While browsing through some blogs from Norway I came across a delightful design for a Book Box on the Papirdesign-blog which was a box made as a decoration for Easter by Monica. I contacted Monica who told me that she had learned how to make this at one of the Papirfest classes but she gave me the following link for a excellent and easy to follow tutorial.
Thank you Monica and Michele.
It is my dear friend's birthday soon so I decided to make a card to go inside the front cover of my box and to put her present inside the box. The box is embellished with pretty papers, ribbons, charms and beads. In the center of the front cover I stamped a pretty image then embossed it with pearlescent powder. I then used the same stamp to emboss a triple layer of UTEE and final layer of the matching pearlescent powder while hot on a Formica kitchen counter sample tile and placed it exactly over the first stamp to raise the detail. Now to buy the present, something pretty, some jewelery perhaps?
