My Pink Stamper Challenge #5

This past Saturday, I went to AC Moore because I wanted to buy the Martha Stewart scoring board.  I also bought a few other things since they were having Double Rewards Points for purchases of $25 or more.  Haha, they really get me there!  Anyway, the first thing I made was one of those gateway cards or whatever they're called.  This following item is the SECOND thing I made with my new scoring board!

Challenge #5- Any 3-D item OR if that is too much of a challenge then add a 3-D item on your scrapbook page or card!

I made a box!  I followed the directions and cut out two 8x8 pieces of paper and scored it in the right places, snipped a few edges, and glued it all together.

The flower was cut from Sweet Treats if I'm remembering correctly.  This is actually the same flower I cut for my mom's Mother's Day card.  I like how it came out with the blue (her favorite color is blue), so that's why I decided to stick with it for this one.  I used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder to emboss the biggest petals.

I thought the sides looked a little boring, so I took the same colored paper and punched the flower pattern using one of my new Martha Stewart punches.  I like that it matches the flower on top fairly well!  I also think it brings the entire box together a bit more.

I like knowing that when possible, I can just make a little box for a small gift!  BTW, I love that they take in account that the lid has to be a bit bigger than the bottom so it slips on and off easily!
