East is east and west is west
And the wrong one I have chose
Let's go where I'll keep on wearin'
Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows
Rings and things and buttons and bows ("Buttons and Bows" was written by Evans, Ray / Livingston, Jay)
Okay, I'll admit it ... in fact, I'm proud of it! I'm a HUGE fan of old movies. And so, when I began putting together this new Buttons & Bows Treat Box, the song from the 1948 Bob Hope and Jane Russell movie, Paleface, began playing in my head (in fact it's still playing in my head ... I can't get rid of it!) Now, far be it from me to prevent you from sharing in the joy of having this song stuck in YOUR head! Here's a video clip from the movie (please don't hate me for this!)
He, he ... did you enjoy that! Well, it really doesn't have anything to do with this project except it shares a name! Now that you've heard the song, I dare you to get it out of your head (and if you figure out how, please let me know!).
Well, all that aside, let me introduce you to the newest Kit and Tutorial at Inspiration in Action, the Buttons & Bows Treat Boxes. The Kits come in two color-coordinated choices:
- Watercolor Wonder -- Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Calypso Coral and Marina Mist
- Gingham Garden -- Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz and Marina Mist
Each kit sells for $19.95 and includes everything you need to make four (4) treat boxes -- cardstock, Designer Series Paper (patterns may vary from that pictured), die cuts and punchies, ribbon and buttons. The completed boxes measure 3.5" square and are about 3" high. They are perfect for holding a bag of candy, a cupcake or any small gift or trinket ... even frills and flowers and rings and things! Wouldn't they look lovely at a wedding or baby shower, Easter Brunch, Mother's Day luncheon or as May Baskets or really for any occasion when you want to bring a smile to the face of someone you love.
This is a fairly easy project to assemble and beginners should have no problem completing all four boxes in less than an hour. A fully illustrated tutorial will be e-mailed to you when your kit is mailed and includes directions for two different ways to tie the bows. Tools and supplies needed to complete the project include: Paper Trimmer and Scissors, Scoring Tool, Bone Folder, SNAIL adhesive, Sticky Strip Adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.
Shipping and handling to the continental US is included in the cost of the kit. Although I can ship internationally with this kit, please note that additional postage charges will apply and may be prohibitive (international mailing rates have risen drastically in the past year)! E-mail me if you have questions!!!!
Again, kits sell for $19.95 each (which includes the digital PDF sent to your inbox) and Tutorials are just $5. Place your order by clicking on the PayPal button below.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have enjoyed my new Button & Bows Treat Boxes (and that blasted song that you can't get out of your head)!
