Cute & Easy Box with Tulip Sliding Closure


A couple days ago I shared a cute & easy box with a heart sliding closure (click here for post). At the end of the post & video I shared a few details on how to modify and create this cute & easy box with a Tulip sliding closure.

Today I would like to share all the instructions, tips and details on how I created the Tulip Box.

The Tulip image was cut from the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper which is part of the Coordination Product Release (click here for more details on Coordination Product Release) using the Tulip Builder Punch.

The Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper has 12 sheets of 12″ x 12″ patterned paper: 3 each of 4 double-sided designs. Some of the Stampin’ Up! coordinating colors are: Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Whisper White

Here are the instructions on how I created the Tulip Image including adding detail with the Stampin’ Blend:

  • Using Tulip Builder Punch cutout Daffodil Delight Tulip Image from Designer Paper. 
  • Using Tulip Builder Punch cutout both images from Whisper White cardstock.  Place Whisper White leaf/petal image on Tulip image along left side. 
  • Using tip end of Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend mark from top of Tulip image to bottom of Tulip image tracing along Whisper White cut-out.
  • Rotate Whisper White cut-out and place along right side of Tulip image and trace from top of Tulip image to intersection of Stampin’ Blend.

  • Using brush tip of Stampin’ Blend fill in center part of Tulip to add depth & dimension to flower.

  • Using the writing tip end of the Stampin’ Blend add additional curved lines from bottom to 1/2 way up flower.

  • Adhere Designer Paper Tulip image to Whisper White Cardstock Tulip image.

Note: For Tulip greenery cut two leaf/petal images from Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper using Tulip Builder Punch.  Note one image is cut from top side of designer paper & the other is from bottom side of designer series paper to get images facing opposite directions.
