Stampin'Up! A Dozen Red....Tulips?

Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Gemma Clarke

Hello everyone,

Today's project is a cute little centre piece or a lovely gift for someone special. I have based my vase today on a gift box that I saw quite some time ago by Ann Melvin, her beautiful ornate gift box, I thought it would make a great vase to put paper flowers in and with the Tulip punch in the mini catalogue I couldn't wait to get crafting.

I started with a four sided box vase and then decided to make a five sided version to give it more of a typical vase shape.

I then started experimenting with my different punches and thought that the four petal punch made great leaves for under my tulips.

To make my vase I chose real red card and I used some of the From My Heart Speciality DSP. I used the coordinating stamp set and punch pack within the suite to make the tag on the vase. I love how the scalloped heart punch cuts out the heart images on the dsp such an easy way to make toppers and tags!

To make the vase you will need

Card measuring 6 3\4" x 5 3\4" which you will need to score at

On the 6 3\4" side at  1 1\4", 2 1\2", 3 3\4", 5" and 6 1\4"

On the 5 3\4" side at 1 1\4" and 5 1\4"

5 pieces of card measuring 1 1\4" x 5 1\2", these all need to be scored across the long side at 1" and 5"

For the Designer Series Paper you will need

5 pieces 1 1\8" x 4 1\8"
5 pieces 1 1\8" x 7\8"

You will also need a scrap of the same coloured cardstock roughly 2 1\2" square, this is for the bottom of the box.

You will also need some more card to stamp on and to punch with, If you are following my vase you will need whisper white and real red
