This week over on Make My Monday

We are still on the Steampunk theme, but this week the challenge is to make anything but not a card.


Now this is not the original box I made for this challenge, but somehow over the last week since I finished it I have managed to misplace it! This one I managed to get done on Sunday using Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante paper and a box I had bought for something else and never used. This box I covered with tissue that had been stamped with a cog stamp then stuck to the box with wet glue. Once dry I wiped gold paint over the edges, then added cogs and flowers that had been cut out from the Graphic 45 paper. I used a large image for the top and a row of smaller images around the sides.

Please go over to Make My Monday to have a look at what the rest of the team have been up to.

Thanks for reading,
Cath

Boxes seem very difficult to do but you have done one beautifully! So glad you encouraged the DT to go with SteamPunk this month! Thanks for the words of encouragement on my blog. Best, Yvonne

Managed to miss your post somehow Cath as I've been so busy so sorry about that.
Your box is really gorgeous and love the image, colours and embellishments on there.
Hugs, Fliss xx
