It's a ScrapMatters iNSD Blog Train

Just a very quick posting from me this morning!

If you are here for the Blog Train - Welcome!!You should be arriving from Amber's stop on the train .

If you have arrived here and haven't been following the train, make sure you go to the ScrapMatters blog to start the train so that you aren't missing any of the goodies that will be available on this train!

Here is the preview of my blog train stop freebie:

*Sorry - but the blog train is over and the link has been removed*

This freebie coordinates with the printable that I created using the ScrapMatters Design Team collab "Moments that Matter"

The printable set that the Hybrid Team and Designers put together as a Free with Purchase:

I call my printable a "Will you be my....?" box - I thought it would be a super cute way for the Bride-to-Be to ask her friends or family to be her bridesmaid/maid of honor/matron of honor. My blog freebie could be printed out and added to the top of the box to "pop" it off to make it more 3D.

The box from the outside:

and here's what the inside would look like assembled:

This was really easy to put together and it could be changed to whatever color you'd like just by changing the buttons.

Supplies needed to put this box together: Adhesive of choice, ribbon of choice, buttons of choice, glue dots.

First, print (on your printer's best print settings - I highly recommend Red River paper for printing your projects or Epson Matte Presentation Paper for the best color), cut all pieces and assemble the box.

Punch holes in the journal tabs that spell out "Will you", "be my", "bridesmaid" or other wedding party postion and then the "Say Yes!" tab.

Next, cut a length of ribbon atleast 12 inches long. Slide the journal tabs onto the ribbon and space to your liking. Leave a couple of inches at the top so that you can adhere it to the inside of the box lid with a glue dot.

Then I strung thin twine through the buttons from the front to the back and tied the buttons to the ribbon just above each tab.

Trim the bottom of your ribbon.

And there you have it - a fun way to ask a friend or a family member to take part in your special day!

Hope you enjoy it! Your next stop on the blog train is the Fabulous Jenna

If you get lost along the way, you can go back and start at the ScrapMatters blog
