Aloha and welcome to another edition of the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop! Twenty of my Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator friends are joining me in this worldwide blog that stretches all the way from New Zealand to Hawaii across twelve different time zones.
The general theme for this month is “Step It Up!”- one of my favorite things to do! You’ll see the projects go from beginner to casual to avid- something for everyone!
I’ve kept my box pretty simple for the Beginner Crafter. No Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine- just punches. But using this gorgeous Specialty Designer Series Paper makes it look quite fancy, don’t you think?
Time to Step It Up! a bit for the Casual Crafter. This is for someone who has a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine but maybe doesn’t have tons of time to spend on a project.
Can you spot the changes I made? I’ve used Taylored Tags Dies to cut out the two tags and have included some Gold Metallic paper. Don’t you love it?!! A little goes a long way! I’ve also added a small border of Polished Pink around the DSP.
Let’s Step It Up! even more!
Let’s add even more! It’s hard to stop when you have a craft room full of pretty ribbon and sparkly embellishments like I do!!
I’ve added three new things. Can you spot them?
Polished Pink 🎀 Ribbon, more of that Gold Metallic Paper on the sides, and a pretty Gilded Gem. Oh, there’s more. Simply Elegant DSP on the inside.
If I could find some gold foiled chocolate around here, I’d add a 4th OVER THE TOP project!! It’s so easy and so much fun to add to your projects with coordinating products!
Which type of crafter are you?
Beginner- simple projects and no Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (yet!!)
Casual- like your projects with some layers and a little bling
Avid- the more, the better!!!

All supplies to make these boxes are listed at the very bottom of this post. I want to mention that these boxes are very sturdy and simple to put together- no glue required!! And they will only be available until June 30 (or while supplies last)!
I hope this project has inspired you to do some stamping and to Step It Up! a bit!
