UDI Inspiration Challenge #117

I had a lot of fun this week on the UDI inspiration challenge.  This one came to me as I went to sleep one night.  I took a 12x12 sheet of Chocolate Chip card stock and scored it at 4" and 8" on both sides.  Then I scored each corner box in the middle at a diagonal.  It folds up very neatly and would make a great gift for someone to add pictures to it of a party.  You can make it appropriate for any occasion depending on stamps and colors you choose to use.  I made the lid out of Old Olive and added some Chocolate Chip 5/8" grosgrain ribbon.  I was so excited to use my Brights collection of DSP as well as my Celebrations Quick Accents.  It came together really quickly.  Using my Big Shot I cut out the H and B with my Serif Essentials alphabet dies. I added a little more color by adding a button with a bow tied using the linen thread and attached with a glue dot.  I hope this inspires you to come up with a great project.  I would love to see what you come up with.  Be sure to check out what the other talented UDI team members came up with this week.
