Great to be back today sharing a project made for the Creativation show. I love Vignette Boxes! They have been a staple in my crafting since they were released last year. This past show, we made a conscious effort to show Vignette Boxes used in different ways so people might "think beyond the box" sorta speak. We also have developed some products that will make creating with the boxes even easier, like the new Mini Foundations and Finial Set (which I will talk more about in a future post).
This week I thought I might share a few ways I used the basic Vignette boxes, starting today with a French inspired jewel box.
I used the largest of the Vignette Boxes and the matching Vignette Panel for the lid (sold separately) for the base of the project. I ran multiple pieces of Ranger Metal Foil Tape Sheets through the Vagabond using the Sizzix "Quilted" Texture Fade. If you don't know, Metal Foil Tape Sheets are adhesive-backed thin metal sheets ideal for home décor projects, because they are an easy way to add texture and so forgiving when adhering to the project!
PLEASE NOTE: all metals and Industrious Stickers have been colored with Gold Metallic Mixative and Mushroom Alcohol Ink.
Clippings Stickers were added to the underside. I always like the idea of a secret message for the intended receiver. I covered the stickers with Collage Medium and once dry I added shading with my Walnut Stain Distress Crayon.
I hope you liked today's post and that it might open the door to think about Vignette Boxes in a different light. I will be back later in the week to share another take...quite different from this one but just as fun!
now carry on,
