Hello and welcome to my scrapbokking blog.
Today my post is not a layout but an 'Altered Anything' to join in with the new challenge starting today over at Stamping with the Dragon . My altered DT project of choice is a circular box. Stamping Dragon Designs as usual are providing the prize for the winner.
The prize for the winner is a £5 voucher to the
I've had the box since last Christmas and couldn't decide what to do with it and this DT project gave me a chance to decorate the box with some christmassy style stuff I had to hand.
I have chosen to use the Striped Patterned paper from Stamping Dragon Designs Pastel Swirls digital kit. Lots of bright colours, the paper has a Toy Box feel to it.
I covered the base of the box with the paper and added a band of fine ribbon with a white flourish design and gold edging. I then added a strip of orange RickRack to the bottem of the base and a row of die cut flower shapes to pick up the orange stripe in the paper.
I then covered the lid of the box with the same paper and adhered another strip of orange Rick Rack to the outside of the rim. I die-cut a punched scalloped circle from piece of blue Core-dinations paper to place in the middle of the box lid. Using a Sizzix 'Flowers with Flourish Stems' strip die I cut a selection of flourishes in paper colours to compliment the chosen paper. I've made some ribbon roses in wired green organza ribbon and hot-glued them in a cluster to the centre of the lid.
I added some pearls to the centre of the roses to add detail. I also hot-glued buttons in various colours to the lid adding crystals and pearls to the centre of each button.. The lid was finished with a bow made from the same ribbon that wraps the box base.
This is a departure from what I would usually post on my 'Scrapbooking Blog' but I had fun with this project and I hope you do to when you take part in our challenge.
