JAI #184: Just Add Bows


Are you ready for another Just Add Ink Challenge?  I am!

This week Nikki has challenged us to Just Add Bows.  Not too difficult a challenge for most cardmakers!  The hardest part is choosing which ribbon to use.

This week I decided not to make a card, but to make a 3D project instead.

I've seen a lot of pictures of the Box In A Bag on the internet and have been meaning to try one for ages.  Now was the time! I added a little twist though, by making one in miniature.  I followed these instructions, but instead of using the larger sheet of DSP I used a sheet from my Winter Frost DSP Stack.  I had to adjust the base to fit the smaller paper.  I cut a 2 1/2 inch square and scored it at 1/2 on all sides.

I used a watercoloured stocking from Colour Me Christmas as a tag for my Box In A Bag - a cute little finishing touch.

Stamps: Colour Me Christmas
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Silver Glimmer Pen (retired)
DSP/Cardstock: Winter Frost DSP Stack, Watercolour Paper, Pool Party
Other: Scallop Trim Punch, Silver 1/8" Ribbon, Organza Ribbon, Blender Pen, Paper Snips, Sticky Strip

I hope you can play along with us this week at Just Add Ink.

Bye for now,
