This week’s Paper Pals Arts # 202 challenge features

Real Red, Bermuda Bay, and Crumb Cake- a great color combo!

I had just used the cute SU Kraft Boxes (# 124106) at class this week with red felt spiral cut flowers for a Mother’s Day gift box. I decided I wanted to use the box and 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon as my Crumb Cake color for this challenge. We used classic red and black for our mothers but my mind went to my daughter who is graduating in one week from today with her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. I wanted to make a fresh and trendy gift box for her so I decided to use Bermuda Bay,  Real Red, and the Polka Dotted Kaleidoscope DSP.  I also used a new stamp set called @So Social that will be in the upcoming catalog  available for order on June 2  It is soooooooo cute! It was given out as a Prize Patrol at the Catalog Premier last week. It has 21 different trendy hashtags and @ greetings.  The Word Window and Modern Label Punches worked well to highlight the on trend sentiments.  My daughter will be impressed with how hip it is!

Below is the gift box we made at class this week for Mother’s Day that inspired me to make another one for my daughter. We used the classic SU Modern Medley DSP. The SU Spiral Flower Bigz Die (# 129379) is AMAZING! It cuts out beautifully, and felt is so unbelievably easy to wind around making these beautiful roses in seconds! The Delicate Doily Sizzlet L Die (# 126999) is still available on the Retired List. We used SU Teeny Tiny Wishes and SU Label Love cut out with the Modern Label Punch on this one.

Two different looks using the same idea- something classic for an older lady and something trendy for the younger lady! Of course, it could go either way for either lady, too.

A little tip: to keep the burlap ribbon attached to the box without permanently adhering it, I used velcro dots so the box can be opened and even recycled again for another gift:)

    1. Oh, Vicki, thanks for your sweet comment but even more for the photography compliment- that is the hardest part of blogging for me! You made my day that you liked them:)

    1. Thank you, Linda. They were quite easy to make- my gals had fun with them at class. Watching the flowers come together is as exciting as watching embossing powder melt!

  1. I agree with Linda!! Love the felt flowers and both boxes are gorgeous!! Congrats to you and your daughter for her upcoming graduation- what an accomplishment and I am sure you are one proud mommy!! 🙂
