Hi friends! Happy Hump Day! Our new challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog launched this morning and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #36 – Anything Goes + Fancy Fold! You know how I love fancy folds so this challenge was right up my alley and I was really looking forward to it! I created a napkin fold gift box using some gorgeous Dare 2B Artzy papers and stamps!
This is the second napkin fold gift box I’ve made. The first one is HERE (created last year) if you’d like to take a peek. Despite the complex look, it really is an easy gift box to make. And the sky is the limit with regard to cardstock, papers and occasion! I embellished the top of the box with some Dare 2B Artzy stamped and die cut feathers and YNS green glittered Gumdrops.
I used Stampin’ Up Soft Sky cardstock for the box base, and Dare 2B Artzy Botanical Breeze paper pack for the box layers and the napkin fold. It’s best to use double-sided papers because both sides are visible. Here’s a pic with the lid taken off, showing the napkin fold just barely beginning to open.
And here’s a pic of the napkin fold fully open, revealing an inspirational sentiment in the bottom of the box! The sentiment is from one of the two Dare 2B Artzy stamp sets, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The ‘gauze’ texture stamp under the sentiment is from Paper Wings Productions.
And here’s one more look… how stinkin’ cute is this?!
