I Did IT!!

So, if you are familiar with my blog, and you actually read my posts, you probably already know that I am not a technique-y sorta girl. I love to look, but never make....don't know why though, guess it is just who I am. When I saw that today's Technique Lover's Challenge at SCS was to make this cute LITTLE round top box, I decided to go for couldn't hurt that much right? So I used the template from the challenge, and printed it out on white paper. I then cut it out and traced it onto Kraft paper. I wanted to play in Danielle's Weekly Challenge for Paper Pretties, so I had to use Kraft, White and one other color....obviously, since I am in LOVE with it, I chose Pink Pirouette. I cut it out of the Kraft paper and used my Scor Pal to score the fold lines. I then trace JUST the rounded back onto a piece of Kraft DSP and cut it out a tiny bit smaller than the back of the box to give it a layer. For the box, I used some Memento Rich Cocoa ink to stamp my cookies all over the box. I then added a piece of wide Pink Pirouette grosgrain around the hole base. On top of that, I added my sentiment, which was cut out using my Cuttlebug and the Ribbon Slide tag dies from Spellbinders. My main image is from the Paper Pretties set, Sweets for the Sweet. I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa and then colored it with my Copics. I added some piercing, and buttons from SU. The filling inside was a strip of Pink Pirouette that I ran through my crimper and then cut in tiny strips with my paper cutter.

Well, the native(Jared,hehe) is getting restless so I better go!! Be sure to check out both challenges and have a great day!!
