Tim Holtz Configeration Boxes~
It is my Niece's Birthday today, and I have made her a Tim Holtz Configuration box as a pressy, I thought I would show it you and see what you think.
I have really enjoyed making them (this is my second, first one I made for my daughter Eve). They are really easy to do, and the whole thing is made so much easier using the brilliant Tissue Tape from Tim.
My daughters box is white and very modern, where as Leah's box is far more vintage.
I have been collecting little bits and bobs to put inside, and managed to get lots of lovely things on Saturday. Old clocks, vintage photo's, plaques, thimble, old bobbins etc.
I used Tim's little box feet on Eve's box, but decided to use the great little bobbins with tissue tape round them for Leah's box!
Port Sunlight was great, I spent lots of money and had fun all day. It's quite a long way from me (3 hours there and 3 hours back) and I did the driving, so today I have been very tired. Back to work so feeling it a bit, but time to craft later on, so happy.
I have found I can enter these boxes into:
Cute Card Thursday--Distressing
Creative Inspirations--Decorate the inside
Dream Valley Ch--Use Old and New
Delicious Doodles--What Inspires You
Flutter by Wednesday--Anything but a card (My papers have butterflies on them)
One Stitch At a Time--Anything Goes
