Inspired Stamps DT Thursday

 Hello.  Inspired Stamps DT Thursday post with summer projects using a 2 X 2 individual scripture stamp.   I saw this post recently using the We R Memory Keepers candy punch board to make a hexagon box and I thought I would like to try it. I used Bazzill cardstock and used floral border punch and Vintage Marketplace papers for the bottom border.  I used Proverbs 3:5 as my individual scripture and inked with Peacock Feathers distress ink.  I added a punched heart and coated it with glossy accents.  I made the flowers from a Cuttlebug flower die set and added them to bamboo skewers.
I closed the top of the box with pink baker's twine.  I love how the box can act as a little vase for my paper flowers.  I thought this would make a great gift for a friend who might need a bit of encouragement.
I hope you like this project.  I list the directions down below.
 To make the hexagon box:  You need a piece of cardstock 6 X 10.25 inches.  Score short side at 1.75 inches and 4.5 inches. 
Placing the cardstock with the 1.75 inch scored edge at the top of the candy punch board, follow the directions on the punch board for punching and scoring the top side of the box.
Fold all the edges making sure to get good, crisp folds.  Cut on the hexagon score lines up to the 4.5 inch score line and fold in.  This will make the bottom of your box.  To clean up the look of the bottom, punch a large circle to fit over the bottom of the box (see photo below).
Decorate and fill as desired.  I hope you will try this versatile box and I love how we now have another option for this punch board.  I love getting more out of my tools.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  Make sure to check out all the other DT projects and the Inspired Stamps blog for combining your love for art journaling and memorizing scripture.
