Bildmålarna Challenge 4 is to make a box using a Bildmålarna image. I have a little Scor-Buddy so headed off to the Scor-Pal web site in search of something suitable. Seeing the instructions for a little Favor Box I decided it would be the perfect container for a Cadbury's Creme Egg (here in the UK chocolate eggs are exchanged at Easter). The result was so much more accurate, quicker & easier than when using a ruler with pencil & bone folder/ball tool that my husband suggested I get myself the full size Scor-Pal.
The rooster image was the perfect fit for my heart punch, but every time I use this punch (despite umpteen punchings of foil) the result has an obvious nick in the edge. My eye alighted on a neglected Tim Holtz Distressing Tool (I've never got on with distressing apart from the inking type) & I had a go - a few false starts but I'm really rather pleased with the result after inking my carefully "distress tooled" edges. You might even see me doing this again!
