To Autumn With Gratitude Curvy Box

Happy Autumn! :o)

This is my second post today. If you missed first one just scroll down or follow this link

Autumn officially started now (10:20 AM) here in Cavtat. Hot summer days are behind us and our mother Nature is going to treat us with all kind of goodies and gorgeous colors.

As a welcome to Autumn, I made a To Autumn With Gratitude Curvy Box, using my newest Jane's Doodles 'Autumn Blessings' stamp set I received from Jane this week. Thank you Jane! :o)

Idea for the shape of this box came when I saw Dutch Doobadoo Dutch Box Art A4 Pumpkin. This product is not available in Croatia and I already spent "allowed" amount of money on craft tools and supplies this month, so I made my own template for this type of box.

I drawn template on a piece of grid paper in several dimensions and cut them out. Drawing these templates was a good practice of technical drawing, which I haven't done since I was a teacher of Technical culture in elementary school. :o)

After I made templates, I traced the largest on a piece of brown cardstock paper and smaller on Kraft paper (this is recycled item; Jane wrapped stamps in it) and cut them out.

Then I randomly stamped leaves and acorns from Jane's Doodles 'Autumn Blessings' stamp set on the Kraft paper. I used Docraft Brown Dye Ink Pad and Tim Holtz's Distress Inks (Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain).

I glued stamped Kraft paper shape on brown cardstock shape, cut slots and punched holes and closed the box.

I made small tag from same papers I used for the box, stamped sentiment from Jane's Doodles 'Autumn Blessings' stamp set with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Vintage Photo and punched hole on it. I tied two brown ribbons and tag together with brown string, and tied all together through punched hole on the box.
