Malcolm and I are off to lovely Northumberland for a few days - hopefully to photograph castles amongst other things (however the weather forecast is awful and I'm full of cold - so it will be interesting!), therefore this is a quick post to show you what I did with a Configuration box that I have had in my stash for a while. Thought it was about time I used it in a Crafty Individuals sort of a way!
I have had a problem with these as up until now I have always felt that the cubby holes were a bit on the deep side for me, so eventually I decided that I would make false bottoms for each one (at different levels) out of card, and I was happy with this format. Then to decorate I used tissue tape all over the box, softened with a thin layer of gesso. I covered the false bottoms with CI Background Papers, then added charms, flowers, buttons, glass bottle, bobbins, lace, ribbon, images from our Domino Glossy Sheet and stamped images from our Elements Stamp Plates. I used our Crackle Stamp embossed in gold on the top edges and on the flourish, and finished with more ribbon, trim, bows and flowers. I then had a 'brainwave' and used two little bobbins as the feet.
Hope you like it?!
