Have you missed us over at SCACD? I hope so. We've had a long holiday break and I hope you all have had as well. Well - the rest is over and it's time to get into that craftroom again! The very first TIOT for 2010 is here and Suzanne challenged us to create a Welcome card/project.
I decided to make 4 gift boxes. This time they are filled with chocolate and yes - I had too many (bye, bye New Years Eve promise, hm...... nope - I've been shoveling sooo much snow lately - so I think I deserved them...hihi......)
The reason why I made 4 was to maximize the use of one cardstock. So I cut one blue cardstock into 4 pieces. Scored each side at 1". Cut and put the box bases together.
Then I picked out 4 wonderful 6"x6" DPs from my Lemonade DP.
Scored each side of them at 7/8". Used my Spellbinders to cut out a window in the lid. I wanted different ones - so that's nice that Susana has so many of them in her store;-)
Covered the windows with acetate. Cut and put the lids together.
Filled the boxes with Twist (a mix of chocolates made for the Scandinavian market - the Norwegians are eating more than us in Sweden - why is that Aud?? :-)
Coloured Atlantia, Cherry Blossom, Fashionista and Marianne with my copics. Cut them out with my Spellbinders and added them on 3d dots onto the "left-overs" from the lid window.
I needed roses of course to go on top of the boxes. I girl can't live without flowers - right?
Well - I hope you've seen that Susana now have the Prima Roses in her store - so make sure that you get your hands on your favourite colours. You will sooo love them - I promise!
Finally I attached the sentiment from SU and ribbon from stash.
These boxes are made for my nieces to give to their friends - and when the chocolate is gone - they can always use the gift boxes to fill with other things matching the images - voucher for shopping, a cell phone, ipod, necklace........ Well - the list can go on and on. I do find these images so versatile and also perfect to use for teenagers and us in our 20++ :-)
Hope you like them and make sure to check out what the rest of the DTs been up to!
To Susana and my DT girlfriends I say: WELCOME BACK GIRLS! I've missed you!
