Here are the guidelines for this week's challenge:
1.Make a box...any kind of box will work.....even an alter box (how about a box for your tags)
2. a flourish
3. a butterfly
4. Make a flower (alright...if you can't make one use one you have purchased)
Be sure to pop over and check out the Explosion Box that Selma made ... it is AMAZING & BEAUTIFUL! For my BOX ... I have chosen to make a Tissue Box Cover. I've been wanting to make one of these for awhile now and Joan's challenge was the perfect opportunity!! I have used the tutorial from SCS ... you can find it HERE.
(here's a photo of just the lid)I've used Graphic45 (Le Romantique) designer paper, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, Wild Orchid flowers and my flourishes are by Zva Creative. All of which were purchased at Joan's Gardens.
(So much prettier IRL)I have used the Classic oval & Scallop Oval from Spellbinder for the opening on the lid. I've also used the Martha Stewart 'branch' punch for the springs around the flowers.
If you've never tried one of these boxes ... NOW'S THE TIME to give it a try ... then enter Joan's challenge for a chance at a really awesome prize! You can decorate these any way you like and for ANY occasion! This one is going in my "poofy room" that is all decorated Victorian!
Weekend's almost here! Have a great one!
