Stampotique Designer's Challenge#7 - Use a Template



The current challenge over at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge is to use a template and just to show all you guys out there that not ALL Stampotique stamps are creepy I used Jokerhat by Kelle McCarter. Isn't she FUN!? For the template I went back to my dear friend Audrey's Blog to get the measurements for the Origami box she did a few weeks ago. I'll tell you, when you want to find some great and clever gift or packaging ideas, Audrey's your gal. This cute little box only requires one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. I used double sided so it's as cute inside as out. Click HERE for Audrey's tutorial.

Jokerhat was cut with a Nesties Circle and layered on Nestie Inverted Scalloped Circles. Her hat was paper pieced and cut out and I used a Prima flower and adhesive beads to embellish it.

Isn't it cool how the box opens? The outside edges are rimmed with a wavey punch from EK Success. The ric rac is an EK Success punch as well. I realy enjoyed this challenge and I think this adorable box would be cute for party favors or to hide a small gift.

Great box! I can't believe it's just one 8 1/2 by 11 sheet! Love that border punch too. It's one of my favourites. Everything ties together so perfectly on this project - but you seem to have a knack for that!!

C'est vraiment très réussi, j'aime beaucoup.

Oh, I love this box design! Haven't seen it yet and looks easy enough for my simple brain. What a fun stamp, Donna! I don't recall seeing that one. She is quite amusing perched on top and makes you wonder what high jinx are hiding inside. What????? It's EMPTY? Well, that's no fun!

Carol Q said...
