Stamped boxes

Close-up of the flower

Just one more snippet before I'm done.

Oh, before I forget, my husband just asked me if I was 'blotting' then quickly he said 'blogging'? Now that's the funniest thing I've heard all day. I guess if I was stamping... I could be blotting. Made me chuckle.

This is a cute little box from the large stash I received from Sunday International to play with. I just wanted to show you something that was so simple and fun to do using stamps.

My Little Purse Box Instructions

STAMPS: Flower, Second Nature from Autumn Leaves; Flourishes, from Autumn Leaves
PAPER: White cardstock, Georgia Pacific (for the flower images)
INKS: Tempting Turquoise, SU!, Twinkling H2O’s, Kaleidacolor rainbow dye inkpad-Caribbean Sea, Black ink, Staz-On.
ACCESSORIES: Sheer organza rainbow ribbon, Hobby Lobby, pop-dots, anywhere hole punch

Rub Tempting Turquoise stamp pad directly onto the flat box, covering all areas, then rubbing with a tissue to blend
Stamp Flourishes (1 stamp image only) in Caribbean Sea rainbow randomly over the background, turning stamp for variety
Stamp flower 2 times on white card stock, color with H2O’s in your choice of color, cut both images out, take one image and using your thumb nail rub the petals of the flower to make them curl up and be rounded, attach curled flower on top of the other with pop-dots, attach to front of box with pop-dots
Punch hole in each side near top edge, attach ribbon by tying knots to the inside of box
Ink the edges of the box with the rainbow ink pad
