It was just a box, now its special, (long post)

 

My project that took me most of today started of like this

it is a A4 size box.

11th June 09 004

I then printed of this digi image from my new cd set

Lavender and Paper Lace.

onto purple paper, then coloured in purples,

apart from her hair which was meant to be blonde but

because of the purple paper came out a bit bright,

but then again she is a fairy so it can be like that,

11th June 09 005

The dress and hat is coloured with a metallic purple sakura pen,

I cut her out and layered her up on a second image,

that I printed in a purple frame,

11th June 09 009

I printed these butterfly’s and cut them out,

then used silicone to make them stand up, added antennae

with a purple sakura pen, and purple gems to the body.

The inside of the box is decorated as well.

11th June 09 006

The lid was layered with purple card

and lavender and lace backing paper.

11th June 09 007

The end result is this lovely box to use

for a lovely gift.
