Hope everyone is having a great morning. The new products everyone is reporting on from CHA are very exciting. I know I can't wait to get my hands on quite a few. Thank you all for posting the new goodies...
Ok, Back to the box. The Finishing touches...
Just as the bottom of the box I cut my patterned paper 1/8-inch narrower to show the painted black border. I just measured, cut and matted.
Next, I added a little Tim Holtz keyplate and hitch post to the front of the box.
I cut a 1 1/2-inch piece of card stock and used a Martha Stewart border punch to make a hinge for the back side of the box. I scored it down the middle and used 1/8-inch Scor-Tape on each side of the score line.
I then applied the hinge piece to the back of the box. Starting with just one side first and then moving to the other side to finish it off.
I then cut all my flower pieces from the Monster cans. See my post under Monster Flowers. I hot glued these to the top.
Now, I used the Tim Holtz Lock and Key die and cut out a lock from chip and another from the aluminum can.
I layered the metal piece on top of the chipboard piece and glued with Glossy Accents.
Ink the lock with a little Ginger and Raisin alcohol ink.
Tie a bow around your notecards and envelopes. I designed this to fit A6 cards and envelopes.
Place the cards into the box and you are done!!!
Thanks for following this project!
Have an excellent day!
