Mint Motif template and video

Today I have a fun template and video to share with you! With the square images in this set, I thought it would be fun to create blocks or boxes. So, I designed a template just for you to use. The template allows you to perfectly place your stamped image on each side of a box.

You can download your own template HERE. And it is working correctly! :)

Here is a direct link to the video, for those that need it. VIDEO

Baby Blocks

Here is what I made with the template. Before assembling the boxes, each side was stamped with one of the Very Square images.

Baby Blocks CU

I stamped another set of squares with the polka dot image onto cardstock and cut them out by hand. Circles were then die cut out of each one and each square was mounted to the front of the blocks. The letters were die cut from another stamped background, along with the butterflies. Aside from the template and the dies, Very Square was used to create the whole project!

AND tomorrow is the day! Release day! At 3:01 AM EST you can head to iheartpapers.com and purchase Very Square and Very Square sentiments!! The design team and myself will all have projects on our blogs tomorrow and you really don’t want to miss what they created!! Wow. I still cannot believe that it is real!!

Have a super day, enjoy the template, and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps-Mint Motif (Very Square-available May 14th), Ink-Palette (Paris Lights, Landscape, Water Lily, Belle Rose), Spellbinders die templates (Classic Circles Small), Punch (Martha Stewart)

The box template download is still not working, and most of the pictures in this post won't load. Only the picture of the patterns set shows up. :-(

I'll check back later when hopefully I can see something! Best of luck with your new Mint Motifs!
