At first when i saw the Painted blooms suite in the spring/ summer catalogue i wasn’t immediately won over. It took a while to make up my mind about it but the more projects i saw being made using it the more it grew on me and i bought the paper, the stamp set and the embossing folder and i LOVE it. I fell for the patterns, the colours, the stamps and its so versatile. Just gorgeous.
In amongst the varying patterns of the dsp i found this one and it looks like a scene of a country garden. I had to use it, im not a scrap book girl which this page would be lovely as, as a complete page but i wanted to use the design as much as i could so i made it into a lid. It really shows off the beautiful design and it doesnt need much else to finish it off. seriously you get to get this i highly recommend it. I used the measurements from one of Sams (pootles) card boxes (which i will put below for you).
I love it and its stood on my desk now and i keep looking at it for that glimpse of sunshine and flowers. I dont think i want to part with it so thats where it will stay.
The products i used are
Cardstock – Rose Red A4 Card Stock
Stamp set – Painted Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set
Blackberry Bliss thick bakers twine (free sab item) Basic Pearl Accents
Punches – Scalloped Tag Topper Punch
The measurements are below and the link to Sams card box is here
So for the lid you need dsp that measures 8 1/16″ x 6 5/16″ (20.4cm x 16cm) Score at 3/4″ (1.9cm) on all four sides
For the base your cardstock should measure 9 1/2″ x 7 3/4″ (24.1cm x 19.6cm) score this at 1 1/2″ (3.8cm) on all four sides. Then like all boxes and lids trim up each corner square to form the tabs and stick them to the walls of the lid or base. I added a tag but its up to you if you wanted to add any detail or leave it plain.
The finished size of the box is 5″ x 6 1/2″ x 3.8″ (12.7cm x 16.5cm x 3.8cm)
Have a lovely day
