Tutorial:Altered box.

First i took an empty,’crepe bandage box’,cleaned it properly(both inside and out),then i took my green pattern paper which is from Coosty Creations:Poinsettia paper pack and wrapped it all around the box..i punched out and oval shape in green card stock and used it as my stamps backing.The stamp that i used is from Lil Diva: Lil Angel and i have used Stickles glitter glue-green and yellow to cover up the edges of the stamp and have also used the yellow one to glitter the little angel’s wings.

for the lid or you can say the cap of the box,i have used a green scalloped card stock paper to cover the whole lid and then embellished it using my dark green lace which is about a half inches and glued it all over the lid.

i have embellished my box with pearls and handmade flowers and also tied a silver bell as a charm.

so friends…that it..and i hope you guys like it.

do share me with your great ideas and views!

Simple Wreath.

Standard

wreathhi friends!

today i am going to share with you this wreath that i made with scrapbook paper.its very simple and really very easy to make.My friend is shifting to her new house and i thought why not make something that she can hang around her ‘new’ house door.

Ok so lets start with the supplies used:

1.Pattern paper-from Paper mania wedding collection stack.(bought from the lulupu craft store.)

2.Crepe paper-pink color.(bought from the local craft store.)

3.Old Newspaper..

4.adhesives– Fevicol MR

5.Flowers-handmade paper rose Flowers (Handmade by me.)

6.Pearl spray(Handmade by me using small pearls and sticking them on plastic thread.)

7.ribbons-pink quarter inch ribbons.(bought from the local craft store.)

Tutorial:

i used this  technique of cutting small strips of patterned paper and rolling them with my bone folder to give a really nice curvy-flairs to the strips.so what i did was i took around 6 sheets of 12×12 inch white,silver embossed paper which is from Paper mania wedding collection paper stack.cut round 12 strips(or as many as you can get from a 12inch paper)from each of the 12x12inch paper..in about half inch and folding it in the middle with my bone-folder,i just scraped the paper from one end to the other with the bone folder..giving it a nice curvy flair as you can see in the image.people who likes to make a themed wreath like..say for Christmas or Halloween or thanksgiving can simply apply the themed paper stacks available..but for this one i used the ‘white embossed silver’ scrapbook paper and placed a bunch of my handmade roses(that is also available in my store,that you can check at http://craftyscrappers.wordpress.com/), and also added my pearl spray (handmade by me using small pearls and sticking them on plastic thread )and quarter inch  pink colored ribbons to embellish the wreath.

okay so for the base of the wreath,i took  thick cardboard,and cut out a circle(this can be whatever size of wreath you want to make!),for mine it was 8 inch in diameter.. then i took some newspaper,crumbled them together to make rolls and stuck it onto my wreath base..that way it gave a little bit of dimension to the base.(you need to make the base of the wreath dimensional just on the facing side,because the other side will be on the wall so no one’s going to see if its dimensional!!!) i also applied a coat of Fevicol(glue) to harden the base of the wreath.after the base is completely dry i took some  strips  of Crepe paper(pink) and tied it all along the base of the wreath(this way the crumbled newspapers are hidden and the crepe paper also gives a nice texture to the wreath’s base.)then,i embellished the base using the strips and other embellishments. oh one thing i forgot to mention,when applying the strips of paper you should always keep it in a cross way ie one strip should overlap the other in horizontal way.

so that’s it friends…simple and easy to make..!

i hope you guys like it,do share me your views and also let me know if you already tried this technique!
