Put strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive on the short sides of the BACK of the large Whale Of A Time Designer Paper strip. Put lines of Stampin' Seal down the BACK side of the designer paper strip as well.
Remove the protective backing from one of the short strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive. Start adhering the designer paper to the box sleeve along the fold between the bottom of the box and the small front edge. Wrap the paper around the sleeve and crease on the corners as you go. Remove the protective backing from the other short strip of Tear & Tape and adhere the end of the designer paper in place along the fold between the bottom of the box and the small back edge.

As you are ready to stamp using the Whale Done Set, place the cardstock or designer paper on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the "You're Kind of a Big Deal" sentiment from the Whale Done Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Pacific Point Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the square of scaly orange pink Whale Of A Time Designer Paper.
Pick out the large, open, scallop-edged heart die that cuts out a heart that is 1-7/8" wide from the Stitched Be Mine Dies. Place the heart die on top of the stamped sentiment designer paper square on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the sentiment is centered. Run through the machine. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.
Tip: This die cuts out the center heart shape which you are using on this project. It also cuts out a thin, scallop-edged heart frame. Make sure you remove the scallop-edged heart frame from the die and throw it away.
Adhere the sentiment heart cut out to the top of the sleeve for the box at a slight angle so it almost touches the left edge of the sleeve.
Mount the whale image from the Whale Done Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Just Jade Ink Pad. BEFORE STAMPING, carefully rock the edges ONLY of the whale stamp onto the open Pretty Peacock Ink Pad to get a little darker ink on his edges. Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp it on one end of the large white strip.
Unlock the Whale Builder Punch. Hold it upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide the stamped whale image into the punch and get it centered in the corresponding punching area. Punch.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the whale punch out to the top of the sleeve for the box so he just overlaps the bottom right side of the sentiment heart cut out as shown.
Pick out the grouping of small, open, interlocking hearts die from the Stitched Be Mine Dies. Place the die on top of the remaining scaly orange pink Whale Of A Time Designer Paper rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so you will cut out as many solid hearts of different sizes as possible. Run through the machine. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces. Keep the solid hearts and throw away the interlocked outline hearts.
Pick out 4 different sizes of solid hearts cut from the designer paper. Adhere them at different angles to the top of the box sleeve over the whale punch out as shown using Fine-Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
If you haven't already done so, use Paper Snips to cut out by hand a large yellow fish from the curve of multicolored fish on dark blue background design from Whale Of A Time Designer Paper.
Use Fine-Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the cut out yellow fish to the top of the box sleeve under the lower left side of the sentiment heart cut out.
