Hello friends, thanks for joining me today for this month’s A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop. If you are just joining or if you have come from perhaps Sara’s blog welcome. I know that each person on the hop has created some great alternative projects for you this month. I created a wonderful little box that measures about 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ x 1/2″ that can hold a lot of treats, and a Christmas Card.
Let’s talk about the box for a second. This is a great treat box. I created it from one of the cards from this month’s kit. I used my simply score board to create it. This is one of those boxes that you can make a lot of and actually store them flat to save space.
For my card I used a piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4. I stamped the card base to create my own designer series paper. I actually stamped it over and over alternating how far apart they were and when and where they started. I added the smallest image in the set and did it the same way. I took one of the ovals from the Giftable Greetings August Kit and stamped Merry Christmas on the front. I bet you are wondering where this stamp came from, am I right. Well, to answer it came from last November’s paper Pumpkin kit. I added some of the ferns to make it look like pine limbs. I added a bow made from the Night of Navy baker’s twine in this month’s kit.
Thanks for dropping bye today next on the hop is Carolynn Sander I know that you will love what she has in store for you.
