Hello there, WELCOME
to the Chattering Robin's blog.
Michelle here today to share with you an
innovative way to make a beautiful trinket box,
using a deep canvas, canvas board, a tile &
a variety of the FABULOUS Dew Drops
from The Robin's Nest.
The selection of Dew Drops I used
came from the following collections:
I also used selections from the Springs Blooms Dew Drops & Orange Tear Drops.
You will also need:
6x6 Deep Canvas
5x5 Canvas Board
4x4 Ceramic Tile
Texture Embossing Folder
Permanent MM Glue
The first thing I did was cut heavy white cardstock to fit
my Sizzix Moroccan Tile Embossing Folder, and used my Sizzix Big Kick
machine to emboss each piece.
I then measured & cut the embossed cardstock, to fit the top and sides
of the deep canvas and glued into place.
To add accent to the corners, I used a faux
metal embossed design, and added a light coat of
white "wash" paint to lighten the color.
For the "inside", I used a remnant of a vintage handkerchief
to serve as lining.
To create a top for the box, I began by using a mandala design stencil, along with a white artist marker, to shadow the design on the tile.
I followed by using a variety of color & shapes from
The Robin's Nest Dew Drops Collections listed above.
I also added a miniature knob to the center, and glued all into place with permanent mixed media glue.
I added some metallic Dew Drops to the knob as well, to match the corners of the canvas box base.
Using more of the embossed card stock, I covered the canvas side of the canvas board, and used felt for the back side.
Once the glued Dew Drops had set on the tile, I glued the tile to the embossed cardstock side of the canvas board.
To finish the canvas box, I added pearlized Dew Drops
all around the top edge of the "box design,
and a variety of colorful Diamond Dew Drops all around the sides.
I gave it about an hour for glue to really set up,
A beautiful trinket box to display on a shelf or desktop.
