Hand Stamped Half Cracker Gift Box With Hidden Gift Box Using Stampin Up Waterfront Stamp Set

The new Stampin Up stamp set Waterfront is just stunning. There are many examples around of the amazing scenes you can make using this set but I wanted to use them differently. I used the different shapes in the set to hand stamp my own patterned paper.

I created this half cracker box for a Yankee Candle, I added a hidden box lid so that you could use it for a money gift or some jewellery maybe. This was a make I designed for a class and the participants were really pleased with their efforts and amazed themselves with their achievements. I allowed people to chose which stamp set they used and what colour combinations they wanted. The results were stunning.

  1. What are the measurement for the A4 card stock. I think it's different than our 8 1/2" x 11" card stock here in the US...
