It is my friend’s birthday in a few days time, the cards have been completed & her present has been wrapped but i wanted to decorate a box to house her cards.
Aintree Craft Show were throwing these boxes away, asked could i have a couple to decorate and the lady said great better than throwing them away. Looks like they housed Martha Stewart punches.
I have been playing with the new Tim Holtz Alterations Bigz Dies earlier this week and made a loo roll card with an ornate top.
Above are the pages before binding them together with gold ribbon. The bits that were left over after taking the loo roll inner through the Big Shot have made the hinges for the Card box. Painted them black to accentuate the card box colours as below.
Next thing to do was to add three tags reflecting the theme used for the loo roll card which is birds. Used Paper Artsy images from the Hot Pick plates 1004 and 1005 to create the tags. Used mica sprays to create the background paper before overstamping and cutting the images out.
Off to play with more of my craft stash. Thanks for stopping by :-)
