Today is my turn to share something that I created using my Design Team kit - I had Nikki Sivils "Summer" paper line to work with which turned out very fun! I don't normally consider myself a "cute-sie" person, but getting myself out of my typical comfort zone worked out really well! As soon as I saw the paper, I knew what I wanted to create for my project - and here it is! A colorful, fun, hat box!
I covered the wooden bird house with the patterned paper, I pieced the "roof" paper together and sewed them together the same way I did the band for the hat box. I added a little bit of ribbon trim to clean up the edge of the roof. I added bling around the house's opening - who doesn't love to come home to pretty sparkles? The bird house is balancing on sticks that I pulled off a tree and wrapped with bakers twine. For extra stability, I added a button under the bird house and connected it to the box lid.
I think that this box would be a great gift wrapping/gift for someone. You could wrap a present in it, then they could use it on a shelf or to store crafting supplies in... I just think it's super cute and while it looks like a ton of work, it really wasn't that bad!
I hope that you're feeling inspired! Please check out my blog for a flower rolling tutorial that I plan to post tomorrow!
Tomorrow we'll have a page layout by DT member, Christina, to share! We'll see you then! And thanks for checking out my project!
