Hope everyone is having a great week! Inspiration struck me last week whilst be very naughty and stuffing my face full of chocolate (supposed to be on a diet …. its not going well!). I just loved the dimensions of the box the chocolates came in, however, it was far to big to make from a sheet of 12 x 12, so I set about making a smaller version, and here it is!
Its a lovely box, and although I designed it for chocolates I didn’t have any on hand when filming the tutorial, so I filled it with sweeties instead!
The original version used the Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper but its currently on back order 😦 which is a shame as it is so beautiful, So I swapped it for a piece of the Sweet Dreams designer series paper instead. I think this DSP is great! It forms part of the Baby Suite (see page 39 of the Spring Summer catalogue) and it does have some baby themed accessories, however, the papers themselves are a lovely selection of generic patterns. One side uses boy colours – Lost Lagoon, Basic Gray – while the other side features more girly hues – Crisp Cantaloupe and Hello Honey.
The stamp is from Simply Wonderful, one of the sets available as part of Sale-a-bration! I love the coordination of Sale-a-bration products this year, not only do we have stamps, papers and accessories that coordinate with each other, but we also have stamp sets that are great used with some of the punches in the annual catalogue! This set in particular works great with the Extra-Large Oval punch, and the Decorative Label punch too!
