Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the web today! The project I am posting today is a box I learned from Laura Denison at http://www.followingthepapertrail.blogspot.com/. Laura is a genius paper designer and I really enjoy her online classes. This box is based on her Romantique box. The paper is from a stack from Hobby Lobby. You can't tell in the pictures, but it is heavily foiled gold and black paper. I used two contrasting papers to create the box and lid. I made the black and gold roses on the top using a method taught by Kathy Orta at http://www.paperphenomenon.blogspot.com/ using the McGill flower molding tools and mat. The flowers were cut with the Cricut Expression using Kathy's Gypsy file. The feet, keyhole, metal corners and hitchpost are by Tim Holtz. The feet come in silver, so I inked them with gold ink from Viva Decor, then distressed them using brown and black Memento ink to make them match the other hardware on the box. The bling is some that I purchased at CHA in January, 2010. It is very sparkly IRL. I love comments, so let me know what you think. This project was difficult to photograph and the colors are much richer in person.
