Black, White and Red all over

That's always been one of my favorite jokes! And you can have so many answers to it, but for some reason, I always think of Clifford the Big Red Dog! My mom must've had a big influence on me...it was the 1st grade teacher in her!

I got an order for two boxes, four magnets in each and they needed to have C's on them for my friend's mom and mother-in-law. I based these completely around paper I found on sale at Jo-Ann's. Fun black and white prints. And what goes better with black and white than red?

I cut out the templates and then stamped Polka Dot Basics in True Black on each using two different sizes. I decided if the magnets had C's, I needed to tie that in to the box, so I stamped the 94pt Curlz font on a piece of Stamper's Select White and punched it out with a 1.75" circle punch. I adhered it to a 2" scalloped punch of True Black and then to the box. The ribbon handle is True Black Saddle Stitch attached with some silver brads I had on hand.

Aren't these fun? All the patterned paper is from DCWV. I used the Curlz font from JustRite on the far right and the small c is from Hero Arts, which looks like the larger C. I did a piece of Pure Poppy for the splash of red.
