In August at my upline Executive Terri's wonderful quarterly meeting we had a 3D swap using Big Shot dies. For some reason I am loving this color combination, and wanted something to coordinate with the colors. I know, working backwards a little. Plus I just love this little box and the stamp set (another one of my new favorites). I included green tea for a get well gift.

Cut out the soft suede box using the Bitty Box Big Shot die. Assemble box and adhere flaps. Run the baja breeze strip through the crimper and sponge edges with soft suede ink. Wrap around box and adhere closed with sticky strip. Stamp tea pot on Naturals paper using Early Expresso. Punch out image with circle punch and sponge edges with Soft Suede. Run Early Expresso paper through Dotted embossing folder using Big Shot. Punch out using scallop circle punch. Stamp and punch out Perk Up greeting on Naturals paper. Sponge edges with Soft Suede. Adhere circle image to scallop image using dimensionals. Adhere that entire image to crimped paper using dimensionals. Pierce through entire assembly and place brad. Run thread through tag and around brad. Lightly tape greeting to assembly. Punch out heart and sponge edges. Adhere to project.

I made 24 of these cute little buggers for that meeting. I wanted a few extra for just in case gifts. I am learning it is wise to always make a few extra especially when it is so cute!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Keep being creative, Sandy
