My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge

Hey everyone!! Today I wanted to share with you my project for the My Pink Stamper design team challenge. She has 2 openings for her next design team and is accepting projects from her followers that would like to be part of her team. How exciting!! The rules of the challenge were simple just make a card, scrapbook page, or any other project with the cricut, the twist is you had to use her favorite colors, which are pink, green, and brown, then you got to chose one more color of your choice which was purple for me.
Okay on to my project. I was playing around in my craft room yesterday and I decided to try to make something different for this challenge. So I made a shape box at least that is what I'm calling it. It was very simple to make, after a little trial and error that is lol.

So what I did was picked my image which is this cute strawberry from the simply charmed cartridge. I cut it out at 10 1/2 inches. I cut the base image of the strawberry twice so that it would have a bottom. Then after a lot of trying to figure out how to make the box part of it, I decided to use the square box from tags, bags, boxes and more cut at 8 3/4 inches.

I used the cuttlebug and swiss dots folder to give the strawberry a little texture. I also used vintage photo distress ink and inked the edges of the green and tattered rose distress ink for the rosy cheeks. Then I put together all the layers of my strawberry. I scored and folded all the parts of the box, and put it together with scoretape. I then used scoretape again and attached the bottom at top of the box to the strawberry.

I hope you all enjoy this project and stop on over to The Pink Stampers website to see all the amazing projects everyone else has entered.
