For my project this week I was able to use a brand new design from Stitchy called Little Friends. I wanted to make something a bit different and decided it would be a great design to use to make a box to hold a small gift or trinkets.
I drew around my largest Nestabilities frame and cut around this leaving a border to make the box slightly bigger. I had printed out 2 copies of the digi so I could decoupage the heads on the Wolf, Rabbit and Mouse to add more dimension. I coloured them in with Promarkers and took great care to add shading. I did toy with the idea of adding some embellishments but felt it would have detracted from the image so left it alone (unusual for me!)
Using the top section I layered this onto a strong card for the lid and made a base the same size. I then used my scoring board to make a box which was 1" thick and stuck the top and bottom onto the Nestie die cuts. I added a piece of a dark gold textured ribbon to this section to add some decoration and provide a bit of relief from all the white!
On the inside I used a free Word art sentiment from Elegant Wordart by Bethany. I felt it was particularly appropriate for our little bunch of animals that have made their own family. I intend to give this box with a gift to a very good friend of ours who is also not a relative, but family that I have chosen for myself.
I really enjoyed visiting the blogs last week and seeing the most gorgeous of creations. I hope you will join in with our challenge this week and look forward to passing on some love.
In the meantime, it is Mother's Day today in the UK and I wish all the Mother's out there a fabulous day. My Mother in Law loved her Rub A Dub Dub card which was my DT sample from last week :)
