Octagon Box

This is another of the projects I displayed to showcase Stampin' Up's new Fabrics at the High Wycombe Training day a couple of months ago.

I have used the Mini Milk Carton Die to create the base of the box - cutting two and joining them together to create an Octagon.

The colour combination used is Real Red, Baja Breeze and Whisper White. The top of the card and the lid of the box were both heat embossed with White embossing powder using the little background stamp from the Clearly For You stamp set (page 66).

The ribbon used is the fabulous Real Red 1/8" Taffeta, which gives a lovely finish to the edge of the lid. I used the Tiny Tags stamp set (page 66) to create the little tags on the lid - again these were embossed with White Embossing powder.

The fabric is Candy Cane Christmas (page 105 £8.95) and I used it this time to create the little Pom Pom flowers. The technique was one of the ones I demonstrated at the training. They are great if you hate to sew - as you only need glue dots and sticky strip to create them :o)
