    I thought I would show you the trinket box and a couple of matching photo frames I made for the Elsecar Craft Fairs (the next one is on 15th & 16th October!).

    The box is one I bought from a local craft shop and I covered it with Springtime Vintage DS Paper.  I had a piece of Rose Red cardstock left over from cutting out a Top Note mat and attached it to the box top - only attaching on three sides - to allow a photograph to be slotted between the layers.  A long strip of Rose Red Seam Binding ribbon was gathered and attached around the top of the box lid. 

    The butterflies are die cut from Whisper White card using the Beautiful Butterflies die and then run through the big shot in the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.  They are then inked with Rose Red ink, mounted on dimensionals and basic pearls added to finish.

    The two photo frames were made using acrylic frames and were just covered in the Springtime Vintage DSP.

    Before I attached the DSP, I measured where it would fall on the frame and marked the centre front and ran it through the Big Shot using the Top Note to give me a nice apparture.  A peice of Rose Red cardstock was secured behind to show through the apparture and then I just added more butterflies.

    Hope you are doing something nice at the weekend.
