My Project:  My project for this week was inspired by the Heart2Heart June 27, 2016 Challenge "3D Delights".  For the 4th I needed something for a candy favor and remembered that my friend had made a Twisted Box awhile ago (click here)...so I went to YouTube and chose to use France Martin's tutorial for the 12 x 12 card stock (click here)  For the box I used CTMH Colonial White and random stamped a variety of stamps from several stamp sets using the other two colors in the challenge.  Added a sentiment using a variety of stamps and fussy-cut both the circle and sentiment and adhered to the top of the box with a red twine.  







Me and Color Dare: My daughter introduced me to my first sketch challenge and shortly after that I started looking for other challenges that interested me.  Not too sure how I found Color Dare but possibly looking at other bloggers that shared their projects with several other challenges.  

Clicking along I found ColorMyHeart Color Dare...Wow, I can combine this with my sketch challenge.  And find a theme I want, just helps me design a project...I have my color, my sketch and my theme.  

Color Dare has also helped me to put color combinations together that I wouldn't normally do; it helps me to create outside of the box...and that's fun.  Weekly I submitted something to Color Dare for more than a year, and my calling came to join Color Dare as a DT member...a little hesitant, yes...but knew I could do it.  I'm happy to say I'm in my second 6-month term with Color Dare and it satisfies me with sharing my creativity with others and your sharing with us at Color Dare.  Hope I have inspired you to come back and create for future Color Dare Challenges.

Photo 1 is the outside top of the box, and the 2nd photo is the inside of the box before twisting...the bottom can be filled with candy, or a gift of money, or a small gift.  


  

Photo 1 shows the box is twisted and the top portion should look like a funnel.  Photo 2 shows the funnel filled with more candy, or other gift.   




There is also a You Tube tutorial on a smaller box using 8.5 x 11 cardstock by France Martin (Click Here) "Decorative Twisted Box".
