March Class Photos - Boxes Part 1

Finally had a chance to take photos and edit them for posting! Here's three of the seven boxes that we made this past weekend. The first box is a favorite of mine and it is so easy peasy! You use four SU die cut envelopes and attach them by the tabs. I reinforced the box by cutting a square and attaching it on the outside bottom of the box and two strips to reinforce the inside of the box. Curly punch label and matching stamp used here as well as the sentiment "sweets" from Sweet Sampler stamp set. The strip of DP came from the pack called Delicate Dots and you can earn that FREE from our sale-a-bration promotion going on NOW through the end of March!! I love this paper pack because the designs are so sweet! Here's a close-up of the embellishment for the box. We finished off this box with a bag of yummy animal cookies. Oh! the ribbon is also something you can earn through our SAB sale!
This cool box was recommended by my friend Joyce. The idea came from the Scor-Pal website and was created by Vicki Hook. We used our jumbo roller called Kindness on this box and closed it with some organdy ribbon and flowers cut by the cricut...I really wanted this box to be simple. One reason is that although it is a simple concept, the cutting can be kind of confusing.
Here's a look at the box when opened.
I love this bag with scallops sizzix die! We used barely banana cs for this one and close to cocoa. I was waiting for my textured plates but they never arrived so had to use my good ol' cuttlebug embossing folder as a stand by. We used the paisley folder. Scallop circle punch and 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches embellished this box. The stamped image is from a set called polka dot punches, another SAB set you can earn for FREE!
Here's a side view of this box. I closed it with velcro dots.
Stay tuned for Part II, the rest of the boxes!! I also can't wait to show you some more beautiful raks I received. Talk about being so blessed with good friends!! Have a great day!
