Art with a Heart Challenge – go green

hello everyone!!!!

It’s a new month and new theme for the Art with Heart Challenge (http://www NULL.eileenhull This month is all about Going Green.

1484679_10204153235727864_3443497472523219618_nso for my take on this challenge i chose to do the whole recycle portion of ‘green’

i started with cutting the packing I save from my monthly stencil girl stencils shipment. I am in need of a box or a basket you see to hold my hair products all nice and pretty like and I figured why buy when I can make.

so I started of first cutting out 3 sets of the mini album die, which i pieced together into a box after painting the inside black and then taped them together using, oh yes i did, hockey tape!!

so after covering mat board with my paper i proceeded to cut out 4 gates plus i cut out 4 sets of the center of the mini album to reinforce the corners of my box


and then i also recut two sets of the mini album just with the studio calico paper for the outside and inside of my box… the black was nice but didn’t really go with the whole cleanness of my box

IMG_6697i am loving how it turned out and it is the perfect size for my products!

i created the centre piece by apply a layer of pearl paint to the square i had cute out and set an iron on sewing machine into the paint. once everything was dry i started layering with UTEE until it was all completely encased.. so freakin cute i say
