I originally started to work on something baby themed like the inspiration photo but it just wasn’t working out. Then I remember that I had cut and scored some boxes in Certainly Celery for a class (a long time ago) and didn’t use them because I cut them all the wrong size. I saved them thinking I could use them for a future project. I never did make another project so I decided since Certainly Celery was one of the colors in this weeks challenge I should pull out one of those cut boxes and work with it. That was exactly what I did – but I realized this picture doesn’t even look like a box it just looks like a card front – but it really is a tall skinny box.
I do like these colors together – they are very soft – I guess that’s why they were in a baby’s room. So the box is 6″ tall and 4″ wide and 1″ deep. The opening is at the top and you could fit pictures inside or some of the Stampin’ Up! embellishments – the Baker’s Twine fits nicely inside. The front panel is the Soft Suede and I stamped the stem from For All You Do and the grass from Inspired by Nature in Soft Suede ink across the bottom. Then I stamped the flowers and butterfly on Very Vanilla card stock in the remaining colors and cut them all out. The Certainly Celery flower used the Kissing Technique – I kissed the flower with the dots that were inked in Soft Suede. I added some Subtle brads and a button to the center of the larger flowers. And I pierced a butterfly trail. I tied some Certainly Celery Taffeta ribbon around the bottom and added a “4 you” tag from Tiny Tags.
That’s this weeks project – I supposed I could have made some cards to fit inside that match the front – but I didn’t so just imagine it instead…… Take a minute to visit the UDI site and play along with us this week.
