Finally got a chance to create and I did this project for Chrissy's Belli Challenge. This week was to use Leaves. And this project sure has that. Love how it turned out. I love the fall of the year anyway and this just adds to that for me. Today with my parents after Mom's doctor's appointment we drove around and looked at the beautiful leaves so this project was really inspired by that and by Julie over at Paper Pleasing Ideas, this is also where you can find the pattern for this box gift bag. I thought it was such a neat idea and when I found this paper I knew I was going to do Chrissy's challenge in this so Thanks goes out to Julie for the awesome template for the Triangle Box and to Chris for the Leaves Challenge.
What fun these boxes are to make and the shape is just out of the box! I love templates that are out of the norm and this is one of them. What a neat idea.
As for what I used in this project, I used SU Choc. Chip, Really Rust and Whisper White card stock. Stamped my image on the Whisper White and colored in with Gamsol and colored pencils. With a paper piercer I pierced around the scallops of the Choc. Chip and Really Rust Scalloped Circles. Cut out the image (Just for Fun Stamp Set) and put pop dots on the back of this piece and the Really Rust Piece. Mounted this to the Choc. Chip. The Just for Fun Stamp Set is retired so if you want that you need to check with your demo and maybe she can find it for you.
The box part I used two designer papers that was Non SU. Glued them back to back so I had double sided paper and it was more stable this way. The inside designer sheet is trees with fall leaves on them also but in much smaller detail. So they matched up pretty well. Got the template from Julie and went to work. Just follow her directions and you have it. For the scalloped top of my box I used a corner rounder and scalloped my edges that was as I don't have the long scalloped edge punch as of yet. It's on my wish list! Then with an 1/8 circle punch I punched in each scallop to keep the details on the scallops the same. Lastly I added SU Satin Choc. Chip Ribbon around the lower half of the box and then added my scalloped image piece to this and it was done. Very simple and I just love the shape.
I hope many of you try this with the leaves for Chrissy's challenge and the template of Julie's. You will love the outcome. Please share with Chris and Julie how yours turns out. Chrissy's challenge is a weekly thing she does each week and I have been missing all the fun. Remember when you make the Leaves Challenge to put CBC36 on it if you upload to Split Coast Stampers and let Chris know on her blog you did. You can also do the same and upload to your blog if you like.
Hope you enjoyed today's project, I know I sure did.
Forgot to tell you how Mom turned out today. She has some fluid on the lungs so they gave her water pills to help rid that. She needs to do more exercises with her legs, which I am to help her do. That will help to build the strength up in her legs so she can walk better and hopefully without falling. We talked with them about the scooter to and that should be on the way. Lack of communication on that one or she would of had it by now he said. So things are looking up for Mom too. Thank you all for the well wishes for Mom.
