Glorious Gift Boxes
Creative Inspirations Paints Design Team B had the challenge of making gift boxes decorated using the paints. My first box was a box created to hold a travel journal (also colored using Creative Inspirations Paints.) The box and book were part of a kit from Club Scrap. The stamps are also Club Scrap stamps. The box (behind the book) has the images stamped in black on squares of paper. Each of the squares were painted in corresponding colors. This creates a lovely shimmer to the squares. Unfortunately a scan does not show the shimmer as well as the real thing. On the book I stamped a Club Scrap image and used the paints to color the image. Again the shimmer is unbelievable.
The second box is a die cut from Sizzix. It was supposed to be a box for a wedding, but my daughter was having a birthday and it was the perfect size for her gift. She love the color purple, so of course the box had to be decorated in purple. The flowers are all stamped and colored with amethyst paint. The rose was cut in pink cardstock and painted with royal purple. The leaves were painted over with spring green.
