Weaved Spring Boxes

Pin It

Recently I was chosen to participate in a craft challenge from Scribble Shop along with several other bloggers. Scribble Shop is an online craft store with over 75,000 products.We were sent a box of supplies and told to think of it as the Iron Chef of crafting.

This is what was in the box they sent me.

Supplies from the box:

Other Supplies used:


To start out I stamped dot's all over the scrapbook paper using the Pastel Stamp Pad and the eraser of a couple pencils. I also used Craft Paints and  the Colored Pencils to stencil on some of the designs with the Stencil.

Fold the paper in half and horizontally, and unfold.

Fold the side up to the middle fold, repeat with all four sides.
Fold the corner diagonally so that it pulls the sides together to form a box shape.

Repeat with each of the corners. Your paper should like the one above.
Cut 4 slits in each four sides of your paper. Don't cut the corners though. These don't need to be exact, just eyeball about the same length apart

Weave three  Popsicle Stick in each side and secure in place with Mod Podge.

Here is what you should have so far.

Cut out your corner piece leaving a flap on one side and cutting off the other flap.
(I left both flaps on for the first box and it didn't work as well).

Trim off the excess paper above the Popsicle sticks and glue each flap to the back side of the box to form your box shape. Mod Podge inside and out of your box.

Using a Glue gun glue and a glue gun glue Glass Gems to the corners on the bottom of the box.

Cut two 12 inch by 1 ½ inch strip of colored cardstock and fold in half both lengthwise and width wise.

Mod Podge these pieces around the top of the box. Mod podge the box inside and out.

Add Glass Gems, Dress It Up Embellishments, and Raffia painted with craft paint and tied in a bow around the box.

I cut a piece of cardboard from a empty cereal box and a matching piece of cardstock and Mod Podged it inside of the box for added stability.

Painted the frame with craft paint and stenciled on a design with craft paint. Added a Motivation Rub On Quote and glued on a Popsicle stick rose.

The finished set!
So what do you think? Did I rise to the challenge?

Very Springy! I'm impressed you used everything from the box.

My vote is a big Yes! I think you definitely rose to the challenge! I can't wait until I have time to try this myself. These boxes would be so much cuter to hold paper scraps or small pcs waiting to be filed in their proper drawer! What a cool idea!

Amy Anderson said...

You DEFINITELY rose to the challenge! These are so cute. And the woven sticks idea was genius.

Tammy said...

Wow! Rose to the challenge? I'll say!! And you'd never know those were Popsicle sticks. Great job! :)

What a clever way to reinforce the boxes! Well done. I love the mirror frame from a cereal box idea, too. Nice!

Hi Heather,

Thank you for participating in the Scribble Shop Challenge.

The Weaved Spring boxes and frame are so Springy. It was such a good idea to use the popsicle sticks to weave though paper.

We are posting the finalist on our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/ScribbleShop tomorrow, March 30th, 2012.

Stay Tunned!
