PCS Cross Box blog hop!!



If you find yourself here at my blog, you must have just visited Melanie Schulenberg's gorgeous blog, Pockets of Inspiration!

Check out this gorgeous little cross box -- you too can make it using the exclusive template available in this months' Paper Crafters Sampler!  This adorable project is so easy to put together and would be just perfect for Easter or Confirmation gifts.  All you need to do is subscribe to the February issue of the Paper Crafters Sampler!

For this box, I printed the template directly on an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock cut from the Springtime Vintage dsp.  I cut, scored and folded it, then adhered all the corners with mini glue-dots.  I sponged all the edges with Always Artichoke, the adhered two pieces of Old Olive 1/8" taffeta ribbon down the centers of the arms.  The ribbon is embellished with the seed pearls from the Pearl Jewels.  The leaves are cut out of Certainly Celery and Always Artichoke with the Little Leaves Sizzlit, then sponged with Always Artichoke.  The rose is made from Pretty in Pink cardstock using Melanie Schulenberg's fabulous paper roses tutorial.
