Sweet Box!

I have been working on this months host club projects but they aren't ready yet. I realized I still had an old host project I never shared. This box is a criss cross box from Nicole Heady's blog, you can find it here. We used sahara sand card stock and wheeled the watercolor vine wheel with always artichoke ink. We used a stamp from Embrace Life for the main image. Again it is stamped onto sahara sand. We used a blender pen with regal rose craft ink to color in the flowers. Craft ink gives you better coverage on darker card stock and I like how it appears to be "painted". This is a good use of your old or spent blender pens! We added some white gel pen centers and mounted to a artichoke scallop circle. The ribbon is rose wide grosgrain. Inside is a small cello bag filled with chocolates, closed with a regal rose round tab punch.
This box is really fun to make, try one today!
