Bella's fantasy box revealed

This is also known as a stepper box & it was one of those projects that I bookmarked nearly 2 years to go & never did make one. So when I had to come up with ideas for classes for SENZ this was top of my wish list for a project with a bit of wow.

I think everyone that did the class would agree it is WOW. It was really nice as they were obviously showing people at the show their boxes after the class & then they came down to say how cool - which as you can imagine is very pleasing. It's really simple & I followed this amazingly great tutorial of Terri Digness


My only advice is we/I used textured card stock as it's much easier to fold the small origami boxes or "steps". As well as using sticky strip to hold the boxes to the walls - use it to hold down the last folds of the box too; works best adding to the side of the walls - thanks Bernie from Whangarei (I think) who came up with this tip at the class.

The pretties flower was hand dyed by putting your hand inside a plastic bag & then rubbing the bag on the ink pad. Turn the bag inside out & spray a few times with a water mist bottle, throw in the pretties flower & scrunch it all up until the colour is even.

I think that's the last post from me regarding SENZ projects though I have a few kits left over for this, so think you'll see a few different colour combos appearing.

Well it's just on a week to the launch of the Spring Mini catalogue so don't forget I have an open home Friday August 7th 7pm onwards - you'll get to play with the new stamps, pick up a mini, and have supper on me, plus an opportunity to win stuff & it's all FREE. So RSVP your spot today as my house isn't that big so numbers are limited!
