Graphic 45 and May Arts have come together once again for an amazing week of blog hopping goodness! Today is the first day of the hop, and MAN, are you guys going to love this stuff! Be sure to visit the May Arts blog each day this week for the links for that day AND chances to win great prizes!
I got to use the fabulous Old Curiosity Shop Collection from Graphic 45. I paired it with the fabulous Black Sheer/Nylon Edge ribbon and beautiful crochet lace from May Arts! The rest of my supplies were mostly bits and pieces from around my studio!
I began by first layering the Grapic 45 papers inside the Tim Holtz boxes.
The next step was to add the Graphic 45 stickers in a few of the boxes. I brushed the back with cornstarch and adhered them with foam tape for dimension. I love that the postage stickers have stamps for places in Massachusetts! WAY FUN BONUS!!!!
I then added bits of lace inside a few of the boxes and adhered chipboard pieces around the outside of the box.
I wrapped the sheer ribbon around the box entirely and secured with tape. I then added a layered bow with a chipboard accent (tied on with May Arts Burlap String) to the top of the box.
Finally, it is time to fill the box with trinkets and goodies! This is the best part! My spiderwebs, Glass bottle and the Charlotte doll head are from Retro Cafe Art Gallery. The metal clothespin is Graphic 45, and the other bits and bobs are pretty much random things I found around my studio. Yup. I officially have weird stuff. I sculpted that little monster head toward the bottom ages ago and never added it to a doll, so I figured he was just about perfect for this project!
I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial! Don't forget to check out the other great Graphic 45 and May Arts posts today!
I'll be back later today with my Gallery Idol Round 4 Card! I can't WAIT to share it with all of you!
