07/08/2013 - This set was a winner @ Fab 'n' Funky Challenges
Hello dear friends!
How are you today? Hope everyone is feeling fine.
As some of you may (or may not) know, I love boxes :) In this post I'm sharing a new 3D box with double sliding top I've made, based on the tutorial written by Tara, and a matching card, with a wonderful image by Mo Manning - Carolina.
The digital stamp is colored with Copic markers of the following colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20, E50
Hair: W7, W5, W3, W1
Carrots: YR18, YR04, YR02, YR000; YG67, YG45, YG23
Overall: R08, R05, R02, R000, T3
T-Shirt: YR24, YR15, YR12, YR01
I added lots of Stickles glitter on the card in general, and made some accents on the carrots. The basket is covered with Glossy Accents.
There are two tags with an embossed butterfly on them.
The inside decoration:
I wanted to say a couple of words about the tutorial. It is very precise and I had fun following it, though when the box was finished, I didn't like that the lids fall out of the box, and I thought of adding a slight enhancement to the original design.
Cut 4 pieces of card stock measuring 1" X 2". Score each of them 1/4" on the shorter sides and attach a score to these flaps. Then, adhere the hinges on the lids' back sides as shown below:
Place both of the lids so that the hinges will be located in the spaces between the bigger and the smaller boxes:
Now you are ready to glue down the upper decorative piece:
Thank you all for visiting me today!
