WCC30 Susan’s 3D Challenge
Welcome to a new Challenge.
This time around we are doing 3D!
Whatever trips your trigger as a friend of mine likes to say…if it has several sides or depth to it…you’re in. And we hope you will join us in submitting your very own 3D creation here.
Here’s my simple 3D treat holder:
And a side view so you can see how it all fits together.
Do you remember this little treat or card holder? People have been making them for over a decade (possibly more). Perfect for little gift cards just under 3″ wide and about 3″ – 4″ tall. Or in this case a little package of teas and sweets…perfect for someone recovering from a cold or flu or other malady.
I’ll let you in on a secret that I discovered years ago…the tea in the picture is Moroccan Mint tea from STASH. That tea is a wonder drug all on it’s own. Whether for morning sickness or the upset stomach and dizziness you get from chemotherapy this stuff is magic! And I can guarantee you that it tastes just like the mint tea that I had in Morocco back in 1975. The only brand I’ve found that does. I’m not sure if it’s the lemongrass or the blend of various mint teas or the combination but this stuff is powerful…and very good tasting. Fun to suck on a peppermint too and hold it in your teeth while you drink the tea through it. Just don’t let the mint go down the wrong way. Yeah…been there…done that.
And yeah…I should probably add the disclaimer that I’m not a doctor and take my suggestion with a grain of sense and salt. It may not work for everyone as I’ve described but I’ve given it to many, many people for whom it did work and used it myself. And no…I don’t work for STASH or get a commission. LOL
Are you wondering yet where the stamps and several of the papers came from? My latest (July) Paper Pumpkin is the source. Three wonderful sentiments, the cup, tea bags, steam and the plants that you’ll be able to use when the kit contents are gone. Have you tried that monthly pumpkin delight yet? Trust me…you will want to. Especially…because…drum roll please…you can get two months right now for 50% off!
Contact your demonstrator (I’m available if you don’t have one already Click the highlighted text to sign up :D) and ask them about the 50% off offer. It’s available until September 10th. Want the August Kit…sign up by August 10th…get going…what are you waiting for…today is the 9th!!!
Here are a few other views of the inside with it open and treats removed.

Stamps: My Paper Pumpkin July 2015 Kit – Thanks a Latte

Paper: Pool Party, Paper Pumpkin Kit papers and stickers
Punches: Large Oval
Other: Clip from kit, 1/8″ Gold Ribbon, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Small Cellophane bag, tea bags, Stampin’ Trimmer, Dimensionals, SNAIL
It’s a fairly simple construction that you can adapt to any size. In this case a 3″ x 11″ strip of cardstock that is scored at 4-1/2″ and 6-1/2″. Use the large oval punch to create the handles near the top. The small box is 4″ x 5″ and scored at 1″ all the way around on all sides. Cut along the score line up to the other score line on two sides at both ends. Fold and crease along score lines and adhere tabs as needed to form the box. Adhere bottom of box to the inside score area of the long cover piece. Decorate…tie some ribbon to hold the handles in and fill with your desired contents.
Please join the rest of the design team over at the Challenge blog website here to see the rest of the teams designs and to add your own with the linky doodad. When you add your own design and there are more than three entries, one of you will be a challenge winner and have the option to place the winner’s badge on your own site. Of course…you’ll also win bragging rights!
That’s it for this challenge. You can see the winner for the linky added projects for the last challenge here. It was a hard choice as all the entries were wonderful.
