Bang Bang BeYOUtiful!

...blimey, two posts in two days!  I am on a roll!  My DT pack for Jones of Nottingham arrived whilst I was on holibobs and I have been half way through making this for the past 5 weeks... thankfully, now Mr Mojo has returned, I have been able to finish it off properly.   My DT pack was the gorgeous BeYOUtiful collection from Kaisercraft along with a packet of the Collectable in the same collection.



I made an exploding box - I sneaked a little bit of Storyteller collection in too as these papers go together so perfectly and I loves them both - wouldn't do to have favourites right?



There are three layers and a lid to the construction of the box and lots of panels of more papers which have been inked with Gathered Twigs (I love adding smidges of brown around the edges of stuff... especially as this colours up any cut edges of the papers)



The Collectables are fabulous you know.  Chock full of diecut printed shapes and sentiments and perfect to be chopped about and added onto projects.  On the side of the box I used two diecut printed flowery shapes and cut them up the middle and stuck them to the panels next to each other so when the box is closed, they kind of line up together.


Aren't the ickle birdies just toooo cute!!!  These have been cut a little closer and edged with Gathered Twigs and popped onto the box and lid with 3d foam.


The flowery top was made using Tim's Floral Garland die, layered up flowers and jazzed up with a flat back pearl.  The centre has three mini roses and a few bits of ivy (I sneaked a smidge of Heirloom collection in here too...teeheee)



I am making this a short n sweet post today as I have a date with Mr Mojo again!  Oh yesh, he is currently doing a fandango in the Room of Stash and is brandishing an inkpad so I am thinking he wants to get creative again!  Yeeehaw!!  Thanks for looking... have a great day!
