Okay! Evening Quirky People! It's my turn to set the challenge this fortnight over on Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog and I thought we'd do...
So I want to see More Than One Fold on your creation! Our sponsor this time is The Cutting Cafe and all the little images have come from there. Pop over to Quirky Craft's Challenge Blog and see what the others have been up to. I think you can make this challenge as easy or as hard as you like!
I've cheated again. (Well, only you and me know!) I've used a little die-cut box, now discontinued (Bigz XL die – Box, Shaker). sent to me
ages years ago by ATC famous Paul and his fantastic Bugaboo cards, from Craftyblogocks, as a RAC with some ATC's. (so go and have a look, I mean, a visit!)
So, first I inked all the edges of the opened unstuck box with Tim Holtz Vintage and added acetate into the window.
Printed out some skull and cross bones paper, only to see I'm outta ink again! (where does it go??)
Never mind, seeing the black had gone green/grey I just continued to ink everything in Vintage.
Second picture down shows the back of the box. I did two things with the same box in the end (Just in case I didn't have time to do the one I wanted to do, which is in the next lot of pictures) Cut all the bits of paper to size, inked them, oh yes, forgot, and embossed them too, with a keys embossing folder from Crafter's Companion, then fixed them on, made a band to go around the box so to keep it shut, then when you open it up, there's some nice 'gold treasure bars' inside, in the form of toffees!
The second idea was to make a little book to go inside instead. (so to make room, first eat toffees!) I have a few pictures of me, my girls, one of their friends and my niece when they were all
very little, smaller than they are now,
dressed as pirates, but without the ink in my printer I couldn't use
that idea, so I made this little book with loads of folds, ready for
when I can add the pictures, again using as many of the sentiments and little digi's as I could fit in.
Some things can be stuck on the pages or tucked inside the little hidden pockets, an extra place to add or hide pictures and tags. (or birthday money)
I ripped and screwed up the map and then inked it, to make it look old and tatty.
Then it all closes up again, to look like this... added corner peel offs and the brad key and key-hole and some die-cut 'left over bits.' Wouldn't mind this little box die-cut, have looked out for it but never spotted it yet. Suddenly having more idea of what to do with it! Thanks it! Thank you for stopping by! Hope to add this to some...
