More Boxes and Bows

I'm sure you're all tired of looking at these boxes by now... but I get on such a roll with one thing that I keep doing it!! I love the K&Company 12x12 paper pads because they have 3 sheets of each double sided paper. That makes it just perfect for making full projects like this box.


The card is stamped with Artfully Asian and colored with a combo of copics and SU markers. I matted the image on a textured sheet of K&Company paper that I sanded to show the texture. The dimensional flowers are from K&Company and come in a sheet of about 10 stickers. I think they are so pretty with all the glitter and rhinestones!


The pattern for this box is located on Nichole Heady's blog. I use this box quite often for projects, and if you use a 12x12 sheet of paper it will give you a box that measures 4.25" square. I'm gonna work on a shorter box with larger dimensions to fit a 5.5" square card... wouldnt' that be cool?



Time for some BLOG CANDY again.... Leave a comment on this post and you'll be entered to win this project. Plus the box is gonna come filled with some little goodies (not sure what yet!). Simply leave a comment here and you'll be entered to win. Make sure you keep checking back because I'll be choosing a random winner in the next few days.

Michelle, this has got to be one of my favorites you've ever done! At first, I thought those flower stickers on your card were stamped and colored layers from SU!'s Time Well Spent set. I have that set, so you gave me a shot of inspiration today! Thank you so much for posting your work - it's always so beautiful, unique, and happy!

huntla1 said...

This box is beyond gorgeous!!! I loved it even before I thought I might have a chance to win it. I would have never thought to use Artfully Asian (and not just 'cause I don't have it) for the base flower. It looks wonderful with the dimensional flowers on top. OOOh I never win anything, now would be a great time for the random gods to come up with me (said in a whining, begging sort of way!! LOL!) It really is beautiful!

I have never posted before but your box deserves to be awed, it is amazing.
