Pitter Patter Baby's Treasure Box

Welcome
Hope this day finds you well.
I wanted to share with you one of my latest projects using Kaisercraft's Pitter Patter papers.
I really enjoyed making this project and was very happy with the finished item.
I have used many materials and it took me a few hours to put it together. 
 I started with 6x6" chipboard squares to make the box.
I then covered each square using the Pitter Patter papers, alternating the patterns so each side was different.
I then used the Tim Holtz Distress Paint - Bundled Sage and made a light wash effect over the paper.
 I used pinecone ink to edge all the squares & colour the chipboard.


 For the lid, I have used Dusty Attic Chipboard embellishments, flowers and leaves. Tim Holtz Filmstrip ribbon, mini staples and Decorative Knob. Kaisercraft Pitter Patter Collectables and paper. Some Kaszazz Washi Tape.
.
After layering the elements over the lid, I then gave it a spray with the Tattered Angels Glimmer mist.
I used some gauze to add a extra dimension to the design.  
After I had glued the sides together , I used some washi tape to hold it secure and this added another element to the design 
.

On this side I added Dusty Attic Adore Pebble, gauze, Tim Holtz filmstrip ribbon, Kaszazz washi and Feet embellishments, so I could stand the box.

This side I have used gauze, Kaisercraft Collectables, Dusty Attic Chipboard Embellishments.
I really love their small rose buds, hashtag words and view finder wheels.




 With this side I used the Kaisercraft Collectables, Dusty Attic hashtag word, chicken wire, flowers and leaves, viewfinder wheel and washi tape. I placed gauze behind the word to add dimension and break up the chipboard elements.

                                                                                                                                                            With this side I used some left over Dusty Attic - String of Hearts chipboard to cover the left hand side. I used gauze under it to add some softness.
                                                                                 

I used washi and the filmstrip ribbon on this side, then layered a sentiment piece over the top, placed a viewfinder wheel under the sentiment piece and then placed flowers and leaves on top to add extra dimension. I attached the paper elements with the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.

 To finish off the project I sprayed all the pieces with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Olive Vine.
I have not taken a photo of it but to attach the lid, I used some Butterfly Hinges from Kaszazz, so I am able to open the lid and place in little treasures.

This was the end result, which I am very happy with.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at this project and find a little inspiration to think outside the box and challenge yourself, as this was really out of my comfort zone. It really helped me to just go with the creativity and don't be so judgemental in my own work. I think it really is a beautiful piece that would take pride of place in any baby's nursery.
