Happy Thursday fellow crafters. Tamiko's assigned her CT members to ALTER a Greeting Farm image on a 3-D project. Well, most of you know that the "head" of some Greeting Farm images are about the same size so they can be interchangeable! This is what I came up with:
I made a "tag shaped" box and on one side, I took the head of Anya from the Spotlight set and placed it on the body of Fleur Anya! Since her headband has polka dots, this set the theme for my box, and I added some tiny black dots to her dress.
I made the box with two pieces of 3.5" x 10.5" Bazzill CS, scored at 3.5" and 7" on both pieces on the long side, then cut the tops to look like tags. I cut two pieces of black linen CS 1.5" x 8.5" and used MS doily heart border punch and then I cut them into 3.5" wide, then adhered them on all four sides. Before assembling my box, I inserted small eyelets on all sides (8 total) for the ribbons. Then I criss-crossed the two pieces and adhered them in the middle section, and pulled up the sides and tied them to form the box. The polka dot ribbon was then wrapped around the box to hold it together.
This is the opposite side of the box and here I took the head from Fleur Anya and attached it to the body of Hula Anya! How fun is that!
The picture below is an angled view of my box where the handle was attached with a flower and pink pearl brad.
I continued the design with the MS doily heart border on the handle along with the polka dot ribbon.
