Bloggers Challenge 42 Triangle Box and a tip...

This weeks Bloggers Challenge was to create a Triangle Box. There are many different patterns out there for Triangle Boxes - here's the one I used. With this pattern you can make the Triangle Box as big or as small as you'd like.

Details:

Stamps - Flourishes Wedding Essentials

Ribbon - May Arts









Here's the dimensions on mine:

Cut card stock to 10 1/2" x 3 1/2" (stamp or use embossing folders before you continue)
Score in on the 10 1/2" side at 5 1/2"
Turn your card stock and mark the center (1 3/4") on your 3 1/2" sides
Using a scoring blade score from the center point to the base (5 1/2" mark)
Fold the sides in to form your box
Use a hole punch and punch through all layers at the point and tie with a ribbon
Here's another one - these are really quick and easy. For this one I used the Cuttlebug Smoosh Technique (TJNL). I used my lavender ink to dye my white taffeta ribbon. If you scroll down you'll see a close up of how I created my elongated word window.













To create the elongated word window I cut my card stock to the width of the opening on my punch, and stamped my sentiment. Then slipped it through the punch with one edge through the slot and the other sticking up like this and punch









Remove your paper and reinsert on the other side like this and punch
