Hi everyone! I have been mostly a scrapper/cardmaker in my crafting, so I decided to branch out into the world of Home Decor items a bit more. I found a wonderfully sturdy 7″ square chipboard box and decided it would be my first “victim,” lol. I am simply amazed at how it turned out and am now hooked on them! This one is a gift for a wonderful teacher at the end of the school year.
Here are the various Close to My Heart products that helped me turn a plain box into a beautiful keepsake:
CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge Bundle
Wings B&T Duos bulk paper
Sweat Leaf, Buttercup and Vanilla Cream Cardstock
Cocoa, Olive, and Creme Brulee Exclusive Ink Pads
Color-Ready Garden Wooden Shapes
Dimensional Elements Mixed Shapes
Sparkles Blue and Green Assortment
Antique Copper Brads
Cocoa Collection Ribbon Rounds
I also used Mod Podge to seal it up and keep it in good shape for years to come.
After finishing the box, I decided to make this tag to add just the right personal touch. This project was so much fun that I am planning on making many more boxes to come. In fact, you can see my second box re-make right HERE on my blog! I highly recommend giving it a try!
