Wings of Hope Card Box

By Hsimoni @wildwyoartcafe

Hi Friends!  I hope you've been enjoying all the CHA photo's I have posted on my Facebook and Twitter accounts.  It was a whirlwind trip and I enjoyed every single second of it.  I promise to post some pictures here as well in the next few days.

Today I wanted to share with you my Wings of Hope Card Box.

HS Charity Wings Card Box final

This is how the wooden card box started.  Isn't it fabulous?!


Project Instructions:

I began by misting and painting my wooden box.  This box measures approximately 6x5x5" and is a natural unprimed wood.  It soaks up the mist beautifully and you can still see the wood grain.  I set the box aside to dry.

I embossed 4 pieces of the craft foil with my favorite M-bossibilities pattern, and then trimmed each piece to fit the 4 side panels of the wooden box, leaving about a 1/4" around each panel.

The Wings of Hope die template set was used to cut/emboss white cardstock.  Then, I used the die templates as a stencil and applied fluid chalk ink to the embossed areas.

I used word patterned paper that featured black type with a white background to trim the bottom sides of the box.  I misted the paper and trimmed strips to about 1/4" x 12" and adhered them around the box.  I misted more paper and cut/embossed three of the Butterfly Circles and adhered one to the front three sides of the box.

Classic Hearts were cut/embossed from white cardstock and painted with a stained glass paint and allowed to dry.

A Butterfly was adhered to the center of each circle and the wings were folded up just slightly for a 3 dimensional look.

I alternated the Butterflies for a distinctive visual look.  The stenciling on the embossed areas really add a nice contrast.

I layered strips of the misted paper and the remaining die templates onto the lid of the box.  I folded up the angel wings slightly.

That's all there is to creating a one of a kind card box.  To learn more about Spellbinders and Wings of Hope die templates read the article.

I hope I have inspired you to get out there and volunteer or give back to your community and make a difference.  I promise you, it will be an amazing and fulfilling experience!  Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I appreciate you taking the time!
