Bridal Shower Party Decor & Rectangle Box w/ Gift Box Punch Board Video: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello my friends and welcome to the official Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop! If this is your first visit to my blog, welcome! You've landed in Calgary, AB Canada! 

Today we are sharing the projects that Stampin' Up! will be posting on the corporate Facebook page - make sure you give them a like! And stop by my page and like it too. :)

Our theme this month is gift packaging, and I have an adorable little rectangle box made with the Gift Box Punch Board to share. It's part of a bigger collection of projects I've made for some showstopping Bridal Shower Decor. First up, let's take a peek at the box.
I made this box using the Gift Box Punch Board. With the measurements found on the punch board you can only make square boxes, but I had my heart set on a rectangle. So I played with it a bit and figured out how to alter it. I made a video to show the steps so you can make rectangle boxes too.

It's so easy to make these boxes with the punch board, and SO cool that you can make custom paper with the Color Me Irresistible Designer Series Paper! Wasn't that fun to see in the video?! And what's even better is that this paper is on sale for 50% off - while supplies last! Eek! 

So now let's take good look at the additional pieces of Bridal Shower Decor I have to share.
As I mentioned in the video, both the Sparkle and Shine stamp set and the Crystal Effects I used to make the adorable diamonds are retiring, so you'll want to buy them asap. Don't forget the Bow Builder Punch and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter too.

Once I created the Bridal Shower Decor I was eager to make another set in a bright colour, and of course chose my fave, Melon Mambo!
Wouldn't this be so awesome for a birthday party, girls night out, or slumber party? Pink and gold is totally hot for party decor. 
Adding little details, like coordinating napkin rings, really brings the theme of your party together. And they're SO easy to make!
Here's the rectangle box reinvented in Melon Mambo and Gold. It's seriously stunning!
Don't forget to finish off your party decor with little cupcake picks and decorated straws. Again, these are so quick and easy, but will make your party one to remember. 

I have compiled a list of the supplies you'll need to recreate these projects at the bottom of this blog post. 

Now its time to head south of the border and go visit my friend Amy O'Neill in Texas!
