Good morning people! It was a scorcher here in New York yesterday. It got up to 94 degrees and it’s supposed to go up to 98 degrees today but feel more like 105! Where is my nice weather from this past weekend?! This is way too hot for me. It’s supposed to get a little more bearable over the weekend. How is the weather by you? Leave a comment and let me know! For today’s post I decided that I would show you one of the boxes that I made over the weekend. I need to take little creative breaks while I was making the Wedding Invites so I did some 3D projects. The box is made using the Simply Scored. I used a piece of 12″ x 12″ Pool Party Card Stock for the top and bottom of the box and scored on all four sides at 2 1/4″ and 4 1/2″. On the top I used a piece of Island Indigo Card Stock and to that I added a piece of Naturals White Card Stock that I embossed using the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Under the paper bow is a piece of Island Indigo that I cut out with the Lots of Tags Sizzlits and a piece of Pool Party that I punched out with the Tags Duo Builder Punch, they are adhered to the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The paper bow is Naturals White cut to 1/2″ and stamped with the friend to friend stamp from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set in Island Indigo ink. A 1/2″ piece of Island Indigo holds it together. The for you is from the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and is cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. I punched a hole and used White Bakers Twine and a Vintage Faceted Button secured with a Mini Glue Dot to the top of the bow. I really do love the paper bows and the Vintage Faceted Buttons are a great way to add a little sparkle to your project. I hope that you are inspired to make your own box and paper bows. Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
