Happy Friday! Today closes out my focus on the New Horizons Designer Series Paper. I hope you’ve enjoyed the card projects throughout the week. I was saving a special project for Friday and here it is!
This sweet little box measures 2″ X 2″ and stands 3″ tall. It’s the perfect size to fit an Easter Egg, or a special treat or two. Making the box portion of this project goes quickly, I spent a little bit more time die cutting, coloring, and assembling the pansy to decorate the top of the box. The ribbon is adhered to itself, and the flower adhered to the ribbon, so the ribbon acts like a belly band to keep the box closed.
Depending on how you decorate the box, this would be a suitable project for a woman, man, child or teen. I have fallen in love with making boxes out of card stock as they are practical! With all of the decorating options available, these boxes are also beautiful. I urge you to give box making a try…I promise you’ll be hooked and surprised at how quickly they come together.
For this box the New Horizons DSP adorns the side panels of the box base and box lid. The New Horizons DSP is two-sided. As you’ve seen from some of the card projects this week, one side of the paper depicts beautiful watercolor prints, while the reverse side of the paper is a little more abstract. I used the reverse side of one of the sheets of paper which features Pale Papaya and white in what I would call a “quiet” print. The Pale Papaya blends well with Calypso Coral.
