Do the Bloggy Hop....Hop Hop Hop

Welcome back! It's time for another Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs Blog Hop - and Kelleigh's giving away her new Pumpkin Template to one lucky winner - make sure you check out her blog for all the details! I am so excited this week that I created TWO projects for you. The first uses Kelleigh's brand new Jewelry Box Template - the box looks really fancy but is super easy - here are photos of it open and closed. I am going to be making lots and lots of these to hold little Christmas gifts this year.

When assembling, the important thing is that the inner box gets made first - and the very first thing to do with the inner box is to fold down the side tabs that end up running along the top, inside of the box. Then just fold the "wrapper" up and it fits together nicely and securely on the top - no closure needed! I used Golden Day by Elise Hansen (I ran it through my printer twice so that the inside of my box and wrapper is this pretty gold color) and some flowers from my stash to finish this box off:

My second project uses Kelleigh's Top Heavy Bag Template and the digi kit Cazbah by ViVa designs. Another super duper easy project that looks fantastic when done! My neighbor did something really nice for us and I'm going to give this to her with a gift card inside.

Here are the rest of your hop stops!
Tracy <-- You are here Julee

Enjoy the hop and good luck in the drawing!

The inside of your jewelry box look to boutique chic with the it's own golden color. Great tip to run it through twice. YOur neighbor will love your pretty thank you box!

Tracy - I love your jewelry box. Thanks for the tip on the assembly. I can't wait to give it a try. Running the paper through twice is a great tip too!

LuAnn said...

beautiful! I never thought to print my papers full sheet on both sides and then do Kelleigh's lines only file - is that what you did or did I misunderstand? either tip!!

What I did was print the purple patterned paper on one side, then I did the box shape and cutting/scoring lines in the gold and ran it through on the other side of my paper!
