Winning MIFYH Contest Entry #4

Well, we're finally at the end... this is my final winning project from the Make It From Your Heart contest.  And it's the one I'm most proud of...

I turned a CTMH blank card box into a trinket box that looks like a book on the outside. 
{yes, I'm patting myself on the back... lol}

It' looks so cool in real life.

I am in love with this book/box!

This 3D project won for the September Stamp Of The Month - Limited Edition category, using the Typeset Level 2 paper pack.

First, I sponged Chocolate ink over the edges of the entire box.

To make the cardstock look like "pages", all I did was score 1/8" lines onto pieces of Bamboo cardstock and then I lightly sponged Desert Sand ink over the lines.

I wrapped a piece of Juniper B&T around the spine of the book, using some 3D foam tape underneath to give it a more rounded look.

I also scored double lines closer to the top and bottom of the Juniper B&T "spine", and then inked those score lines in the same manner as the "pages".


Well, I hope you enjoyed all my projects, non-winners and winners, too.

I've had fun sharing them with you. 

Happy creating!  :)
