Louise provided the boxes, brushes and cement, and lead us in the project. We coated the boxes with cement and then cut and adhered the paper, sanded the edges and added embellishments.
Louise's sample had a little cardstock border on the inside to make it fit standard cards exactly. I decided to decorate the inside with paper but leave it open to use as a trinket box.
Cardstock: unknown origin
Pattern paper: "Guardian Angels" Amazing Grace Collection from Flair Designs
Embellishments: paper flowers from a glass jar in my craft room, mini pearls from the dollar store, and the ribbon is recycled/reused. I embossed the large mauve brad in the center of the large flower with embossing powder (translucent white pearls) to make it shimmer similar to the surrounding mini pearls. The metal embellishment on the front is from Stampin' Up.
Ink: Baja breeze from Stampin Up (for sponging edges of angel paper)
Adhesive: cement (paper) and glue dots (flowers and metal)
Thanks to: Louise for the idea and supplies, Julie for hosting and looking amazingly calm every time I dripped cement on your wooden table, and everyone else for your patience -- I was tired and slow that evening.
Looking forward to next time at my place! Kathryn
