Why is it that boxes are so intriguing to stampers? Whenever I see one, my mind always begins to wonder . . . how hard is it to make, what would I use it for, how should I decorate it, etc. This box is quite an odd size, mainly because I (unknowingly at the time) didn't exactly follow the instructions, but a box is still a box, right? What made this box a ton of fun is that I used Rub-Ons to decorate it. The floral vine along the bottom and the "happy day" on the lid are rub-ons from one of the Sale-A-Bration products that will be available Feb. 1 - March 17 from Stampin' Up! There are four sheets of rub-ons in the pack, they all have the same images, but each sheet is a different color . . . black, white, Chocolate Chip, and Old Olive. With any $50+ order during the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) period, you can choose one of the SAB products. Other SU products used to make this box include the Scallop punch, Horizontal Slot punch, Circle punches, Soft Sky Double-Stitched Grosgrain ribbon, "Big Pieces" and "Little Pieces" stamp sets, Vintage eyelets, and 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon (to cover up a little scoring boo-boo). Even with it's minor imperfections, this box is still a box.
