This week’s Bloggers Challenge was to make a triangle box. I have to admit I’d never made one before and was initially a bit intimidated, but a challenge is a challenge, and I was up for it.
I downloaded the pattern from the Stampin’ Up!® demo web site, and printed it out on Cameo Coral cardstock. I then cut it out, used a ruler and bone folder to score the folding lines, and then used the bone folder to make my folds nice and crisp.
I used one of my brand new Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens (from Jacksonbelle Embellishments)-they are so cool! They are nine in a 9 x 9" box that has a slideout tray for storing them. I laid one of the stencils over the right side of box and spritzed with Cherub Pink Glimmer Mist, which is actually more of a coral color. I dried it with my heat gun and assembled.
I punched the scalloped circle out of Cosmo Cricket’s new Honey Pie designer paper using the scallop circle punch from SU!®, and then punched the word "Spring" out of one of the prints using the Word Window punch, also from SU!®. I adhered that to the front of the box, and then punch two holes in the top flaps using the Double Circle punch. I threaded two strands of narrow organdy ribbon (light yellow and light peach) through the holes with a large needle and tied them in a bow. To finish off my creation I used Lemon Yellow Liquid Pearls to dot the center of the flowers on the printed paper.
