Hi everyone. Today I have an off the page project for you.
I brought a Tim Holtz Mini Configuration Book a while ago to make it into a Jewellery Box for my Daughter. She loves pink and the Vintage Summer Basics collection has the most gorgeous pink papers which I decided were prefect for this box.
I used the Vintage Summer Basic Papers 1908, 1910, 1922 and 1925. I started by putting a layer of gesso over the whole thing and then I cut the paper to fit the cover, sides and inside of the book.
I layered lots of pretty embellishments on the cover, some of these are my Daughters favourites from my stash – e.g. the little birds nest and mini birds.
Once the papers were glued on I went over all the edges with distress ink in Vintage Photo
Then I added some lace and pearls to the spine, and to finish off I added pearls to the cover.
On the Inside I covered the larger surfaces with paper, then I took the foam out of some old jewellery boxes to fit inside the smallest squares
