I have a big post to share with you today full of springy fun, but first, let me say THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of the lovely stampers who joined me on Sunday for the Stamp A Stack for the Troops. They completed all 500 cards (250 of them will go to the troops) in just over 5 hours! You guys did an amazing job and it was so fun to see so many of you all working so hard at your cards. I'll have photos of the pile of cards they created for Friday's post and then the box goes off to our contact at Operation Write Home.
Today, however, I thought it would be fun to share the results of a special request that I received recently. I've posted these boxes before, but they're so fun I figured a new round of them would be nice.
These boxes are inspired by the original creator Elaine. Her creations are far and away more elaborate than mine but she's been more than generous about sharing how to make these charming creations so for that we are grateful. Visit her website...I promise you won't be disappointed!
For mine, I selected from several designer paper assortments that I had on hand and paired them up with a couple colors of coordinating cardstock. An array of punches and dies make up the flowers with a few edge punches and embellies added in as well. I've noted the colors and papers used below each photo of the open boxes.
If you're interested in trying these yourself, click here for a tutorial and be sure to check out Elaine's website for inspiration from all her beautiful creations.
