Today's project was inspired by the challenge going on at Fussy and Fancy this fortnight which is to use the colors lemon and lavender as per the challenge's name.
This is not a card, it's an adorable little box that holds the wedding charm I bought for my stepdaughter when she got married 6 weeks ago and which I forgot to take to her in Colorado. And then forgot to send to her. Well it'll be a nice surprise, now won't it?
blog as it's a bit tricky to assemble the first time.
It helps to use double-sided paper so it's as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside.
The little yellow "belly band" covers up the slight gap and holds the pieces together.
I used the pansy images from the Inspired By Stamping Summer Flowers set and fashioned the embellishment using a doily die cut, some pearls, and some ribbon. I then attached the piece to the belly band so that the whole band could be slid off the box without destroying it. The flowers were colored with Neocolors and cut out with my Silhouette, thanks to the FREE cut files Joanna includes with many of her stamp sets.
The tag is from the IBS Creative Tags set.
And that is my little project for today. I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope my stepdaughter enjoys her slightly belated little wedding "happy."
