Happy Saturday my blogging friends! Time for a Create with Connie and Mary Saturday blog hop!
Our theme this week features boxes!
Handmade boxes are the best because you can customize them to just about any size you need. And, with all the fabulous Designer Series Papers Stampin’ Up has – you can’t go wrong!
I made this darling 3 x 3 box with a peachy top –
The lid is (just retired) Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper cut at 6 x 6.
It is has two scores lines on all four sides. To make a snug fit on the lid, whatever your base is made of, take a straight scrap of the same card stock, fold it in half and place it on the left side of your Simply Scored to move the paper slightly away from the left side. Score at 1/2, and 1 1/2. You will cut away a few of the extra pieces, making this also a basic ‘box’ that is used as the lid.
I decorated the box when it was done! I cut a couple of peaches from the paper and stamped the perfect image from Beautiful Bouquet!
