Since the current challenge is "Anything But a Card" here is some more inspiration for you. Some of these are using the diecuts from Creative Cuts and More. They are so easy to work with and are of great quality.
My second box is called a Peek-a-View box. It comes with a top, a bottom and an acetate sleeve for the center. I assembled the parts and put the box together. I wrapped paper lace around the top and bottom sections. I die cut 4 flourishes from glittery paper and adhered a flourish to each of the acetate sides. On the top I placed a rosette with a center to match the flourishes. It makes a great candy box, don't you think?
The second picture show the basic diecut from Creative Cuts and More. It is from that diecut I made my box.The flowers are grunge flowers I made to match the colors I was using. The leaves are silk ( can't claim those LOL) The sentiment is from Hero Arts. The sides were also sent from Creative Cuts and More, I just ran them through the embosser, then embossed with some extra thick embossing powder in spots and tinted the tiles with purple ink. The top is attached to the bottom with a brad and glue to make the pede.
This time I made a collage coaster. I'm afraid it did not scan very wel. I started with a striped piece of designer paper. Then I added a second piece of designer paper. I used some sequin waste on the background and on it I placed an image from Alpha Stamps. The greeting was from them also. The added embellishment was a piece of chipboard in the shape of a heart. On top of it is a flower highlighted with a stone.
This is the first of four coasters that I am doing for a Gingersnp Creations swap. I am also entering this in Simon Stamp and Show challenge "Stripes".
