More Box Fun..

Sorry for the lack of variety...I know I just posted one of these boxes. With these colors as well. But what can I say?! I am OBSESSED with these boxes now. :) They are SO much fun and so stylish. And HEY! I used a few things on special right now. These boxes are part of the "Buy $50.00 in product from the Holiday Guide and get a free Decor Element" promotion you can read about HERE. And the stamp set and Scallop Square punch I used are part of the FABULOUS Holiday Extravaganza you can read about HERE. (You can get BOTH this Four Square stamp set AND the Scallop Square punch for LESS THAN you can normally buy JUST the punch for!!!!) OH!!! And the ribbon is part of the Holiday Extravaganza as well. (You get a roll of this color (Rose Red) AND a roll of Bashful Blue 1" Double Stitched Ribbon for just a bit more than you normally pay for just ONE roll!!!) Here are the pictures of the box...

On this one, I didn't make a ribbon closure. I just tied the ribbon around the top of the box. You don't have to un-tie it to open it. You just flip up the magnetic flap and it opens. Here is a side view...
Ok...so you may be wondering what that Designer Series Paper is. Well let me tell you...it is FUN!!! This is the "Bride Speciality" Designer Series Paper! Yes...I know...it is all white when you get it. Well....all I did was ink up my brayer in Pretty in Pink ink and run it over the paper a few times. The small line is indented a bit so the ink just gets on the wider line that sits up a bit higher. Now you can have Designer Series Paper in ANY color! Seriously.....IN LOVE with this right now! :) It is SO pretty! I wish you could see how pretty it really is in person. The camera just doesn't capture it's pure beauty! :) Here is the box when you open it...

And yes! I have a set of more 3x3 cards in this box! These are made with the same supplies as the top of the box is decorated. More of that yummy Bride paper inked with Pretty in Pink, Rose Red 1" Double Stitched Ribbon, the Four Square Stamp Set, and the Scallop Square punch.
Here is a pic of all the cards with coordinating envelopes...
And two of the cards close up...
If you look closely at the square, you can see that I stamped each image twice...once on Whisper White (which I punched out with the 1 1/4" Square punch) and once on Pretty in Pink. With the Pretty in Pink one...I just cut out the part I wanted and adhered it to the square with a dimensional.
Here are the next two cards...
And here is a close-up of the "hi" card. You can see the flower is the part I cut out of the Pretty in Pink and adhered with a dimensional...
Then a close-up of the Happy Birthday one. This one I was really trying to get the paper and how shiny it is. But you can also see the "happy" part at the top...
This was such a fun project and now I have a great gift set to give! The receiver then has a "Happy Birthday" card, a "Thanks" card, a "Hi" card, and a "Congrats" card. I really am loving this project. Seriously...I might cuddle with this one tonight. :) (Am I the only one that wants to cuddle with some of the projects they make?! :) Hehe. ) Come over and see it in person...anyone that wants to! :) It's so pretty in real life!!

Thanks for visiting and hope you enjoy!
