Anyway, Inge's challenge is called Wrap it up! Create anything that can hold something...candy holder, pencil holder, box, gift bag...anything! Just make sure to use a High Hopes Rubber Stamp for your image!
I wanted to create a new box template. Something that I can hold more stuff or a box that holds my larger 5 1/2" square cards. So, I got out some paper and pencil and worked out the dimensions...
I am so thrilled with how this turned out (especially since it worked on the first try)! The box measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 2 3/4" tall. I will try to create a tutorial for you soon. I will have to make another box since I didn't take photos of this one as I was making it.
I used the awesome Weekend Sketch over at Beate John's blog Fresh & Fun. I thought it would really work nice for the top of the box...
I used SU Ridinghood Red for the box base (Retired - I stocked up on a few packs before they retired). The DP is SU Christmas Cocoa Specialty Paper from the Holiday Mini. The white Damask design is actually flocked!! I used the Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities for the layers and some Making Memories ribbon (I LOVE this ribbon and I only have about 6" left).
The image is Sitting Santa available through my store Stamp and Create. I embossed Santa in black onto Watercolor paper and watercolored him using Twinkling H2Os. I added some Liquid Applique to his coat and hat.
For the last detail, I added some awesome pom-pom ribbon I got from Joann's awhile ago.
Now it's your turn to play along. Here are a few tutorials on boxes, bags, and wrappers that I have created in the past if you want to get some ideas....
Just make sure to add a High Hopes image (it can even be a tag) in order to play along. Don't forget to link your project to the High Hopes Challenge to be entered into the drawing for the FREE stamps!! And if you upload your project to SCS, make sure to use keyword HHC44!
Edited to say...We now have Mr. Linky! Make sure to link your card through Mr. Linky NOT in the comment section on the Challenge Post.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Stamping!
