Today at Crafts 4 Eternity we have a lilac, green and grey colour challenge. I will leave the challenge police to decide whether my green is green, bluey green or blue as I was going boss-eyed thinking about it!
I haven't made a box for ages, so I decided to make a box for this one.
Here is the top.
I've used my Nesties ~ Grand labels die to make the top and base of the box. The wooden birdcage is from the Pink Paislee ~ Butterfly Collection. I've embossed it and inked it and smeared paint on it until it ended up looking like this. The flowers have had a good spritzing of glimmer mist, so they do sparkle, but that is not showing up in these photos.
Here is the right hand side.
I have used Melissa Frances ~ 5th Avenue papers throughout.
The back of the box.
I've also used strips of Tim Holtz ~ Tissue Tape in places.
This is the left hand side of the box.
I have used a Tim Holtz ~ Corked Vial removed the cork and filled it with flowers. I glued them in to stop them falling out, added some gems and a little crochet doily.
To make the drawers, I used my Sizzix ~ Matchbox die.
Here is the first drawer.
The second drawer.
And the third drawer.
Here are all the drawers together.
I am going to pop this in at the following challenges:
- Wrap it up ~ Crazy 4 Challenges
- Rectangle ~ Paper Sundaes
- C for crochet flowers ~ ABC Challenge
- Punches & Dies ~ Dutch Dare
- Bingo recipe: brads (on the drawers), flowers, buttons ~ Truly Scrumptious
