I needed a place to put all of my chipboard and embossing powders so I went to Hobby Lobby and found this plain white box ($1.99). I knew I could store a lot of chipboard in it and decided to make it my stash box. Obviously I had to turn it into a craft project.
I used two different scrap papers. The top is sprayed on the sides using Prima Bloom spray (Iris), Dylusions (Calypso teal), and Lindys Stamp Gang (Salt Water Taffy and Aloha Avocado). I glued my paper to the top and used different embellies to accent it, but not too many because I wanted to be able to take the lid off with no worries about messing anything up. I also sprayed some cheesecloth and layered it behind the chipboard pieces. The little 7 chipboard is covered in Inka Gold green/yellow.
Using a damask Prima stencil I added some texture to the side paper pieces, just to give it a shabby feel. I glued these to the sides and added some rub on words from Tim Holtz.
I finished the edges with Powder Puff chalk ink Very Berry and now I have a pretty stash box.
This design is entered into the following challenges:
