#MakeitMonday Episode 14 – Elegant Bird Ballad Box

Bird Ballad Box

Hello and welcome to Episode 14 of my #MakeitMonday Series.  I just had to make another cute gift box this time using the Bird Ballad Suite!


I just love this DSP!! Images in the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper were hand coloured using Stampin’ Blends for a soft, blended look.  The DSP pack consists of:

* 12 sheets of patterned paper: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs
* 12″ x 12″ (30.5 x 30.5 cm)
* Acid free
* Lignin free

Coordinating colours: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede, Whisper White



Cut A4 sheet down the longest side at 7 1/2″ then 7″ – turn once and cut at 8″ to give you a piece that is 7″ x 8 “

Scoring and Cutting:

  • With the 7″ side to the top, score at 1″ and 5″ then turn
  • With the 8″ side to the top sore at 2 3/4″, 3 3/4″, 6 1/2″ and 7 1/2″
  • Now, with the 1″ score line at the bottom and the 1/2″ scoreline at the right side, cut up all four sections to first score line on the botton edge of your cardstock.
  • Cut away the small rectangle and make a wedge on the thin flap as this is where you will adhere together.
  • On the top half, keep the first box and cut away the remaining four sections.
  • Round the corners of this first box section as this is your fold over lid flap.


You can either stamp the cardstock before you start cutting or you can fussy cut DSP and add layers to your gift pouch.  I added one piece of DSP then a circle die cut section for the sentiment. I fussy cut some floral and foliage images to give it an extra ooumph 🙂

Products Used:

There are even more gorgeous products in this suite – why not add the trinkets or laser cut cards?
