So today we have a new challenge for you over at the Creative Belli Challenge. This time around our challenge is STRING. I gotta say...my creativity has apparently taken a trip to Mexico or something. I sat down to create something for this challenge, and my mind went blank. I just hate when you have uninterrupted craft time, and you got nothing but an empty mind...lol. Anyway, here is what I ended up making. A very simple project, but I thought it turned out ok.
I started with a triangle box template and a piece of PP from CTMH. I cut, scored, and folded. I added some eyelets to put the "string"/twine through. Then I used the Oak Leaf stamp from Biblical Impressions. I inked the image up with brown ink, and then used a pumpkin orange along the edges of the image. When I stamped it off, it had a "mixed" color. I love the way that turned out. I did 2 of the leaves this way, and then reversed the inking order and did 2 that way. Here is a close up of the leaf. You can see the tips of the leaf are orange. After I stamped the off, I fussy cut them out, and layered one on each side of the box. I glued closed 3 of the sides, and left one open so I can fill it. After doing this, I thought these boxes would make cute little Halloween school treats (with a "spoooooky" image of course). I may even do these for Christmas. The last step we to tie it up with the string!
Well that is all now. Head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge and see what the other DT gals have come up with using string. Then play along with us, and link your creation to the Belli 126 post!
