OCC....Girl Power




Good Morning Peeps!! It is Saturday and that means it is time for another new challenge at Our Creative Corner.

This week our challenge hostess is Sharon Wheet from Designs by Sharon, and she has challenged us to Go Girly! Create a card, 3-D project, scrapbook page, etc. Let's show our feminine side, and make something girly! There are requirements: included a hand-made paper flower, ribbon, and some bling (rhinestones, glass glitter, etc.). Doll it up!

What a great challenge huh? I LOVE girly!!! I choose to make a pretty, feminine, vintage looking treat box.

I started with a piece of Designer Paper from the Springtime Vintage DSP, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Score at 1-1/4" on both log sides and 3-1/4" on both short sides. Cut and fold into a box. I added a 3/4" handle. I decorated my box with a hand made paper flower. I made my flower with rose red card stock and my scallop circle punch. The sentiment on here comes from the Hostess set, After Thoughts. I added around the top of the box some trim I had in my stash.

I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations! To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project over at Our Creative Corner so we can check it out. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.


Well, that is all from me for now, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
Vicki
