Today’s lesson is how to create these gorgeous boxes using the new Mini Project box downloads from Stampin Up. You don’t even need the My Digital Studio program to make these stinkin’ cool boxes, just the download from my store. Simply print off my instruction sheet, download the templates and you’re on your way!mds-box4-sweet-pea2

The instruction sheet gives step by step instructions on how to use and print your template on the computer (both My Digital Studio and MS Word instructions). Then the video demonstrates how easy it is to put your box together, once you’ve printed. We’ll also be using the Fabulous Beautiful Butterflies Embosslit in the Big Shot to make the amazing, shimmery butterflies.

    1. You almost don’t need to put anything in these boxes at all; they seem like a gift by themselves. I especially love the glitter on the little butterflies!

    2. Tami,
      Very nice and simple too. Great job!
      Rubber Hugs,

    3. Doralyn says:

      Love the boxes. Absolutely beautiful. Will you be selling them as a kit? My favorite is definetly the butterflies.

    4. Hi Doralyn, thanks! Did you see the video? This is simply a downloadable template that you print on card stock, then print designer paper on the other side. Cut out and fold. That’s it.
      The template is available on my online store for $1.95 and comes with 2 designer papers. Printable instructions above. Enjoy!!! Tami

    5. LOve the boxes. Thank you for sharing there is always a wealth of ideas on your site. Linda

    6. Tami, thanks so much for showing this. The boxes are adorable and I had no idea you culd get the template w/o having MDS.
