Gilded Keepsake Box

I’m still on a kick with shimmer, friends.  Today I have a keepsake box to share and an accompanying video tutorial!

For this project, I got a ton of inspiration from Clearsnap’s February Color Challenge, which has a lot of shimmer in it and combines some of my favorite hues.   I hope you’ll check out the challenge this month and play along.

I used a brand new “Box, Cookie” die from Sizzix/Eileen Hull to construct my box – really easy to put together!

VivianKehKeepsakeBox_HiResI used a Sizzix/Brenda Walton “Camellia” die for this “splashed” blossom on top.

VivianKehKeepsakeBox_EThere was a lot of play with media for this camellia, and I’m really happy with the results!


I hope you’ll take a break from your day to view my video.  And if you enjoy my tutorials, please share my contadinaK channel with your friends – I’m still working on hitting my 10,000 subscriber milestone and would love a reason to celebrate!!!
