Had some time to play in my craft room lately and made up another baby memory box for my upcoming craft fair.
The Tuesday challenge over at Flourishes this week is to use 'paper piecing' and that worked out perfectly.
The main image on the front of the box was mostly colored with copics and the onesie and tiny socks are both paper pieced. The stamp is one from Flourishes of course!!!
I started with a bare wooden box and covered it in matching papers and then decorated it with 3 different ribbons, the main image and then down in the bottom right corner is another onesie and booties (Flourishes also) that I paper pieced also - sort of, since I didn't piece them onto a stamped image just stamped onto DP and cut out.
I used some liquid pearls from Viva Décor to accent the main image.
Inside the box - I lined the bottom with brown patterned felt and the top inside lid with mnatching papers.
The 6 by 6 inches memory book is made to match (using matching papers and ribbons and I even made a card too in case someone wants to give it as a gift.)
All for today - be sure and check out the challenge over at Flourishes - www.flourishes.org/blog/
