Box Blog Hop!
The past 2 weeks Designers were to use their creative muse to dress up the Rectangular Box. It never amazes me at how one little box can stir up such creativity, but just check out the blogs below for the eye candy that awaits you! This little box can be used for party favors, little hide-a-ways, or simply slip a couple of pieces of chocolate in it & give to a friend for a little "lift". Always works for me!! The measurements are approx. 3.75" wide by 1.75" high by 1.875" deep.
For this project, I used a paper design from one of our very own designers: Jen Goode. I wrapped the entire box, folded sides in & glued. 3 black brads holds the top section on from the backside. Black baroque trim (RockCandy Studios) was added along the front lid & around the bottom of the box. Wood feet gives this little box some BIG box height! Those who know me well, know I am a CPL Locksmith in the state of TN so my use of keys is wide spread. So don't cha just know I had to use the new Tim Holtz die cut key & key hole (out of grunge board) along with his Tattered Flowers die. A few little antique jewel case keys to top it off.
If you enjoyed looking at all the eye candy from all the designers, leave a comment here or on Eileen's Blog so you are eligible for a random drawing for a Scoreboards die!
Be sure to check back May 12 when we will be creating little 3 D cakes! Sure to leave you hankering for something sweet!
This is Sammy during my creative spurts at 4:30 a.m. He's none too happy with me as you can plainly see. I was in the living room working on 2 projects (other locations have other projects in stages of completion) when I picked up the camera & shot this of Sammy this morning. As you have noticed......he KNOWS how to use a pillow correctly! haha
