For my box, I used Photoshop to clip these digi papers from the Thrifty Finds kit to the template, adding the digi stamp of the Eiffel tower from the same kit to the front, before printing it out. Next I cut out the template, scored according to the directions, adding some inked edges with Vintage Photo ink. Since I printed on an inkjet and didn't wait for the ink to set up, the sponging removed bits of the printed page, leaving a distressed look that I totally love. I used PanPastels to color in the Eiffel tower, then cut a Primitive Heart die cut and the sentiment tag from some already printed Thrifty Finds paper. The sentiment is from the Words Cannot Express set and I used PanPastels to color the heart and add a bit of shading to the sentiment as well. I finished off by punching a whole in my heart tag and attaching it to the box with shabby wrinkled ribbon, then adding a glitzy star attached to a hat pin for accent.
That's all from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous week.
