Tombow Blog Hop w/ Guest Designer

Did you enjoy the DCWV/Tombow hop last week? What wonderful inspiration by everyone!
 
Today the Tombow DT is doing a little hop with our first guest designer Michelle Criswell.

After browsing Michelle's wonderful blog, I see she like to make a lot of 3-D projects, which is probably my favorite thing to do.

As I sit here typing this up it is snowing outside. It's hard to believe Easter is Sunday with all the snow we have been getting. However, I wanted to share a spring-y box with you.

The box is an Inky Antics stamp that you stamp onto designer paper (tip: use a pale color so that the lines don't show on the inside), then cut, score, fold and glue together. I like using Mono Multi Liquid Glue so that I know it will STAY put together.

I colored the dragonfly (also Inky Antics) with Irojiten Color Dictionary Pencils and added glitter with Mono Aqua Liquid Glue.


So that the ribbon doesn't fall off, adhere it to the bottom and sides with the Dot Pattern Adhesive Stamp Runner. The sentiment is added to the front with foam tabs.

Now it's time to head to Melissa's blog to see her beautiful project. Here is a list of the players in case you get lost along the way.
