Reusing after long !

Hello friends ! A post dedicated to reusing  after a long gap (again !)
If you love handmade flowers and shabby chic style then its a treat for you today and if like me you too love reusing ,a double treat! Thanks to current challenge at papericious,some of the packaging boxes that have been stashed in my cupboard for ages got decorated (finally)! All of them more or less the same,pretty patterned papers from femina paper (Papericious)pack,criss-cross chipboard,handmade flowers and few embellishments.

Started with this drawer box,

Covered with a pink pp from the pack,coat of gesso followed by crackle paste to add some texture.

I wrapped masking tape around a wire to create a coil,used criss cross chipboard and decorated with flowers and leaves!

This box had some more probable candidate to be reused.

Made a gate fold card and tag using them. Used white and gold foil paper.I have added distress ink to texture paste to get a lovely mint paste.flowers have a coat of gesso.

Here is , how it opens

A shaker which says bloom together ,goes well with anniversary theme.

A tag to write message.All tied with a jute twine from papericious.
Next I reused another packaging box and made a gift bag.

Used the lovely gray pp with gold foil dots .

A generous amount of gesso and white acrylic paint splatters !

Hope you are still reading..just one more to go ;)

I have used corrupt CDs,shirt packaging to make a round box.I also used papericious packaging for layering on the top(Not visible in the pictures).

All the flowers were sprinkled with sparkling dust from Dress My Craft,I loved how it enhanced the look of the flowers.

I have used Lindy's magical shakers to color all the handmade flowers.

Hush..done with the post! I hope the packaging from your stash too gets some makeover!!

Mixed Media Gift envelopes

Hello Creative friends! My blog has been quiet for almost entire month! Took a break from crafting but could not stop myself when I received LSG prize package, new Magical Shakers! Had to try them all, created many Mixed media Cash Envelopes.
(The colors look slightly different  as I could not get proper lighting )

All of them are more or less similar (batch processing!).Started by creating plain envelopes from smooth cardstock, a coat of gesso, followed by texture paste and then fun part, magical shakers!  Only after few trails I could guess the quantity of powder needed to get desired shade. That is why some of the backgrounds are very dark and some very light! Sharing the pictures along with products used.
