Card Box

March 15, 2013

012I followed a tutorial by the fabulous Tanya Bell to create a box from the cardboard which is included as the backing for your Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!.  Tanya has made a video tutorial and it is so easy to follow.

I decorated my box with a piece of the Print Poetry Designer Series paper, Certainly Celery and Perfect Plum card.  I made the flower for the front using the Build a Blossom Stampset, Perfect Plum ink, Whisper White card and the matching Blossom Petals Builder Punch.   I gave the flower some dimension by curling the petals with my bone folder, firstly so that the petals turned down and then flipping them over and turning the ends up.  I attached the flower with dimensionals underneath the petals to keep the shape.  The ribbon is the fabulous Natural 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon which carried over from the Holiday Mini.   013The closure on the back is made with one of the framelits from the Apothecary Framelits Collection.  Sometimes simple ideas are the best.

I’d love to hear what you think of my version of this great idea – Thanks Tanya.

Bye for now, Kris.
