Birthday box with bunny and flowers

Hello everybody,

We have to wait a while until spring arrives but with my project today I hope to already bring a bit of spring to you.
I made this box (you can see it's a box on the next picture) as a gift for my sister in law who will be celebrating her birthday in a few days. The adorable image has been created by Crissy Armstrong but is unfortunately no longer available. It was the perfect image though to use the lovely spring colors I was in the mood to work with.

In this flower cluster I used a cherry blossom flower, an open and a trellis rose and gorgeous tulips (you'll find the codes for the flowers below this post). The leaves that I used are part of the tulips, I cut them off and used them around the cluster.
And in my second flower cluster I used again a cherry blossom flower, open roses, hip rosebuds and a sweetheart blossom. The little white flowers were cut out with a die and have self adhesive pink rhinestones as centers.

Hope you enjoyed my box in spring colors and get inspired to maybe get out your spring colored flowers as well. Have a great day everybody!

Hugs,

Tag - "STEP-BY-STEP"

Today I want to share with you a tag and a small step-by-step tutorial.
 
 
 
First I make a dis (Tim Holtz) at about 8 x 15 cm. (1).
Then I cut following rectangles:

2.  7,5 x 14,5 cm
3.  7,0 x 14,0 cm
4.  6,5 x 13,5 cm
 
 
I blacken the edges with following ink:
Chestnut Roan, Olive Pastel and Sepia Black. All from ColorBox.


I sew a small border with a sewing machine on the smallest rectangle (top rectangle on the tag).
Then I glue the rectangles layer by layer on the tag.


I'm stamping a text and cut this with Spellbinders. Here I have used Spellbinders Standard Circles, Large and Small.


I also blacken with the same ink as above. I attach 3D-squares behind and glue the text on the tag.
 
 
I fold and tear a little around the edges on the tag, the pattern paper and the text. This to get that "shabby-chic"-look.
 
 
Your tag is ready to be decorated!


 
Good luck!
 
Have a nice day!

She is on pictures with my boys.
Photos were taken on holiday where we were together :)
