Hi fellow crafters..
I'm here today to share a configuration box that I decorated using some of the fabulous chipboard elements from the Creative Embellishments store.. I wanted to create something to remember the trip we took this summer to Iowa and Florida from Finland.. We had our grand baby Melissa along with her mom (our daughter) and dad..
Here is what I created:
I used a 6x6 configuration box, took some of the boxes out and attached them to outside of the main box.. I did add the pattern paper before putting it all together.. I ran washi tape over the edges to make them clean..
How about some close ups and some details of the items I used:
I definitely had to have a plane on the top of my box and then globe with a heart located about where Finland is (in another close up photo)..LOL used some of the small veneer Polaroid frames for my photos, film strip and the title sentiment Journey.. The large box needed a little something, so I used the small scalloped square frame, adding some tags to the front of it..
I made some tiny suitcases, piled them up high.. I also used some the stars I had left over from another project I had done previously.. found some cute charms in my stash, like the dice with the letters on it, T for travel..
These are so much fun to create.. I added some paper scrolls ( to look like old map scrolls), the pocket watch chipboard element for time to travel, cause you are constantly checking the time for boarding while at the airport..LOL Here you can see the globe with the heart attached to it.. Those tiny hearts are also left over pieces from another previous project..
I added lots of fun little things to my box to represent what we did or where we traveled. I used a few of the trick or treat bags, covering them with printed papers, to represent all of the shopping we did while we were in the States..
and there you have my very first configuration box, but it certainly wont be my last..
Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my off the page project for today's reveal..
Till next time.
ps. Here are the chipboard and veneer elements I used for my project:
