"Willoughby" Scallop Box

Here's another sample of our Willoughby paper which I am loving it to use! Great colors for masculine gifts. But I wanted to show you this feminine-looking scallop box I made with this paper. (Had this been a gift for a man, I probably would have layered two different kinds of buttons instead of the flower for an embellishment and probably added some brads on the corners.) Anyhow I made this scallop box differently than Beate's instructions. I suggest you read their directions to know what I'm talking about here: To make the top scallop lid, it called for using a "five in one template" to make the circle scallop. I didn't have one so here's what I did: I cut a 4" circle and folded it in half. I then took that half and lined it up to each of the 4 sides of 4x4" square, traced it and then used this as my cutting template to make the box lid. It then called for a corner piece to complete the scallop lid. I did it differently: I punched a 3" scallop circle with our Giga scallop punch , cut it in half. I took those halves and adhered to the corners. This makes the box lid complete. Note: I scored all lines with the Scor-Pal (don't forget you can get this at half price, or anything from the catalog, with your $100 Funshop!) The edges of box were edged with Jumbo Java brown inkpad. Note: To make the top embellishment on the box I punched a green 3" circle scallop, a brown 2-1/2" circle. I layered them together and added a green felt flower from our embellishment jar collection. Love these jars...they're jam-packed with felt flowers, paper flowers, some have sliders and of course some wonderful buttons! The collection I used was "Hillary". Notice that I tucked some cream tulle and green ribbon behind the flower. Also note that I used a gold marker to make the dots on the scallop circle and side corner scallops. Here is a close up of the top and side: Hope you enjoyed this...any questions email me please. Enjoy the rest of the day!
