A Blast From the Past!


Hello and Welcome!

Have you ever found something you made a while ago and thought to yourself, "I did a pretty good job on this!" That's what I thought when I found this triangle box in my Valentine box from last year!

I started with white card stock and rolled the swirls pattern in red. I then cut out the box and inked all the edges. I stamped hearts and the sentiment in SU Real Red Craft ink and punched them out with a scallop punch. All are adhered with dimensionals on each side. The red bow is added to the top with glue dots. I filled these with Valentine candy and shared them with friends. Wonder what I could do with this box this year?!?!? Hmmm...What do you think?

Thanks so much for visiting today and sharing my little blast from the past! I hope you will stop by often and let me know your ideas and suggestions. I will make a new version of this box this year and post the most popular choices!

ETA: I have had several inquiries about the template for this box. Sorry to say I am not computer savvy enough to put the template in this post; but I would be happy to email the template to any who ask. Just use my email address on the sidebar and let me know!

Until later...LOVE YA! and

Blessings to you,
Vicki

  3. Don't you love it when you see something you've created before and you love it...most of the time, I see all the mistakes or think about what I would have done different. If you love then you really know you did a good job!! I agree, you did a wonderful job on this project. Love the swirls...
