Hi Pebbles friends! It’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing my take on the “geometric shape” challenge. I took a totally different direction on the challenge, and perhaps you won’t even be able to tell that I took the challenge at all…yet. First though, let me share these super fun little treat boxes using the “Warm & Cozy” collection, along with the Candy Box punchboard to create these boxes. I felt like this collection was just perfect for all things “gifty” for autumn, so this combination seemed like a natural fit. Plus, the punchboard makes kind of a geometric-ish shape, right? Ok, I know it might be a bit of a stretch, but I love the results anyway!
I made 3 different sizes of boxes and I embellished each one with various pieces from the collection. Here’s a closer look at each of the three boxes.
And here’s a look at the punchboard I used to make them. The directions are printed right on the box, so it’s super easy to use.
Cut the paper to 7 inches wide, and any length you want for each box. I made one 9 inches, one 7 inches, and one 5 inches.
After cutting the paper to the desired size, just follow the step-by-step instructions to complete each box. This is where the real “geometric” portion of my project comes into play. You see, when you follow the steps for the box, you punch out these diamond shapes.
If you make several boxes, you’ll end up with lots of different patterned diamond shapes. Now, it just wouldn’t be right to let these cute shapes go to waste, right?
Here’s now I used them! I lined them up and put them on the front of a card. How’s that for being frugal and creating something fun too?!?
Thanks for stopping by to see my project today!
