July's InStyle Stamps Blog Hop!!

It is the last Friday of the month and that is time for the InStyle Stamps Blog Hop! And this month there are some really fun images to show off! A Fantasy Theme!!!

I was assigned a wonderful "Magical Unicorn"! I think I was given the unicorn.. cuz of my love of donkeys... they are close friends you know.. LOL

When I saw the unicorn I knew I wanted to do something different, something cute... little girl fun - well that brought me back around to the wonderful little gift box from Lauren Meaders and Papertrey Ink's template - perfect size for this "Magical Unicorn"! (these templates are sold for $5.00 each.. just and FYI)

Ok - so with a white unicorn there isn't a lot of coloring... but what I did do was with my Copics. I then cut him out so he would show and pop off the front of the little box. I also added three tiny Prima flowers with leaves and stickles centers.. a unicorn likes to play in pink flowers right?

The paper I used for the box is two sided - perfect as it is made to match! And I thought the castles and carriages were perfect for the unicorn. I inked all of the edges of the paper with a light green ink. And used the edge of one of my border punches to make a scalloped looking handle... ain't to sure how that turned out as it wasn't as scalloped as I would like, but oh well....


Here you can see the side of the box, and how the sides close it all together, I punched two Stampin Up Slits in the handle and ran a wide satin ribbon through to give it a bit more fun.
