Blogger's Challenge #5







Okay, I know it's not Friday. But, I'm leaving forDenver at 4:40 pm which means leaving for the airport much earlier than that. And, I have tee ball this morning. So, let's pretend it's Friday!

Our challenge was to make a gift box or bag. This was really fun cause someone I know is getting this box later today...if my luggage makes it to Denver, that is! I had to pack it with my checked luggage. I ran out of room in my carry-on.

I used 5 chipboard coasters (like you would find in a bar...I bought mine online, silly!) I then covered them with adhesive (I used Perfect paper adhesive with a sponge brush...any liquid glue would give you the smooth coverage you would need.) and designer paper. I allowed them to dry and with my brand new Crop-o-dile (now available through Stampin' Up...contact me if you want one!) punched holes for the ribbons. Oooooh, does that Crop-o-dile punch smoothly. It's so slick...it's also VERY quiet setting eyelets...It's a fantastic tool!
This uses the Cerise Designer Series paper, grosgrain ribbon in real red and vanilla.
Well, that's it! I'll be at the Stampin' Up convention until Sunday..if I get a chance to post from convention, I may...if the lines aren't too long and I'm not completely overwhelmed.
