I'm going to try again

I am only a month late, but this is one of my New Years blog!!!!. This morning I downloaded the blogger app (thanks Rachel Brown for mentioning it on Facebook), so there is no excuse.

I thought I would share a box I was asked to make for a new baby.
The box is paper mâché, and then painted in one coat emulsion, edges are of the box lid and base are distressed in spun sugar, and then I Matt and layer the lid and sides using card and paper form my crafty stash. On this box I have also used spun sugar to distress the paper. I have added ribbon around the edge of the lid, and to cover the join I put a heart charm on
The Popcorn image I have coloured using Copics and Spectrum Noirs and then cut it out with a spellbinder grand decorative oval, and layered this. I have cut the bunting freehand and added her name and date of birth. In the corners I have added cosmic shimmer pearl glue.
You cannot see it from my poor picture, but on one side of the box (using the clarity letterbox) it says "keepsake box" and on the opposite side it says "special memories". I have then added card candy to each corner of the side.

I hope you like it and I will be back soon.

Have a good weekend xx

  2. Welcome Back to the land of Blog!!! (and about time too!!)
    What a fabulous project to come back on though. Is there any wonder that they call you the "Box Queen". This is such a gorgeous design and the stamp is perfect for this. Keep up the blogging! Bye for now Jo x
