The Paper Players – PP408 – A Theme Challenge from Joanne

Click to enlarge.

We have a Theme Challenge over at The Paper Players!  This week, our challenge host, Joanne, is asking us to create cards using the theme Lunchbox Love Notes.  I have to be honest, I had no idea what a lunchbox love note was until I saw other postings (I don’t have any children and don’t take my lunch to work!).  So I was literal with the challenge.

First, I made a dimensional card using MFT’s lunchbox dies. To easily open my lunchbox, I added an accordion hinge (see picture).  Second, I made some “love notes” by creating small notebook pages using a die cut and a “lined” stamp.  I added doodles and a sentiment, then adhered inside my lunchbox.  Enjoy.

Supplies: My Favorite Things Lunchbox, Lil Inker Designs Notebook Doodles, Lil Inker Designs Notebook, Versafine (gray), Hero Arts ink (soft pool), acetate, Mirracard

    What a fantastic take on the challenge! I would never have thought of this … but it’s fabulous. Oh… and I have to say, I love the 70s style font with the 70s purple! I swear I had a pair of shoes that color, with 5 inch heels and 3 inch platforms!

    Well Elizabeth, for someone who didn’t know what to do with this challenge, you sure did an amazing job! You just happened to have lunchbox shaped dies? And the little notes… just perfect! Way to go!

  5. Annie A. says:

    Oh My Goodness! I thought that was a REAL miniature lunch box only to find out it was your own creation! So creative! And your notes on actual lined notepaper are perfect!

    I couldn’t wait to comment on your card this week Elizabeth – it really is so clever; you created an actual lunchbox – I’ve never seen anything like it! And I love those doodled notes – this would be perfect for Rebecca and many of her discerning teenage friends – very girly! I am truly in awe of your fabulous creation – way to rock my challenge this week! Sending you hugs!! xxx
