Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: red
I made a little gift, a little box for one of those jumbo or xxl scented tealights. Mine are from Ikea but I think the size is standard.
I used Simon Says Stamp (schoolhouse red) cardstock and for the patterned cardstock a piece of 12x12"paper from Jillibean Soup (heart healthy red bean soup-bay leaves) for the heart.
I also used the new Lawn Fawn XOXO die in red and white and instead of a cigar band or belly band I closed the box with some unbranded washitape.
At first I only diecut the xoxo in the same red, but it was all too matchy match, it almost disappeared, so I slightly offset a white one, to give it a kind of drop shadow.
few clear rhinestones from Hero Arts and foamtaep to raise the heart diecut off the box
To make the box you'll need a piece of paper that is 4"1/8 by 7"1/4
you score it on the long side at 7/8, 3"1/4, 4"1/8 and 6"3/8
on the short side you score it at 7/8 and 3"1/4
cut and glue as indicated on the photo (not precisely to scale as my grid is in centimeters)
