First off, I MUST express my amazement at the incredible trims that are in this kit! I was blow out of the water and used them extensively on all my projects. They add an incredible texture and detail to each or my projects, making them truly unique.
The first project I have to share is a “prize box”. Its could be used as a gift box or as a box to give a prize in. I plan on using it to store little goodies for our son when he earns a reward.
To create the box, I found a box with a lid that would be suitable for my goodies. Next, I picked my papers and measured my sides. Leaving a little room on each edge (the box itself is a beautiful shade of orange) I cut and adhered my paper to each side of the box.
Adding trim on the edge added that little bit of texture and color that pulled the papers together. For my topper, I used a few of the playing cards included in the kit, cut the little “v”s in the orange ribbon and made a super fun rosette out of the grey fringe ribbon, an accordion folded strip of cardstock and one of the cardstock stickers. LOVE IT!
Continuing on my obsessive use of trim, I have a layout to share. I'm totally digging these grid layouts! They work with any size or number of photos and you can mix it up with papers and other bits and pieces.
I love the variation of the textures that are in this months kit! BUTTONS! FEATHERS! SEQUINS! OH MY!
I continued to use pits of trim through out the layout on various squares. Included in the kit are these great little frames that happily fit my layout!
