Club Scrap April blog hop: Cherry Blossom

Welcome to our monthly Club Scrap blog hop.
This month we show case the Cherry Blossom kit.

    On the
                                        Club Scrap Blog 
you can find
           all the participants of this blog hop,
but I hope 
you have arrived here from
Jennifer's Blog
and enjoyed seeing her beautiful work.

I thought with Mother's Day, birthdays or just visiting a friend
these choclate boxes would be a nice gift idea.
You need a 3,5 x 10 inch piece of cardstock
and some chocolate sticks (it holds 4 of them).
Here is the template of the box.
Click on it and you get a larger version
so you can see the sizes better.

Use a score-board and scissors

and a paper punch of die of any shape you like.
This here is a Stampin'Up! punch.

Before folding and glueing the box it is best to
decorate first.

Box 1 has a panel from the design paper
and a stamped and cut out parasol, tiny sequin flower
and a stamped sentiment.

Inside also the same design paper and a few of the
cute flower stickers that came with the kit.
Two more stamped parasols.
Used a piece of velcro for closing.

Box 2: I stamped the complete outside with
the cherry blossom stamp and colored them with
a pink aquarel pencil. Used a tiny flower stamp
and fuchsia ink for more stamping.
Stamped sentiment and tiny flowers made with
aflower punch and sequins.
Used a ribbon (taped to the back) for closing.

 The stamping was more than enough for decorating
the inside.
Box 3: Background and inside panel is stamped with the kanji
text and some open flowers. Next I used the tag that came
with the kit and added all the flowers in the holes of the bottom.
Flowers are made with a punched out flower and the sequins.
Used the ribbon for closing diagonally.

Inside the box I added a few of the flower stickers.

And here some scrapbooking!
I looked ad the ALSB file of this kit and picked one
that was good for my pictures and adapted a little.

Left page: I added these crane birds from Michael Strong 
on my page. I stamped these on the silver vellum kind of
paper and embossed them with black embossing powder.
 They look perfect in place with the cherry blossm branch.

Right page: text printed with the computer,
another smaller crane and the ribbon is stapled
behined the picture.

You can never have enough inspiration, so
please go and visit
Pam's Blog
and see what she has come up with using
the cherry blossom kit.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
