Origami Nesting Boxes

I was checking my emails and found this and thought many of you might like to make some boxes. I have made these before and they are wonderful for gift giving.
Martha Stewart website has the full directions for you. I love the dimensions for all the sizes of the boxes without having to figure that out myself.

A Hummingbird Morning Glory

I have got to have the prettiest Morning Glory stamps around. I love these. This one was a bit of a challenge but so fun to do. You know one of those stamps that has no colored image of it. Well once I got it done it seemed that it needed to be brightened up some. So I added sunlight to the whole card and it really made the hummingbird and Morning Glories pop.

Hope you enjoy today's project and get some inspiration from my creations. Hoping this brightens your Spring as well as it did mine. Gives you a warm feeling with the yellow glow.

Supplies needed for this project:
Crayola Colored Pencils & Q-tips
Whisper White, black and Lovely Lilac card stock

Stamp with black your image on the Whisper White card stock, color in with gamsol and colored pencils to what you like. In this picture the hummingbird has some green on him to but for some reason my scanner did not pick that up. When I was done I thought it had needed that light so I used Golden Rod for the Yellow sunlight effect.
Trim down and mount to black card stock.
My main card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4, then mount the image with the black layer on that and you all finished with a really nice card.
Thanks LuJean for the stamp, I love working with it.
