Welcome back! Elizabeth Allan is sharing a special altered item today – a custom made and stamped chocolate box!

Tsukineko: Teal Zeal Memento Ink, Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz. Penny Black’s Blue Lagoon (09-002) cardstock was stamped with Flower Flourish in Teal Zeal ink and then traced with a box template. Acetate was inserted to create a window panel on the front. For a shimmery effect, the stamped paper was sprayed with Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz and the box top medallion was created from Puzzle Parts. Finished Size: 1 ¼ square / 2 inches tall.

      Hello Lynne. Thank you for your inquiry. The box measures 1 1/4 inches square and stands 2 inches tall. I made my own template with a 7 1/4 x 4 3/4 inch piece of cardstock. On the long side, it was scored at 1/4, 1 1/2, 2 3/4 and 4. On the short side, it was scored at 1/4, 1 1/2 and 3 1/2. If you click on the picture above it will link you to my blog where you will be able to see where the cut, folds and window were placed.
