Today I'm using a stamp set called Class Act as well as the A+ Apples Dies (serious FUN dies!).
If you've been following the blog this year, you would have seen the fabby new 3D/box/basket/lantern dies that have been brought out and how much a looooooove them so of course I had to combine these new goodies with the Glorious Gable Box Die to create a darling gift box!!
I began by using the Glorious Gable Box Die to cut some Kraft cardstock - using only the top filigree inserts so that the rest of the box was solid card. I adhered this together with some High Tack Double sided tape and then attached some hessian (burlap) ribbon topped with green gingham ribbon around the bottom. Next came the fun bit!!! I cut SIX of the middle sized apple from A+ Apples dies. FIVE I scored in roughly the middle (the shape is not totally symmetrical, so I've popped it in the Scor Buddy and scored each one at 1 inch which is close to the middle). Fold each of these and start gluing the sides together to create the 3D apple. Once you have half a 3D apple, glue it to the sixth die cut which is still flat - this makes it easier to glue to your box!
Die cut the apple stem and leaf and glue to the front of the box as shown. Die cut a smaller apple using the smallest apple/stem/leaf dies in the A+ Apples set, glue together and pop it up on foam tape on the handle. Finally stamp the sentiment from Class Act in white pigment ink onto black card cut with Pennant Flags Dies and attach as shown.

I've also made a quick Corner Bookmark using the same stamp and die set! Create a corner bookmark out of Kraft Cardstock and layer with Rustic Beauty Collection paper (top triangle) and green card topped with Vintage Ephemera Collection paper (bottom). Stamp the pile of books from Class Act in Rich Cocoa on X-press It Blending Card and colour with Copic Markers. Die cut with Stitched Oval Dies and glue to the front. Accent with the 'A+' dies from A+ Apples cut out of red and attach as shown.
