During June, my club members made a a "2, 5, 7, 10" box and filled it with chocolate..... Yum!! We made the boxes using Kraft cardstock wheeled with the "It's Beautiful" jumbo wheel. The Butterfly is from "Garden Whimsey" and stamped in Groovy Guava on the main whisper white CS, the stamped again on a scrap piece and cut out. We adhered some Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the butterfly's white spots and attached the butterfly to the box with a small strip of a dimensional. You can see how the butterfly stands away from the box in the second picture with just that little bitty dimensional. The box is then tied shut using the Groovy guava double stitched grosgrain ribbon.
Each box is filled with chocolate candies wrapped in "Afternoon Tea" designer series paper and stamped with the flower from "A Little Birdie Told Me. Then we punched out the small flowers with the flower punch from the "Three for You Punch Box" in Bayou Blue, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi and Groovy Guava cardstock. We also punch out small circles with the 1/4" circle punch for the flower centers and attached the flowers and the centers with mini glue dots. I think these turned out super cute. If you like these in-colors, you need to get them now as they will be retiring with the Spring/Summer catalog and are only available until 8-10-08. Call or email me if you would like to stock up on the inks, ink refills and cardstock while you can still purchase them.
Till tomorrow........ it's off to beddie-bye, you know another work day tomorrow but a long weekend again to, you guessed it, STAMP!!!
