Sketch Girls Challenge #10
It is the 15th and a new sketch is up at the Sketch Girl blog. I used the sketch below and the Able Gable template from Perfect Presentation to create this fun box that is begging for cookies or I could put in the cupcake inserts (oh yes this is part of the template; so cool!)...the thoughts of sweets are just zipping around in my head. yummm!!! You can't tell that I am back on the healthy bandwagon?!? I just love sweets and it is so hard to give them up :( I guess I can eat them in moderation one day out of the week (I love cheater day). It helps me keep with it! Anyway this little box only took 2 sheets of cardstock and with the included assembly instruction it was a breeze to put together. I cut this out by hand, but if I had a Silhouette or Cricut it would have been even quicker, since the template are also available in compatible file types. This template and others are available for purchase here.
This sucker came together so quickly. I used a bow for the circle and the bottom half of Journaling card that can be cut from Teresa Collins paper. Love this collection! I topped it off with the heart, courtesy of my scrapbin. I keep a little bin of scrap including patterned paper scraps, things that have been die cut or stamped, parts of unfinished cards. Thanks PTI for reminding of the forgotten bin! The heart was already stamped and punched last year some time. All I had to do was add some bling and a button and I was done.
