Webster's Pages: Postcards from Paris II {Wedding Inspired!}

Good morning and welcome to a brand new week!

I'm here with you today to share a little altered box that I created for Webster's Pages using their popular Postcards from Paris II collection. It's a beautiful, romantic range and what event is more inspired by love than a wedding?! So today on the Webster's Pages blog, it's all about weddings :) Here's a look at what I created:

"Love" Altered Box
The inspiration for this gift box came from the "Let Them Eat Cake" paper- simply perfect for a wedding :)
I started with the bottom half of the box and worked from there. The cake-topper birds would be my main feature and the rest of the supporting embellishments came along as I worked at it.

 I just LOVE working with these vibrant colors and exquisite patterns!

I wanted to create something very dimensional and layered at the same time, accomplished by fussy cutting, foam adhesive, and paper L-shaped "stands" to help support the upright images. I also used a Blue Fern Studios chipboard piece as my backdrop and supporting element.

Products Used:

Papers:
Postcards from Paris II "Let Them Eat Cake"
Postcards from Paris II "Tres Belle"

Embellishments:
Postcards from Paris II: Green Fleur (resin)
Postcards from Paris II: Collection Pack (file folders)

Trims:
Postcards from Paris II: Mini Trim Pack

Other Products Used:

Doodle Circle Frame


I'm so glad you came over today! It will be a busy week on my blog- I will be back over the next couple of days with brand NEW projects like this one- thanks for your endless support and I will see you tomorrow! :)
