Deborah's February Submission

This was a great challenge for me, I finally had a reason to decorate one of my Maya Road Tins. I have three of them that I use for storage in my craft room, but never felt like decorating, but this challenge inspired me to get going! I used cardstock, nesties, punches and dies from the UK. I have more pictures of my tin on my blog.

UpCycled Spool Trinket Box

Hi Dandi Crafters! I love boxes! I love to make them, alter them, buy them, put stuff in them. I love boxes! They just capture the imagination. I was very happy to hear this months challenge was to make a box. What a great challenge. I decided to use some stuff I had laying around the house and give it new life and purpose. I made this little trinket box from a used cereal box and a large spool that vinyl comes on. You can visit my DtsArtBlog for more details and more pictures including a view of the inside of the box. Thanks for joining us at Sugar Sweet Paper Treats this month.

February Design Team Challenge

Hi everyone it is my month to pick the challenge. This month the challenge is Boxes. I wanted everyone to design something with a box. The project can be anything but it must contain or be made with a box. I have a customer in my classes that really wanted a calendar for 2011, it was not my original plan to do one this year but I came up with this for both my challenge and for class. I used Paper Lace & Tags Bags Boxes and More, which if you did not have it but have a gypsy it is a free downloand with purchase right now. I can't wait to see what you come up with.


Linda's "My Funny Steampunk Valentine" Box

Hi, everyone!
Linda again! Now I'm posting my project. I made this box from scratch using chipboard and the hinge technique. I hand-dyed the lace to pick up the rose color from the papers I used, which are from the Four Seasons stack from DCWV. I threw so much stuff on this box I don't even remember what everything is or where it came from! haha I also used some of my hand-dyed seam binding instead of ribbon. Hope you like it!! (Oh, by the way, I didn't like any of the feet I had on hand, so I used some cut crystal knobs that are intended as drawer pulls. They are really sparkly IRL)

Thanks for checking it out!

Lacy's February challenge Box

Hi, everyone!
Linda here. I'm posting Lacy's project for February. Isn't this just gorgeous??? Lacy has such a talent for victorian embellishment! I love her style!! Here's what she has to say about this project:

"This box was an ordinary box from Michaels with a magnetic closure. I covered it with Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime, added some flowers, Tim Holtz metal corners, a little metal handle, fairies, and bling and it's done! I still need to put some feet on it and thought I had a set but didn't. I also plan to create a matching mini for the inside. Hope you like my altered box."

Here are the pics:

I'm glad Lacy asked me to post this for her. Isn't it just yummalicious??!! She is MUCH too modest about her enormous talent and this gives me a chance to brag on her a little!! hehe
