Criss Cross.....Box!!!???

Later in the afternoon yestreday...once CSI was about to start, I started feeling much better and started prepping to make these. Something about that show gets me in the mood to craft...lol...silly I know! I made these in breaks...during commercials! First I printed out the template provided by Nichole Heady, you can find the downloadable template at Nichole's blog! It's right below the 4th picture. While you're at it...check out the beauty she made!!! Ok, once I had the template printed out, I started pre-scoring and folding the CS. Once all was scored and folded, I cut the CS like in her diagram and began to stamp the "background". Next I punched the scallops and circles and stamped the chick in Close To Cocoa onto the white circles so the chickie can have brown hair and brown feet...lol. Next I stamped the chick onto yellow CS non SU using Basic Black, put that aside and stamped the chick again, but this time onto patterned paper. I took that with me to the sofa along with my paper snips to snip the chick and eggshell to later piece them onto the white circle. I did these during commercials...lol. Once I was done with the snipping and the second CSI came on (they have 3 in a row back to back from 6 - 9), I came back to my desk to assemble the boxes and cut the ribbon. By the time the second CSI was over, I was done! I got to enjoy the third episode by just sitting! LOL! Anywho...these were SO MUCH fun to make and I LOVE the outcome if I may toot my own horn! TOOT TOOT! So what do you think? Aren't these the bomb!!!??? These were made for a swap I'm in at SCS...and now I don't think I want to send them out...LOL!
