Nat and Dans wedding gift

Its been along time since i blogged so i thought i would show you what i have been up to. I recently attended a work colleague's wedding reception and as you can see from the post below i made her a card. So i thought i would make her a keepsake box,a brag book and a envelope to put photos in. I found a kraft box from paperchase and decided that i would paint it with paperartsy fresco paint (not that you can see much of that from the photo). This is one of the best paints on the market, it has a chalky finish making it great for a shabby chic look. I then covered the box in MME patterened paper used the T/H book plate to make an emblishment containing the date and the left over oval is used on the handle. Then made aflower with T/H tattered floral die and some smaller punched flowers around the large flower. Tags, buttons, a pin, ribbon, rub-ons and bling. The wedding couple is a stamp i have had for a long time that i use timeand time agian on wedding cards. I then coated the top of the box in modge podge, which in fact sealed the glitter on the paper.

Here is a pic of the cover of the brag book and an envelope decorated and this contains photos i didn't use in the book. The large butterfly is a sizzix die

This is one of the pages. It concertinas out and make a total of ten pages to decorate. Again i used MME paper, and some stickers and stamps.

On the first page i have made some roses out of a martha stewart flower punch and a circle punch. You cut the circle to make an open wheel and roll it up to make a rose. I have also used tags and stiched each of the pages

Then the final pages i turned my images in to black and white. Used papertrey ink die to cut the butterflies. Added rub-on's and found the lyrics to the first dance and printed these on t a trancparancey.

I hope she likes it ..... Hopefully i should be able to show you some pages and cards that i have been doing. I promise i will be a better blogger
