This colorful Fancy Favor Box is my last hurrah for Sale-a-bration. Truth be told, I'm not that "happy" that it's coming to an end, but I am happy that Stampin' Up! offered yet another terrific Sale-a-bration promotion with such cool free products.
To dress up the box, I wanted to mimic the pattern of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper. I had a really clever idea how to do it ... that failed miserably! So I tried again. And again. And I finally got those diamond patterns just about right. I was determined to figure it out or go down trying. Ha!
For inquiring minds, those diamond shapes are about 3/4" x 1-3/4"; cut as strips and then trimmed into shape from one center point to the next center point. They are attached with glue dots to a window sheet circle - which not only provided a clear background to hold the design together, but made lining them up very easy over a sheet of Grid Paper.
The smallest stamp from the Madison Avenue stamp set is the perfect size for the center of the Designer Builder Brads. Aside from getting to create your own brad center, these brads are very low profile even with the epoxy bubble on top. So, you won't have any worries about including them on cards you plan to mail. Yay!
If you'd still like to get in on the Sale-a-bration freebies, you've got until 11:50 PM tonight (Mountain Standard Time) to do so. Simply place an order for regular Stampin' Up! products and choose one free Sale-a-bration item for every $50 you spend. See the free items here.
p.s. Be sure to come back tomorrow - I just might have a little sneak peek news for you and it's going to be awesome!
