Merry & Bright 2- 5-7-10 box

I think the Merry & Bright is SO cute! I have a Stamp Camp tomorrow where everyone purchased this set and we will be doing 6 projects using it. Here is a 2-5-7-10 box with flap that they will be you see the Crystal Effects icicles? Aren't they neat...we learned how to do these at Convention this year. The icicles are easy to make...just make sure you make them thick enough that you can get them off the wax paper without tearing them.

I also did a Make & Take at a meeting recently where I used all the small metal tags out of the packages...leaving me a bunch of the larger metal tags. I was VERY happy to see that the scallop circle punch fits in the large metal ring perfectly...leaving just a hint of the white paper behind the scallop. To further accentuate the white, I punched holes in each of the scallops.

On the flap, I used a little of the Wintergreen snowflakes designer is so pretty. I also liked the Bashful Blue and Sage Shadow color combination.

Set: Merry & Bright
C/S: Sage Shadow, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Wintergreen DSP
Inks: Basic Black, Sage Shadow
Other: 1-1/4, 1-3/8 and Scallop Circle punches, Double circle punch, Bashful Blue grosgrain ribbon, Large Metal Tag, Paper piercer and mat, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds, Dimensionals

That is the first thing I have seen done with those icicles that actually makes me want to make them! Love it. You inspired me, thanks.

The "icicles" are incredibly clever. This is adorable.

As soon as I saw this I knew I had to CASE it! I changed up the colors a bit and didn't use the medal edged tag. The girls at my stamp camp LOVED it!
Thanks for the great idea!

I've been making these little icicles and encouraging my stampers to make them so far I've just been collecting the little guys...I'm to attach them to little boxes. Thanks for sharing.
