Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop : 3D

No automatic alt text available.

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop - we hop every month so be sure to pop back and visit us again!  Today our theme is 3D projects - something I find quite challenging!

You are currently at my page - Stephanie Fischer, The Crafty Thinker.  At the end of my post there is a full line up of team members, please click on the name after mine in the list to continue the hop.

3D is not my natural habitat so I sought help and found it in Kirsteen Gill's blog.  She has very generously provided a tutorial for elongating the Window Box which is currently the most underused item in my craft room.

An 8 1/4" tall box that I think is gender neutral
Following her instructions, I used one 12" sheet of Basic Black cardstock and 8" x 1.75" strips of Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.

A little flower, tassel and Glitter Enamel Dot decorate the front of the box and assist with lifting the lid
I made a little tag by elongating the smallest of the Lots of Labels dies and scored it in the middle.  Half is adhered to the top of the box and the other half supports a tassel and a little gold flower.

The gold flower on the top is paper-pieced - Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet makes the process quite straight forward
The decoration for the top of the box is cut in Whisper White and I've added a layer of Rich Razzleberry underneath it.  Using a little scrap of leftover Gold Foil Sheet (with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet attached) I paper-pieced the flower in the centre of the top.

Although there are flowers all over this box, I think that the colour scheme keeps the project gender neutral.

I hope you've enjoyed this project and I welcome your comments.
