In the last quarter Stampin Up! had a recruit special going on. If we got a recruit then we got this Christmas Memory Box kit. Well, I got some recruits and I finally got my box put together. I followed the instructions but I could have made it any way that I wanted to. So here's the box. It's about 7 1/2 X 5 X 2". And I think that it turned out pretty good. Now I wish I had a couple more to do for Christmas presents. I'll have to look for some boxes somewhere.
Look at everything that was included with the kit. There's a big pearl adornment, buttons, vintage tag, a jar of glitter, the ribbon, card stock, DSP, a whole sheet of pearls and, of course, the stamp set.
Here's a close up of the top. There' three, ah, what-cha-ma-callit's. I can't think of the right word. The one on the left is just lace ribbon with a thread run through it and pulled up tight. The middle one is three scallop circles, adhered together and then crumpled up. The one on the right is just a strip of material that is adhered to the middle of a circle of card stock, then twist and adhere to the circle. Then attached the circle to a scallop of the material. ROSETTES!! That's the word that I was trying to think of. See the green circle in the middle? That's called a lolly and it's super simple to make the with Simply Scoring tool. When I finished my box the instructions said to spray with adhesive and then add glitter but I decided to just use some Smooch ink in a spray bottle with some rubbing alcohol.
Then I spent about an hour fiddling with the software program for my new camera. Still don't have it figured out but it's getting easier. Then I spent about half an hour on the phone trying to get my sister's new cell phone activated. Still not sure that it's working right.
