Hopefully yesterday's sneak peek got you excited to see today's project for the latest Pals Paper Arts challenge! I always love a color challenge and hope that you do too! As is often the case, I've created a non-card project to share with you and I hope you'll take this one and use it for one of the next gifts you give away! Here it is:
The Extra Large Gift Boxes in the holiday catalog are fabulous --- so many possibilities for what you could place inside! And I love the 6" x 6" top for decorating! Let me share a couple detailed images for you and a couple little tricks behind my work:
And the tricks:
Good to Know - Stampgoodness Tips:
- Before mounting the flower embellishment, cut two parallel slits in Top Note die cut shape to thread the ribbon through. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to place the flower on top making sure not to land on the ribbon itself...this will allow the gift recipient to re-use the ribbon if they wish.
- If you use only ribbon (as I initially planned to do), you can tuck the ribbon ends into the bottom of the box therefor making the package easy to open and also rendering the ribbon easy to re-use. Ulitmately I decided I wanted the wrapping to be more substantial and put together 2 strips of 12" x 2" Designer Series Paper and wrapped that around the box.
If you've not yet guessed the colors for this challenge, here you go:
Love this combo of Elegant Eggplant, Smoky Slate, and Very Vanilla! It looks great on the Kraft box and I think is a palette that you could use for either a masculine or feminine project! What sort of project would you most likely make with this color combo?
