PWC169 AsianSophiabox wm

Hi everyone,

It’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge over on the Paper Pretties Blog. This week the challenge is to create anything but a card.

While I was thinking about what to do for this challenge I came across a fun box made using the Sizzix mini milk carton die, by cutting out 2 boxes and joining them. While searching on how to create this box I discovered another blog that showed instructions on how to create another box which was similar but had legs on it which gave the box an Asian look.

As I have tons of Asian style papers & Paper Pretties has Sophia dressed in a Kimono called Fan-tastic I just had to use this image and create this box. I found the tutorial for this on Kerry’s KB Papercraft blog if you want to find out how it is done.

How to Enter: If you would like to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project using the above challenge and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword PWC169.

Don’t forget to include a link to your card on the Paper Pretties Blog, so everyone can see it too. You don’t have to use Paper Pretties stamps to play, but of course if you have them we would love to see you use them. One random participant will receive a Paper Pretties Stamps set … see the Paper Pretties Blog for more details.

Stamps: Fan-tastic Digi Stamp – Paper Pretties
Paper: White; Red; Gold; DP
Other: Black Ink; Gold Ribbon; Sizzix Mini Milk Carton Die; Sizzlits Tag Die; Foam Tape; Copics
