Another Box...This One For My Grandma!

I mentioned in my earlier post today that I was going to share the box I made for my Grandma. In addition to the box and matching card I made for my mom on Mother's Day! Grandma's are special too...lol!

I made her this box for the key charm I made her. And like me, her favorite color is purple...so you can say I had a ton of fun creating this and the charm for her!! I also went a little overboard with the Tattered Angels glimmer and Stickles!! It's so sparkly and pretty...lol!

As with the other box, I continued with the theme throughout the entire box...

A couple close ups of the beautiful flowers from "WOC" and beaded stick pins I made to match the box...

And the sentiment is my own...which I created an entire set that will be available soon!

I love the embossing folder I used on this one and the way it look with the glittery paper!

And the key charm I made for her...It's purple!!


SIZE: 3 1/4 x 31/4
STAMPS: My own digital stamp creation
PAPERS: K&Company, DCWV and Recollections
EMBELLISHMENTS: Flowers from "WOC", vintage lace, acrylic dew drops and my own handmade beaded stick pins
TOOLS: Cuttlebug machine, Cuttlebug Embossing folder, Spellbinders dies, sewing machine, distressing blade, Fiskars border punch and Martha Stewart Score Board
OTHER: Tattered Angels glimmer and Stickles
Here is a closeup of the charm...
I used Swarovski pearls, Czech glass rondelle crystals, Tibet bead caps along with a beautiful Tibet butterlfy charm all hand wire wrapped.

Hope you have enjoyed my latest creations...something different than a card for a change...lol!
