Helloooo my long lost blog friends!!!
I am sorry for my blog absence but I decided to take the summer off!!
I know some of you may not understand but, I chose to spend EVERY DAY with my kids. I know, crazy, right?
I figured this was the last summer with my oldest because next year he is getting his butt out and getting a summer job :-0!!
I did work on some projects though,and will share them with you...
This is an adorable box I made for our Aunt and Uncles 50th(God Bless!!)wedding anniversary.
The above pictures show both the open and closed finished project.
Supplies: 2- 12"x12" pieces,and 1 -8 1/2"x11" piece of whisper white cs,brushed gold cs,whisper white cs scraps,fancy fan embossing folder,big shot,2-1/2" circle punch,floral fusions sizzlits,fancy flower punch,basic pearls or rhinestone jewels(your choice;)),basic black satin ribbon(retired),teeny tiny wishes stamp set,basic black ink,simply scored scoring tool
The how too:
12x12 card stock piece #1- score at 4" on all 4 sides then cut the four corner squares off as shown:
emboss your four corner pieces with embossing folder( I used fancy fan EF)Trim 1/4" off these square for layering purposes.
12x12 card stock piece #2- cut to 11-5/8" square. score all 4 sides at 3 7/8". Do Not cut off the corners on this piece. Cut a slit on all four sides(turning 90degrees each time)to center score line, as pictured here:
This will be used to create a pocket for gift cards or money gift. Fold over and tape sides to create this pocket:
and partially punch the TOP of the inside piece for your pocket(shown in finished picture above).
Attach the smaller square directly to the center bottom of the larger square. This creates your bottom box. I added a cake by using just a 1" strip and a 2 1/2" circle punch, some basic black ribbon and a flower made with brushed gold cs and the 5 petal flower punch.
card stock piece of 8-1/2"x11" whisper white is for the box lid.
This you will cut to an 8" square,score on all 4 sides at 2". Cut all four corners at 90 degrees and tape inside to create lid.
To the lid box I added a layer of whisper white,basic black satin ribbon,and a brushed gold flower made with the floral fusions sizzlit and a basic rhinestone. I created a tag with basic black ink and the stamp 'Happy Anniversary' from Teeny Tiny wishes and tucked it under the flower. I rolled with my bone folder and placed a stampin' dimensional to create a 3-D effect banner.
Well my friends, I hope you have enjoyed this "exploding box"!
Until Next Thought,
