Hi there, Stampers! The last few days I’ve been showing you what my convention roommates gave me, so today I’m showing you what I gave them. 🙂
I wanted to give them things that would be practical at convention. There were approx. 4,000 demos there, so anti-bacterial wipes and hand sanitizer seemed like a good idea. 🙂 I had seen these little boxes (for lack of a better word) with belly bands used on all sorts of things. I thought it would work well over the wet wipes.
I started with a 12″ x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper (this is the sweet sorbet DSP from Sale-A-Bration). I laid it in on the paper where I would have enough paper to have a 2.5″ around all sides, 1/2″ for the “sides” of the “box” and 2″ to use as the flaps. I then used my Scoring Board to score the lines and then cut off the excess with my Stampin’ Trimmer. I adhered it together with Sticky Strip because it has a stronger hold than our other adhesives. I know it all sounds a little confusing, but I didn’t take measurements while doing it and don’t have one left over to measure.
If you are really interested in learning how to do this, leave me a comment and I will make a video tutorial on it. Actually, you can leave a comment on any post asking for a video on a project. 🙂
These little hand sanitizer boxes were done in a very similar way. I put the bottle on the cardstock and estimated how much would be needed for it to wrap around the bottle and form the little bag to hold them. As you can see they were different sizes. Again, I adhered it together with Sticky Strip because it has a stronger hold than our other adhesives. The handle is made from ribbon. I adhered it by punching a whole on either side of the bag and putting the ribbon just inside and taping it down with a one sided tape.
