Dragonfly Photo Box

Hi everyone! I am back today with a Photo Box I created using Eileen Hull’s Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut and embossing powders by ColorBox. I started by cutting two Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut from Matboard using a Diecut Machine

I cut one of the flaps off of each diecut and placed one of the diecuts in the Floral Frame Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I put the box together according to directions on the Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut packaging.
I used a hot glue gun to adhere the two diecuts together to create a box and I cut to fit three pieces of cardstock and adhere to the sides of the box. 

I adhered lace and flat back pearls to the bottom of the box. 

Next I cut two flowers from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and punch leaves from the mini leaf punch and shape and adhere to the bottom of the box and add a flat back pearl to the center of the flower.

I used two dragonfly diecuts from my own personal stash and ink completely with Aquamarine Chalk Ink

After the ink dried I inked both with Top Box Clear Embossing Ink and added Copper Embossing Powder randomly on both dragonfly diecuts. 

I set the embossing powder with a Heat Tool and applied more Top Box Clear Embossing Ink and complete the same steps with the Gold Sparkle and Opalescent Clear Embossing Powders until desired effect is achieved.

I added adhesive to the center of one of the dragonfly diecuts and glue on top of the other dragonfly diecut. 

I bent the wings up on the dragonfly, adhere to the top of the photo box and add a flatback pearl to finish off the box.

This would be a perfect gift to hold wedding photos, graduate or personal photos in. Also below is links to most of the tools and supplies I used if you want to recreate this project for yourself. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
