Spring colors...



I love spring colors- those soft subtle colors in yellows, oranges, greens ... truly this must be my favorite time of year. Perhaps this is why my stamping juice is flowing freely today. I've already finished packing up my class for tomorrow (for those that don't know me- I'm usually up EARLY the morning of class doing last minute stuff.) Could I be turning over a new leaf? A non-procrastinating leaf? Yeah, I doubt that.

This spring box was inspired by a project on the demo side of the Stampin' Up! website. I don't usually get into a project this fast- but this was too fun to pass up, and I LOVE to create boxes and bags.

Recipe:
Card stock: Whisper White, Misc. Imagination Project (Sonia)
Ink: Old Olive
Misc: Rhinestone Brads, Eyelets, misc. ribbon
Tools: Paper cutter/scorer, Crop-a-dile, ticket punch

Cut designer paper (two sided is best) to 5" x 12"
Score horizontally at 4", 5.5", 9.5" and 11".
Score vertically at 3" and 4.5"
Lay the card stock horizontally with the first 4" x 5.5" at the left.

Panel 1 = 4" wide x 3" height
Panel 2 = 1.5" wide x 4.5" height
Panel 3 = 4" wide x 5" height
Panel 4 = 1.5" wide x 4.5 height
Panel 5 = .5" wide x 3" height

On any edges that remain on the bottom (the parts that fold up into the box) I used my ticket punch to make everything clean. I used glue to adhere the whole thing together, but I'm sure you red-liner tape would be my #1 choice.

***Some day I'll be less technically challenged and figure out had to add a diagram. Not today-though.

If you have any questions just send me an email-

Oh! Did I mention my big news? Nope, I didn't. I'll start with it only affects the people that take class from me locally. Check back tomorrow for the details... (what a tease!)

Happy day!
