Wow! It’s been long since we’ve played with our challenge last time. Did you missed us?! 🙂 But we’re back with new sketch and lots of fabby projects to bring you endless ideas and inspirations. So welcome to our 5th sketch challenge! And today’s sketch has been created for us by lovely Cat.

January 16

I love this sketch! And the moment I saw it I had this idea popped in my head. It’s a little bit out off my comfort zone, because I don’t do boxes usually. But I was just dying to make my idea into a project. So here it is:

Valentine's Day Raffaello Box

Isn’t it cute?! This box measures 4 x 3″ and make perfect “home” for Raffaello chocolates

To create my box I took 2 pieces of whisper white that measured: for the lid 7 x 6″ (I trimmed it later slightly) and for the base 6-7/8 x 5-7/8″. I stamped the top piece randomly using Real Red ink pad and flowery stamps from Bloomin’ Love stamp set. When it was done I scored both pieces at 1-1/2″ on each side. After I assembled the base I’ve decided I want my lid to be slightly shorter then the base so I trimmed it 1/2″ on each side. Next I cut on the score lines as you can see on the photos and assembled my box.

I also stamped same design on a piece of white tissue paper, to put it inside of my box. As for the sentiment I’ve stamped it in Real Red again and fussy cut it. But because it would disappear in a “busy” background I die cut a circle from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. I attached it to my box with Tombow adhesive and added my sentiment on top using dimensionals.

Taa-daah! The box is done! And it is just perfect little box for delicious chocolates. Or maybe for a piece of jewellery? What you think?
