There's A Nap For That! Art Impressions

Seems we are all working very hard at work these days--- so I made this cute little box for my boss---a little something to cheer her up! I got this stamp from Inspiration Emporium, but it seems it is out of stock now. This is one of those projects where I worked a little here and a little there until I got it finished last night-finally!

I made the box with a Silhouette cut file from Jamie Lane and added some fun little flowers to tie in with the designer paper! I paper pieced her clothes, I added the stamped image on pop dots on top of the box.

Some Silhouette talk here for those of you that have one:

The box is resized so I could use 8.5 x 11 cardstock for the box base. I think the box itself is  around  4.75 inches square and the top is 5 inches square. It is a little over .75 inches tall, a perfect size for little candy treats too. I  also did an internal offset and cut a piece for the designer paper on top. I sized a banner piece to fit my sentiment and also added a  few flowers.

Here it is opened up with a few office supplies inside...and a little treat tucked  in there too that you can not see!

Well that's it for me today-see you soon...Coming up is a Monday House Mouse post and Tuesday is a Creations by AR Blog stuff!!!
