Party Favor Boxes

     A year or two ago I picked up some little party favor boxes on clearance at Michael's.  I recently pulled them out to deck them out a bit with some pretty paper and glitter.  I used Penny Black paper and also Echo Park paper for the boxes.  I coated the paper with Mod Podge which makes the box feel more substantial:
     I also adhered the twine around the lid with the Mod Podge; it sets very quickly with this.  The letters were cut with my Cameo and after coating with Mod Podge,  Stickles Glitter was sprinkled on the letters.  The paper cutouts on the side of the lid tops was punched then embossed which leads me to the challenge over at Oozak Challenge Blog which is to add some texture to your project.  Any texture you desire ~ hope to see you there!  :0)

Happy July Everyone!

     Originally I was going to make a card using design paper and basic card supplies, but I can't seem to get mixed media out of my head.  So there's layers of watercolors and acrylics instead of dp.  :) I started out with a digi design by Tiddlyinks and colored the image with Copic markers    Then I decided I wanted to incorporate some twine into the scene, so I gave the flowers a whimsical center using it.

     I made the little flower centers by punching a circle, sticking a glue dot to it, then winding the twine right onto this, and the petals were made by coloring with Copics and coating them with Star Dust Stickles.

     It's a bit easier to see the glitter in this picture; sprinkled onto the paint/gel medium combination.  The lollipop is coated with Glossy Accents.  The challenge at *Oozak's Blog* is a card/project with a girlie theme.  Hope you'll join us; thanks for stopping by!
