JUGS Template Challenge



It is time for another JUGS Challenge.  It has been a lot of fun being a guest designer this month.   This week we received a template from "My Time Made Easy". The name of this template is "In Suspense".   Isn't this a great idea -- a box that will hang on a door knob.  I printed out the template and cut it out using design paper from Martha Stewart.  The hole for the knob was cut out with a circle Nestability. 

For my decoration on the box I used a cardinal from the Heartfelt Creations  "Snowy Cardinal Precut set".  The cardinal image was stamped using black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. The image was cut out with scissors.   I stamped one of the single cardinals from the  Cardinal Family Precut set, colored it with Copics, then cut it out with the matching Cardinal Family diecuts.  It was attached with dimensional tape to give the design a 3-D effect.  This image was attached on the front of the box with dimensionals. 

The greeting on the lid is from the JustRite "Something Sweet" stamp set.  I cut around the outer edge with scissors and it is also attached with dimensional tape.  Three small red pearls were added to it.  A pretty silk bow was made and attached on the top.  I added some krinkle paper strips and filled the box with  Chocolates.

I think this will be a very cute "surprise" to leave on my neighbor's door.

Be sure to check out the JUGS blog to see a lot more cute ideas using this MTME template.  Hope you will join in on this fun challenge.
