WCC14 --- Greetings to you

Watercooler Challenges



Welcome to the Watercooler Challenge.  This is the last one for this year and the challenge is to create a box, banner, bag or tag.  I wound up making both a box and a tag.  It's just the way it turned out.

If you've followed my blog, you'll have seen a variation of this box before.  I initially created it to fill up with those cinnamon hearts that come out for Valentine's Day.  My husband loves those and I was working on some Blog Hop projects.  And so the little box was created.  It's a variation of my first box which I created using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.  This box actually closed---which works out well if you're filling it with loose cinnamon hearts I can assure you.  Today's box is just a little bit taller than that first closing box because I'm filling it with Christmas chocolates and they take up more room.

You can find the template and full instructions for the closing box here.  The changes in measurements are as follows:  begin with a piece of cardstock measuring 6 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Along the long side score as shown (2", 4", 6", 8").  Along the short side score at 1 1/2" and 4".  Everything else is the same except that you trim the top tabs that don't have the scalloped edges to 1 1/2".

This is the box top, open and closed:


This is the box closed and decorated up but without a tag:

I hope you'll check out the rest of the projects for this Watercooler Challenge.  If you'd like to play along this time, just upload your post with our Linky.

    1. Hi Gail, thanks so much. Yes I did use the brushed silver cardstock for the box. The tag, however, uses the Dazzling Disamonds Glimmer paper.

    1. Thanks so much, Jean. I love all the stars they've given us this year, both the larger framelits and the wonderful confetti stars punch. Of course I had to use them. :)
