Open Top Box Gallery



Lots of great samples this week! We hope you found this project easy yet enjoyable.

For my second sample I was inspired by the Merry & Bright set from Papertrey Ink. I just loved the shape of these holiday trees. I used a 12x12 sheet of cardstock and made each side 4x4. I used my Coluzzle to round the tops of each side and nestled them together on top. I was inspired by Kristina Werner's Challenge for the colours and of course, I glittered the pants off it (not that you can tell from the photos, however).

For Pam's second sample....

She went for a faux metal basket. This little box was made with gold card stock and embossed with gold embossing powder. The little snowflake stamp is from the set "Rustic Snowflakes" from Papertrey Ink. A simple 6" x 1" strip of paper makes the handle for this little basket. A scalloped punch for the tops and threading some organdy ribbon through the side holes finishes off this project.

Now for our winner this week. Congratulations to ...
