Earlier in November I had the privilege of teaching at the Creative Inkers’ Auckland Extravaganza. As part of that each demonstrator makes a gift for our customers.
For my lovely ladies I made this box using the glorious Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper. This paper has a white background with metallic foil designs. The advantage of having the white background, it the ability for this take be inked/sponge with any colour. In this instance, I used Night of Navy cardstock for the base and sponge the Year of Cheer with Night of Navy ink which really made the cooper and champagne foil pop.
Topped with an embellishment made using the Bow Builder Punch on a Stitched Circle of Night of Navy and just a bit of Copper Trim. In the catalogue the Copper Trim looks like a narrow ribbon, and it is but…… it can be spread out to create a mesh ribbon, which is what I have done in this case.
This box was inspired by a similar box created by Crafty Caroline but I have changed the measurements and reduced the amount cardstock used to create the lid (I tend to be quite frugal when I can) , but the princple is the same. Just realised that I was so frugal that I calculated the measurements and wrote them on the back of an envelope and now I can’t find them. They will turn up and when they do, I’ll add them to this post.
If you live in New Zealand all supplies used to create these projects can be purchased HERE.
