Sparkling Tilda...

so after all the hoop-la that has been going on in my life...I had some energy last night and decided to make some little gifts for some friends I'll be having lunch with today! I just got in my new Magnolia stamps...Tilda is so cute! I used the image called sparkling Tilda for the front. I colored her with my copics...used my stickles and cut her out...I know...I know...with my tennis elbow...it didn't help one bit, but I just had to cut her out =) made them in pretty purple and pink color boxes...It's an original! I also used some of that stretch cord to finish the box.so here's the one of the purple ones...I used my pretty DP to cover the outside. I found a sweet sentiment to put on the front too. perfect for who I am giving this to.
here's the pink one...
okay...I know you are asking...where are the measurements! I am going by memory as I forgot to write them down! crazy me yah! it can fit something small inside...I put some stamped images to share. okay...here goes...hope you can understand my directions =)
CS is 4 1/4" x 10 1/2"
score @ 4 1/2", 5", 9 1/2" and 10"
(this is the 10 1/2" edge on top of the scorer)
score both ends @ 1/2" or if it's easier @ 3 3/4".
(this is the 4 1/2" edge on top of the scorer)
you will cut the tabs to create the box...but where you see the double score lines crossing each other, please cut this off...this is how you make your little flap to close the top of the box. also go ahead and corner round the corners.
put adhesive on the 1/2" flaps on the sides to put box together.
just add whatever DP and image you may want...
then you are all done!
have a wonderful Tuesday! I'm off to enjoy myself with friends =)

I love these! They turned out super cute! But don't forget to rest your elbow. I know, I had a sprained wrist, but still had the urge to craft (luckily it was my left wrist). Anyways, thanks for sharing the dimensions.
