Retail Therapy ~ Paper Playtime Challenge #8

Good morning, my friends.  Well, the weekend is over and it is time to start another!!!  But the good news is that it is also a Monday where there is a new challenge at the Paper Playtime blog.  Our challenge for the next two weeks is "Use More Than 1 Fold".  Now this could be on a card, an embellishment for a scrapbooking layout or a mini album just to name a few ~ anything that incorporates more than just the traditional fold.  If you follow my blog, you know that I posted a card the other day (HERE) also with more than one fold.  And, yet again, I have tried something new ~ a box card.  This would be perfect to place a gift card to a store in for a birthday girl :) The original tutorial I watched to create this card may be found HERE and can I tell you I had some pretty wonky looking boxes to start with.  I found that the secret is to making the diagonal score lines correctly.  I also do not have the diagonal scoring adapter so check out THIS VIDEO to see how to do the folds.  And, voila:



Card Stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Authentique Summer 6" x 6" Pad
Copic Markers
Sentiments ~ CARDZ TV "Good Friends" (outside)
~ Michaels $1.50 bin (inside)
Inks ~ Studio G turquoise
~ Close to my Heart Chocolate
~ Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
Circle Punch ~ Marvy
Ribbon, flowers, bling ~ "Use it Up" Inventory

Thanks all for coming by today.  Enjoy your day.  Remember to join us at Paper Playtime and show us your great projects with more than one fold.  Maybe you will be able to learn a new one too.
