March.. The summer starts... Mercury starts to hit its peak and more time indoors! More time indoors means more I see my craft stock... my tools... Start IDEATION and here comes a box made out of scrap. Yes, the base materiel for this box is a sweet box lid.. Only this was spared after we feasted on the Kaju Kathli !!!
I measured the Sweet box lid and cut 2 chipboards one inch bigger than it for the base and the top flap. and 1 chipboard for the spine.
Chose any card stock and stick the chipboards : Flap , then spine , then base : in this sequence on it.
While Sticking the base be careful to leave a small space at both end , so that you can bend it for the flap to move around .
Once this is done .. we can use any pattern paper of choice and cover it again . I choose Vintage collections.
Cover the Box too with PP of your choice .. Stick it on the chip board meant for the base.
Viola .. The Box with Flap lid is ready ..
Now comes the decoration part ..
The Spine was first covered with DCWV PP : " Memories never Melt " I love those words ..
On it I placed Red Mesh cloth . Added a bead string on it ..
Its a white crochet lace that I converted into the Red flower base ..
I have converted the Bottle Cap into an embellishment .. I gave a dash of Alcohol ink to the Cap. I loved he way it came out .. Just added a zing to the Box..
The Butterfly was cut from Burlap .. Coloured it blue ..
The Spine bind has a beautiful Green Ribbon Bow I made ...
