Today it is my turn to present one project for Maja Design.
The project I’m going to show you today is one project I created 25 August, but because of bad images, the time was never right, it never got published. But today it’s time, and you know what is funny is that these images are the first pictures I took of the project.
You know I’m going to be a Aunt, for the first time in February next year <3 But to tell you how this project started, we need to go some months back. My sister called me at the start of August to tell me she was pregnant, and the due date is February the 18. She also told me that she wanted to tell it in a very special way, in fact she whant to tell it with a specal project. How this project was going to be, it was all up to me, but it had to be a calendar on it, since we not at that time knew if it was a boy or a girl, the project had to be in neutral colors.
I liked the idea right away, I liked it alot, and that this is not a project you see each day. What is special about this box is that this is the first project I make to my aunt children <3
For this box I’ve used paper from two different Maja Design collections. Vintage Romance and Vintage Spring Basics. I have chosen out those sheets in a gray and bright tone.
After I had covered the box with pattern sheets, I attached silver feet below the box, glue on buttons and pearl ribbon on the sides and the edges.
On the lid of the box I made one plateau, this I did because it would be easier to decorate and put things I create in 3D and other details.
On two of the sides I have decorated with one locomotive (my own tutorial), an elephant that I found in a folding book for children, butterflies, flowers, buttons, pearls, cheese cloth and blocks.
On the other two sides, I have many of the same details, but here I have one 3D plane (put together with my own turorial) and a Giraffe folded from the same children book that the elephant.
Atop of the plateau i have a easel that I have made myself, with a calendar on. Around the due date which is the 18 I have a heart and on the top of the calendar I have written February. February is punched out with one set of dises from kaBoks.
On the side of the calendar are several blocks, these blocks I have used one dies of one train and placed on blocks that I have put together. The other details are pearl and butterflies.
One very special project from me today, that means a lot to me that I got to make it <3 <3 <3
And before I quit my blog post, I would like once again to say congratulations to my sister and the great man she is with <3 You’re going to be a great dad and mom to a little boy coming in February <3
