Mixing Bowls and a Cookie Box
Hi everyone and Happy Spring! It is finally warming up and I am so glad. I love that flowers have started blooming and the trees are starting to turn green. I want to share four projects I created using some of Eileen Hull’s newest diecuts.
My second project I have had this idea in my head since I first seen the cookie Box die but wasn’t sure it would work. Not all the ideas that swim around in brain translate like I want at times but I am happy to say I made it happen. I turned the Cookie Box Diecut on its side to create some storage for some of my many rolls of washi tape I have. As you can see I glued two halves together by using my hot glue gun and I adhered six of the tabs to the ends/sides and cut the rest off to create the lid.
I painted the edges of the scalloped circles with Mowed Lawn Distressed Paint and covered with patterned cardstock.
I punched two small holes so I could add twine and knob as a closure for the chest.
I added paper flowers…store bought and handmade along with twine, thread, pearl sprays and the paper leaves are cut from the Holiday Greenery Diecut.
I adhered lace on the back of the chest to cover the edges of the cardstock I cut to define the base and the lid.
I glued four small spools to the bottom of the chest and adhered lace around the bottom to create a skirt.
I used the Rose, 3D Diecut (558504) along with the Holiday Greenery Diecut, a few punched flowers, tulle, thread and moss to add finishing touches to the bowl.
This little bowl I kept simply by adding a little moss, paper flowers and leaves and I finished off the outside with lace and flatback pearls.
I have you have enjoyed all of my projects I shared with you today and if you have any questions about any of them please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is awesome and enjoy creating!
