Hi friends one of my crafty resolutions for this year is to make home decor projects and crafty projects which can be put to use! This swinging box is part of a stationary set I made to keep in my craft room. I hope you like it!
I am in love with the roses from the Winnie and Walter In Bloom Elsa's Flora Stamp Set
and heat embossed water colored and fussy cut several rose images to create the 3 D decoupaged
multilayered rose!Here is the tutorial to make a 3 D Stamped Rose : 3 D Decoupage tutorial
|3 D Decoupaged rose|
Added water colored heat embossed leaves and some punched leaves [ tutorial for these easy leaves : How to Jazz up your Leaves
] and sprays of pearl to create a simple floral arrangement.
|Heat embossed roses and leaves|
I took inspiration from Taheerah's image Challenge at Winnie and Walter to add floral elements in pink, gold accents, a tinge of green and cream and the geometric elements on the floor interpreted as the design of the box!
|Golden Heat embossed Butterfly|
The box has 2 halves with swing apart and has water colored butterflies on each half.
|Butterflies and Roses|
Stamped leaves partially "over the edges"
in dark mossy green to match the colors on the pretty pattern paper [ from Indian company Papericious
- they have the most beautiful floral papers!]
On opening, the box has 2 tiers to hold little knick knacks. Lined the little shelves with the same pattern paper and added glitter paper strips to coordinate the inside of the box with the outside
|2 Tier Box|
I love these swinging type of boxes. Though this one is a box I altered you can actually make one from scratch too. Here is a tutorial to make a Swinging Multifold Box : Folding Box tutorial
The shelves fit perfectly together on closing in a diamond shaped box!
I hope you liked my altered box.
