Jewellery Box!

Morning my crafting friends, hope today finds you all well?

Today I am showing you the home decor piece I made for the Sheena Douglass 4 Day deal on Create and Craft RIGHT NOW!

I wanted to show that the Fiary was not just a fairy, she could be a ballerina as I have shown here.

I bought some cheap boxes and painted one up in a pale shade of Pink then rubbed Gold gilding wax around the edges. My son took the hinges and fastener off and burnt them to make them look old and not so shiny!

For the fairy I die cut her out and embossed her then snipped into her arms and legs to change the pose. I embossed some vellum in the Christmas Rose folder, cut the flowers out and placed them on her as her dress, I then ran some stickles glitter glue round the edges. I painted on her ballet shoes and positioned her on top of the box.

Using more vellum I stamped some Ivy and embossed it with Gold embossing powder before cutting it out, I painted on the back with Aquatints and stuck it round the sides of the box.
Using the Fairy wings  I die cut and embossed them with Vellum and heat resistant acetate, heat embossed with Gold embossing powder and painted on the back with Aquatints, I then matted and layered each vellum wing under the acetate one, added a gem for the body, some craft wire for their antennas and they became butterflies. I placed these on the box as seen.
For the inside of the box I just folded strips of card and stuck them together to form a frame inside the box, I covered this with Self Adhesive Felt in a deep Pink shade and placed inside the box to make the compartments for jewellery or whatever.

The design team have come up with some absolutely fabulous ideas for home decor so please do tune in to see their stunning creations. The Sheena Douglass 4 Day Deal shows are on Create and Craft over the next couple of days
