Fun with chipboard ;)

Hi! As said we are posting more frequently on the Dutch Dares blog. Today i thought it was fun to share a little project i made. I LOVE chipboard. And manufacturers design the COOLEST chipboard elements these days, which are hard to resist... I never let ANY piece of chipboard go to waste, so when i bought a 6x9 photo-album by Making Memories i was even more happy when i opened it... cuz there was the cutest piece of chipboard (to protect the album) inside!! And i started playing with it ;)

i took it apart

dressed up the outside with BG 's Blush
dressed up the inside too
stamped the words "Imagine" and "Thanks" then sprinkled UTEE over it and heated it with a heatgun. Inked all the edges i could discover with brown ink.
painted the side, dressed up the other small side
glued the side back into the box
and embellished the front with felt&knitted flower, ribbon, rubon, letterstickers, brad and bling.
made a little magnetic closure
and added my wishes into my little box of wishes, which i did not take a photo of... as they are secret...:)

Here's my list of supplies used: Chipboard portector inside MM 6x9 album, BG Blush and Phoebe, BG magnetic closure, covered by a little chipboard Elsie-cloud, Versamark clear ink, Ranger brown ink, aqua blue UTEE by Blonde Moments, Cherry Arte rubon, felt and knitted flower, brad, ribbon, buttons, bling, Uniball Signo white pen, (letters "My little box of" is font Jinky that i cut out with the Quickutz Silhouette) and one of my ultimate favorites: THICKERS!

Thanks for popping in and hope to see you back here soon! Luv, Mandy
