Hi everyone! This month’s theme for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team we had to create a DIY project for a party, bridal/baby shower or any type of get together. I decided to create a project that could be used for a women’s retreat/conference or as a party favor for a women’s luncheon. I created a decorative box to hold a small notebook, pen and finger nail file. The notebook and pen comes in handy for note taking.
I cut two pockets from the Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut. Since I wanted the box to be wider I used the Make it 3D Diecut and cut three sides. All of these diecuts where cut from a heavy kraft cardstock. I embossed the two pockets with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder and I lightly inked over both embossed images with a brown chalk ink.
I didn’t cut the flaps of the pocket off but adhered those over the Make it 3D sides to make the box sturdier. I glued patterned cardstock to the inside before completely putting together. Around the outer sides of the box I adhered patterned cardstock.
Next I cut four of the middle size Heart and Soul Flowers Diecuts from patterned cardstock, shaped and glued together. I added a vintage flower doily that I had found at the Country Living Fair to the center a long with a button. I cut two sprigs of leaves from the Spring Leaves Diecuts, shaped and adhered to the back of the flower.
I adhered flat-back pearls around both side of the box before adding the flower to the corner of the box.
I added a few flowers from my stash, along with pearl and tulle sprays and a cording bow to finish off the box.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
