Something Different Saturday...
Now I haven't forgotten that there is one more Gemini die to showcase and I have used that one for my something simple card for tomorrow. However today is the first time I can show how I played with the new Floral Striplet from Sue's new range. As per usual I have made a box, today is a candle box and a small bonus of a glass tea light holder to handy on a tree. (as suggested by Mr Next Door)
This is a very simple project I simply scored a piece of A4 card stock at 5.5cm intervals which gives 5 panels and a small strip to adhere the sides together. I then cut the centre panel from the striplet into each panel inking through the die with Worn Lipstick distress Ink.
Once cut I scored the piece at the bottom and top at 2cm which created flaps to add a hand cut hexagon on the bottom as the base, I also add a smaller hexagon inside the box to stabilise the base.
The second box shown here is made in the same manner however I didn't ink this one and I added strips of velum inside the box so that the light (I used a battery powered tea light).. To decorate this box I cut some of the Camilla flowers full petals in Blush Foundation card and the same sizes in the Camilla open petals in the same Milk card. I finished these using Cosmic Shimmer Pearl PVA glue dots.
The small hanging light is even simpler. I cut the striplet using the inside and the border to make a strip. I inked through this and simply, using spray glue, added this around a small glass jar. I tried a thing pink ribbon, from my stash, as a handle then wrapped ribbon around the top finished with a simple hand tied (unusual for me I know) bow.
