Happy Monday to all!!! We'll get a good start to this new week by announcing the 2 winners of our giveaway. The first one is Sweet Craf-tea Chick (isn't that a cute name?) and the second is our international winner (all the way from Belgium), Saskia!!! Ladies, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your addresses and I'll get these stamps out to you!!!
Over the weekend I did at make 'n take at Cute Stuff...here's the project we did:
It's a little slide box with a shaker top. To get a pattern for this box, please click here. Cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. (I used a blue Marvy oval punch to make the cut out.)
Using double stick tape, adhere a 2" x 2-1/2" piece of acetate to the back of the oval window (as shown above, left)...then, cut thin strips of double stick foam tape and place over acetate piece (right, above). Next, stamp a sentiment on a contrasting paper and punch out with a Marvy (blue) oval punch. Position and glue as shown (below, left). Make sure your sentiment is centered in the window when you fold it up as shown below, right.
Now you can remove the backing paper from the foam tape...sprinkle some confetti/glitter right over the sentiment (keeping the edges free of confetti)...carefully fold and position frame right over sentiment...press down on the foam tape to adhere. Then you just have to decorate your box top...I used a Marvy (blue) oval punch and a (pink) scalloped oval punch to form the frame.
To make the drawer portion of the box, simply apply double stick tape on each of the 4 tabs and fold box together along dotted lines.
I used a 1/8" hole punch to make a hole on one of the sides. Cut a 6" piece of ribbon, fold in half and tie a knot as shown below:
Thread the loop end of the ribbon through the punched hole (from the inside out):
Here are more samples using Ping & Pong:
