Wasn't the Stampin' Addicts Spring Catalog Blog Hop Fabulous? If you missed it, all the blogs should be deep-linked together so you can still see all the great projects. You can start on my post.
First, it definitely does NOT feel like spring in my neck of the woods. We have about a foot of snow on the ground and it is right around 20°F outside even as I type this. So it did feel a little strange to be sharing Spring projects right now. But that is OK. Spring will get here eventually, right? (One can certainly hope anyway.)
The project that brought the most comments and the most pins from the Blog Hop was the box. So today, I am sharing the details of that with you. On Wednesday, I will share the details on the candy wrappers and on Friday, the card. Deal?
For the base, I started with a piece of card stock 5-1/4" x 7-3/4". If you want to stamp images on it to give it a background, do that now. Then, placing the card stock the long way in my Simply Scored Tool, score it at 1-1/4", 3-5/8", 4-7/8" and 7-1/2". Then flip it the other way and scored at 1-1/4" to make the bottom. You can see what it looks like from the diagram below:
To decorate the top, I followed the instructions that came with the kit to make the flower and adhered it to the box top. Then stamped, punched and tied the tag around the flower. And voila! You have a quick and easy box perfect for spring, when it finally gets here in three or four months. :)
Don't forget that the start of the Spring Catalog on January 3 also means the end of the Holiday Catalog. So if you haven't purchased everything off your wish list from that catalog, be sure to let me know ASAP. And since today is New Years Eve, I hope you all have a safe and fun time with whatever you have planned to celebrate the old and ring in the new. I also wish you and yours a prosperous and blessed 2013! Happy New Year!
