Happy Thursday everyone and a very warm welcome to my new Creative Friends... thanks for joining my blog. I plan to visit your blogs soon, if I haven't done so already.
Earlier this week I showcased the first box I've ever made and today I am showcasing my second box which I made on Tuesday evening. I have a box of Date & Honey Tea which I purchase regularly (from Diskem) and as I was about to throw the empty box away, I stopped in my tracks and decided to take it apart to cut out a template, so that I could make a duplicate box. It was so easy to do and I really hope you like this one too.
I used 12x12 pink AC cardstock to cut out my box and then I used a piece of ribbon to embellish around it. Onto the ribbon I glued some pink flowers. For the top I matted a piece of leftover patterned paper onto a white piece of card and glued both onto the lid of the box for a bit of weight. Further embellished with same ribbon, a star brad and a butterfly punched with my MS punch.
I found the AC cardstock a bit too soft which was disappointing. The kraft paper from which I made my first box was far sturdier.
This box was made specially for Abi in celebration of Secretaries' Day on Wednesday, 1 September and I filled it with some super Cappucino-flavoured Sparkles.
Thanks for popping by and leaving a comment. I appreciate every single one. Hugs Sharon x
