So, I had planned to publish by this morning, the cards coming up for my Holiday Stamp-a-Stack. However, when I started sketching out my 5 designs, the next thing I knew it was late and I had 16 designs on paper! So, tonight I’ll be actually making up the samples but until then, here is another project I created when my mom was visiting.
We customized the sizing from a different box template to fit the 4.25″x5.5″ cards we normally make. The lid of this box is just a flap that folds over the top of the box to cover the opening. We used the flower trio punch to make blue flowers for where the ribbons come through the eyelets. I also thought it needed some more visual interest on the front so I took a strip of paper, ran it through the crimper and then glued it around the bottom of the box. I think it turned out well! Let me know if you want me to post the template.
Paper: Old Olive CS, Green Tea Designer Paper
Accessories: Flower trio punch, eyelets, ribbon, crop-a-dile, crimper
Here are a couple views of the original sized box that my mom made but with a lid that actually covers the sides. It still has some kinks but I think I’ll try it next time.
