The January Prima Product Pick & Color palette is up, and within minutes of seeing this palette I whipped up this little box. Literally. Or well, maybe not, but I did start on this the same evening as the palette was revealed to us (funny sidenote; just read this article on memories which questions whether our memories really are our own/correct…. intriguing piece..esp the hot balloon-experiment).
Nevertheless. This palette:
..was the one that inspired me immensely.
I used prima-products from CHA-S for this one, ie – none of the new stuff. So, sorry if you wanted a peek or two of the new stuff! I must say – I *love* these leaves – they come in both metallic-colors (Aglow) & in felt (Vermont). Sigh. Wish I had more of these!
If you want to make your own box feel free to check out the tutorial here. You need two such boxes (or well, halves) – made from squares measuring approx 8 1/4 x 8 1/4 and 8 3/4 x 8 3/4 inches (ie, 1/2 inch diff in size…approx). Don’t forget the circle-punch to create such half-thingies you see pictured above; it’ll make it easier to take these boxes on/off.
I like making such boxes. Personally I think bulky flowers are difficult to work with when it comes to traditional layouts – but for such projects they’re such a perfect match!
