Welcome to the Creations by AR Design Team Blog Hop! This month the Creations by AR Team members are sharing creations made with the new Easel Top Box Template. Continue reading below to see how you can win this new template!
There are many uses for this fabulous template, I created mine as a gift for a friend to hold a set of A2 greeting cards.
I used the Silhouette Cameo to cut my template pieces from Bo Bunny Pattern Paper and Espresso Card Stock. The photo at the top of my blog shows the Easel Top Box with the lid closed, I adhered the quote/die panel with magnets so it could easily be moved up in order to have it fit nicely on the easel portion of the box.
To add depth and interest to the Bo Bunny pattern paper, I applied DecoArt Modeling Paste, through the Bobby Stencil from Just a Trace. Once the Modeling Paste was dry I applied DecoArt American Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Poppy over the paste, blending with a little water to add additional color.
To decorate the side panels, I created an internal offset using the Silhouette, and cut the template pieces from Bo Bunny pattern paper. To complete my Easel Top Box, I randomly applied Gesso over the papers and card stock, adhered Vintage Brown Seam Binding around the box, and added some Wooden Split Balls that were painted with DecoArt American Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint Coffee Bean.
