Every Monday there is a wonderful ANYTHING BUT A CARD project for your inspiration at Bugaboo Stamps' CATCH THE BUG blog.
This week it's my turn to show you what I made ...
This little project started life as a box that my son's and my husbands asthma inhalers came in ... a fabulously shaped box that just cried out to be altered!!!
I started out by covering the box with some blue and white DP, and while I was using the brayer to smooth out the bubbles, the brayer rolled off the counter and onto my toe EOUWCH!!! I thought I had broken my toe but by this morning a lot of the pain has gone. I then sanded and inked all the edges (and my fingers, under my nails my, t-shirt, and my white track pants .... LOL!) There were so many edges there that it was quite a mission.
The front of the flap was decorated with various diecuts and gems :
On the left inside I used the Bugaboo Stamps image called Flower Pocket and coloured it as close as possible to the colours of the DP. The image is coloured using my Spectrum Noir markers from Joanna Sheen (thanks margy for ordering those for me! I LOVE them!)
and on the right inside I added some more diecuts and gems:
and now the project is just perfect to use as a thank you favour for a birthday party when you add some chocolates inside :
I hope I have inspired you to make some ANYTHING BUT A CARD projects yourself. Altering and recycling produces some really WOW results, as you can see here.
I would like to add this to the following challenges:
