Here we are! Time to kick off Papertrey’s official November Countdown! What? You don’t know what our countdown is all about? For those of you who are new to this, here are a few details…
–Papertrey Ink releases a new stamp set (or in this particular case FOUR) every month at 12am on the 15th of the month.
-Beginning the 10th of the month I provide little sneak peeks of the upcoming release here, along with inside tips & tutorials that will help lead you to success when you use the stamps on your own.
-A new project (or projects, depending on how well my mojo is flowing) will be added to the countdown each night at midnight up until the release.
So are we ready to let the fun begin?!?!?
I thought I would start the countdown with a fun twist on a golden oldie. Many stampers are familiar with the 2-4-6-8 box. Here is an updated version that helps to showcase our newest releases. I am sure experienced paper-crafters out there may have already tried a concept like this, but I thought it would beneficial to share the details step-by-step for those who may be unfamiliar with it.
Using scissors, I snipped the score lines up until the 2-inch scoreline, removing the far corner completely. This creates four equal flaps for the bottom of the "box".I applied tacky tape in the appropriate areas for box assembly.
For the front of the box, I created a label that makes this box a perfect favor for a Bridal Shower. I love the addition of the rhinestone stickers. I think it is the perfect finishing touch for this type of theme.
I am going to leave you guessing (for now) as to how many stamp sets are used in the label. I would be curious to know YOUR guesses as to what types of sets are being released based on the clues I have provided in the photo. Be sure to leave your thoughts on this in the comments section! Tomorrow I will have a few more details to reveal!
P.S. A big THANK-YOU to Beth Silaika for creating my new watermark for me. She was wonderful to work with and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to have their own custom watermark designed!
