Happy Friday! That means it is time for another one of Taylor’s challenges. I really like circles, so this sketch was a fun one to play around with. Remember, you don’t have to use cupcake images to participate in the challenge:)
I thought it would be fun to create a 3-D item this week. Ahhh, but guess what? It is more than that! The top of the gift box lid is a card:) It’s an “all-in-one” package!
Here are a series of pics to show all the details of this project:
This would be a sideview front on. The box base was created with Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. The lid is Pink Pirouette cardstock with a scalloped border created with a 3/16″ Corner Rounder PUnch. I did punch a hole in the lid x2 (front and back) with a 1/4″ Circle Punch. Made a Riding Hood Red cardstock circle for around the punched hole with my 1/4″ & 1/2″ Circle Punches so I could thread the 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon through it to keep the box closed nicely.
This is a birds eye view of the project to show you the card feature of the lid. It is a 4-3/8″ square card that is attached to a 4-1/2″ lid with Glue Dots. I just love this idea…..at parties, the card always seems to get separated from the gift, so I thought this was neat. Picture giving this to a young girl. She can keep it after her party as a keepsake box.
I just love this stamped flower from Eastern Blooms stamp set. I simply stamped it twice and cut the larger petals from one of the two images and attached together with a mini glue dot. Topped off with a Pearl from the Pretties Kit. Created the rosette behind the sentiment with 5/8″ Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon.
Check out what the rest of the cupcake crew came up with for Taylors challenge: Ana Wohlfahrt, Jami Sibley, Lynn Mercurio, Monika Davis, Sherrie Siemens, Stephanie Hargis, and Vicki Chrisman. And this weeks featured cupcake samper is Noelle McHone.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by.
