This project came from several places of inspiration and it all fell together perfectly, gotta love it! I asked DS what he wanted to get Daddy for Father's Day. He replied, "a movie, we go to a movie, in the theater." So cute and Daddy loves a movie too. I immediately thought of these darling little popcorn boxes I had sitting in the closet. Later on, when I went downstairs, I looked at the stamps I wanted to use, For Him stamps from Stampendous. PERFECT! The set (amazingly versatile) had a small striped pattern, stamp it in red, and you get the popcorn box look! :) I made two boxes, one for Daddy and one for Grandpa. They are going to be a great way to wrap up a movie gift certificate and sports tickets!!
The boxes are white and shiny. When stamping on these, I would strongly recommend dye-based inks. They dry more quickly and just seem to work better. The boxes also have an angle, meaning, you can't cut squares to decorate the boxes. So, I adhered cardstock, which was longer than the box, to the front of the box, turned the box over, and then cut away the excess.
I have one more cute project tomorrow, also inspired by the little man. :) Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
