The Bare Elements line is paperboard, and white when you get it. Super easy to cover with your choice of patterned paper. We chose bright and happy Scenic Route paper that we already had: Crosstide Lane and Lockwood Lane from the Laurel Collection, and Mod Podged it on. Once it was all adhered, I took a Red Magic Dew Drop and went over all the edges to add a bit of color. After that dried, I added a final coat of Mod Podge.
The chipboard flower is from one of the SU! packages, and itís covered with the reverse of one of the patterned papers, also with Mod Podge. A flower cut out was Mod Podged on both sides and gently shaped, then adhered to the chipboard flower. A flower center was Mod Podged onto a chipboard circle, and then adhered to the layered flower. After adhering a funky pink rhinestone, I added Fruit Punch and Orange Stickles to the edges. The whole shebang was glued over the May Arts ribbon streamers with E6000. More May Arts ribbon was adhered to the bottom of the box.
Cute, fun project. How long did it take to finish it? Pride and Prejudice, a bag of Goldfish crackers, and two Dr. Peppers. . . haha!
