I am very excited and fortunate to have 3 projects publishing in this issue.
Today, I will share the projects here on my blog
all the step by step and materials list
is in the magazine.
My commissioned projects was to create with old jewellery boxes.
MY daughter had a couple of them, Now that she is a little older, she has finished playing with them. They still play music, when you turn the key, so I recycled them and altered them to make them new. The first one I altered it into a shabby chic, very pretty jewel box, It was originally a "Dora, the Explorer" jewel box.... I have a photo of it below, of what it originally looked like.... lots of lace, velvet flowers from "Meg's Garden" and some of the Papers from "Kaisercraft".....
The orginal box.. before its transformation.....
Next is a gentleman's gift box, decorated with stunning metal pieces and using the "Couture Creations" Diecut - Art Deco Border.....
The top view with metal and paint finishing touches. This was an box I picked up from a discount dollar store.......
And my last jewellery box was originally all quilted and painted pastel pink, and I turned it into a treasure box for a little boy..... A place to keep little shells, and bits & bobs....
I decorated and lined the inside ...
Thanks go to "Kaisercraft" for the papers "Meg's Garden" for the velvet flowers, trimmings and lace and "Couture Creations" for the diecuts. I thank these companies for allowing me to showcase their products on my blog and in the magazine.
