Hi all and Happy Labor Day! For those in the U.S., I hope you have had a wonderfully relaxing weekend. As I type this, I'm enjoying some much needed R & R with family! I did have some time to create this weekend and it was just in time for something new and fun -- a Scor-Pal Designer Challenge! Play along and you could not only get a chance at winning some fun goodies, but you just might be picked to be a guest designer!
THE CHALLENGE: This month's challenge was to create something "out of the box" -- in other words, some sort of box with your trusty Scor-Pal or Scor-Buddy! You can read up on the challenge HERE!
On to my project! Being that the challenge is to make a box, I spent quite a bit of time surfing through the projects library at Scor-Pal.com. I ultimately picked THIS project called Haunted Treat Bag. I thought it was cute! I chose a fall theme for my project and since I knew I wanted to include some chocolate covered sunflower seeds, I picked Flourishes Sunflowers set. Here's a peek before I put it all together!
If you want step-by-step instructions, please click on the link above, Teresa Payne did a wonderful job!
I stamped my sunflower on Flourishes Classic White card stock and then colored it up with Copic Markers using the Sunflower, Flesh Tones 2, Poppy and Evergreen Collections grouped by Flourishes. I cut it out and then popped it up using foam tape onto my bag/box front. I did add something a little extra to my project. I cut a piece of brown card stock to measure 4 by 3 and -- laying the piece with the 4" a the top of my Scor-Pal, I scored at the 2" line and then used a decorative border punchy to edge the piece. I thought this would be a cute topper. Add a sentiment and some twine to secure and.... viola!
Here's a look at the finished project!
One of my friends just had a birthday this weekend and next week we have a lunch date, I'm going to slip a gift card inside too and hope she enjoys!
