Little mini book and box






Weather is absolutely horrible today, winds and rain, so what else to do than make a little project. :) Here I have decorated a little box and mini book by 7 Gypsies. I have used yummy Basic Grey christmas papers and distressed all the edges and embellishments with ink and the flowers are punched out with EK Success punches, I scrunched these up to make them look distressed. I used some mini white glass beads for the centre of the flowers and attached them with some aqua glitter glue. The bling is from Poundland. The ribbons are from Bee Crafty in Elgin. The red letters and "family tradition"sentiment are stickers from Bo Bunny. Made some paper beads for the front of the mini book and attached them to some craft wire. For the house at the back of the book I used a template from a Polka Doodles christmas magazine pack. The snowy roof I drew and coloured with pro markers and used a little bit of forest green ink to make it match. Also punched out a little circle with cuttle bug die cut and embossed it with a little snow scene and inked that up. The pins I also purchased in Bee Crafty. Had lots of fun making this and I just couldn't wait till christmas to give this to my future in laws so I did it today. And they liked it, which is the important bit. So very pleased. Thank you for looking. Have a good week.
