Anyway, here is the story:
I added Pretty in Pink,
and the Designer Series Paper is Tea Party.
I first saw the idea for the scallop circle cones in a wreath that a friend made.
First I scored the fold lines.
With the short side at the top,
I scored at 1" and 5."
Then I turned it so the long side was at the top,
and scored at 1" 5" 6" and 10."
I used a bone folder to get good clean folds on all the score lines.
Next I cut the score lines along the long sides
as you can see in the above photo.
Lil T seems to have gotten shy.
Maybe he doesn't know what to do with a whole 30 minutes for this project.
Next I ran some Pretty in Pink through the Big Shot
with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.
The piece for the top measures 3 1/4" square
and the side pieces are 3/4" x 3 3/4."
I also cut some Pretty in Pink
with the Scallop Circle #2 die
to use as a base for the top decoration.
After adhering the Pretty in Pink pieces to the top and sides
As usual with a 3-D project
it is easier to decorate most of it while it is still flat.
Guess how I know this. 😀
OK, Lil T, give me a sign here. How am I doing?
12 minutes, and I have the box together already.
Now for the decoration.
If you don't make it too complicated, Sage,
you could actually get this done on time.
Ah, Lil T.
You know I have to add all those little touches
that make me smile.
First I used the Scallop Circle Punch
on some of the Designer Series Paper.
Then I used the bone folder to help me curl them
in to little cones and fastened them into shape with a glue dot.
I found that cones with a wide opening worked better than ones with a narrow opening.
Next I adhered the cones
to the Pretty in Pink scallop circle.
Lil T is starting to jump around a little.
(It's been 20 minutes already.
Are you done yet? Your doohickey looks great.
Just put it on the top of the box and you'll make your time.)
No, T. Not yet.
This is still too plain.
(Groan, says T. You always say that.)
How about some curlies? Some bling? Some butterflies?
I cut some butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit,
then brushed them and the cones with the 2-Way Glue Pen,
and sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds.
Then I took some 1/4" strips of Tea Party Paper
and curled them with the bone folder–
just like curling ribbon at Christmas time.
I attached the curly strips with a glue dot on one end
to the center of the circle,
and attached the butterflies to the curlies with glue dots as well.
Look at that, T.
We made it!
I never thought you would do it, Sage.
You made it fancy AND got it done in time.
See my happy dance?
Happy happy Lil T. Woo Hoo.
Thanks Lil T. I couldn't have done it without you.
