Hello folks!! Here's a little work in progress I had to share with you. I treated myself to a new face cream and the little box it came in was begging to be decorated... and I did just that!
I covered the box with grey card (all edges inked of course). I made slightly smaller panels for each face with spotty backing paper. The smallest panels on each face measures 2 x 2 inches and on these I stamped the fancy cogs from Sam Poole's Steam Punk Dreams stamp set.
You can see the embossing clearly on the photo above. I used Cosmic Shimmer Ultra thick embossing crystals - Arctic black. The little flying embellishments are also stamped from the set. I used an embossing tool to shape them in the palm of my hand.
The butterfly wings that I adhered to the side of Isabelle's photo are also from the stamp set.... it's the whole butterfly that I sliced in half.
This is the box with the lid open. I'm hoping to fill it with either little pieces of card with more photo's and hand written memories, or create some mini/accordion books. I'll see what I can do.
The flower on the lid is just one of those spiral wound flowers. I glittered it so it's nice and sparkly in the flesh. I used the main stamp from the set, cut out the large butterfly wings and tucked them in under the flower. I also used the main bodice and 'fringed' the cardstock following the lines of the bodice. I curled the fringed pieces, this way and that, before adhering. I cut a slit in the flap of the lid and threaded a loop of ribbon through. The ribbon is held in place by a large brad through the underside of the lid (I did this before adhering the flower which hid the legs of the split pin.)
Enjoy your week.
Ciao for now
