Grateful Vintage Leaves Sneaky Box
This box was inspired by Sam Donald of Pootles Papercrafts. She created the box design and has a video tutorial on the instructions. You can find it on YouTube by searching for sneaking box with flush fitting lid. I loved it and decided to make a fall leaf version. I stamped the top of the Box with the Vintage Leaves stamp set. I love this set and it has matching Framelits! You can purchase them separately or in a money saving bundle. Who wouldn't want to save money, right? I used the baby wipe technique to make the variegated colors on the leaves. The cardstock for the top is Tip top taupe, a 2015-17 In color. This has quickly become one of my most used neutral color. The base of the box is made in Cajun craze. I stamped the leaves for the focal image then cut them out with the matching Framelits. I then sprayed them with alcohol and crumpled them to give them texture. I tied the three leaves with linen thread. The sentiment comes from endless thanks, as well as the banner. I hand cut the banner out. I hope you will try making one. Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to stop by!
