Box It

Stamp With Fun

Our challenge to you this week is to make something other than a card, to get you started pop over to Stamp with Fun Challenge Blog, my fellow DT members have some great ideas for you.

Whenever I am asked to make anything other than a card I come out in a cold sweat, I was really stuck for an idea until I visited the fabulous Stampartic blog and right in front of me were the instructions for making a beautiful box, now mine is nowhere near as good as theirs, but I will be having another go at it as it is such a perfect size to hold gifts (6"x6").

I have even decorated the inside, I am really pleased with this one

Stamps - Stempleglede
Colouring Medium - Brown Versafine Ink, Red Copic Marker
Tools - MS Border Punch, MS Monarch Butterfly Punch
Papers K&Co.
Embellies - from Stash

Thanks for looking

Jacqui xx
