It's weekend again.. yaaaaaayyyy!!! We've no real plans these upcoming days so I hope to have some ME-time again... YAY!!!
The Buzz and Bloom DT has been challenged to do something with our 2009 resolutions... I always set up resolutions in the beginning of the year.. but somehow I never manage to do anything with them... This year I decided that my only goal would be to take better care of my handmade cards (easy huh?..hehe). I used to pile them up in my drawer.. so they were getting dusty and they were easily damaged...
Sooo.. I came up with an idea to create a box especially for my cards... (This box also would be such a fun gift for someone.. so I might end up giving it away.. hehe..) I started with a blank cardstock box which I've covered with all kinds of patterned paper.
Here's a closer look, you can see that I've used the negative pieces of the CB Lava Lamp Chipboard shapes which I've painted white with acrylic paint, then I've covered the pieces with glitter and I added a little jewel to each of the pieces as well.
I've started decorating the top of the box with a CB Lava Lamp chipboard shape which I've painted white with acrylic paint.Then I've covered the whole shape with white glitter. The next step was adding some paper flowers with the hearts of the MIR Love & Kisses: XOX on top of it.
I've used the CB ABC: Urban Alphabet for the title on the box. The chipboard letters are painted black with acrylic paint and then covered with diamond glaze to give it a shiny look.
With this box I'm sure I'll take better care of my handmade cards, and it will definitely be a fun present to give away sometimes... (be sure to check out what the other DT girlies came up with on the Buzz and Bloom BLOG)
Thanks for stopping by.. and don't forget to come back on Sunday to see my newest layout for the wijDUS blog!!! (BTW.. you still have time to play along with our latest challenge!)
