Stampin’ Up! Mini Shipping Box Note Card Holder – Incentive Trip Swap

My sister & I just returned home from a trip of a lifetime… the Stampin’ Up!’ 2019 Annual Incentive Trip to the Greek Isles… it was amazing! 

Thank you Stampin’ Up! for spoiling us on the trip and a special thanks to my amazing customers and team who helped me earn this trip ♥

I will post photos of our trip in the upcoming days.

Today I’m going to share my 3-D swap for the incentive trip.  The trip achievers have the option to swap cards & 3-D projects with each other.  We make multiple of the same project, then Stampin’ Up! employees swap the projects and we receive a wonderful variety of projects made by other trip achievers.

For my card swap I used the card I posted on June 4th –  click here for link to blog post for supply list, measurements, instructions and a video with assembly tips.

For my 3-D swap I used Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Shipping Box to create a Note Card Holder with two Note Cards & envelopes inside.
The Mini Shipping Boxes have a Stampin’ Up! logo printed on front & back and are perfect for small gifts. There are 8 –  4″ x 3″ x 2-5/8″ boxes in a package.

Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive to seam (where flap & bottom of logo panel meet). Remove Tear & Tape backing and adhere 1/2″ Black Satin Ribbon over adhesive then wrap around to other side (front) and tie knot.


5. Using Classic Label Punch to cut opening in 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ Basic Black Cardstock scored at 1-7/8″ & 2-5/8″. Line one end of Cardstock (note the ends are identical in size) to edge of Punch and let other side rest in punch.

9.  Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive on back of stamped Butterfly then place folded Basic Black Butterfly on one half of stamped Butterfly.  Place other folded Basic Black Butterfly on other half of stamped Butterfly.

10. Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive on back of folded Basic Black Butterflies. Adhere to center front of box/holder.  Note: top of Butterfly Wings will be about 1/8″ down from top of box/holder.

11. To close flap of box/holder pinch butterfly wings together and insert into Classic Label opening.

Note: When inserting Note Cards into holder place together and insert at same time to avoid cards catching on each others ribbon and sentiments raised with Dimensionals.
