faceted box 3999

As soon as I saw this box on Sam Donald’s blog (a fellow demo from the UK), I knew that I wanted to make it! Sam is a whiz at creating boxes.  This one is so unique with all of its faceted sides – I love it!

I wanted to make the box in Coastal Cabana (did you know that this gorgeous color is retiring soon??) but you need to start with a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock and unfortunately I didn’t have it in that size.  So, I used Crumb Cake and decorated it using the stamp set Flowering Flourishes and Coastal Cabana ink.  For the top of the box I used a Sale-a-bration freebie, Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack, a pack of beautiful 6 x 6 vellum.  I punched two butterflies with the Elegant Butterfly punch and colored one with my Stampin’ Write marker.  I used glue dots to adhere them together and finished them with rhinestones.

I shredded some Crumb Cake cardstock (I cut very fine slivers of the paper with my paper cutter) and  put it inside the box along with an EOS lip balm (which matches Coastal Cabana so perfectly)! I use lip balm a lot and love this brand!  I’m sure once I get my hands on some new flavors, there will be more projects using them!
