It was a gift box that I made out of die cut craft foam (cutting out frames and stacking them). The lid was made by using a batik method: stamped design on silk with Versamark, clear-embossed, painted in with Copic markers, ironed off the embossing). The silk was backed with quilt batting and surrounded by a frame that was wrapped with dyed seam binding.
So, today's project is quite similar. I made another box, this time covering the sides with craft wood veneer and wood that was die cut with Spellbinders Edgeabilities (Classic Triple Scallop). You can read all about how I made the box on a previous post here. At the time I promised an additional lid for the box, and here it is:
The lid was made in a manner similar to the rose box above. The design (from PTI's Butterfly Dreams) was stamped in Versamark ink onto white silk and clear-embossed. Then colored in with Copic markers, including coloring the blue-green outside of the butterfly. The clear-embossing was ironed off onto kraft paper bags to absorb the embossing, and the body and antennae were stamped with black craft ink and heat-embossed. After backing with a layer of quilt batting, the silk was adhered to a die cut oval (Spellbinders Petite Ovals Small) one size smaller than the box. A die cut frame from the wood was treated with shellac to bring out the beauty of the wood, then adhered to the brown craft foam lid to surround the butterfly. Here's a side view:
It was a fun project--you should give it a try!
