We'd like to see patchwork, somewhere on your creation...
I went a little bigger than a card this time...
8" X 9 1/4" X1 1/2" to be exact. ;O)
An Altered Chocolate Box:
I *HAD* to save this one...
-the liner and sides are covered in textured brown paper, beautiful!
-a shiny gold cover, gorgeous!
-AND it holds closed magnetically, stays shut to if the contents aren't too heavy!
Such a waste to just toss!
The paper for my patchwork is also a rescued from the 'trash':
It's all from the main page insert from a paper kit.
I love using these on projects: They can be chopped up for Cards, ATCs, Art Journals and are poi-fect for Twinchies and Inchies. You've got perfect miniatures of several entire 12X12 pages, PLUS they all co-ordinate!
This set of 'paper' is from Fancy Pants. I even used the title for the kit on the Box.
Inked all the edges to get a spooky-grungy look...
Bling strip is MaryEngelbreit from Studio 18.
Back ground paper is Textured Mulberry Paper from Memory Stor.
All inks are Stampin' Up!
Now it's ready to be filled with some Tasty Halloween Goodies!
