Stefanie Girard here with a fun DIY box featuring Teresa Collins ColorBox Pigment Ink and Wood Mount Stamps. I am in love with all things diamond. Maybe it’s the geometry, or maybe it’s the sparkliness…or both!
I was inspired by this month’s Color Challenge to make a little box using this fun Teresa Collins diamond rubber stamp.
First up I spritzed a piece of Bazzill Basics Paper in Avalanche (white) with the Gold Smooch Spritz in a random pattern.
Then stamped a bunch of the diamonds with ColorBox Pigment in Chamomile and embossed them with Opalescent Clear embossing powder.
Download the pattern.
Print out on translucent paper or cut out the pattern and trace it onto translucent paper (wax paper works too!)
Place pattern on the the stamped diamonds and trace or cut out 3 pieces.
Use a Xyron Tape Runner to glue the diamond side tabs to the inside of the next side of the diamond box.
Use a long reach hole punch to punch a hole in the center of one of the top tabs. Use a pencil to mark the next top tab under the first and punch a hole. Repeat for the 3rd top tab.
Cut two lengths of Darice Finishing Accents yarn about 14 inches each.
I used a scrap of wire folded in half to help thread the yarn through the bottom of the diamond box and then up through each of the holes in the top tabs.
Place whatever little goodies you like in your box at this point.
Tie a knot with the yarn at the bottom of the diamond box and slip a gold bead onto the yarn at the top of the box.
I didn’t happen to have a gold bead to I took a white bead and covered it with ColorBox Mini Gold and embossed it with the Opalescent Clear embossing powder.
I bet these would be fun to use as Christmas ornaments made in all sorts of pretty holiday colors.
