Oh So Sweet Ombre

It’s sneak peek time! First up I wanted to showcase one of the gorgeous papers available in the Sale-a-Bration brochure and one of several options when you place a qualifying order over £45 / 60 €. Technically, this project contains two items available in the brochure, but the main focus of today is on the gorgeous ‘Oh So Ombre’ Designer Series Paper.

The paper pack has 4 different colours in it; Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green and Rococo Rose (see video for a peek at these!) and has 2 designs in each colour – which are absolutely gorgeous. All four are amongst my faves from the Stampin’ Up! colour families.

My project today is inspired by a treat box that Pootles first made approximately 5 years ago using the envelope punch board. Unfortunately, the punch board is now retired and so I wanted to find a way in which I could still make a treat box that looked the same, but only used a score board.

After a bit of playing with different techniques and measurements, I hit the jackpot and found the perfect technique for making boxes like this – please watch the video and you will see how easy the scoring is!

And look at the finished result, sweet and simple – just how we like our projects!

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
