I am so excited to share this first project with you!!! Be sure to check out Katie’s, Geny’s and Dawn’s and Lauren’s wonderful project to. I used the Boxed Lunch Template © for my first try with these beautiful templates along with images from Paper Pattern Pieces © and Lunch Box Love Notes ©. The note cards were done with the Lunch Box Love Note © template. I have to tell you I was a bit nervous going into this. I started by printing this with the pdf file and hand cutting it out. I realized very fast that my life would be easier if I had a cricut expression and SCAL software to do my cutting. (Happy Mother’s Day, Birthday and Merry Christmas, good thing none of them have already happened this year.) I love these templates and I am so excited about the possibilities. They come together so quickly and are a blast to decorate. (Click on pics to view them bigger)
Here are some more pictures of my project. I used vellum and Spellbinders dies to make the soft lace to accent the gorgeous polka dot paper from the Darling Dots © collection. I hope you check back with me on May 1st for our group post!!! Enjoy the various pics I took to show off the detail of this project.
I hand crocheted the flowers to add to the beauty of this beautiful box. Half pearls were added to the centers. I used this tutorial on Nicole’s blog to do the flowers using pearl cotton.
The flowers were colored with my copic markers. I used my Cuttlebug pindot folder to add interest to my square large scallop die cut.
The lace is made with vellum and my gorgeous Spellbinders die templates. Love these babies. :)
The edges of my note cards were paper pierced.
I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did making it. Have a great day and enjoy the possibilities!!
