Stamp Review Crew: Oh, Hello Edition

Welcome to the newest edition of the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop.   Oh, Hello is our featured stamp set for this round.  Our links are permanent so you can hop anytime- now or in the future.  Also you can click on the banner above to go to the Stamp Review Crew Blog which has all the links to participating blogs.

Inspiration for my project came from a corrugated cardboard display I saw in a store.  I thought it was neat the way the accordion folded sections intersected.
As I was thinking about recreating it, I decided to use the Designer Rosette Bigshot Die to cut the base.  That way the scoring is already done and it has pretty decorative edges to dress it up a bit.

This folds flat so you can mail it.   Here is the top view:
The Oh, Hello set has versatile and fresh geometric images.  Here a couple of chevron shapes are popped up for some dimension.
It might not be obvious but the green chevron background under the flower image below is also one of the stamps from this set.
The Oh, Hello image fits perfectly in one of the Word Bubbles Framelits.  (I snipped the little notch off with a pair of scissors.)
For a bit of texture I added buttons and a pleated piece of chevron ribbon.  There are so many ways this could be personalized!
If you would like the details for making the base continue reading or you can skip to the bottom and click on the buttons to continue with the hop.

Rosette Die Accordion Base Directions:
1.  Die cut two pieces of DSP or card stock with the Rosette Designer Die.  Cutting on the scoreline, trim one section away.
 2.  Use the Paper Trimmer to cut 1-1/4" slits along the zigzag edge.  Make the slits on the scorelines at the 2nd, 8th, 14th and 20th spaces.
Place the zigzags at the top of the trimmer.  Line up the scoreline on the cutting line.   Cut down to the 1-1/4" mark.
3.  Fold in half then fold each side back so one section shows at the edge.
4.  Fold one piece with valley, mountain, valley and the second with mountain, valley, mountain folds.  Interlock the two pieces at the slits.  Have fun decorating!
