Wedding Box ~ ScrapFIT Workout #58 ~ Mini Pics Reveal

It's time for a fabulous new Workout at ScrapFIT!!


It seems when something is smaller than normal size it makes it better or cuter! For this Workout you will need to work with Mini Pictures! Then need to be wallet size or smaller - you can have as many or as few as you would like. 

Rachel and Joseph had a beautiful wedding on December 10. I decided instead of a layout like I usually do, I would create a card box for the reception. I placed tiny black and white photos individually matted in a red glitter paper, from their engagement photos and one of Rachel's favorites from Thanksgiving on the edge of the box lid. I so appreciate the wonderful Workouts at ScrapFIT. I'm sure I would have never thought of this idea without this fabulous prompt. So I hope you will join me in embracing this Workout challenge. I can't wait to see what you post on Mister Linky at ScrapFIT!!

Techniques:
Box ~ I used a plain cardboard box that had the shape I was looking for. I cut the top flaps off and used another large piece of cardboard to create the lid with a two inch edge. I cut the card slot, then covered the lid in black moleskin fabric. I used my Scotch ATG to adhere the fabric. I then sprayed the box one side at a time starting with the smaller sides as well as the back of the paper to adhere to the box. I went back and used the red backed tape to secure the edges of the paper as they were a little loose with just the spray adhesive. Then around the bottom, I used a band of black grosgrain ribbon.


Flowers ~ I created these flowers with the Spellbinders Rose Creations die. First I created and glued together the center "bud." Then I used 3 more of the small size petals, and 4 each of 3 larger size petals - your petal size selection will determine the final size of your roses. I inked the petal edges then spritzed them with water and scrunched around the center (I re-spritzed every few petal layers to make sure all the petals were damp. When dry, I arranged the petals so they were in different positions to give nice fullness and then painted translucent medium on the edges with a fine paint brush. I further embellished with wired Christmas berries and rose leaves rescued form the floral department trash at my favorite craft store, Pat Catan's. These roses were quite time consuming, but worth the effort. 


Photos ~ I converted the photos to black and white and sized them at 1 3/4 inches in height - not worrying about the width. I matted each with about 1/8 inch red sparkle paper then evenly spaced them across the front of the lid. 

Thanks for dropping by. I treasure your comments!
