As many of you know I am a Graphic45 "follower and user". I love every line and get so excited when I make a g-45 project. Here is my latest.
A friend of mine gave me cigar boxes she got from her step-father. They are black, Cervantes and all wood. Love these boxes! What I did was cover the box and decoupage'd it for some glisten. I then distressed it and added the cover elements. The flowers are 3-d. It is hard to see but the flowers are built on each other. What I did was this. I cut out each flower, 2 each. One I left as is and the other I followed some of the flower lines, inside, and cut them, without cutting it out. When I finished I wet them and scrunched. I let them dry a few minutes then very carefully I unscrunched them. This gave me the dimension I wanted. I then put them each on their matching flower and let them dry. When dry I lifted each cut and it opened up the flower. Very nice look.
The inside of the box has an envelope to put special "things" and on the bottom inside I had a 4 squared wooden holder. I painted it black and glued it on. If I were to use this myself, I would not have glued it, but since this is for display at a LSS I went ahead and fixed it.
Thanks for the opportunity to share my project with you. It was a true delight and I will be sharing more soon.
Have a great day and happy scrappin'. Remember to try something new today.
