Wow, how did it get to be Wednesday already! Time is just flying by! Wednesday means it’s time for another Wild Flower Wednesday challenge and this week we have a super fun challenge for you called Box it Up! We want you to create anything that includes a box… it can be altered or from a template or anything your imagination thinks up but it needs to be a box! Now if you are looking for a starting place well I have a surprise for you! The uber fabulous and generous Leigh Ann Baird is providing you with a free template to try! You can grab that template over at the Wild Flower Patch blog.
Here’s my project for this week. I used Leigh Ann’s Able Gable Template to make my box. I used the PDF version as I don’t have a custom cutter. It was super easy to cut out and I LOVE the way it turned out!
To decorate the my plain white box I started with some light green card stock that perfectly matched this super cute paper from My Mind’s Eye. I colored the flowers (which are a Wild Flower Patch freebie over at Paper Craft Planet) with Copics and cute them out. I mounted them on a circle I cut out using my Nesties Ovals small and sponged with Tattered Rose Distress Ink. I added a bit of ribbon and some pearls for the flower centers and it was done! I need to make a matching birthday card to go with this because I know exactly who is getting this box. 😀
Here’s a closer peek at those flowers:
Now be sure to go check out what the rest of the Wild Flower Patch girls are up too! They have some amazing creations this week!
