Springin' Into Things....

Happy Saturday, Peeps!

I'm SO excited to share this project with you today!  Woot!
I don't know if you do "Pinterest" (or if you've even heard of it!) but I'm SO addicted.  A few weeks ago I found a cool template for a box made from one sheet of 12x12 Designer Series Paper.  I tried it and I LOVE IT!  I have so many projects in my poor, little brain that I am just itching to bring to life.
This is the first of many I'm sure.  

Here's what I came up with....After I show you my finished project, I'll post the photo of how to fold the box...


I made my box into a little Easter basket.  Here's a view from above...


To make the handle I just punched a strip of Whisper White card stock using the Lace Ribbon Border Punch.

Here's another view....


The flowers are made using a 1" circle punch and a little glue.  That's a "newbie" for me too.  I'm hoping to do a video tutorial on these little cuties soon.  Inside the basket is a bag of M&M's and a sweet, little chapstick holder decorated with a simple, little punch art bunny.  Here's a shot of the chapstick holder from the inside....


So fun!  There are SO many ways to use this little box.  Is your brain kicking into high gear like mine??  Alright...Here's the photo tutorial I followed.  This is NOT my original idea.  I found it on Pinterest like I said and the website it linked me to is NOT in English!  LOL  I just followed the photo to make mine.


Ok....what are you waiting for?  Spring is in the air and it's the perfect time to try something new, right?

  2. I've used this box before, one Christmas when I made tile coasters for my husband's co-workers, even made a lid, just cut off about 1/8" for the top, folded the same way! Of course, your's is decorated much cuter than the ones I made! Adorable!
