Welcome box


Today's project combines a couple of challenges and shows the crafty project I should be working on this month... as I've been asked to decorate 70 of these boxes for my sister's wedding later this month.  I have mentioned before that mass production is not my strong suit, but I'm going to try to see if I can stick to one design (ha ha, not likely).


I've used the Play Date Cafe colors again and the Lawnscaping sketch.  My friend recently won the new chevron stamps from Lawn Fawn and I got to play with them, am thinking I need to add them to my stamp collection...   And for those of you wondering about the skier stamp (b/c I've used it here, here and here) my sister had a custom stamp made from the graphic used on her fiance's ski clothing company products, click here to see the t-shirt with the image.


Materials: Custom skier stamp, Lawn Fawn Chevron background, PTI Mat Stack 1 dies, Tim Holtz ornamental die,  American Crafts yellow card stock, PTI cream card stock, black card stock, Twinery stone twine, gray ribbon and embrodiery floss from stash, Impress gray ink pad, Tattered Angels black mist, Smooch Vanilla ice spritz, Silhouette cut stickers on adhesive cardstock

GREAT design! Love the boxes!! From my past experience, I would stick to one design as it will make the mass production easier :)

Bless your heart, you have 70 of these to make?? Wow. Mass production is not my thing either. Your sister is receiving such a personal gift from you!

I like the fonts you picked for the "welcome" sentiment, Erin. They are fun!
