More projects for this months Let's Squash It!! challenge #6
- Use your floral Embossing Folders with a Box.
I've made two carton boxes for the grand daughters for Easter... decorated the sides with a floral edge from the Embossing Folder - a Papercraft Essentials magazine freebie - Meadow Flowers
and watercoloured the flowers.
Measured up, scored and cut out the carton boxes in coloured card and some strips of white card for the sides.The embossing folder was square, so I position my strips of card to just capture the embossing along one edge, then softly blended green and blue over the strip and used my Distress Oxides to watercolour the flowers.
I embossed the colourful purple and pink card from my stash with the Embossing Folder - Couture Creations - Crazy Daisy, then cut, scored and folded it to make a cube with out a lid... then repeated this using purple card.
Next I used an Spellbinders - Big Scalloped Circle die to cut openings in the four sides, then constructed the cube.... attached a loop of matching ribbon and slid one inside the other.
There is still time for you to join in the Squash It fun... so dig out you beloved Embossing Folders and Let's see what you can create.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.... have a Wonderful Creative weekend
