Well, it's my favorite color. And it's also the favorite color of the young lady who will be receiving this tin. It is a commission for her graduation and each member of her family is going to put a little something inside.
I used the Wisteria line from Basic Grey. LOVE this line of paper!
It's wedding season again! And here's another project for my sis. I love making these altered tins! This paper is from Creative Imaginations and I love the little birds on it. The bird on the front is an embellishment from Heidi Swapp -- it's a mirror! How cool is that? I mounted it on an acrylic circle and layered pearl flowers around it. Every edge has a detail.
I repeated the bird theme on the inside lid, with a smaller mirror bird and more pearl flowers.
My sister hired me to make 25 of these boxes for her employees who are Moms. I made 5 of each patterned paper design. They are 4 1/4" square. The box itself is cut from an Accu-Cut die using Kraft Bazzill paper. It's a neutral color so any of the patterened paper goes with it. The matching ribbon on the edge of the lid helps to keep the lid together, as well as tie in the top and the bottom. The flowers on top were also cut using an Accu-Cut die. I cut two of each size flower and folded the petals in half to add a little dimension. I then used pop dots to raise each layer up above the other.
