Score narrow side at 1" and 5.5".

Crease on all score lines.  Snip each short score line up to long 12" score line. Snip out small wedges on each tab.

Apply small piece of tear & tape to each tab on front side of tabs.

Attach tabs to adjacent sides to create a "pizza box".

For the Belly Band:
Wrap 3" x 12" Eastern Palace DSP strip around box (not too tightly, but not so loosely that it slips off too easily).

Apply SNAIL adhesive to top edge, attach - creating a belly band.

Attach 4" x 4" foiled DSP piece to belly band using SNAIL.

Attach one Fresh Fig medallion to center using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stamp 1 Vanilla 4-point medallion with Dotted Circle stamp and "enjoy today" stamp in Dapper Denim ink.  Attach this piece to fig medallion using Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the 4" x 4" note cards:
Fold all four 4" x 8" Dapper Denim pieces in half to create your card bases.

Attach one 3.75" x 3.75" vanilla piece to inside of each card using SNAIL.

Attach one 3.5" x 3.5" Eastern Palace DSP piece to front of each card using SNAIL.

Attach one Fresh Fig medallion to each card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stamp four vanilla 4-point medallions with "to think of you is to smile" stamp using Dapper Denim ink.  Attach one to each card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

For the Envelopes:
Align one vanilla 6-7/8" x 6-7/8" piece along top each of Envelope Punch Board at the 3.5" mark.  Punch and score using provided scoring tool.

Turn piece to next side and line up score line with pointy plastic guide.  Punch and score.

Repeat for remaining two sides.  You only use the 3.5" mark for the first side.

Fold on all creases and use SNAIL on two side flaps to create envelope.

Flip punch board over and punch the tip of the top flap to create a rounded flap.

Help me meet a challenge!!

Hi Everyone!
I've been challenged to let all my customers know about how fantastic the Stampin' Up! opportunity is.  Please read this whole post and leave a comment below - your reply can be anything - your thoughts, questions, letting me know you're joining, etc. - EVERYONE who comments will receive a special thank-you from me! 
Because I am being challenged, I am challenging all of you to give SU! a try, even if you've been a demo in the past - SU! has grown and improved by leaps and bounds, even in the last year - so many great new features, opportunities, and information!   If you'd like the demo discount and join today, you'll be helping me meet my challenge, so thank you in advance, AND see below for an extra thank you from me...in the form of a NEW Stamp Set!!
My personal testimony:
I ordered my Starter Kit 16 years ago, so I could get everything at a discount.  I told a few friends and family members what I had discovered - papercrafting - and because of their interest, and my desire to create and to share, I now have a thriving business that nets me enough to pay for my stamping hobby and to add to my family's income!  My stamping hobby has turned into a viable money-maker for me and my family.  I have met incredible people through Stampin' Up!, both customers and other demos that I wouldn't have met any other way. 
I am grateful for SU!'s low-profile approach to direct sales.  They do not pressure me, and I do not pressure my team members.  I have a variety of people on my team - some have joined just for the discount, they order their quarterly minimum and get their discount - others have joined as a part-time job.  Some join, keep their discount for a while, and then drop when they get busy or for whatever reason -- then, when there's a great special they rejoin and enjoy their demonstrator discount again.  If you have any questions, or hesitations, please let me know - I'd be more than happy to chat with you about it!!
You're invited to participate in the
~~ Starter Kit Test Drive Challenge ~~
Ends at 11:30pm EST tonight (8/28/14)
Give Stampin' Up! a try,
order the starter kit by 11:30pm EST tonight (8/28/14)
and you'll receive any stamp set from the Holiday Catalog from me for FREE as my thank you for joining my team!
(Note: even if you're just joining to get the $150 in products for $99 - that's an awesome deal and if I could take advantage of it, believe-you-me, I certainly would!  You'll still get the stamp set from me so that's an even sweeter deal!  Don't miss out!  Ever heard of "no obligation" - this is it, pure and simple!  Order your kit and sit back and do nothing - don't sell anything, don't have any parties, don't place any orders - no obligation! - you'll keep everything in your kit...SU! won't even call you or make you send it back, honest!)

Click here for a video, the info you need, and the Starter Kit Order Form:
Do I have to book parties or shows?
Do I have to ever sell to friends, family, or customers?
If I never hold a party or turn in a sale,
do I have to pay a fee or return my kit?
Your Starter Kit is just that - a chance to start your Stampin' Up! business. 
Stampin' Up! understands that this will not be the right thing for everyone,
but they want everyone to have the opportunity. 
For your small investment of $99,
you are receiving product of your choosing. 
This product becomes yours.  To keep. 
Regardless of what you do after that. 
What's the catch?
The only "catch" is that to keep your demonstrator discount of at least 20%,
you must turn in retail sales of $300 each quarter. 
If you don't meet that minimum,
you will lose your discount and no longer be a demonstrator.
No pressure, no phone calls, turn in the minimum, keep your discount.
Simple as that.
