Wow the months have flown - and I have been crafting the whole time and not sharing with you. For that I apologize. I'll begin sharing now!! I've been crafting with an amazing group of ladies on A Lil' Scrap of Heaven. If you're looking for a place that hosts fun and challenging swaps, this is your place. I've taken part in several swaps, one of which was a Chocolate Box Swap. Where the task is to decorate a chocolate box and fill it with goodies. Here's what I made for my swap partner:
I started out by painting it with metallic champagne paint around the edges and on 1" around the top. On the top of the box I painted block of metallic rose paint and then hand died some lace with Lindy's Stamp Gang Black Orchid Silver Starburst spray. I then lined the pink box with balsa wood stained with the same Lindy's.
Isn't it lovely? She loved every bit of it - it was a whole days work, but an amazing project.
What have you been working on?
