I had to wait a little while to get my hands on it, because I did not attend the recent Stampin' Up! yearly convention. I have just had to sit and drool at a PDF version !
One of the very first things that caught my eye was one of the new "Suites", part of which includes some very very beautiful Designer Series Papers which I know are going to be A HIT !! I needed a unique style box project to show off one of my personal favourites from the pack.
So I decided to do some teasing and created this cute little 2 5/8" x 2 5/8" inch cubed "Pop-Up/Pop Shut" box and I really love how it evolved.
Basically the base of the box is nice and sturdy - its one of those double thickness reinforced boxes.
I lined it with some Sweet Soiree DSP and created the pretty closure, so it pops shut.
Then I finished it off by adding panels in the same beautiful paper and a shimmery ribbon bow.
I got stupidly excited all over again - its lovely when a design really "works" well.
Aren't those colours glorious ? !!
Anyway - enough teasing from me. Here is my latest video giving step by step instructions on how to make my box. You can start practising and perfecting now, ready for when the new catalogue goes live in January !
Happy Saturday everybody. It's the weekend - Yay !!
Bye for now.
