My son handed me two empty "Calvin Klein" boxer shorts boxes. What cool boxes, magnet closure and a protective page inside and everything. very "alterable" ... I have altered one in a Victorian country lady style. floral, nature, lace etc... and the second will be more "Zuzu'ish" (clearly thats not a word).
One of the design team themes at Calico Crafts for April/May is "floral blooms" so I am hoping this fits in. Almost everything used on the box so far, is supplied by calico crafts.
After covering the box with paper, i decorated the front using lots of vellum out of the K&Co flora and fauna cardstock and Vellum pack... Its hard to show it up properly in the photos... but it you look at the lable and flowers, you can see they are almost see-through. the bee and butterfly are also lovely vellum embellishments.... due to the amount of vellum on this, I am making this a second entry into the "Stamp Man" Challenge. (the theme being 'vellum', how appropriate)
Supplies used (other than the underpants box):
7Gypsies Conservatory papers
K&Co flora and fauna ephemera pack (with vellum)
Dresden scrap border
versamagic chalk ink. (gingerbread)
I also used my favourite gold gilt wax polish "treasure wax" and this can be found online or in some art shops.
Encore - You don't bring me flowers...
