Over on Create4Fun, challenge #33 is to use a template by one of the designers. Basically it's a box, and everyone seems to be creating something, using it as a box. Those scallops immediately gave me the impression of bubbles or whipped cream or something on that idea. So then I had to decide what color I wanted, and came up with green, so thought I'd make the box into a mint cream soda, straw and all.

So I printed out the template on 110# white cardstock, colored the back and front with Pan Pastels in a couple shades of green, and then cut it out.

I rubber stamped the fiddleheads (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Olympia Green and clear embossed them. The words "Friend", "Journal" (both from Quietfire design), and "Much Love" (Michael's Value Stamp "Kolette Hall") were stamped witht he Olympia Green and Embossed with Emerald embossing powder.

I colored a piece of paper with Pan Pastels "Magenta", rubber stamped with a spatter background stamp (All Night Media #369J) using Versafine Imperial Purple and clear embossing it, then punched out the border using a Martha Stewart "Scallop Dot" border punch. I glued that to the faux rim of the cup, crimping the edge to fit around the circular shape.

I used Dreamweaver white paste and a palette knife to apply the paste to the upper section, patting the paste to create the foamy texture. When dry I used a stencil brush and Making Memories Specialty Glaze "Sea Foam" acrylic paint and just dabbed lightly, keeping lots of white areas.

Used double sided tape to adhere the flaps to create the soda box.

For the little journal, I used the template to create an image for my pages, which I then saved as a BMP, then as an SVG file extension and cut with my Cricut from 65# white cardstock (30 cuts for a total of 60 pages). I also cut 2 from the #110 cardstock as covers which I colored with the Pan Pastels.

Rubber stamped them as above, then used my Zutter Coil binder to punch the holes and used as 1/2" black wire coil.

When the journal was put together, I held it tightly closed and with the cloth I use to apply my Pan pastels, I touched the page edges to give them the green tint.

I also rolled a piece of left over magenta colored paper into a straw shape, cut a slit in the foam and inserted the straw, also gluing it to the foam.
