Hi Everyone, Today I am sharing with you a Memory Box for my DT project for Craft Consortium. My idea behind this was a young couple met each other, fell in love and gathered special memories into their keepsake box.
First of all I painted all the edges with DecoArt Crackle Paint, rubbing in some Distress Ink in Milled Lavender when dry and highlighting with some Gilding Wax. On the inside I tore a co-ordinating Decoupage Paper from the Bloom Beautiful range and added it onto the base of my box and to the inside.
Next I measured all the sides of my box and cut out my paper choice from the Bloom Beautiful Pad. I tattered at the edges with scissors and stitched with 2 co-ordinating colours of thread in a shabby style, gluing them all in place onto my box.
The top of my box I fussy cut out birds from the pad and die cut out my Lacey frame adding on a stamped sentiment. Finishing off with a couple of metal embellishments, pearls and flowers.
On the inside I painted a couple of frames with Crackle Paint highlighting with Gold Gilding wax.
Adding a couple of fussy cut birds onto the frames, mounting my vintage photos into them.
The inside edges of my box were painted with Gesso and sanded back, stamping on some crackles with Archival ink for a shabby feel.
My sentiment was also fussy cut from the Bloom Beautiful Paper pad. I added a little stamping around the perimeter and tattered the edges mounting onto a die cut.
My ticket was stamped and fussy cut out adding a variety of die cuts for interest.
Finishing off my box with some metal feet, a Cameo at the opening and an MDF Memories word which I heat Embossed with Silver powder.
