Blogger's Challenge - Triangle box


This week's challenge was to create a triangle box. There are several different variations we saw when we started looking for patterns. Mine is a simple 4 x 8 square, scored in half and scored from the center of each short side to the side of the center crease...making a diamond. When you fold up the scores, the flaps are tucked over each other. I punched two holes in the top flaps and the ribbon keeps it closed.

I chose the Embrace Life stamp set and Ginger Blossoms DSP and Groovy Guava...I hadn't used either of them in a while. I stamped the long stem image randomly on my box with Groovy Guava. Then I adhere the triangle piece of DSP to the front. Stamped the large flower in black and used my sponge dauber to ink the center. I added a coordinating stripe of reverse red stripe DSP by the flower and a Rhinestone brad.

This is a fun little treat box! I'm glad we had this challenge so I pulled out my notes on how to make them!

Enjoy your Friday! Weekend here we come!
