Bloggers Challenge 42 – Triangle Box

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 Stencil20images 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.
