blog168ic176inspirationpiece.jpgToday over at Splitcoaststampers the Inspiration Challenge is an on-line store called Skeem where you can find beautiful candles and perfumes.  The  inspiration for my project came from the candle pictured here on the left.  It reminded me of a piece of double sided designer paper that I purchased several months ago.  I had not yet done anything with the 12″ X 12″ piece, so I decided to do a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) with the entire sheet.  I’m such a paper hoarder which means that doing a project that would use up ALL of the paper was a big deal for me!  lol

Here is the finished project.  The set consists of 6 cards and my favorite little box (template by Leslie Miller) in which to put them all.


Below each card is pictured individually.


On this first card I did a little stitching in the lower right hand corner.






And the box with an elastic band to hold it all together…


I had so much FUN!!  And I don’t seem to be suffering any negative effects from using that entire piece of designer paper!  Oh and for anyone interested, here is the template I created for the OSW.
