First of all, I just wanted to say that I am working on finishing the mini paper bag book that I posted the tutorial for on Wednesday. I decided to use leftovers from my Counterfeit Kit Challenge kits for the months of February, March and April. That will be posted soon, and I think it is turning out CUTE!
For todays post...I just want to start off with the fact that I love the Configurations Boxes from Tim Holtz. I used some to make this...
I collect thimbles and I ran out of room in my other thimble display case. I saw this box set and knew it would be perfect ford showcasing some of my favorite thimbles. I used K and Co. papers, with Tim Holtz tissue tape and corners. I used a 7 Gypsies door knob also.
Then, the other day I was in the local dollar store looking for a plastic platter and I found these...
And guess what my brain said!
I used the bottoms of the boxes, because they had a deeper side, stuck them together with score-tape, inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, and covered them with the same papers from K and Co. I used some Prima ribbon around the edge.
I covered the back with papers, even though no one will see it. The boxes themselves were a little flimsy, but once covered and wrapped with ribbon, they were pretty sturdy!
I had some vintage die cuts from K and Co. so I gathered up some and went to town! I used pop dots and foam tape to add dimension to some of the pieces.
I had a K and Co. metal frame that I used to frame a butterfly paper scrap. The picture was cut out of some paper, and I used dimensional glaze to go over the "frame" of the paper, then added a cardstock easel on the back to get it to stand up like a photo frame.
I was thinking of all sorts of ideas with these little jewelry boxes. I still have the tops of the boxes to do something with. What could you come up with?
