Kleenex Box Play

The Kleenex- box- inspired -15 minutes -of -play- blocks are finished. Now I'm trying to decide on a layout and background colors.  I found a very dark purple that seems kind of fun....either that or white. I can't decide.
Any thoughts?

Wonderful blocks! I don't know if I like the light or dark background better. You might try using the dark to create "shadows" on the bottom and right sides, then the white for sashing. That would really create dimension. These are really great.

wonderful! black will make it dramatic, white will go more towards playful. either will be great.

Love your blocks! Had a giggle with the kleenex box inspiration as I have a couple of pieces of other designs from kleenex boxes as future inspiration ideas. I agree with Tonya, the dark makes it dramatic and the white more playful. I can't decide which one I like better!

Might I suggest using a shot cotton for the backgrounds? Light or dark, they give an added sparkle! You can't go wrong with either, though. Love your inspiration. Hmmm, wonder if the Kleenex box graphic designer got his/her inspiration from a quilter?

I love the white as the background. But then the dark is really good too......ohhhh! I can't decide.

What about the white on the outside and the dark down the middle?????? That would be out to the kleenex box! LOL.

I like the dark purple. How about several shades of dark purple mixed around in an improvisational way? I've gazed at that Kleenex box too. Haha.
