Shall I tell you a funny story?
I made these boxes to send out to three lovely members of my Stampin' Up team who celebrated their first year anniversary as demonstrators in January.
I made two in advance and then the third during the video. I actually made the first two before the gifts had arrived so I just stuffed them with some bubble wrap so they wouldn't get crushed while I stored them.
Fast forward a few weeks and of course I sent out two of the boxes without the gifts - cue puzzled emails from the ladies thanking me for the box but politely asking if there should have been anything inside!
Can I blame baby brain when Alex is nearly 7 months old?
Anyway - onto the box. I am really pleased with how these turned out. I have used the gorgeous Inside the Lines DSP which you can get for FREE at the moment! Click HERE to find out how.
I also love the pop of colour from the bakers twine and the number, created using the Large Number's framelits - watch the video HERE to see an easy technique to build up that depth.
I made three different colours, Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush and Melon Mambo - I think all three look great - do you have a favourite?
Of course I had to make a matching card - come back and see that tomorrow.
