Page's Design Team Reveal


Today I'm sharing my project from Page's March assignment. 

I had October Afternoon's Farm House Line, which I love!  If you remember, I primarily used Farm House for my 1 Sketch, 6 Cards set... I think it's such a versatile line, it's easy to use and play with and so pretty with the typical OA colors and vintage feel!

I found this cardboard tray in the $1 Aisle at Target and loved the pattern - I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but I knew that I could figure out something!

I started off with covering the bottom, inside of the tray with patterned paper.  I wasn't sure if I was going to leave this as a tray, but I started covering the sides with strips of border punched paper and ended up turning the tray into a shadow box. 

I started treating the shadow box as I would a page layout.  I started layering papers and stickers and did a lot of hand cutting from the Her Bureau sheet.

I also used a lot of dimensional tape to add height to the layout and keep it interesting.

I put crackle glass on the handcut key and Pride and Prejudice Book.  I added sparkly tulle behind the book for some extra pazzaz. 

And my final embellishment was this cute, sewn heart garland.  I draped it across the top of the box and a little down the sides.

And, of course, the cutest embellishment in the shadow is Little Miss Stella! 

Well, that's it for me today!  I hope this project makes you rethink how you can use a supply, like the tray, and create something that you want to display in your home!

I'll post the heart garland tutorial tomorrow, so check back in!
Have a great day!
