paper I used is by My Mind's Eye and is called Be Loved.
One of my favorite things about JustRite images is that you can mix and match so many of their sets. That means there are endless possibilities!!

Let me show you how easy this is to make. Here are the cardstock pieces cut and scored: (you can click on the photos for a closer look)



Here's the inside after assembly: First, I punched the slots for the ribbon with my SU! Slot punch. I then used Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue to assemble because I'm terrible at lining up the scored Label 8 piece with the box half. The glue remains wet long enough to move it around until the fit is perfect. Glue it to the bottom half and the 1/2" scored side.

Candy companies are getting so creative with their packaging now days. This little snickers bar fit perfectly inside. I plan on giving this to my niece with some cash underneath it for Christmas. What little kid doesn't like money with a sweet little treat?

Finally, here's a side view of the box:
This is the final day of JustRite week for Stamper's Dream. I hope you've enjoyed the projects the design team has shared with you. Check out with these gals have come up with for today:
