Squigglefly & Paper Temptress

There is a challenge over at Squigglefly right now. You can check it out here. This is my challenge entry. This is the first box I've ever made from scratch. Ever. It was a challenge for me and there is room for lots of improvement but for a first time I like it. I used Paper Temptress Watermelon/Kiwi Sorbet Double Sided Cardstock. The weight of this paper is perfect for making boxes and the colors are super vibrant. Baby Cheetah is from Squigglefly. I made gift certificates to fit inside the box and the postcard selection in Publisher was perfect for this. I printed them on Heavenly White Premium Ultrasmooth Cardstock from Paper Temptress, which is amazing paper. So smooth and absolutely zero smears and runs from my printer. The weight is good too, nice and sturdy for professional ;-) looking gift certificates and I simply added a dotted border and inserted my cute little baby cheetah. Font is SU Girly Girl.

Good job! I don't think I've EVER made a box. Scares the snot out of me. Oh wait, I did make a "round top box" for easter which was cut & fold so it was easy. Not as talented as you are. Love that coupon too! Sounds like something I can use - LOL!

Hugs,

Such a cute idea Debby. I think you might become hooked on making boxes if they all turn out so great!

This is just so much fun. I love it. Hey, I wanted to let you know that even though you are USPS, your card will actually be late!! I had it in the wrong pile. Yours got put in with my May birthdays. I don't know how or why, but it is on its way to you. Hope you like it. Hugs, Leslie
