I've been experimenting with using papers from my stash and coming up with various projects showcasing them.
If you're anything like me, as a crafter, you have accumulated a ton of scrapbook paper.
Sure, at first, you use what you can decorating cards, boxes, etc. with your favorite patterns,
but then after a while the newest paper collection hits the shelves, and your go to paper pad goes into a drawer, where its forgotten.
It wasn't until my recent move that I realized the amount of paper I had stashed away in the storage container.
It was a lot to say at the least.
So with that in mind, I decided it was time to revisit my older paper collections.
If you checked out my blog yesterday, I featured a card using papers from this same paper pad I'm featuring today.
So without further ado, here's the pic of the box I altered using papers from the Dear Lizzy collection:
I used a 3 1/2" x 3 3/4" wooden box that I picked up at my local craft store.
I painted a thin coat of gesso on the outside, and once dry, I inked the edges using my Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin Up.
I chose ivory, pink and teal papers from the collection to cover the box, and I made sure to ink all the edges before adhering them.
Next, I fussy cut a few elements from different patterned papers in the collection and created a collage on the front.I inked the edges of each of the pieces I used and varied my adhesives to create depth and dimension.
To finish off the box, I added a Tim Holtz Trinket Brad to the front.
And ta-da!! Box complete!!
I hope you enjoyed this project for today!!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your evening and Peace!! :)
