I must have jinxed myself! So I made this cute little box a couple days ago, with the intention of filling it with Cold-Eeze lozenges and giving it to whomever became sick next. The jinx? I'M SICK! I've come done with a stinky icky yucky cold and I just know it is going to get worse before getting better... they always do! Regardless... I still like the box... and I'll try not to sneeze on it.
Quick notes: the box is actually a set of die cuts that Donna from K & A Die Cuts sent me to play with. Yup, this isn't the only little box that I have been decorating! But back to the instructions. Stamp the umbrella from A Little Birdie Told Me on Whisper White card stock and again on a scrap of Ginger Blossom Designer paper. Trim the second image and adhere to the Whisper White piece. Add the first part of the sentiment next to the umbrella and the second part on Creamy Caramel cardstock. Paper pierce the Creamy Caramel layer and add black grosgrain ribbon. Mat the Whisper White layer on Real Red and adhere to the Creamy Caramel with dimensionals. Cut a strip of Ginger Blossom Designer paper and adhere around box before adding main image. From one side of the cover punch an opening with the 1/2" circle punch (just a little peekaboo opening). Super-duper easy!
