We have a new challenge beginning today at Come and Get It Challenges. Our theme is Use Our Photo Inspiration this time. I will post the photo we have for you below. The sponsor I am creating with is A Day for Daisies and I made a card with a box. No I don't mean a card and a box, the card is a part of the "lid", the box slides out. I am super happy with how it turned out but it was difficult to photograph. This image is called Wild Star Nymph.
My designer paper is from Bo Bunny. It has been in my stash for several years. It's one of those that I have been admiring every year but couldn't bring myself to cut into. The snowflake and stars are dies from Cuddlebug and Sizzix. The solid card stock is from Stampin Up. The ribbon for the pull is from my stash.
She is colored with my Graph'it markers. I used my silver glitter Shake pen on her wings, some of the stars, and in her eyes but it doesn't show well in the pics. I added Glossy Accents to her eyes.
I think it needs an eyelet on the drawer for the ribbon to run through to give it a more finished look but mine are all packed up. I will have to go buy some more, darn. My daughter's cheer team were assigned a secret sister for the next few months and I thought this would be cute to put a little treat and gift card in and leave it in her locker at school.
I was inspired by a video on YouTube but her finished project was a bit small for me. I wanted to be able to put a Starbucks gift card in the box so I changed the measurements a bit. So I will give you a link to the video that I used but I will also give you my measurements. You can find the video HERE, but my measurements were: for the card/lid I used a peice that was 4" x 12", scored at 3", 4", 7", 8", and 11". For the box it needs to be 4 7/8" x 5 7/8", scored at 1" on all sides. All the scoring measurements remained the same. I used Scor Tape for my adhesive so we can really pack in some goodies.
To join our challenge at Come and Get It you can create any kind of project you would like. Just be sure to use the photo for your inspiration. Here is the photo we have for you ...
