Stars and Stripes Patriotic Girl Box

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with an easy 4th of July project I created using the newest Taos Petal Points Collection and the Mermaid Paintbox Collection by ColorBox. I also used some art screens, a rollagraph and Eileen Hull’s Stacking Drawer Diecut to create this fun little patriotic drawer. Lets get started!

I placed White Chipboard on top of Stacking Drawer Box Diecut and placed between cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine.

I placed the Stars Art Screen on top of the “sleeve” of the Stacking Drawer Box Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Peacock Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and ink over Stars Art Screen. Once I got the area I was stenciling covered I removed the art screen.

Next I placed the Lattice Art Screen on top of the front of the drawer diecut. I inked an art dauber with Chianti Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection. I only inked the front of the “drawer” since that would be the only area seen. Once I completed that I removed the art screen.

I put the sleeve and drawer diecuts together according to directions on the diecut packaging. I cut cording long enough to tie a bow around drawer to keep closed. Next I cut s strip of blue cardstock and adhere around the center of sleeve and adhered red ric rac around blue cardstock.

I inked the Doll Faces Rollagraph with Wicked Black Pigment Dye Ink and rolled onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I selected the side view face and cut out. I saved the other images for future projects. 😊

I inked the glass tray, added water and painted the face image with the following Inks: Mermaid Paintbox Collection: Face-Papaya Cream, Lips, highlight cheeks and side of nose with Berry. Taos Petal Point: Eyes-Turtle and Hair-Amber. 

I added a blue cardstock mat to the girl image and added Foam Pop Dots to back and place on top of drawer.

I adhered a piece of red tulle behind girl image and added buttons, stars, sequin and red flat back pearls to the top of drawer.  

I also added a cancelled U.S. postage stamp to upper corner of box for some visual fun. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
