hello my friends - so sorry about yesterday!
I am better and I am so excited to share my new Top Note Box that I created espcially for the Big Shot Blog. I did alot of research on this, and this my firend is an original! I sure you hope you like it.
Oh and the best part, is that I am going to be making a video and sharing it with all of you Saturday! I am so excited, and really nervous he he :) Anyways, so if these instructions are confusing, then you need to come back on Saturday and watch my FIRST ever Video! YHIKES!
Okay, I actually started with a colour challenge on this! he he :)
"This is new to me"
so this is my colour inspiration
so that this makes sense I am actually going to show you my project first!
now I am going to show you how did the box, and them I covered it. I really wanted it to be a stong box. In my video I will be doing the box with a single layer with cardstock.
But this one, I used the cardboard that comes in every DP Package, that most people throw in the garbage he he :)
So I cut that to 9 1/2 x 91/2 to make my base
on the one side, I scored 2 1/2'' and then at 7'' - I did that on two sides to create a square in the center
scrore at 1'' and then at 5 3/4'' again to make a sqaure in the center
okay then I covered it with textured card stock - but I want to show you how I made the top and bottom to be bigger then a regular top note size - cause your box finished measures 5'' x 5''
how cool would it be if you put cards in this cute little box?
doesnt have to be exact okay.
Then you will fold in to four, so fold in half and half again.
then run it thrue your BIG SHOT (Stampin Up)
I am going to take a textured plate and I am going to get rid of those fold marks
okay back to our box now
I covered up the cardboard by cutting strips and scoring them - but like I said the box that I am going to video will only use cardstock
then I did the same thing for the base - but that measurement is
9 3/4 x 5 1/18'' I Scored it at 2 1/2''
it's just like wrapping a Christmas gift - getting some practice for the up and coming season!
coming together very nicley
This box is really hard to photograph!
What do you think?
wanta a video, come on I want to hear from you??
thanks so much for understanding about yesterday, I surely do appreciate
Happy thanksgiving for all my U.S Friends
embossed hug from me
