It's the last Sunday of the month and that means it is time for the Rose's Challenge. This month Kerrie Rose has challenged us to make anything but a card. I am not the best at 3D items, but I gave it a shot.
I remember seeing storage cubes created with chipboard coasters, and thought this might be useful for storage on my stamp table. I took inspiration from one of my very favorite paper collections from K&Co. It is called Maison, and is from Brenda Walton. It has that Shabby Chic/ French look. I have hoarded all of the paper and elements for years.
I started with 5, 5 inch chipboard squares (4 sides and the bottom). I pierced holes so that the parts could be laced into shape with twine on the bottoms. To hold the top in shape, I used tape and then covered the inside and outside with coordinating DP. I took strips of the inside paper and created a lacy border with an MS border punch. All of the seams and chipboard edges were then coated with Fiber Scrap, Walnut Ink Tintz in a Tea Stain color. The embellishments were also Maison, and they are all Grand Adhesions.
I thought this to be a useful project, and I can't wait to see what the rest of our lovely Rose's have created for us. Please be sure to visit our bouquet...... Olga, Sue, Kym, Betty, Kerrie, Connie, and Patti. They are sure to give great inspiration! Sorry Connie and Patti, Blogger will not let me link the two of you. Their blogs can be found on my sidebar.
Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you a wonderful Sunday!
