BOX AS A PURSE



Well why not blog again! I have decided that since it is my first week of having a blog i would update it daily (lol) ok so maybe i am a little bit obsessed at the moment but it sure is lots of fun.
This little box purse is so cute, it has a lid that holds 3x3 little cards inside, it was so easy to make. If you click HERE it will take you to the instructions and template.
I chose the colour River Rock as my starting point, i just love the DSP Brocade background paper, and by just keeping it simple i enhanced it with using black and white.
You cant really see in the photo but the box has been stamped all over with River Rock ink, and the Spring Solitude flower stamp.
Also on the little cards i added Dazzling Diamonds to the middle of the stamped flowers, paper tolled out the bird and branch, also adding Crystal effects on the birds wing, i also had lots of fun using my cutter kit to distress the edges of the stamped image.
oh and by the way i just made the handle using a strip of cardstock and adhered it to the box using black brads on each side.

Amy, this is a lovely set. The colours are minimal yet so effective. Really beautiful. Will try this out myself I think.
Thanks for sharing.

It's too bad I never earned this hostess set - I've seen wonderful projects done with it, and this is one of them!!
