It's slumpsville for me...

Well readers...friends...fellow stampers! I have officially hit a BAD slump! I haven't been able to create ANYTHING this past week. Of course I have been super busy and what not...but OMG I've hit it bad. I did however manage to finish ONE project...a treat holder/candy box slider. I received one of these this past Halloween from a swap and LOVED the way the box just slid out...kinda like the popcorn sliders... I too made these for a swap. Ela...if you're reading...LOOK AWAY!!! These are for your sweet treat swap. ;)

Anywho...since my Scor-Pal had been collecting dust due to my running around and this and that...I broke it out to make these. Very easy to make now with my Scor-Pal...how could I have lived without it? To create the slider box, I used an 8 X 11 sheet of CS. I lined up the long side of the CS against the top of the SP and scored at 2 1/2", 3", 7 1/2", & 8". I then flipped the CS and lined up the shorter side to the top of the SP and scored at 1". I cut the bottom "tabs" and folded CS to create the box. After adhered the tabs to form the flat bottom. I used the box of gummies to help flatten it. I then just stamped and decorated at choice. Sorry I didn't do a photo tutorial...but like I said...I have just been so out of it.

I used the bundle from the SU hostess set Spring Solitude and the treats...well...those are a box of gummies...yummm! Thanks for looking and I hope to come out of my slump to be posting here more often now with the kids out of school. Until next time!

CS/DP: GGuava, CChip, & WWhite
Ink: GGuava & CChip
