Welcome back. Our challenge this week is to create a project. Something other than a card. Our inspiration piece included the below items for examples.
You should have arrived from Liz's blogsite. She and I were working together last Saturday, so we have seen each other's creations. You will like hers. Here is what I have created.
This is a box of sorts that can be used for different purposes. I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. The Mini Treat Bag is usually a very thin bag which can be used to insert perhaps a candy bar, or a card. Normally you would cut one large piece and one small piece and put it together as instructed. That will create a flat envelope style holder. However, if you use the large piece and cut it twice you can put it together to make the opening up to about an inch and a half and have room for larger inserts. Mine here is about an inch thick. My picture shows a candy bar, but I plan to put not only the candy bar in the box, but also a Valentine card, or maybe a couple candy bars. I haven't made a final decision yet. Other times when I have made this box I've inserted 6 cards and I gave the package as a gift. Or when I do a school fund raiser I have included it as a door prize with a few Stampin'Up! items inserted. I love this die and use it often. The paper I used is Pop of Pink Specialty paper and I also used gold glimmer paper for the heart background piece. I hope you like my non-card creation.
Now you should continue to Robbie's blogsite, I can't wait to see what she has done. Let's go.
