Tips and Techniques – Unusual OTP’s

The Tips this week is actually quite specific – instead of saying to you “go out to Vinnies and be inspired” I am saying “Go and get a box of Petaloo flowers so that you can take to flowers out and scrap the Box!”…

LOL – well, need I say more?

I was given a box of Petaloo flowers and once I had taken the flowers out there was a cool box to scrap – with a picture window and everything!

The best part of this is that you can change the photo inside all the time and just scrap the outside!

You need:
Petaloo flower box
Photo for cropping
Decorations and embellishment for the box
Paint and Ink.

Cut your photo down to size to fit inside the box.

Brush white paint in a cross motion on the top edges of the box, just to make it have a bit of texture. Then start embellishing your box with large letters as the first layer, then flourishes and/or chipboard, and lastly, flowers and gems…

And then you have a finished product! Ta Da!

You could use this for a number of things – simply decorative (pop it on the shelf in your bedroom or office), as a lolly container with the title “Sweet THing”, as an ATC card holder and so on!!

Take care girls,
Sares xx
