Too Many Boxes!

Hello, again! Long time between posts even for me! Life rips along at it's usual pace and as usual I seem to have to peddle twice as fast as anyone else just to keep up, let alone get ahead of the game.

Today I have some cute little boxes to share with you. My Stampin' Up! upline, Mae, kindly shared a link she had found to a blog showing the directions for making these gorgeous boxes. You can find Shelly's blog by clicking here.

My gorgeous girlfriend had a sparkly party for her 5 year old coming up. Having only a son I rarely get the chance to play with girly stuff. So I offered to make these as party boxes for the guests. I re-sized Shelly's original template to fit in party goodies. They were a very big hit!

The little girl's boxes were made using the Perfect Princess stamp set (thanks Lynda for lending it to me!), colours from the Soft Subtles colour family and, of course, lots of glitter. The little boy's boxes were made using Stampin Up!'s East Coast Prep designer series paper and the co-ordinating cardstock colours Real Red, More Mustard and Wild Wasabi. For the three older children attending (2 big brothers and an older cousin) I used the Outlaw designer series paper, the Wanted stamp set and Sage Shadow, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla co-ordinating cardstock. Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by.

Glad you had as much fun as I did making these cute little boxes! Love your colour combinations and the idea for using them for both girls and boys!
