Flight of Fantasy - #1

With Christmas done and dusted for another year (and PS....who else also thought it came 4 weeks earlier this year??) I thought I'd share some of the things I made for friends and relatives. You may or may not have seen these beautiful boxes called Fantasy or Stepper Boxes. 2 of the many sites that show you 'how to' can be found here and here.

I have 5 'tweens' that I had to think of something for and knowing they love all things blingy, I thought that these could be made into a jewellery box or secret keeper for them. So...after a couple of calls to Mums for colour schemes....the production line was ON!!!

I'll be gentle and share only a couple of them with you per some of them are very bright. All of the papers, flowers and chipboard for these projects were found at Alice In Paperland. It is my all time favourite hangout for anything crafty. The dragonflies on the front were another magical bargain find at the local "Hot Dollar" discount store.

I also want to apologise for the very 'white' background in the pics. When it came time to photograph, there was a very nasty wind outside meaning NOTHING was going to stand and be kept safe with any certainty. The next best option was one used. At least it shows the colours well.

#1 went to Miss 14 who had a bright pink feature wall in her romm and the words 'bright and funky' were used. BTW - the inside contrasts were achieved by using the other side of the double sided paper. The end result was the following.....

#2 went to Miss 9 who was "soft , pink and girly". Hers looked like this....

Needless to sat all the girs were over the moon. Each of the boxes contained hair elastics and either a couple of pairs of earings or a bling necklace with their initial.

I'll be back with more soon to show you. Can't post # 5 yet as it is still to be given....LOL!! Gotta love relos who live in the country!!
Thanks for stopping by. Have fun, smile and be creative.

Stuff used:
#1 Kaisercraft Scrapbooking Paper - Playtime "Giggle"
#2 Kaisercraft Scrapbooking Paper - Little Miss "Angelic"

Wow! You certainly went mad with the Fantasy Boxes, didn't you Lynda! But ... I can understand why! These are so special and so pretty ... and I am sure that everyone receiving these would have been more thrilled with the packaging than the presents inside! Who could not be??? Have a lovely day! xxx
