April Bring in the Sun Challenge by Stacy H-W

Design Team Member Stacy submitted this altered box for the April Bring in the Sun Challenge. She said:

Hello again,

I loved the idea of this challenge so much that I decided to make a 2nd project to share.

I recently got the Ultimate Crafter's Companion Tool and man am I LOVING it!! It really does help you make a ton of different things. Different types of cards, envelopes, bows, embossing, boxes...the list goes on and on.

I have been playing around with it and decided to make this fun box. My children bought boxes of candy to give their teachers and the Ultimate Tool let me make this box in the perfect size.

I went with a bright orange box...because that is the color my son wanted the box to be. And then I used some Sassafras Lass paper to make the sun and sun rays.

I just love how Sassafras Lass adds that decorative edge on their paper!! These scrap strips were absolutely perfect for edging out the box and making the sun rays.

I just typed out the sentiment and used my circle punch to punch it out. Easy peasy.

Now it's your turn to take the April Bring in the Sun Challenge. See all the details HERE!
