Kianel here with you today showing you a box i started at the scrap show we had in Paris this week end and for which i had the incredible opportunity to meet the "Doily Lama" himself!!!
Mike and i demonstrated the Cheery Lynn Designs dies there and i started this little box to show the possibilities of the frames and the corners. I finished it at home so here it is:
You know how i love to use dies for other purposes than what they are designed for and this time i played with my lace corners again. Do you remember this flower made out of Lace corner D?
As this one sold out after the 1st day of demonstration, i thought i would try to play with another one so i chose lace corner E this time and made a flower out of it:
I used the one which is on the top of the picture, which really is alike lace:
The base of the box is made with cardstock. I then used an XL square stackers to open 2 of the sides. To decorate those opened sides, i chose to use the french lattice small.
On the lid i decorated all the sides with the Wedding garter border.
I also decorated each side of the box with dies. On the left side, i used the exotic butterfly small #2 and the angel wings small # 2, that i placed on a fanciful flourish.
On the right side, i created the flower using one of the dies in the Lace corner D set. This flower is decorated with the Victorian Romance Flourish that i cut to size my box. I finished with a small exotic butterfly die and the small angel wings coordinated die.
The big red flower is made out of one of the dies from the lace corner E set that i cut 5 times and flipped each in 4 as an accordeon. I then glued all the centers together and added a smaller flower in the center that i made using the miniature rose die and the medium rose die.
I then added leaves from the pine branches die and the Victorian Romance Flourish to which i added two pieces of the same die in another color.
I made a tag with the Little french flair stacker and the Little silver french flair stacker and added an exotic butterfly small and the exotic butterfly small angel wings .
I also would like to share another project that i made during the show for a lady who was selling ready made boxes and asked us to decorate one of them.
I never got a chance to finish the box but this is what i made using dies from the Easter collection:
I used the little spring basket which i backed up with 3D pads to give some volume.
I inked the little rabbit and placed it there too.
I then inked a fanciful flourish that i cut into several pieces and placed in the basket.
On the front side of the box, i used the Dancing doily lace border.
I made a stencil out of the italian flourish die and inked the left side of the box using it for my background.
I also used the pine branches die that i inked with distress and one of the gorgeous exotic butterfly small #2 dies.
I would like to thank Mike and Cheery Lynn for such a great time and for those marvellous dies they design! Don't forget thta from now on, you'll find our weekly challenge on its own blog with a chance to win a 20$ shopping spree! Take care and see you in a week, love from France, Kianel.
