Hi everyone - hope your week & weekend have been good.
Time for another DT post using the stamps Julie sent me. I have been busy making boxes this week - well a little obsessed really! This origami box is really easy to make.
I cut 2 pieces A4 size from some brown wrapping paper, stamped the urban stamps tape measure image onto one of the sheets using black Archival ink. Made the box lid from this sheet.
Stamped the Pink Cat Studio masculine stamps onto some white card using the black Archival. I coloured these using watercolour pencils for the wooden parts & used gilding wax with some solvent blending solution, so that I could paint the silver parts.
I edged around the box lid with frayed burlap Distress Ink. Cut out the tools & arranged on the lid using foam pads. Stamped the sentiment from the Pink Cut Studio stamps onto brown paper using black Archival, cut around & adhered this onto some card, edged around with the frayed burlap DI. Adhered this onto the side of the lid.
Made the base of the box from the other piece of brown paper.
All it needs now is something to go inside it!
Thanks for stopping by,
