I made a necklace as a gift and needed a little box for it, so I made one with the Sizzix Candy Drawer die. Since the box is cut from mat board, it is very sturdy and formed a perfect home for the necklace. First, I adhered a piece of Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections paper to a big enough strip of mat board, using multi-medium. I smeared a bit of Salty Oceans Distress Ink on my craft sheet, misted with water and dragged a piece of watercolour paper through it. When this was dry, I adhered it to another piece of mat board in the same way. Again, when the adhesive was dry, the ‘frame’ of the box was cut from the patterned paper piece, using my Big Shot, and the two drawer parts were cut from the watercolour piece.
Before assembling the box, I stamped the blue parts randomly with a swirl stamp, using Salty Ocean ink, and stamped a sentiment on each side with Archival Ink Coffee.
The flower was made with the 3D Fringed Flower die. The flower comes in three sizes on the die, and I cut two of each size (6 flowers in total) from canvas. To colour them, I smeared Distress Stain on my craft sheet (Broken China, Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap), misted the flowers with water and then dipped them into the ink. I frayed the edges a bit and dried them with my heat gun. They were layered together with a button in the centre. TFL!
