This is my first challenge that I did from Splitcoast Stampers. It is the Origami box. I used Paper Adventures paper and cardboard. The instructions for the box part are in pictures so it is easy to get confused as to whether you should open the paper back up when you go to the next step. If you try it use junk paper first until you understand it. I wasted two good sheets of paper :-( The sentiment was done on the computer. The bee stamp is from SUs In Full Bloom and the flight trail is from PTI Little Lady set. I used my heart Nestabilities to cut and emboss. I used my SU markers and Copic Spica clear pen to color the bee. I will be making more of these for Daniel's (ds) Bible teachers. They look like they took a lot of time but are really easy. I am filling mine with Kisses!

If you are like me you may have a hard time stamping perfect sentiments. It seems like they are the hardest thing to stamp with a solid clean print. Plus it is hard to find just the right sentiment in the right font. So I started using my computer for verses and sentiments. You can use any color and make as many as you want! For this set I used an olive type to match the Amy Butler paper. The hardest thing about computer sentiments is getting the right color since the monitor does not always match the outcome. The bracket label is cut from my new nestabilities labels set. The stamp is from Inkadinkado Bold Baroque set. Have a great New Year!
