Tutorial for the Fancy Favor

Misty asked for instructions to the Fancy Favor Gift Box or Bag. This box is so quick and easy to make I thought I would just make a quick one with pictures. If you don't have a Big Shot, it would make a wonderful Christmas or Birthday Present. Stampin' Up! has so many exclusive dies that work great with making cards, scrapbooking and 3-D projects.

You will need:

  • Big Shot
  • Extended Cutting Pads (#113478 pg 194)
  • Extended Premium Crease Pad (#117630, pg 194)
  • Stampin’ Up! Fancy Favor Bigz Die (#115965, pg 200)
  • 12" x 5 ½" DSP or card stock - I used a sheet from
    Autumn Traditions DSP (#115668, pg 160)
  • 9 1/2" ribbon
  • 2 - brads
  • Tag or embellishments of choice.
  • Sticky Strip Tape or Scor-tape

Run your 12 x 5 ½” paper through the big shot with the Fancy Favor Die.

Fold on the score lines. Apply sticky strip tape on the small flap (right side) and attach to the left side flap.

Apply the sticky strip tape to the bottom flaps as shown. Now you have a box.

Take the 9 1/2" ribbon and apply sticky strip tape to the ends and attach to the inside of the box. Attach a brad to each side to reinforce the handle.

Add whatever labels or embellishments you like to the box. I used Stampin' Up! Lots of Tags Sizzlits Die- #114508 - Tag #2 (in the book it looks like tag #4), it works perfectly with the Wide Oval Punch. The stamp is from the Holiday Best (level 1) 115364.
If you have any questions, please send me an email. Thanks for looking,
