2013 Autumn/Winter Idea Book Release and New Product Hop

I am so excited to be able to tell you today is the day you can view the New Idea Book for Autumn/Winter online.  If you would like to receive a copy of the book please email me, and I will get one out to you.

There are so many wonderful New Items and I wanted to create some projects to show you.  I really like the New Huntington Paper Packet(X7174B), and decided with Autumn only a month away that I would use that for today's preview.  Along with the paper I used the Huntington Stickease(X7174C) and the Huntington Assortment (Z1881) to create this super cute and easy Card Box(Z1647).

The great thing about making this card box is that I used less than 2 sheets of paper.  I used about 3/4 of a sheet of Barn Red Cardstock, and 5/6 of a sheet of the Champagne/Cashmere patterned paper.  That leaves me with 5 sheets of Cardstock and 5 sheets of patterned paper that I can make cards with.  Check back in the next 3 days on my blog and I will have cards made to accompany this card box.

So for this card box, I firstly started by inking all the edges, inside and out with reinker and the areas that need a touch up and I went back in with a marker.  The colour used is Barn Red.  While that dried, I started by cutting my papers.  I only needed 2 sheets of paper for this project.  A sheet of Barn Red cardstock.  Once I had the pieces cut I sanded all the edges to bring out the white core.  Then I cut all my pieces of Cashmere/Champagne Patterned Paper.  Once the box was dry I started adhering the paper to the box.

On the top of the box, I added one of the stickease from the collection, as I wanted to keep this a very simple design.

Then I added one of the bottons from the collections Assortment to the flap.  I think it just gives it that finished look.
I also covered the inside of the box, which is why I also had inked the inside.  My hubby liked it and tried to claim it as his cigar box.  

Now don't forget to hop through and check everyone else's projects.  And come on back and check out my collection of cards in the next few days that will coordinate with this box.
