One sheet wonderful

On Saturday my husband and I went to the last day of the Paralympics athletics competition...which was a real WOW! It was totally amazing, inspiring and just plain wonderful!

The Wow factor has remained with us  and so when I saw a project idea listed with the heading WOW I was immediately  drawn to it.

As Stampin' Up! demos we like to share ideas and this is how some of the fabulous projects and variations on projects happen. This particular one is taken from a project shared  by Rebekah Harwood,  so HUGE thanks to Rebekah for sharing...and prettiness aside, the WOW factor here is that the entire project  is made using just one sheet of 12x12  designer paper!

 This was my  trial run using designer paper I had left over from the Berry Blossoms pack which featured in the Spring mini catalogue. I plan to start making loads more of these cute boxes using some of the newly released  collections of  papers, but I simply couldn't wait to show this one off, because tomorrow it will be on its way to someone..                                                                 

From the one sheet of designer paper you can make the box, matching lid, a belly band to secure the two and a paper ribbon bow to decorate the band... and still have enough paper left over to make a pretty gift tag to compliment the project.

There is also the option to make a smaller insert to  provide another layer to the inside of the box, although  this would need to be from another piece of card  or paper as one 12 x12 sheet will only stretch so far and even a Stampin' Up! demonstrator cannot do the impossible... 

 But this little project shows just how great Stampin' Up! designer series paper is...it is really good quality of course but the real bonus is that all designer papers from Stampin'Up! are double sided so there is no such thing as a wrong side to the paper and the only 'difficulty' you will have is deciding which side to use. 

  I will upload more projects in the next few days...
Until next time, take care
