She Wished for Beauty

Hi everyone and Happy Memorial Day!!! I'm here to share my May Flowers project I created for the Art with Heart Challenge which is over at Eileen Hull's blog. I had just finished an altered Altoid tin for my design team project and after looking at the suitcase die I decided I could definitely create my own "Altoid tin" with this diecut. :-)
For this challenge I used Eileen Hull's Sizzix Scoreboards XL Die Bag Suitcase to cut out two "bottoms" each from mat board and cardstock for a total of four "bottoms". I inked all the edges with chalk ink, adhered together.
Now for the fun part…adding all the fun embellishments!!!


I fussy cut the girl images out from the Easter Children Hang Tags and added stickles for a bit of shimmer.


I've had these hinges for several years and I'm now finally using them…yes, can we say I am a craft horder ;-)


I used some leftover dies that I had cut out from the Sizzix Scoreboards XL Die Box Square to use to frame the side of the box. The buttons, Dew Drops and sequins I built up so I could wrap twine around to keep the box close. The beads I added as weighs to keep the twine from unwinding around the button.



The inside I used the Tim Holtz: Lace Die along with dew drops, stickers, punches, sizzlets and buttons which I think turned out adorable.



I fussy cut a butterfly from the Vintage Spring Printable. I added antenna and flowers to  top off the upper corner of the box.
