Good morning. Welcome to Day 2 with Robin Parker. Today Robin has a really cute candy box to share with us.
I am having so much fun being the Guest Designer and using the new June releases for JustRite Papercraft.
The project for today is a candy box. First I folded my piece of cream cardstock in half. Then I used the “Romantic Rectangle” by Spellbinders, to cut out my middle and top with the sides still connected to create the lid. I cut out another rectangle for the bottom of my box. Next, I cut out 2 strips of cream cardstock 2 ½ X 9 inches. Score both strips at 3 ½ on your Scor-Pal. I then glued the two strips together to create a rectangle. My next step is to glue the top and bottom to the sides. And your box is ready to decorate. To decorate this box I used “Floral Vintage Labels Two” to create the triangles. I stamped the design with Versamark ink and used orange embossing powder and heat gun to create the ornate design. I did this twenty times and cut each out. I glued them to the top and bottom on the side of box. Next, I stamped the flower from the same stamp set twice with black Marvy ink. Colored both with Copic markers and cut out each petal on one image. Then, I glued the cut out pieces onto the other colored image to raise my petals to look more real. I stamped the symbol from “Graceful Monogram” with Versamark ink and embossed with the orange embossing powder. I did this ten times and cut them out. I glued them to the center of my triangles and on the corners of the top lid. The frames on the top of the box are created with “Winged Vintage Labels Two & Three”, “Vintage Labels Two” and “Vintage Labels Three Dies”. I stamped them with the Versamark ink and embossed them with orange embossing powder. I glued my flower onto the center of the top frame. I used pop dot adhesives to raise the frames.
On the inside of the lid, I used “Grateful Hearts Vintage Label Two” and “Vintage Labels Two Dies” to create the frame and sentiment. I added Recollection decorative pearls to the outer edge on the inside opening. My finishing touches are small, medium and large pearls.
