Since the paper for this project was 1) so cute and 2) not a part of my own personal inventory, I decided to try constructing a box using some of my paper. If I happen to read the instructions wrong and end up with a lopsided box, I would prefer that it be done with paper from my stash and not with this cute paper that Judy entrusted to me........
Isn't this sewing-related paper adorable? This particular paper is one-sided so the bottom of box will be made using the thimble paper and the box top will be the needle/thread paper. How cute is that going to be?
But first, back to me making the box using *my* paper. I actually used two-sided paper ('Tis The Season from Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium collection); however, I made the box (top and bottom) using one side and used the opposite side to line the box.
Let's see how it looks. Here is the bottom of the box -
And a similar looking top (this shows the inside of the box top) -
To "finish" the top of the box, I added a strip of the inside lining paper and adhered a "joy" sentiment. Let's see how it looks.....
Cute isn't it? Okay now so how about the finished box using Judy's papers? Well, since Tom and I are having Thanksgiving dinner with Judy and her hubby, I have decided that Judy and I will have a little papercrafting lesson after dinner. I'm sure she will be excited about that ;o) - I will take a photo of the finished box and post it on a future blog....but until then, keep crafting!
