Danielle's Corner Office: Pink altered note paper holder

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Pink altered note paper holder

Another altered note paper holder! This one is for my friend, Nancy, who is a breast cancer survivor. The pink ribbon design is actully an ampersand (&) cut with my cricut (I forget which font cartridge I used) in pink and in white (for the shadow). I then cut off the bottom to turn it into the ribbon design. It's popped off the box with foam tape. I added pink rhinestones for a bit of sparkle and also added Stickles around the outside of the shadow layer. The design on the edge of the lid is a clear stamp from Prima. I used "cotton candy" ink by Nicole, and used clear rhinestones. The papers are from my stash, so I don't know the manufacturer. I put a line of pearls between the stamped design and the patterened paper, to cover the edge and to divide the two. The flowers are made with some sheer ribbon that someone gave me. I gathered a length of ribbon into a circle and tied the ends of the thread and then added leaves cut from a silk flower I had lying around. I am entering this project into the following challenges:

1. One Stop Craft Challenge- Diamonds are a girl's best friend
2. Allsorts Challenge- make a gift box
