Hello everyone, I made this little trinket box for the challenge over at Altered Eclectics. The whole box was made from recycled material including a Dove Soap Box and a Cereal Box.
The Top, Bottom and Inside of the box were created from a cereal box and the hinge part on the back which attaches the top and the bottom and allows it to flip open is from a recycled Dove Box.
The main focal point on the top is one of the designs from my CS Designs Collectables and Ephemera Digital Stamp Series and I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and blended it with odorless turpentine to give it a more subtle appearance.
The rose on the bottom is a combination pieces the part with text i was created from a recycled page book and punch and then painted with re-inking ink. The bottom part was created using a punch and the heavier texture of the card-stock allowed me to curl the petals up a little to give the flower a more 3d look.The sentiment is also one of my digital stamp designs.
I though this little trinket box was the perfect place to store some of my junk jewellery which I occasionally use as embellishments for my recycled projects, and the colors on the box coordinate with what is inside.
I hope you have enjoyed my little box and will go check out the Altered Eclectics challenge. This is such an amazing challenge and the talent there is incredible and sure you will find it inspiring.
