Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.  The prize this month is an awesome digi pack containing several images and a paper pack too - how cool is that.

Challenge #231

Theme 'Anything Goes with Birthdays' 

For this fortnights creation I am working with the Iris digital stamp and paper pack by Coosty Creations available from the StitchyBear Digital Outlet.  The pack contains the image to colour and four papers.

I love giving these boxes with tea bags in to my friends and I think they like getting them too lol.  I designed the template for the box a wee while ago so my first job was to gut it out.
 I then embossed each of the sections with an Embossilicious A4 embossing folder.
Next, using one of the papers from the pack I cut four panels and glued them to four panels I had cut using the same mauve card as the box.  I then distressed the edges.
 The mounts were attached to the box and I added some ready pleated lace in the just the perfect colour around the top edge.
 Next I coloured the image with Promarkers.
 While thinking (which I occassionally do :) ) I thought it would be rather sweet to add some peel off corners to each of the bottom corners.
 Next I moved onto the toppers.  Using Spellbinders Ovals, Scalloped Oval, Circles and Scalloped Circles for the image and the sentiment.  The sentiment was stamped with a Just Rite stamp.  Before attaching the sections together I added some white lace around the edges of the image and sentiment parts, I then attached these to the rear sections which also used the paper from the pack.  Liquid pears were added around the edges of the toppers too.
And here we have the completed box (well almost complete - just needs some tea)
 Now it is complete :)
