Winter Fairy Book Box

Hello I hope you are doing good, I want to share a project I did for the Whimsy Inspirations Magazine Issue #4. I have a full tutorial on how to make this Book Box Check out the Magazine HERE, and I hope you can make one and let me know of you tried to make one.

I have several pictures of different points of this book, I used Snow Tex all over the corners to resemble snow, I got it at Michael's.

I used the Wee Image from Whimsy Stamps called Winter Fairy, she's available right now, I love this image with this cute little birdie, I colored my image with Distress Re inkers.

My papers are from Maja Design, these are a past Winter Collection, Still I love the Cold Blue and White tones.

The Sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, I love these Winter Letter Seals!!

I also used the Vines Die Set to sit my flowers on after I gave them the Glitter treatment.

The Snowflake Die is also from Whimsy, by the way did you see the New Ones?? Check them out HERE!

This is how it looks when you open the book, I filled it up with Peppermints, the vintage key was smothered with Crackle paint.

A closeup on the bottom of the box, notice I used the Stamp Music Notes from Whimsy, If you don't have this stamp it is a must have for your stamp stash!

The back cover of the book, notice the beautiful Design Paper and my Stamp Signature also from Whimsy Stamps.

A close up on my signature stamp.

Corner angle of the Book Box, I hope you enjoyed all the pictures I shared and hope you take the plunge and make one yourself. These are very inexpensive to make you can get a good deal on these old books at your local Good Will Shop, Garage Sales or even the Library and I think they make a great hand made gift, you can fill them any way you want! Thanks for visiting!!
