My friend Kathy and I have set a goal of completing at least one Splitcoast Challenge per week. She beat me to it this week, but here's mine.
I combined both the Try Something New challenge of making a 2, 5, 7, 10 box as well as the Color Challenge - to use River Rock, Really Rust and Chocolate Chip for today's post.
I've been wanting to make a little box like this for a while, but had a lot of other things on my plate. When it came around for the challenge this week, I just knew I'd have to play.
I switched mine up just a little bit. I know that lots of people have a hard time tying the bows just right and get frustrated. So, I simplified the closure by just making the top tuck in under the scalloped circle. If you make one, just make sure to put your adhesive only on the bottom half of the circle and it will tuck right in there.
These are SO fun, and SO easy. You've got to give it a try. I'm going to email my attendees for my upcoming fall flowers class and see if we can switch the notebook we were going to make for this box because I think they'll enjoy it! Be sure to check out the Splitcoast Gallery on this one because many players have changed their little folded flap into an open topped box with a handle. Cuteness!
