Verve Project Parade Sizzlin' Summer Fun!

Hello!  The Verve Project Parade is going on right now, and of course I had to play along!  The theme is Sizzlin' Summer Fun and here is what I came up with:

One thing you always need when playing out in the sun is sunglasses!  I thought I would create a little gift box that was the perfect size to house a pair of sunglasses :)  I think this would be a fun summer gift!



See~ they fit perfectly!  I created my own version of a 2,5,7,10 box.  I scored an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cs at 2, 5, 7, and 10 then cut off the top so that the sunglasses would fit inside.  I then made a lid for it.  I cut a piece of cs to 5" x 4" then scored all the way around at 7/8".  I added a punched border and it was complete!  For my box, I used some dp from the Cosmo Cricket DeLovely mini deck and added this fun sentiment from the Verve Relax set.  The flourish and flowers are from Happy Days.  I also added a little stitching around the border.  Here is the top:




I used some gorgeous yellow striped grosgrain ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon found HERE,  and a sentiment from the Verve set Big Wish.  Hopefully I've inspired you to create your own Sizzlin' Summer Fun project:)  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Oooo this is GORGEOUS Kerri! I adore the citrus colours you've used (I must buy some of that Cosmo Cricket paper, hee hee!) and of course orange is my fave colour! What a fab idea to make a gift box for sunnies! x

What a great box, I love the stitching the border punch and the ribbon. I like the idea of a sunglass box, that would be cute by my phone so they don't get lost!!

BTW, I'm going to buy some ribbon from RRR this weekend. :)

Love the colors - thought that was a base of Summer Sunrise, but it's SU! - - it's really pretty. And I love that punch too - - but do you have any problems with it? I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I'll get like every I don't know, 5th scallop the little part in between each scallop is crooked. So...I've started NOT using this one and using the Fiskars apron punch and have no issues. Wonderered if you had that issue too. I just did a close up and I think you do too...so it's not me. Do you KWIM? Not like the average joe would notice....just irritating for me. And I always love your little HB tags like that. You should sell those on ETSY!

What a great little box for the sunglasses. I can never keep track of my sunglasses. I have never lost a pair of keys in my life, but I buy sunglasses in bulk because I am always losing them ;)

How fun! Love the little scallop peeking out from the lid and the fun pink hibiscus. Good luck!
