Wow! It’s been long since we’ve played with our challenge last time. Did you missed us?! But we’re back with a new sketch and lots of fabby projects to bring you endless ideas and inspirations. So welcome to our 5th sketch challenge! And today’s sketch has been created for us by lovely Cat.

January 16

I love this sketch! And the moment I saw it I had this idea popped into my head. It’s a little bit out of my comfort zone because I don’t do boxes usually. But I was just dying to make my idea into a project. So here it is:

Isn’t it cute?! This box measures 4 x 3″ and make perfect “home” for Raffaello chocolates

To create my box I took 2 pieces of whisper white that measured: for the lid 7 x 6″ (I trimmed it later slightly) and for the base 6-7/8 x 5-7/8″. I stamped the top piece randomly using a Real Red ink pad and flowery stamps from Bloomin’ Love stamp set. When it was done I scored both pieces at 1-1/2″ on each side. After I assembled the base I’ve decided I want my lid to be slightly shorter than the base so I trimmed it 1/2″ on each side.

I also stamped same design on a piece of white tissue paper, to put it inside of my box. As for the sentiment, I’ve stamped it in Real Red again and fussy cut it. But because it would disappear in a “busy” background I die cut a circle from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I attached it to my box with Tombow adhesive and added my sentiment on top using dimensionals.

Taa-daah! The box is done! And it’s perfect little box for delicious chocolates. Or maybe for a piece of jewellery? What do you think?

I hope you enjoyed my little project today. I would love hearing from you.

Easter Bunny & Chic Made Using Curvy Keepsake Box Die From Stampin’ Up!

Cute and cutest: Easter bunny and chic treat holders made using Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Dies. I know, I know, they are all over the internet but I just had to make them myself too 🙂


Aren’t they stinkin’ cute? 🙂

I made these cuties for my sweet grand-niece Ashley 🙂 I just hope I will feel better by Easter time so I can travel and visit my family. Got my first Tysabri treatment tomorrow. All in God’s hands.

As for how I made them: there’s so many tutorials about how to assemble the box, and it’s so easy, that I decided to keep this post short. All the punches and dies used are listed below.

But if you want me to make a tutorial just let me know 🙂 Thank you for stopping by,
