Wednesday Be Inspired

This Wednesday is special and I've been so excited! We get to unveil the DT creations using the new Stars folder at Cuttlebug Challenge. And we are also unveiling the first of the new DT's creations.
The Stars folder is just amazing and I love the detailed stars. This is one of my favorites because there's so many different uses for a Star folder.
Here is my first creation using the new folder:

I used a Timeless Template from Papertrey Ink to make my little recipe box. I have some recipes that I only use in the Summer to grill, etc. This little box is going to be a special place to store all of those recipes. I used Melissa Frances paper, Nestabilities, my Cuttlebug and the Star folder, rub-on's from Oriental Trading, and a Jenni Bowlin button. This little project was so fun. I ran copper ink over all my embossing to make it slightly stand out.
Here is the inside of my box:

Then I made a card and treat box using my Cuttlebug and the Stars folder:

I embossed my card and then lightly painted over it with Tim Holtz Crackle Paint. I also used a Melissa Frances tag and Michaels $1 Stamp. Thanks Mom for the little treat boxes! My little box is also embossed using the Stars folder.
Now it's your turn, using your Cuttlebug use the colors red, white, and blue plus buttons to make this week's project. Use whatever embossing folder you wish. Be sure to check out the DT's amazing creations at Cuttlebug Challenge!
