Pinterest is always a constant source of inspiration for me, with so many wonderful home and office decor ideas. I found an adorable bookend set and knew it would work perfectly with this month's theme.

Scroll to the bottom for detailed instructions.

Up next on the hop is Anne Marie's Artfully Balanced Blog.

Box Gather List:

Book Board
2 - 3x5 7/8" divider wall pieces glued together to make double thickness
2 - 6x6" front and back walls
2 - 3 1/4x6" side walls
1 - 3x6" base

2 - 3 1/8x5 7/8" side panels Office Space White Print
1 - 5 7/8x6" back wall panels Office Space White Print
Misc. paper pieces - Office Space Jade, Coral, Manila, Retro Pattern, and Orange for paper succulents

Cork Boards
2 - 6x6" Front wall pieces glued together to make double thickness

Assembly Instructions: 

Cut one 12x12 cork board into four 6x6" pieces using a craft knife.

Sandwich two cork boards and two divider wall book board pieces together with Bookbinding Glue to make double thicknesses of each. Set aside to dry.

Draw a pencil line to mark position of the divider wall on the base. Add glue inside the marked areas and adhere.

Lay the base on its side and add glue to the edges of the book board.

Attach the front wall, and repeat for the back wall.

Finish the box by attaching the side book boards.

Glue the cork board onto the front of the box with Bookbinding Glue.

Cover the back and side walls with Office Space White Prints leaving an 1/16" reveal around each panel.

Stamp Office Space images from the Jumbo and Greetings UM sets onto shrink plastic to create thumbtacks embellishments. Fussy cut the images and shrink with heat tool.

Sand the tops of metal thumbtacks to prepare for gluing.

Allow the tacks to dry for up to 12 hours before use.

Punch and die cut papers to create paper succulents for the box.

Add rocks to the smaller box compartment and attach paper succulents with hot glue.

Admire your completed project :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Flextangle template challenge

Club Scrap offers so many fun and unique challenges on the Forum.

One of them is the Monthly Tool Challenge.

This month hostess Loree K. wanted us to work with Templates.

While browsing Pinterest a few months ago I stumbled across this fun interactive Babble Dabble Do project and it used a template to cut and fold into a unique shape.

Follow the links to the video presentation and the free template.

Print out the template and trace onto Paris Flea Market Light Gray paper.

Trace and cut out Master Board stamped panels from the template shapes.

Fill in the remaining triangle shapes cut with Paris Flea Market Deluxe kit prints, leaving one row of triangles empty.

Add Bookbinding glue to the empty areas and attach to the opposite edge to connect the Flextangle.

If gaps remain, fill in with a Glue Pen.

What a fun project!!

Club Scrap Boardwalk Blog Hop

Welcome to Club Scrap June Blog Hop featuring the Boardwalk kit. If you have arrived from the super creative Roni's Inkstains Blog then you are in the right place. If not, hop back to Karen's post at the Club Scrap Blog to see a complete list of all the talented bloggers.

Create a 12x12 layout filled with dimension and depth.

Select 12x12" papers from the Boardwalk Deluxe kit.

Make simple wavy cuts in the top Boardwalk Sage 12x12" print along the left hand side of the top paper layer with a sharp craft knife. Leave space at the top and bottom of the page in tact.

Lay the top cut layer over the second layer and make the initial wavy cuts. Remove the top layer and connect the cuts.

Continue making wavy cuts in all the papers.

Trim the middle cut layers to 5.5x12".

Add 3D foam squares to the backs of all the cut layers and attach to the top layer.

Attach a 6.5x11" black foam (recycled from shipment packaging) to the last 12x12 Boardwalk Deep Blue uncut base paper. Then lay the layered pieces onto the black foam to complete the page.

Create a faux boardwalk element with craft sticks distressed with Onyx Hybrid ink. Visit my Club Scrap Blog Post HERE for another faux boardwalk idea.

Attach a strip of 1.5x4.5" Sage paper to the back of the sticks to hold in place.

Add to the layout across the dimensional paper "marsh" on the layout.

Embellish with crab and lobster stickers. Visit my Club Scrap Blog Post HERE for details.

Add a title strip using the sticker technique and the Boardwalk Digital Kit
Thanks so much for joining us and I hope you will share your Boardwalk artwork using the linky party over at the Club Scrap Blog!
