Hi there! It's time once again for a design team project for the Anything But A Card Challenge! This month's theme is a 'Tic Tac Toe' challenge. You have to pick three items in a straight line that goes up and down, across, or diagonally to make a tic tac toe! Easy Peasy! And here is the board for you to choose from ...
For my project this month I chose the center line horizontally, which is bling, hearts and mists or inks. I had a heart shaped candy box laying around and decided it would work perfectly for my heart shape from the center of the board. I also used up some old bling I had been holding onto for ages! Here is my project ...
For the edge of the box shape, I guess you would call it the 'band' of the box, I added some yellow card stock and painted it with a glittery paint. Then I added some tulle trim in a mauve color, and some brilliant blue seam binding ribbon. For the top of the box I traced the top onto some matching blue card stock and adhered it to the top.
Next I took a paper doily that I had misted with three different colors of mist and let it dry. Then I cut the doily up into several pieces and decoupaged it onto the box top, leaving the center of the doily as the center of the box. Next I painted the top of the box with a glittery paint, let it dry, and added the bling. And I think I may have gone a little overboard with the bling, but it's okay!
Then I added a pretty bow of the blue seam binding and added a cute heart shaped button. And that was it! I think my box is pretty, and I think it would be a very cute treasure box for a young girl!
Oh, and does anything look familiar on this project??? Well, it should, because the doily I used on top of the box is the one that was on the board above! When DT Leader Susan contacted me and asked me to help her with the images for the board, I just knew I wanted to use that doily in my project! Here is a pic of the original image used on the board ...
And I used the piece of paper that I used to do the misting for the bottom of the box by simply tracing around the box, cutting it out, and adhering it to the bottom of the box.
Thanks so much for joining me today! If you haven't already, why don't you go play tic tac toe with us, make a project and share it on the Anything But A Card blog! Blessings,
