The Paper Craft Planet's Progressive challenge this month is to use Sassy Studio's Sock Hop image and a Happy Birthday Theme.
I decided to make a small heart gift box for the backdrop of my image. Using the Heart Box template I traced and cut out all of the pieces of the box, then cut patterned papers to fit the sides, lid and bottom. I forgot how long it takes to hand cut all the elements out instead of using my Cricut.
Next I printed out my Sassy Studio image and colored her in. I thought she need some definition so I glued her to a piece of black cardstock and cut her out again. She now stands out better against the box.
For my box top I pulled out my jar of premade flowers and selected a few that went with the colors on the box. A few bead and scraps of ribbon tucked around and my lid is finished.
I wrapped the sentiment around a toothpick, added a bead to the top and my Happy Birthday Flag is complete.
Thanks for stopping by.
