Hi friends! Hump Day has rolled around again and we’re almost to the end of March already! I’m delighted to be back on the ScraPerfect Blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! First order of business is to let you know that this post contains affiliate links. I have a fun project to share today – a box card bouquet of flowers in a mason jar! Those who know me know that I’m a real sucker for fancy folds and I’m always on the look-out for new ones to try! ;)
I subscribe to a variety of email newsletters and when I saw this adorable box card, I just HAD to have the cut file! I started by separating all the elements in the cut file and cutting them with my Scan N Cut from various colors of cardstock. I put the bouquet together first, adhering the pieces with Best Glue Ever with a No-Clog Writing Cap. Using one of the Wheels of Embellies collections, I added a Gold ‘n Pearl gemstone to the center of the rose in the bouquet using Embellie Gellie. The Gold ‘n Pearls are my new favorite embellishment, and I can’t talk enough about how fabulous the Embellie Gellie is… just mold a small ball on the end of the stick and you have a wonderful pick-up tool that ‘grabs’ your small embellishment from your desk and releases onto your project. It’s really amazing stuff! ;)
I then hand-cut the three acetate pieces and adhered the outer mason jar, lid and bottom pieces with Best Glue Ever. You would never believe how dirty the acetate got while I was handling it… I thought I had clean hands! So, I whipped out my trusty Best Cleaner Ever and a Q-Tip, and cleaned a couple small areas of extraneous glue (where it came from, I’ll never know). Then I pulled out my Perfect Cleaning Cloth and gently cleaned the rest of the acetate pieces, front and back. I moved to the inside and adhered the stems to the inner mason jar acetate with Best Glue Ever, and then adhered the acetate in place. I finished the card with a stamped get well greeting and some twine tied in a bow.
Here are a few shots of the card from different angles. So cool – I love it!
And one more peek… I’m so loving how this turned out! The sky is the limit with regard to occasions and color/patterns! This one is obviously a get well bouquet and I think the next one I make will be for my daughter for Mother’s Day! ;)
Okay, okay, before I end this post, I have to share a pic of my frequent light box visitor, Loki, who came just as I was taking the light box apart. Hubby named him very appropriately, as Loki means God of Mischief! And is he ever! ;)
