Quick Quotes August Challenge- Summer Crafting

Hi everyone! Wendy here and today I'm bringing you August Quick Quotes challenge...SUMMER CRAFTING! We are half way through summer vacation and I have probably heard "I'm bored" no less than 5 times a day. My challenge for you is to create something with your kids to keep them entertained. No kids, no problem. Create a project or layout sharing what you are doing to keep yourself entertained (and cool) this summer.

Here's what you'll need: Quick Quotes pattern papers (Pattern Perfect Back 2 School Collection), Quick Quotes Powder Puff ink, empty tin, stamps (There She Goes), Glossy Accents, crayons

You may want to spray paint your tin with white spray paint before beginning. Trim papers to fit your box, rounding the corners and inking with Powder Puff inks. I used washi tape to cover the edges of the box. It was thin enough that the box could still close and wrap around the corners. Stamp a label and adhere to the box lid. I stamped a pencil, colored it and added a thick coat of Glossy Accents.

Trim a strip of paper to fit inside your box. Score and accordion fold. To make your book longer, adhere two strips together. Using a variety of stamps, decorate the inside of the book.

Measure strips of cardstock to fit the crayons and stamp a simple polka dot design in matching Powder Puff inks.
