In an earlier post I wrote about a project I was working on, but couldn't show you yet. Well...... I'm done, and so very, very happy with it!
I saw the workshop for making this Vintage box on Tiets club and the box itself is designed by Jeanet.
It all started with this...... the inside of the box. All made out of cardstock covered with design paper. The papers I used for this are about 4-5 years old I think, didn't even know I had them still.... It's K&Company's line Isabella and Ashford I think. Pretty vintage paper line and perfect for the box.
Out of paper these boxes are folded.......
And then it was time to cover the outside, that was made out of cardstock too, with some chipboard on the upper and bottom side to make it extra firm. This is how it started out at first, some really lovely paper, a cotton lace glued to it, some music paper, distressed with Ranger Tattered Rose, a vintage picture from the internet, and some ribbon along the sides.
A close-up of some flowers and the key embellishment, found that at the Dollarama!!
And this is the finished boxlid! I love it!!
The bling heart I did myself, just using some very small blingbling and tacky glue!
Also the inside of the boxlid had to be decorated, and this is how it turned out! Again a vintage picture from the internet, flowers by Prima, small had and playing cards by the Dollarama, as are the brads and bling on the flowers. The buttons and piece of paper I got from friends in Holland.
And...... I put all my small vintage stuff in the small boxes, the pearl string I bought this afternoon, found a store in Port Dover that sells some vintage stuff, so...... that's sold to me! I think I can just cut some of and use them, or decorate something with a piece of the string!
