This week’s post will be a bit different. Mary from Hill Country Quilter I had a question about the Box of Hope I mentioned in last week’s post, so here’s a mini tutorial on how to make one along with my verse of the week.
A dear friend gave me the box numerous years ago. She decorated it with yellow (my favorite color) origami paper and painted it with a clear coat. I love the little yellow handle as evidenced by the wear on it!
- your favorite Bible
- washi tape
- small stickers
- a writing instrument
- whatever paper you chose to use – I chose 3”X5” lined notecards.
- a container to hold your verses
Use the washi tape to make a border for your card, and then write the verse with its reference. I add stickers to my liking and a small row of washi tape at the bottom. Finally, I add the date on the back. If I use it on my blog, I add that date as well and then it goes propped next to the lamp on my desk until the following week.
Now, here's the verse for this week: Isaiah 43:1!
My Bella Box
Let me start off by saying that I am not compensated for any products I write about. I simply share what I love! That said, let’s move on.
My daughter is very passionate about all things Kimberbell – a sewing and machine embroidery design company. They have these marvelous boxes called “Bella Boxes” which include the supplies and instruction sheets to make several projects! All you provide is your stabilizer and thread. When my daughter showed me her Winter Box, I was sold! So when their Spring 2020 Bella Box came out, I jumped on the band wagon and purchased one!
Here is a YouTube video of the Bella Box reveal!
So, this week I’m planning to make my first project from this box! It will be the Let's Get Ready to Bumble Tea Towel! It comes with the fabric, vinyl, and buttons - eveything but the stablizer and thread! Amazing!
Hopefully, I'll have a cool finish to show you soon!
