Hello and welcome back to my blog.  I’ve been back from the annual Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip for 3 days and it just feels like there is not enough time in the day to do all the things I want to do.  Today I made this MILLY THE MOUSE triangle box.  I love the way she turned out so I just had to share her with you.

I got the idea and instructions from Steffi Helmschroff.  Steffi is a Stampin Up Demonstrator from Germany.  She is an amazing demonstrator and a wonderful person.  Steffi and her husband Frank were assigned dinner seats with us so that is how we met.  Steffi does not speak English and I don’t speak German so her husband Frank interpreted for us.  Frank is a sweetheart too, we really enjoyed meeting both of them.  Steffi and I exchange information so we can stay in contact.

Stefi has a YouTube Channel, so I checked it out.  I fell in love with this watermelon box that she made.  Her video is in German, but somehow, I figured it out.   Isn’t it cute?  Mine is slightly different than hers because the punch that she used to make the watermelon seeds is discontinued now and I didn’t have the stamp set she used for her sentiment.  But other than that I copied her idea.

 

Once I knew how to make the box, I started to think about other things I could make that in the shape of a triangle.  The first thing that came to mind was Candy Corn.  Halloween is coming up ( yes I know time flys) and we could use another cute goodie box so I made this one.

Notice that it is the same layout as the watermelon just made for a different occasion.

Well, what else can I make?  How about a mouse?  MEET MILLY the mouse.  Notice her tail, she makes me happy.

 

 

Here are all three boxes together.  Milly is bigger than the other two.  As long as you start with a square piece of cardstock you can make them any size.

 

The watermelon and candy corn were made from Whisper White cardstock and colored with the sponge rollers and ink.  On the watermelon, I used Garden Green and Real Red.  For the candy corn, I used Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie.  For the seeds on the watermelon, I used the little bits of cardstock that drop from the Hold Onto Hope Cross thinlit.

The product used to make Milly the Mouse are listed below.
