A Little Box of Memories made with “Ornate Annie” Paper Collection

“Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose”, wonderful words put together. Truly life accords us with so many cherished moments that we wish to treasure all through our lives. As is often stated that something may survive of a person in his life and that is his memories which he makes with his beloved. I particularly wished to capture these moments and therefore decided to design a 6X6 inches mini scrapbook album and I gladly call it, “Little Box of Memories”. To make this amazing creation what could be better than Bob n Betty’s latest release of pattern paper collection, Ornate Annie, which I received in my DT pack this month. Ornate Annie paper pack is a perfect amalgamation of blooming flowers and dramatic ladies, adding a vintage touch to the papers.

I loved playing around with these papers so much, as the color combination is super awesome and coordinated each other so well that it actually reduced my efforts of mix and match. There are so many things to fussy cut and use them as embellishments and I feel that is why it is best suited to name it as, “Ornate”, meaning “Embellishment”.

I took out this adorable small little envelope from the Tag page of this stack.

The cover page comprises of fussy cut flowers, few leaves and beautiful butterflies as rightly said “A butterfly measures not in minutes, but in moments.”

I love making these mini albums with lots of cute pockets, tags and pull-outs.

So gone down your memory lanes, gather some amazing and wonderful moments of your life and create your own mesmerizing love story.

I hope you too like this innovative creation, with a sensitive touch.

Happy Crafting

Decoupaged Boxes with Exotic Birds Collection

Hello Friends
A crafty mind cannot stay hushed; it’s a home to numerous creative ideas popping up every single moment. It can visualize artistry even in a simple wooden box, which might be for others just a piece of household item. Decoupage is an amazing art form that can completely transform the appearance of an object and keep viewer enthralled. Today, I am going to show you how to turn a simple wooden box into a beautiful and attractive home décor accent. I played around with gorgeous pattern paper, glued in place to deceive the eye as if it was a painted design!!! To actually turn my fantasy into reality, I made use of the beautiful collection of pattern papers from BobnBetty, “Exotic Birds”. These papers were a lovely amalgamation of natural beauty and birds.

Here is a brief procedure with extremely simple and easy steps:

All the boxes & lids were painted with black acrylic color
The paper (exotic birds) was trimmed to size keeping the patterns in mind & using Mod Podge glued on the painted boxes. Let it dry. Using a sponge dauber I highlighted the edges of all the boxes in black. Once it was dried, I buffed inka gold for added interest.

For the lids I used crackle paste to stencil a design. Let it dry & painted in black again. To highlight the cracks I buffed inka gold on the lids.

Apply a coat of Mod Podge over the boxes & lids once again, followed by several coats of varnish. Make sure to dry the layers thoroughly between each coat.
Fix the knobs of the lid.

I was completely amazed and delighted with the outcome. These decoupage boxes can be used in a variety of ways, as a home décor or for storing household items.
I thoroughly enjoyed the process of making it and hope you too had a good time…
