Happy different Saturday all!
Todays something different is a box (oh not again I hear you cry) however this is a box, in a box, with a paper en-john-erred project inside.
Firstly this is the outside box, very simple in White linen PMD cardstock with a ribbon and a tag made with the centre section from Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28. I have used this die throughout this project and to replicate it this is all you need (perhaps a heck of a lot of patience and some glue card craft knife etc.)!
This next picture shows what is inside the box.
This box was made as a christening card for my boss to give to some friends who are having the christening tomorrow. Normally I wouldn't post this so near the date however they don't know about my blog or work so won't see it early.
My boss asked for a Christening card with a difference as she owns a Card and Gift shop she has seen every commercial card available. This stumped me for quite a while until I noticed that the centre die from Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28 looked like the end board form a small bed or cot. hence I started by making the cot bed!
This was made with 4 die cuts and some waste pieces of the cardstock. I finished it with a blanket and pillow made from an old sheet of mine.
Once this was completed I felt I needed a nice acetate box to house it so I stared with the same die set and used four of the largest die cuts to cover a simple acetate box I made.
This was then wrapped in a congratulations ribbon and studded with stick on pearls.
This was time consuming but hopefully worthwhile. Enjoy...
