Hello Crafting Friends!
How was your weekend? Did you get any crafting time done? I did manage to make 2 3D boxes. I never do 3D crafts. Not because I don’t want to, but because I get stuck in crafting ruts. Does that ever happen to you? Do you ever just get into doing what is natural for you or that you’ve gotten used to? One of my go to techniques is heat embossing. I love it! I sorta backed off it since I think I over do it!
Well, last week, a demonstrator friend of mine, Linda Moore, challenged me to step out of my comfort zone. So, that’s why I did the 3D boxes. I really loved doing it, too! I was surprised how much I really loved making them.
I used the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set. I love the sentiments from this set for a little chocolate gift box and a little jar of candies. I used the Ornate Garden DSP for the bling on the outside of the larger box. It just looks so fancy. I used the Whisper White 5/8” Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to tie them all together. I added a few gems from the Champagne Rhinestones Basic Jewels to add a little shine.
I think I’m gonna have to make so many more like this! They really are fun!
I’ll be back later this week with something a little different… tune in to see what that might mean!
Until then, Happy Crafting!
