Configuration Box

Hello to November!

It’s been so so long since I have last posted! Orders and studies have been keeping me busy. There are so many projects to be posted!!! I wish there were a bit more than 24 hours a day. Sigh! 

Anyway, I did this Configuration Box which is by Tim Holtz recently. This was my first time doing it and I had fun making it. Lets get into the details!

First of all, I painted the edges from inside out by Distress Paint ‘Black Soot’. Now for the front I covered it with DCWV ‘Old World Stack’ paper. It was more like a brighter blue but I distressed with grey shade (forgot the color name!) and edges by Black Soot. Stamps are by Stampers Anonymous and flowers used in here are mixed few by Recollection, Prima and others are from a local store. For butterflies, I have used a Sizzix die and later distressed them in various colors. 

I love the word art stamp! It went well with the theme. 

Forgot to mention earlier, banner is a die-cut by Sizzix. 

Box sides are covered by using a different paper from the same DCWV pad. Edges are distressed in Black Soot. 

Now comes the inside part! Left side has been covered with the distress paper and then a personalized note is added on it. Why waste the space? When we have got plenty!

On the right, a lot of emblishments have been used as you can see. Metal, florals, die-cuts .. Literally everything! 

That cute mini envelope is a Bigz die by Sizzix which has note in it. Metal embellishments are just random ones which them from a local store. && for that mini jar I just added some silver glitter and added a stamped name tag and glued the cork.

Laces have been distress painted and the top and the bottom lace is a black card stock which have punched by Martha Stewart edge punch. 

That is it! It took about 2 days to complete this project as I am a impatient crafter. Haha! Hope you like it!
