This is another one of Sam Donald’s patterns. I may have gotten carried away this time. I had so much fun making these boxes! Each one I did, made me want to make more. Stampin’ Up! has such beautiful paper that I wanted to try different color combinations.
For this box I used Gumball Green and the Watercolor Wonder DSP now available in the Occasions Catalog. I scored the DSP wrong and didn’t realize it until I had the glue all over it. I hate wasting such beautiful paper but couldn’t save it with glue all over it. So, I folded it in half and cut & scored another piece. When I was ready to embellish the box I saw the ruined piece of DSP laying there and decided to cut a flower out of it. It worked great since it was double thickness!
With this box I used Tangerene Tango Carkstock and Watercolor Wonder DSP. I also used the Petite Petals Stamp set and matching punch now available in the Occasions catalog.
I think this one has to be my favorite. But it comes as no surprise since I love pink! I used Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo.
I hope you like them and check out Sam’s website to get the directions to make your own! I will post the other 3 boxes tomorrow. http://pootles.co.uk/
