Hello Everyone
Today it is me Silje Kristin, that will inspire you <3
It’s finally Sunday, and I’m ready for my new post for Maja Design <3
This time I’ll show you a couple of large boxes, that were in a Norwegian Scrapbooking magazine, Ett Trykk.
I have decorated two tin boxes some lovely Maja sheets.
On this boxes I’ve used patterned papers from Maja Design’s collection The Vintage Spring Basics.
This is one of my favorite collection, the colors in the sheets is lovely and complex with the pattern. Its makes it easy to mix sheets and colors to the projects you create.
I have chosen to use the blue sheets from the collection.
I came across these tin boxes in a Norwegian store, called Sisters Grene. I removed the metal fasteners behind the box and lock in the front, before I dresses the sides with paper from Maja Design.
All the edges are blackened with distress Walnut Stain.
Both boxes are decorated with the same details. Instead of using a lot of flowers I decided to use metal details.
The biggest box stands on four large metal corner feet. The brown ribbon, going round the box and is fastned in metal from Tim Holtz. I have also used white metal plates with words from Prima: Bliss – Care – Home. On the lid I have used metal corner, but in the other corner you will see brown brads.
The metal clasp on the front is from Fab Scraps.
On the side of this box I’ve put together words on eatch side, Thankful and Treasure.
The butterflies are from one set from BoBunny with three butterflies dies.
On the smallest box, you will find the same metal decorations as the largest box. Metal plates on this is with numbers and words: 52 – Love – 24. The metal feet are smaller on this box then the bigest one.
On the side of this box, you will find two new words: Adore and Love.
The words give a whole to the boxes and what they symbolize <3
To the boxes I’ve created two different tags, punched out with one set of dies from Nellie Snellen.
On the tags on the bigest box I have used one dies from kaBoks with one word
Fantastic on. Metal decorations on this is charms and a amulet with the words Faith – Hope – Love. The tag are attached with metal rings to the lid on the box.
I have also used a butterfly and some brownbrads.
On the smaller box is the tag slightly smaller. The metal decor is a big key and a small key, I’ve also attached a smal eifel tower on this tag also.
I also spent a die from kaBoks with the words Luck on.
The Butterflies are blackened with the same Distress used elsewhere on the boxes.
The back of the boxes are simple, here are just the metal loops that secure the lid to the box.
And this is my Vintage Travel Boxes, made with the most beautiful sheets from Maja Design <3
 Have a GREAT day everyone <3
