Hello again, stamping friend!
I love it when I’m able to share an idea or project, that sparks the creative bug in someone else.
Last week, during our Wacky Watercooler 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop, I shared the fold-flat box that I made; here’s a picture to refresh your memory:
And a side view:
You can read the full post HERE, if you’d like.
Anyway, I shared this box with my team members, and Margaret P., who I know loves making special boxes & fancy folds took this idea and ran with it!
Aren’t these boxes amazing?! I just love the different colours and papers that Margaret used (and yes, it’s okay that they’re not all SU! papers), and the different belly bands.
Those little flip-flops on the front right box are so cute! So you see, you can customize these boxes to suit the occasion, and the recipient; and of course, whatever paper and decorations you have on hand to make them.
These boxes really are quite easy to make (just read the original post, and I have the link there for the video tutorial); you’re only limited by your imagination. I know that another of my team members, Lynn K., has tried making these as well; hopefully she’ll have a picture to share with me soon.
What’s your new favourite thing to make? I’d love to hear what you’re working on now, or something you’ve always wanted to try out. Just leave me a comment 🙂
I’ll be back again tomorrow with more sharing. Oh – in case you’re wondering; I did visit my Dad in the hospital; other than the fact that he has a broken hip, and is basically immobile, he’s in pretty good spirits. His surgery will happen tomorrow – we’re just not sure what time! Long weekend, combined with shortage or orthopaedic surgeons = unknown schedules 🙁
Until next time – happy stamping!
