Corset Card – Key to My Heart

Here is another corset card just in time for Valentine’s Day.  I posted the WPC cutting file and template on my January 1 post that you can find here.

Materials used for Corset Card:

Tim Holtz Alterations On The Edge Distressed Doily Die

eyelets, black ribbon, black lace, black flowers, black gemstones, charms

Bazzill black cardstock

My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Union Square paper


Wood Box with an Irish Blessing

Wood boxes are sturdy and make great gifts.  Although handcrafted card stock and chipboard boxes are fun to make, let’s face it, they just don’t hold up as well over the years.  They are more for keepsake decoration.  On the other hand, a wood box can be preserved for many years and can be a functional heirloom.  For this project, I started with a plain, unfinished, inexpensive wood box from Michael’s.  I painted it with a soft beige acrylic paint and then covered it inside and out with layers of “My Mind’s Eye” glittered papers.  There is sewing machine stitching, pearls, lace, flowers and a Melissa Frances frame on top.  The Spellbinder’s Floral Oval die cut is used inside to show the Irish Blessing stamp.
