Guest designing for Color Me Miki this month was lots of fun, and everything was coming up roses with this "Oh My, Cherry Pie!" July kit! This little box was the first thing I made with my kit as I was instantly drawn to the beautiful papers included! I wanted to make something fabulous, unique, and most of all, easy!
I had bought a decoupage box at Hobby Lobby for next to nothing. I covered it in the cute bird paper using Tombow glue. This is not my speciality, but even I could do it! Then it was time for the roses. I hand cut them all from pretty Jenni Bowlin paper and layered them on top of each other using pop dots. To get even more dimension, I took a blade and cut petals here and there and lifted them. Next I cut the leaves out and randomly placed them around the dimensional rose, placing one on the edge of the lid for a funky look. I then adhered ribbons at the box top edge and tied with bows in front. For sparkle, I used the shiny blue stickles at all the flower edges and topped the center of the rose with a Jenni Bowlin rhinestone accent.
Congratulations to Terri as her July kit will be featured on Webster's Pages!
