I am so excited this week to be a Guest Designer on the new Colour INKspiration challenge site and joining the wonderful Colour INKspiration Crew for their 4th blog hop as they reveal all the creations to inspire you for this fortnights challenge colours.
Joining in on the challenges is super easy all you have to do is click here to join us and then share your wonderful creations using the fun colour palette each fortnight.
Now you may have come here from the lovely Paula Dobson’s blog and already be part way through the hop so I am really hoping I have done justice to this week’s amazing set of inspiring colours …
After having a little play around I finally decided to play to my strengths this week and go for a 3D item and one that I have actually been busting to make ever since I first saw the Window Box Thinlits Dies from Stampin’ Up! in the new 2017 Occasions Catalogue.
I am sure you have seen the amazing projects that people have been coming up with using these Dies and most of them are ideas that I also immediately thought of – double height and width box versions, cutting the box horizontally etc. but the one other thing I also wondered was whether they would make a quick easy way to create the old tower boxes we used to make by hand – you know when we used to make individual origami square boxes and then placing them in a wrap with a lid on top?
Well as it turns out, yes they do! The Window Gift Box die makes it super fast and easy to create the boxes for your stack and the measurements for the wrap are also amazingly simple.
For this version of the box I decided not to include a lid as my treats just looked so much better peeking out the top of the stack but adding a lid is a cinch and I will have another post later this week with an example of that version.
I also decided to make a video on the basic construction of the tower boxes in case anyone wants to try these for yourself – it is a little long (much longer than any other video I have made) as I decided to include a few extra tips for the Window Box Thinlits as I went along …
Now you must pop over to Bronwyn Eastley’s amazing blog to check out her amazing creation for this fortnight’s colour combo ….
