I taught my little class today and we made paper covered boxes so thought I would show you the sample I made. We often throw away really sturdy boxes that can be transformed with a paper makeover ! I saved this one; it had contained some champagne truffles ( !!!! ) and was already quite pretty so I did not cover it completely.
A nice light photo for a change; we had lovely sunshine here in Worcestershire today ! The box was already pale pink with some subtle gold edging so I worked with that and used Beau Chateau DSP to cover and decorate the top and base. I have vintaged everything as always as I think that suits this DSP and added some self adhesive lace ribbon from my stash to edge the side of the box.
I have enjoyed using this DSP, I suppose it suits my style and that's a very difficult thing to get away from ! I feel that I work better in my comfort zone and produce my most satisfying work then ! This is quite a simplified design as the box is quite small but it would be nice to go to town on a larger item !
I am off to a SU training day on Saturday ( my first ) so that should be interesting. Swaps are all done and just need to finish off my name badge !!!
I really appreciate you stopping by my little blog today ! Happy crafting !
