KARLAS001 Etsy DT Swap



The Design Team of KARLAS001 Etsy decided to do an internal swap and these are the three projects that I created for Bona (Keep On Scrappin). The only restrictions were to create three handmade projects and to use items from Karla's Etsy store.

Project #1 was a Burlap Gift Bag. I basically decorated the bag. I layered some lace and floral pearl trim on the front and back. A heart shape was cut out of the brown rosette trim. I cut a banner from vellum and stamped "friends" with white embossing powder. The floral spray is from I Am Roses. And the last embellishments I added was a button that I ran some twine through and a small crystal flower.

Project #2 was a Keepsake Jar (an altered fruit preserves jar). Many items were used on this jar. Lots of layering of lace trims on the lid. Several embellishments were used. The best way to know how this jar was created is to watch the video (link below).

Project #3, my favorite, was a Camera Box. This was totally a scraplifted project. My inspiration was from Maria (lollyrot-scrapbooking). I fell in love with the camera that she made and I just had to make one. So here it is. I wanted to give it a shabby chic look. The paper I used is DCWV Fabric Adhesive Paper. I gathered up all my pearl embellishments/buttons and went to town. Maria had initially created a flap for the back closure. I decided to make a box instead and created a mini diorama inside. I go in detail of the creation of this camera box in the project video (link below).
