Boxes #3 project

This Decorative Box was our 3rd project we made last Saturday.
I wanted it to have a different look so, I used the Martha Stewart
Lattice Punch on the bottom of the top and I loved how it turned out.
This box is a nice size for a small gift, box of candy or even something
truly special for that special person.

One of my favorite JustRite Stamps is their new small Damask Monogram set. I first embossed the C and border and then I used my Large Dauber with SU Ink all over the circle and did a process called Reverse Embossing. After I had completely covered the circle which was cut out using the circle Nestie, I took a paper towel and wiped the ink off. By doing that, the ink did not stick to the embossing.
The inside of the box looks as pretty as the outside because I used double sided Cosmo Cricket paper.

The ribbon is by Lion Ribbon and is wired. It was tied using the Bow Easy. Wired ribbon is great for this kind of project.

We certainly had a great time last Saturday and I plan to have another fun day after the first of the year.
Let me know if you think you might be able to join us some time. I hear rumors that Selma and some of her friends will be coming to a get together next spring. Oh what fun that will be.

Joan -

AWESOME (as today's kids say) - LOL! All kidding aside, what a beautiful presentation that would make. It is something I would keep and use in my studio to store special things. Such a lovely box.
