Stamping Supplies – Below you’ll find all the products I used to make my matchbook. Clicking any of the supplies will take you to my Stampin’ Up! online store.
Yesterday I shared a box filled with chocolate and today my project is the same box but I’ve added an opening to the front so the recipient can see the goodies inside! I used the Basket Bunch stamp set and matching Basket Builder Framelits Dies. If you’d like to see the tutorial for making the box, it can be seen HERE in yesterday’s post.
The opening was made using one of the 16 dies in the Layering Circle Framelits. This set also includes scalloped circles, like the one pictured below.
The next step is to add a piece of clear acetate or film over the opening. Be sure to add this BEFORE you assemble your box. Hmmm, wonder why I know that!?! Actually you can still maneuver a piece inside the box once you’ve assembled it but its trickier to do. You can use one of our Window Sheets for this step or in my case, I didn’t have any on hand but I did have some Clear Medium Envelopes and cut a piece of that. It worked fine!
My first box above, does have a covering over the opening and the one below doesn’t (I like it better when it is covered).
The sentiment is included in the same stamp set as the bunnies and eggs – Basket Bunch. The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White card stock with Memento Ink. Then I trimmed it to the size I wanted and added the notches at the end.
I love to see YOUR creations so please email me and share your box!

Yesterday I shared a project with a cute little bunny from the stamp set, Basket Bunch. The eggs decorating my box today also come from that stamp set AND they have matching Framelits which means, no fussy cutting! The sentiment is also included in the stamp set.
I created this box so that a peanut butter bunny I bought would fit inside (I’ll share that project tomorrow). This closed box is small but I was able to fit quite a few chocolate eggs inside.
Whenever I make a project such as this one, I create a template and you’ll find one for this box below. I write all of the dimensions on the back and this makes it so easy to recreate the project again! I’ve also included a pictorial tutorial below so let’s get started
Step 1: Cut your paper to 6-1/4″ x 5-3/4″. Score on the short side: 3/4″, 4-1/4″ and 5″
Score on the long side: 2″, 2-3/4″, 4-3/4″, 5-1/2″
With your paper snips, remove the sections shown below.
Step 2: Trim the flaps as indicated by the arrows. This helps your box close more easily.
Your box will look like this once you’ve snipped the flaps just a bit.
Step 3: Add Designer Series Paper to the front, if desired (I used a piece from the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack). You’ll use a piece that measures 1-7/8″ x 3-3/8″. Glue it to the area below your flap as indicated by the picture.
Step 4: Refer back to this template to see where to add your adhesive. Create the side of the box first. When folding the bottom of the box, the small flaps go in first, then the piece with adhesive. The piece without adhesive will go last and create the box.
Now, you’ll decorate the front of your box! I used the stamp set, Basket Bunch for my sentiment and the eggs. After stamping the sentiment with Memento Ink, I cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The eggs were also stamped with Memento Ink and cut out with the Basket Builder Framelits Dies (purchase the stamp set and Framelits as a bundle and save 10% – see product list below). I colored the eggs with Pink Pirouette and Pool Party Stampin’ Write Markers (Subtles Collection).
If you create one of these boxes, I would love to see yours!! If you have any questions, please ask!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I really should have been a better planner and had a green project for today!!
Oh my gosh, aren’t these little bunnies ADORABLE!! The little guy comes from the stamp set, Basket Bunch AND there are matching Framelits. I love it when I don’t have to fussy cut little pieces. You can purchase the stamp set and Framelits separately but when you get them as a bundle, you save 10%!
