Stampin' Celebration #46

I can't believe how quickly the weeks are going by!  Another fun inspiration piece over at Stampin' Celebration this week. 

Although I don't tend to use bright colors a lot, I really like the bright, happy feel of this inspiration piece.  I actually tried to incorporate all 3 colors, but in the end I decided to stay monochromatic (Daffodil Delight).  My main inspiration came from one of the boxes found in the bottom left photo--I liked the scallop edges on the box.  

I started by using my Scallop Square clear die to run Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot.  Then I scored each side between the first and second scallop, trimmed, and folded the box top together.  For the base of the box, I started with a 6" by 6" square and scored each side at 1 3/8".  Again I trimmed and folded together.  Although before adhering the base together, I stamped the flower from the set Simply Said using Versamark ink. 

I also stamped the Daffodil Delight square on top of the box.  To make the ribbon embellishment (inspired from the top right photo) I used approximately 18" of Daffodil Delight Striped Gosgrain Ribbon.  I took a needle and did a running stitch along one side.  Then I gathered the ribbon and tied it into a circle.  

The button is one of the Sweet Stitches Big Designer Buttons found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I used some Hemp Twine in the middle of the button and to attach the tag.  I stamped the tag using the set Tiny Tags and punched out with the Medium Jewelry Tag punch

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see what the Design Team has come up with this week.  You can also see who the Party Guest designer is this week!  Then I hope you are inspired to play along.  :-)
