Week 7 Challenge - EPB Project No. 1

Hello, Crafters.

I had a brilliant time yesterday, playing with my Envelope Punch Board.

I found the instructions for the pink box on YouTube made by Sam Donald.

She used some very pretty Designer Series Paper but I decided to use cardstock.

For the pink box, I stamped the outside using Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set and Pretty in Pink ink and cardstock (both retired).

Unfortunately, I don't have a re-inker and my inkpad is quite dry, which has resulted in the flowers not being very visible.

I stamped the reverse side of the cardstock using Elegant Eggplant Ink and the spotty stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.

I wasn't happy that you can see inside the box although, it's not a problem if you wrap the gift you're putting inside with co-ordinating tissue paper. 

I really liked the way the flaps crossed over the front of the box, so decided to have another go.

This time I used Mint Macaroon, stamped with Garden Green Ink.

Unfortunately, I put the adhesive on the wrong side - doh! - so the flaps had to go inside - happy mistake!

I love the look of this box.

I decorated it with the Flower Shop, Petite Petals, Papillon Potpourri and Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Sets.

I finished off using the gorgeous lace trim in Mint Macaroon.

As I said earlier, I liked how Sam had made her box with DSP, so for my third box, I covered my cardstock with the flowery design paper that comes with the Designer Series Paper Stack 2015 - 2017 In Colours - the colour I used is Watermelon Wonder. 

I left it a little while to let the Tombow glue dry.

This time I used Watercolour Wings, Pictogram Punches and Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Sets to decorate the outside.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
