Stampavie all BOXED up!

Hello - Sorry missed yesterday - but WOW I couldn't get online most of the day! Remember all of the drought.. the need for rain? Well Feast or Famine!!!! From Midnight until 8AM we got 10-12 inches of rain! yes.. 10-12 inches!!! WE were really floating... donkeys were wading thru water all day! And guess what .. more rain is predicted all week... sigh all or nothing!


Well how about a project? Today's project is the Stampavie Challenge! And this week the challenge is to make a box.. yep any type of box, anything you like, and then decorate it with a Stampavie image.
I chose to start with the Gillian Roberts Mice and Mistletoe image.. just love it.. really sweet. I colored with Copics - I then backed it with pretty red and white elastic ribbon.

For the box I used a simple box template from Splitcoast Stampers - it is a 3x3 box and you can find the wonderful instructions HERE

I used a red card stock for the base, white card stock for the lid with a top of Red candy cane pattern paper - I believe it is from Imagination?? I added a sheer dotted ribbon around the edge. For the sides I decorated with pieces from the same collections paper. Then added some "bling"...

I hope you like my little box - I think I will save it for someone special to put a "gift" into! Now you can visit the Stampavie DT Blog and see all the DT boxes! OH MY.. there are some really wonderful 3-d items there!

Me.. I am going to go and see about some muddy donkeys :0)
HUGS and Happy Monday!

Wow, that's an awful lot of rain in a short period! Sounds like maybe you'd better teach the babies how to swim! Hope they don't mind wet feet!
