Candy Box Crafts - 6.5inch Box Frame

The guys at Candy Box Crafts have done it again with the launch of 3 fabulous mdf box frames in 6 inch, 6.5 inch and 8 inch. The one I got to play with was a 6.5 inch one and as usual the pieces fitted together beautifully due to the precision laser cutting.

I started off by painting the entire frame with Paper Artsy paint in Snowflake. I then chose a selection of white embossed/flittered 12 x 12 papers by Best Creation Inc and covered both the the inside and outside of the frame.

I painted an mdf heart with the Paper Artsy paint in Snowflake, and let it dry before covering the surface in tacky glue and dipping it into a tub of Creative Expressions micro beads. After the beads and glue had dried I then painted the surface again with Paper Artsy paint in Snowflake, followed by a gently brushing with Stardust Stickles.

I used a Memory box die to cut out two mannequins and had great fun dressing them as a bride a groom. It was then just a simple case of attaching all the items to the frame (3D style) using strong glue. I finished off by using a small beaded trim around the edges of the frame  attached with double sided red-line tape.

The guys at Candy Box Crafts loved it so much that they popped it straight on the wall at the CHSI trade show in Birmingham today and I was chuffed to pieces hearing all the lovely comments people were saying about it. Gave me a real boost.

Any shop owners who are interested in the Candy Box Craft items, if you click on the link on my blog it will take you straight to the CBC website.
