Hello! It's Product Spotlight Day at DeNami Design, and today we're featuring the super cute Spring Chicks Stamp Set PF38.

That adorable little birdhouse is my favorite image in this stamp set, so I decided to create a gift box using the birdhouse as my focal point. Have you ever tried DeNami Design's Gift and Favor templates? They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they're so super easy and lots of fun to use! Here, I used the Small Gift Box Template GF01.

I started by cutting the template along the solid lines. I flipped the template over, stamped the leaves from the Elegant Floral Stamp Set PF37 all over (leaving the top flap blank), and colored them with my Copic Sketch Markers. I stamped the top flap with Medium Polka Dots N136. Then, I scored the template along the dotted lines, applied double-sided tape to the side flaps, and assembled the box. Piece of cake!

I punched a fancy square from a scrap of white cardstock, stamped Leafy Sprig D108 in the center, added some faux stitching with a fine tip brown marker, and matted the square in blue. I stamped the birdhouse from the Spring Chicks Stamp Set PF38 on a white scrap, colored it with Copic Sketch Markers, fussy cut it and popped it up just below the Leafy Sprig.

The sentiment, Home Tweet Home D131, is a single stamp, but I inked each word up separately, so I could spread the words out around the front of the box.

I think this would make a sweet little package for a housewarming gift. It's not quite big enough to hold a gift card, but you could fill it with handmade magnets, tea bags, a cute keychain for the new house key, etc. 

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you like my creation! Be sure to visit the DeNami Design Blog to see what the rest of the talented DT made with the Spring Chicks Stamp Set PF38!!

How CUTE is this?!!! I always "think" about making dimensional projects like this but never seem to get around to it ;)

I love how you made a little gift box instead of a card. It came out so pretty! So much detail and so much cuteness on it! I really like how you adhered the sentiment too.
