“Window Shopping” Birthday Candle Hexagonal Box

Warning.  These boxes can be addictive.  I made four on Monday afternoon while I was exploring the possibilities of what I could do with the boxes.  I had to force myself to stop for awhile.

I needed a birthday box so played around until I came up with this finished project:

Happy Birthday Window Box Thinlits Box (142762)

I had some fun coloring the paper I placed behind the die cut candles.  I scribbled, diagonally, with our new Watercolor Pencils on a 1-3/4″ times 3 piece of Whisper White card stock.

Then I semi-carefully swiped the watercolor scribbles with the my Aqua Painter.  The colors muddied up a bit here and there but in the long run it didn’t really matter.

I cut the rectangular piece into three 1-3/4″ square segments and then attached them behind the candles.

Be sure to watch the Stampin’ Up! video before starting your first box for some good tips for assembling (and die cutting) the box.
