Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope all of you are enjoyed your Mother’s Day.  I’m spent my Mother’s Day weekend with my husband and friends in Moab, Utah running the Red Rock Relay.  I did it last year and had so much fun.  Once again we had a great time.

Red Rock 2014

I wanted to share with you real quick the project we made last month for our monthly club.

Mother's Day Box

Each club member was able to make this adorable mother’s day gift box perfect for that special gift for mom.  The box was made using the envelope punch board.  Yes this board is great for so much more then just making envelopes.

Mother's Day Box Open

To make the box I started with an 8×8 piece of paper.  I used the punch board and lined my paper at the 5 then punched and scored.  Afterwards I moved it to the 3 and punched and scored again. I repeated this on each side of the paper.  Once I was done with that I used the corner rounder on the top to round all my edges.  Last you will want to flip the paper over and use your score board to score the center marks on each of the corners.  This is the part that you can see folded in.  This is also where I placed the glue to hold the box together.  You don’t need to do this only if you want the box to stay together withouth the belly band.  In the picture below I’ve drawn in the score lines so you can see them.

I finished the box off with a fun belly band.  You’ll notice that our box matches the cute card that was available to make in the card buffet.

Mother's Day Flower Card

Here’s a close up of the cute belly band and the flowers that pop.  I finished the flowers off with a little pearl in the middle.  I love how they look.  Remember to use your bond folder to curl your flowers and give them more dimension.

I hope you had fun sharing projects with your mother this mother’s day.  I love sharing handcrafted projects with my Mom as well as family and friends.
