Just when I thought I could sit down and make something new my time got snatched up. It seems to happen that way more often than I would like, but we do what we have to do. So, I grabbed a leftover kit from last months workshop and turned a card base into a box. Pretty cool if I do say so myself.
I stamped tone on tone with mint macaron using one of the larger flowers from the Bloomin’ Love set to create the background pattern. My tag was a tiny piece of very vanilla which measured 1/2″ x 4″. After I stamped the ‘love you’ sentiment from the same set I punched a banner at the end with the bitty banner punch and sponged around the edges with the same ink. I curled the banner a bit before I set it in place.
The cardstock was cut at 4 1/4 x 11″. All ready to be a tall folded card. I scored along each of the long sides at 1″, turned it one quarter turn and scored at 5″ and 6″. Those last two scored would become the hinge side of the box. Scoring, snipping and a bit of gluing later and this little box came together.
I chose the large satin ribbon for my bow. That is such a rich ribbon. I just wrapped it around the short side and tied a pretty bow, leaving the tails a bit longer than normal. I usually wrap my boxes up more, but wanted to be able to slide the ribbon off easy to fill with treats when the time came. I also decided to add a tiny basic pearl on the banner, but just one. How cute is that?
Have a creative day.
