Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here and today I made a small tutorial for all of you.
This is Technique day here on BoBunny blog and I am going to show you simple paper crafting technique and simple embellishment techniques, all in one single project.
So here is my book shaped hand made box here made with new delicious Felicity collection:
First I will show you how you can make the whole box and then we will talk about embellishing it.
Step 1:Measure and cut three chipboard pieces as shown on the photo.
Connect them with binding tape or whatever glue tape that you use.
Step 2: Cover the chipboard with Felicity Splendor cardstock using the Wooden side as your cover cardstock. Use double sided glue tape or any other glue to make the cover.
Step 4:Cover the inside of the cover with Felicity cardstock as shown (no photo of this step) and then glue a nice piece of Felicity Vellum on the right inside and add strips of glue tape as shown.
Arrange the " box" with your folded paper strips and secure with another top piece of double sided glue tape.
Step 7: Glue the inked blue cardstock cuts to make the frame over the folded paper frame as shown.
Make a sticker tag with cardstock sticker over Splendor cardstock background side and tie the cord. Glue the tag inside the box.
Step 8: Build the left inside cluster with stickers, Noteworthy pieces and paint the edges in the very similar way as we did for the frame edges.
Step 9: Use Flower Power stickable stencil with Pentart Creamy acrylic Rose paint and make a basic embellishment rectangle for the cover.
There is no photo of this step, but my tip is to use a make up sponge with this creamy paint for the best results.
You can see the result on the bottom of the front cover as most of the piece is not seen after all.
Glue the die cut strip from Noteworthy vertically, cover with stencilled rectangle. Hand cut three clocks from Serendipity cardstock and arrange them on the top as shown.
Add one Layered chipboard clock on the top. Paint a few die cut leaves with Olive Pernart acrylic and when dry add a few strokes of Rose paint over them. Paint a couple of die cut flowers with Rose Metallic acrylic and arrange the flower cluster.
Paint the die cut leaves with Olive acrylic. Let them dry and then shrink them with your heat gun.
The best part of using Penart acrylic on shrink plastic is those small bubbles that you can see on those small leaves on the cover.
And this is a close- up to the leaves on the cover- the small ones with the bubbles- and the painted die cut cardstock pieces.
Step 11: Add the lower title sticker, some jewel swirls and top sticker tab. Add two flag stickers on the spine and embellish with more rhinestones.
Enjoy your self made box and use it for a gift or just for your keepsakes.
And here is the inside of the project again, both sides together:
And now lets see the finished project on the shelf in all its glory and to show my love to this wonderful collection I glued this collection name on the top tab of the external cover.
