Stencils & more!

This amazing keepsake box with delicate accents and beautiful attention to detail will have you running to your craft room to get started on creating your very own!

Book-style Keepsake Box by Gabrielle Pollacco

Hi BoBunny fans, Gabrielle here with you today to share my latest project using some beautiful new products from BoBunny!  I just LOVE the new stickable stencils, it's so cool the way they keep the stencil in place as you are working and allows you to move and re-adjust, all the while keeping that tacky backing so that your designs always come out perfect!

I thought you might enjoy watching a step by step tutorial in which I show, start to finish how I created this little keepsake book/box using the gorgeous new Madeleine collection with some of the new BoBunny mixed media products (Pearlescents and Glimmer Sprays) and stencils.  Just click the arrow above and enjoy!

I thought I would share a few close-up shots of the project that you can enjoy at your leisure.  The photo above lets you see how I used the stencils and texture paste on the cover and spine of the book.  I used the Gold Glimmer Spray to help the texture design stand out.

I like my projects to look pretty inside and out, so I lined my box with some of the beautiful papers from the Madeleine collection (and added a butterfly cut out from Primrose collection).

Another new product that I absolutely LOVE is the Wood Shapes! For my box cover I used a few of the elegant designs from the new Iron Works Wood Shapes packet.  I finished the look with some of the lovely pearls from the jewel packets.
