photo box with Longing Tilda from magnolia

good afternoon!!! well the weather here in QLD is wet and wild....flash flooding once again- to think a week ago we were dry as a chip! those poor people in Brisbane who got flooded out last year are getting hit again :0( I guess that means I am stuck here at home, child free and lots of time to craft yeehaa!!!! so, onto my creation for today....I should never have started with chipboard, because now I cant stop!!!!! this is a chipboard picture box I made....the lid holds it all together, then when it is removed it opens up. the beautiful paper is from little yellow bicycle, but I have cut off the name of it :0( The other paper is a kaisercraft page called "potion". I have added some rhinestone bling inside from kaisercraft. The white exterior is embossed with one of my new folders from couture creations called "Walrus & Carpenter". The adorable image is magnolia's "Longing Tilda". I have added white spots to her dress with my white signo pen and her hair has a little sparkle courtesy of my gelly roll pen colour clear star. coloured with prismas.

Thanks for stopping by...praying this rain does not cause the heartache it did last year

valentines gift box ....plus box instructions

Good evening, hope you are all well. I have another box tonight, this time using the gorgeous image called "buzz in the air" from Penny Black. A simple red and black theme for birthday or valentines day. The sentiment is one of my favourites as it is so versatile from Imaginations!. The large flower I have made from the tattered florals Tim Holtz die, and the cute little hip rose buds are from wild orchid crafts. The larger rose is a kaiser flower (from memory???). The hats pins are my own creations and the little heart charm I got from ebay. A little tip: buy cheap chains from kids jewellery for the chain- much cheaper than by the metre at craft stores....you can even get them cheap with little trinkets on them that you can use on your cards! The black and white paper is more like material that I got from a closing down sale of one of our local scrapbooking shop.... a snapped up all that was available- for 20c a 12" sheet- who wouldn't!!!!!Ribbon is from Craft Queen. As usual, stickles, glamour dust and dimension magic is also used :0) I make all my boxes my self....this one here is from an A4 peice of 1.8mm chipboard from ebay. I etch 3cm in from each edge, cut out the corners and stick together with framing tape. The lid is done exactly the same way, only you need to etch 2.5cm in from each edge so the lid fits over the base.
Thanks for stopping by stay safe XOX Tania

I am entering this box into the following challenges:
Dream Valley Challenge using animals (hedgehog)
Penny Black Challenge using crafty bargains (chain, heart charm, paper)
The sweet stop sketches challenge: non-traditional valentines
Cupcake craft challenge: all you need is love

Take care XOX Tania
