Today is my birthday, and I felt like celebrating with a birthday blog post. I have been using the new Gossamer papers for Valentines, but really, they work for all occasions. Okay, perhaps not a boy birthday, but can't you see this paper for a bridal shower, Mothers' Day, or any spring event? It is hard to tell from the first picture, but I made a little treat box featuring the Cupcake Bear (C984). Here is a side view of the finished project:
I am lucky enough to have a local stamp store and access to an Accucut machine to cut the box. If you don't have a box template or die cut machine, I found a link to a box template online. You can find it here.
To make the box, I stamped the bear onto white cardstock using black Memories ink and colored him with Prismacolor pencils. I then cut him out with a marvy blue circle punch and added some Raspberry cardstock behind the bear as an accent. Finally, I attached him to a box I cut from some 12" x 12" Flitter paper.
