Today’s tutorial on SCS is written by Wendy Weixler, Wendybell on SCS. She created a darling All-in-One Box with Template for us. The box comes together pretty fast. I used some of my favorite patterned paper and a super cute sentiment and stamp from The Cat’s Pajamas for my sample.


My Box base is created from Chocolate Chip cardstock. The patterned paper strip on the bottom measures 2 1/4″ x 9 1/4″, the small strip on top measures 1/2″ x 9 1/4″. Both are from the Weathervane collection from October Afternoon. I added some stitching (I can’t help myself! Everything looks better stitched to me) and taped the box together with Scor-Tape.

The sentiment and the image are both from You Say it’s Your Birthday set. I LOVE that sentiment. I think that’s what all my birthday cards should say from now on. LOL They were stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Neenah Classic Cream cardstock. The sentiment was cut out with Circle Nestabilities, layered on a Kiwi Kiss circle and then on a Chocolate Chip layer that had been cut with Label 9 Nestabilities. The sentiment layer was airbrushedwhile the circle die was still on top with Copic Marker BG10.

The image was cut out, the present paper pieced with the same paper used for the thin strip on the box top and a bit color was added with Copic Markers (Y17, BG10). Yellow Stickles was added to the bow and the polka dots on the present. Before the image and sentiment were adhered to the box with dimensionals, I added a cream silk ribbon bow on the upper edge of the box. To finish the box off and add just a tad more sparkle, I added Tiny Twinkles to the cat’s collar and the upper right edge of the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day. Hugs and smiles

  2. Beate, I have wanted to thank you for your dedication to the art of papercrafting for some time. I look forward most to your blog as I am a visual learner and when you post a video and actually show how a project is done I tend to get out my supplies (or purchase them) to give it a try, stretching me in my creative aspirations!
    Thank you!

  3. This looks awesome! I’ll have to give it a try!

  14. Beate,
    I love every project you come up with. I want to make a card box for storage of anytime cards, complete with seperaters for different cards-Than you, birthday, etc. After I glue the design paper on the box, what can I safely apply over the DP so the box holds up better and longer-I want it to be a permanent box that continues to look good after months of using for storage. I plan to give it as a gift for a retirement party tomorrow1 Many thanks!

  15. Eine umwerfend schöne Box liebe Beate.

    Sonnige Grüße
    von Anke
