Double Sliding Top Boxes

Here are two more of the double sliding top boxes I made for the “Papers and Pixels” magazine article.  Instructions on how to make this unique box can be found on the post below or here.

This particular box was made using the Spellbinders “Romantic Rectangles” die and velvety Anna Griffin paper.

This box was made using the Martha Stewart Flourish Lace punch around the page along with beautiful papers from Pion Design’s “Studio of Memories” collection.

    MY gosh these are just BEAUTIFUL!!! I am a new follower of yours Tara. I have spend quite some time today looking through your past posts. What talent you have!! I’m amazed at the creations you have put together. My goodness woman!!! You inspire me so much. Your blog has become my favorite blog! I have it bookmarked and I’ve come back to it several times today. What are you using on these boxes as your “knobs”? Also this Pion paper, where can I get some and does it come in kits or bulk? And the pearls you use, wow… you use so many of them so I’m wondering where do you get yours at and do you get them in bulk? Sorry for all the questions but i’m just in awe and would love to know your secrets. =)

    I would love it if you could stop by my blog and become my friend too. I have just started a new segment on my blog called Funday Friday Challenges so every Friday there will be a challenge. There is still some time left if you want to maybe take a stab at this week’s sketch challenge.

      Hi Jo! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such lovely, kind comments. Pion Design is a vintage paper company out of Sweden. Depending on where you live, there are authorized retailers for Pion Design all over the world. I am one of the authorized retailers here in the United States and my online shop can be found at http://www.tarascardstudio.com. Through my shop, the papers can be purchased individually, but if you purchase $50 or more, shipping and handling costs are free so I recommend buying in bulk – especially if you love the papers and know you will use them! The knobs are all Tim Holtz Idea-ology products and can be found at craft stores such as Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. Same with the pearls. I use both flat back self-adhesive pearls from the paper crafting section and strands of round pearls from the lace/fabric section from craft stores whenever they go on sale. 🙂 I just visited your blog and it looks wonderful! I will be taking more time to visit and check out all your beautiful work and Challenges. Thanks again and have a great week!

    Hi Tara,
    Would be willing to sell some of your products?
    I love to craft, but I don’t have time much anymore. My mom’s birthday/Mother’s Day is coming up, and she would love this.

      Hi Melissa, Thank you for your comment! I am currently working full-time so I don’t have the time to be able to make projects to sell. I would encourage you however to make this project yourself as it is fairly easy and it would be so much more special and meaningful to your mother if you made it! 🙂 Take care! Tara
