I have a different sort of project to share with you today. Over the past few weeks I have been sharing card videos for Make It Monday, but today I thought I would make a box instead. I was totally inspired by the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper on this one, when my pack of paper arrived I pulled out all the papers and immediately thoguht of these awesome candles that have been in my candle draw for AGES! and I couldn’t find them – I was so disappointed, but I found a couple last week and so this box was born….
How cute are these?! and although I made them with Giant Tealights in mind I’m sure that these would also fit some of those very nice chocolate balls too.
The box is simple to put together, in a Pizza box style. I didn’t add a thumb notch on the Melon Mambo version but the Old Olive one I used my 1″ circle punch to take out a little piece at the front just big enough to put your thumb nail in for easier opening
The flower is taken from the Fresh Fruit stamp set. I’m totally loving the 2-step stamping effect of this stamp set, with the solid layer stamped off once before stamping on the project for a lighter tone, and the outline image stamped at full strength. I’m also enjoying this colour combination; Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive, very fresh – great for Summer (if it ever arrives!)
