Need a cute something to store Valentine candy or cards in, that also looks fabulous on your coffee table? If so, make one with Craft Attitude.
A Masterboard is just a fancy name for decorating a full sheet of paper with one design, and then cutting it up to use in multiple projects. To create the one I used for this box, I took a piece of 8 1/2x11 inch Glossy Cardstock, and pounced several colors of Alcohol Ink on it in Valentine type colors.
I stamped all over the piece using Archival Ink and even paint with lots of different Valentine stamps.
I took a very clear photo of the Masterboard with my camera, uploaded it to my computer, and saved it as a jpeg file.
Then I printed the image off on my laser jet printer using the Decor Craft Attitude Film. It fits right into the paper drawer and prints right out just like paper. This can be done with any photo you have.
I peeled off the images, and although sticky, I still added glue. I did a few sheets directly onto Silver Foil Cardstock, and one onto Clearly For Art Moldable Film.
The cigar box I used has dividers in it, so I cut the Silver Foil piece to fit inside and adhered it.
For the outside of the box, I embossed all the pieces I used with a Texture Fade, and then glued this onto all the sides of the box.
I added Tissue Tape to all the edges and seams to give it a more finished look. I also painted four wood drawer pulls with black paint, and glued them on for feet.
The piece that I adhered to the Clearly For Art, I die cut with the 3D Flower Die. I shaped them into flowers like the instructions on the die show, and heat them with a Heat Tool to mold them to look more like roses. I adhered these onto the box with Multi Medium.
I adhered lace, trim, the cupid, and a metal drawer pull onto the top of the box, along with a few leaves under the roses. I computer generated a sentiment to go into the Ornate Frame, and glued it on as well.
Now I have a chocolate box made from my own art from the Masterboard. It's very easy, and a great way to showcase your work, AND...
...Serve Valentine Chocolate too!
