Hello all!! I thought it was time for a technique challenge this week and this round top box is the perfect one!!
This little box was the featured project for the TLC on SCS the week of 2-16-2009 - #208. Click on the link for the thread and you'll find all the directions and the template for the box. One sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock will make the body of the box!! If you have a printer that will cooperate when you put cardstock through it, you can print directly on it! My printer gets a little picky about the cardstock it likes to work with!!
My sample here I made for my Stampin' Sister with UDI. My box is made from Confetti Cream and my accent colors are Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Hawaii Papaya dsp. The band goes all around the base of the box.
I used my circles scallops #2 for each of the scallops. I roughed up the edges a bit with my cutter kit and pierced the scallops with my piercing tool.
I used Flight of the Butterfly on here and topped it off with a Button Bouquet in Kiwi and one of the new library clips with white taffeta!! I think I put about 10 pieces of mini chocolates in here.
One additional thing I did was place an extra piece of cardstock on the inside bottom base for a little more support.
