Stampin' Up!'s Detailed Floral Thinlits Die Boxelope for the 2017 Desktop Calendar

For my Detailed Thinlits 2017 desktop calendar, I needed to make something wonderful to present this cute little gift.  I decided to make a boxelope.  What is a boxelope you ask?  A boxelope is both an envelope and a box, great for those cards with a lot of dimension that just won't fit into a regular envelope.

To make the boxelope you'll need to use Stampin' Up!'s Envelope Punch Board.  Cut a piece of card stock at 8.5" x 8.5".  Punch and score at the 3.75" and 4" marks.  Rotate counter clockwise and align up with the score marks and punch and score again.  Continue on all sides.  After all the punching and scoring has been completed, snip off the tiny, little squares in each corner.

Next we need to make this boxelope pretty don't we?  That's where the Detailed Floral Thinlits come into play.  Take the larger of the dies and place it in the center of the punched, scored card stock, soon to be boxelope.  Run this thru the Big Shot.  After removing all the little bits of the die, take a 3.5" x 4.5" piece of Whisper White card stock and using as a liner, adhere to the inside of your soon to be boxelope. This shows off the detail of the Detailed Floral Thinlits, thus creating an absolutely beautiful, stunning look!

Burnish all of your score lines.  Take care when burnishing your scored lines, it's a little tough when they are so close together.  TIP:  Use a ruler to help with the great!  Adhere some of Stampin' Up!'s Tear and Tap along the side edges.  Place your desktop calendar inside your boxelope and form your boxelope around your calendar.  Next, use ribbon and a tag made with the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies as your final embellishments.

Here it is.....
