What you'll do for the Box & Belly Band:

For the Box:
Score long side of 12" x 6.5" Dapper Denim piece at 1", 5.5", 6.5", 11".
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.
