#ccbquickquirkyproject - A Canvas Corp Brand Creative Crew Challenge

Hi Friends,

If you know know how I am about a challenge! Just even the hint of a art challenge and I am all over it! So when Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew said..hey..make a quick and quirky project using junk mail..I said OK! I have been meaning to make some homemade truffles for a friend who has been very supportive,,,and making a cute box for them to go into seemed like a good idea. I had some light cardstock weight junk mail and some fun papers and mists from Canvas Corp this is what I made :)

The finished box measures 4 inches by 6 inches and will hold 12 truffles perfectly.

The inside and outside are both covered with paper from 7 Gypsies.


The tag has raised chipboard letters, a paper butterfly and seam binding all colored with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

The box has some paper flowers that are colored with Glimmer Mists too.

Here is a video of the process of how it was made if you are interested :)

    1. Thank you Win :) These colors are a bit different then my usual eye popping brights but they worked great for the truffles :)
