This week I've been busy making these memory boxes as Christmas gifts. I bought the boxes from the MDF man at a show earlier this year, and after making one a month or so ago for a great niece for Christmas (still have another to make for her older sister yet, but will be putting her name on it) I thought I would make a couple more. First the boxes were treated to a cover of gesso and while they were drying I sat down and had a look a what backing papers I had on CDs that I could use to cover them. I went for this lovely backing paper from Chocolate Baroque and the Decadent Brocade CD (on sale at the moment on the CB website) For the larger box I chose the peachy colour and the smaller box the blues. For the inside I used a backing paper from the same CD in matching colours but a different design.
The backing papers where applied with Matt glue and seal, this could also be done with a gloss finish as well. The flowers and leaves are from Heartfelt Creations, the Arianna Collection, and the sentiment are from a Fiskers set based around Memories. The flowers were coloured with ink pads and a blending tool and then shaped with a ball tool, before being stuck onto the top.
Thank you for taking the time time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
