Creations by AR for Tuesday Throwdown!

It's Tuesday and you know what that means?  It's time for another challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown!  We're being sponsored by the oh so talented Adela at Creations by AR!  Making 3d projects is so much fun!  It always surprises me what you can do with a little inginuity and paper.  Well, in my case, with instructions and paper!  Adela has a way of making something that looks so difficult and gorgeous into something very simple and easy to follow and still gorgeous.  Our challenge was to show our team spirit with one of Adela's gorgeous templates.

I hope I didn't jinx the Detroit Tigers with my project!  I have really enjoyed watching them play this season and while they didn't win the World's Series, they sure did play with heart and brought a lot of excitement to my part of the world!  Go get 'em next year, Tigers!  Here's the front of my Slotted Gift Box:


Isn't this too cute?  This slotted gift box is perfect for so many things - gift cards, photos, cash, you name it and it will fit in it!  The papers are from my stash and the base paper for the card is Co'redinations.  The gems and ribbon are from my stash and I made the flowers used on the inside with my cricut cartridge and added some branches from a Martha Stewart punch.  The image is Sassy Pin Up Kitty from Sassy Studio Designs and is colored with copics and Spectrum Noir markers.  A little tiger has to shimmer so you know I added some Stickles to her outfit and you can't tell, but she has Glossy Accents on her pumps.


I added a cute Mickey Mouse card that I received as an advertisement in the mail to show how perfectly a gift card fits into this cute little box and the box is so easy peasy to put together!  Like I said, Adela gives very easy to follow instructions with her templates.  Thanks so much, Adela!


Here is a side view of the box.  I added some of the tiger patterned paper to the side and the ribbon holds the box together.  And here's a view of the inside of the empty box.


I had the best time working with Adela's templates and making this box!  Make sure that you stop by the Tuesday Throwdown blog to see what my ever so talented design team buddies have to inspire you to show your team spirit!  Let's see it!  Rah!  Rah!  Go team!
