Hello everyone! We have a new exciting challenge for you this week at Digital Pencil Too and hope many of you will be happy to play along: "Anything but a Card"! So, time for us to think outside the box for a minute and make something different using one of Mo's gorgeous images.
Ever since I've bought my Scor-pal I've been dreaming of making lots of boxes. Now was the time for me to try a new one. I wanted it to be a candy holder for a friend of mine who celebrated her birthday 2 weeks ago...lol. Which is worse is that I made this box about a week ago and half of the candies are gone...:) Hopefully I shall refill it and give it to her one day:)
The peek-a-boo box template is a design by the very talented Brenda Quintana and you can find it on the Splitcoaststampers site. I changed the dimensions as I wanted my box to be bigger- so the size of the cardstock is 8"x19". The upper side of the box will then be 4"x4" just enough to fit this adorable Mo Manning image- Bronte wants it now- one of those images which stick with me and always bring a smile on my face.
Here's a picture of the template in case someone wants to try this out. Click on the picture to enlarge it- hope you can see the dimensions, sorry for having written them in pencil:(. In case you can't read the sizes- they are 2"-4"-2"-4"-2"-4"-1"-horizontally, and 2"-4"-2" vertically. Hope that makes sense.
