Candy Boxes

Hi everyone.

How are you all doing? I am totally swamped now, so much to get done before CHA and the upcoming USA-tour which I am really looking forward to! ;O)

Today I wish to share some works I did for the Prima Inspiration book last year. Two altered boxes with candy, and first up is a "Love Candy Box" filled with red gel hearts; 



This is an empty Prima box which used to have those old BIG flowers inside. I covered the top and the bottom with Prima Paintable cardstock which I decided to leave clean in black and white. The black angels and circles with text on clear is pattern from an old Prima overlay which I cut out and mounted to the clear on the box. I filled the "heart-themed" box with red gel hearts.


On the top lid I decorated with a wide vintage bow and Prima flowers, and the title is chipboard letters standing in melted wax (melt some drops of wax on the project and quickly add the chipboard letters before the wax gets cold. Drip wax for one letter at the time, set in the letter, then drip wax for the next letter and so on..).


And a close up showing a vintage lace and a Prima chipboard with rub-on words which I added on.


I also made a altered wooden box from Prima (old) which used to have chipboard, ribbons and buttons inside, which I filled with chocolate! :D *love chocolate*
I do not have any good pics of this project, and unfortunately it was damaged during transport, so i have not been able to take new shots either. Anyway, here is a (bad) peek of it;





I totally LOVE the chocolates which was inside of it for a tiny bit... ;O) lol.



And a close-up showing the stamped butterfly on a clear I cut out and added on the top of the large Prima flower.


Thank you each one of you for dropping by, and I wish you all a wonderful and creative weekend!

*hugs and smiles*
Ingvild
