Make a Wish? You Got It!

Have you been wishing to find something 'on sale' that you can use over and over again, sharing fun in countless ways?   Perhaps this is just for you!  

This gift box project features the Baker's Box Thinlits ... and if you've noticed the Weekly Deals you know that this set of dies is temporarily reduced in price!   
The sentiment stamp is part of the new Party Wishes stamp set.  Since I was making the box with the much-fun Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper, I opted to emboss the sentiment in gold.  Mmmmm!  After all these years, I'm like a kid .. I still love the process of heat embossing as well as the look!  And I have to
share ... this beautiful new paper collection is noticeably heavier than typical 12"X12" papers ... so it stands up beautifully for your 3D creations, boxes, etc.  One side of each sheet is silver-on-kraft, while the reverse sides vary in design color.  Local customers and class participants, please feel free to ask to see these papers next time you're here.  

I used the yummy Silver Foil for the layer behind the sentiment, then brought it all together with 1/8" Silver Ribbon.  

Take a look at the Baker's Box Thinlits in action...

I hope this has tweaked your creative spirit today!  It's my pleasure to help you in any way that I can!

Red Hot Box!

How long has it been since you created something with a "window"?   Well, this little gifty came about via a challenge to create a window card using any SU punch or punches.

So that's what I did ...
... except I jumped from 'card' to 'box', as you can see.   ;)

Punches, punches ... which or how many punches?  Let's see:  1 3/8” Circle Punch on the inside, plus my 1 3/4” Scallop Circle Punch for the blossom top.   Finally, I had to toss in my frequent go-to Bitty Banners Framelits & Itty Bitty Banners stamp set for the sentiment .. ... of course!

I have a long-lived love affair with flowers, plus all things growing green.  Sometimes it insists on coming out when I'm papercrafting, as shown in this project.  My blossom is merely layers of scallop punched paper from the Polka Dot Parade designer papers, made with the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch and held together with a cute little 1/8" Mini Brad.  And before I forget it .. you'll need SU's fabulously clear Window Sheets for the 'window'.
