Chattering Robins 3D Box

Well this is my second installment as Design Team Member for The Robin's Nest. I wanted to do something other than a scrapbook or card so this is what I came up.  This project will be on display at CHA in The Robin's Nest booth #1656.  Hope you come by to check it out along with my first project! 

Let's get started.  I start with a blank box by McGuffey Woodworking.  I really like these boxes because the back comes off so you can design on a flat surface.

Next I decide which way I want to use the box.  For this project I turned it so the three small openings are in the upper right hand corner.  Then I use a pencil to trace all the grid marks.  This allows me to have a guide.  You can go a little over the lines and they are covered by the dividers!  No curling paper or pieces coming up!  Now I find all the papers I want to use and cut them to size.

Then I glue them in place.  I place the grid over the top just to make sure I have cut everything correctly.
I like how it looks so I remove the grid and start to decorate the sections.  I start with some stickers and great rub-ons.  They work really well and get a wonderful image.  Afterwards I add a touch of glitter.
Next I went to the trusty Tear Drops and made some very colorful and dimensional flowers.

I just continued to add embellishments until all panels are filled.  I will go through them so you can see what I did in each one.

I used a Peacock Feather stencil from Dreamweaver with Blue Glossy Paste. On the next on is a paper flower.  I added glitter on the feather and the flower.

Rub-ons were used for the words and the dragonflies.  I added glitter to the vines of the paper and to the dragonfly wings.  I used Diamond Glaze from Judikins to do this.  In the 3 small boxes I used Glossy accents and diamond shape Tear Drops to make the designs.  I added a round Tear Drop in the centers.

I loved this western theme paper and had a couple of stickers I used to give it a layered look.

The top portion is the flowers I made and the horses are from Dreamweaver.  I embossed them with Black Glossy Paste.  I sprinkled a little bit of glitter over the horses and added some black Dew Drops just for fun.  The black paste holds them in place. Otherwise I used Glossy Accents as my adhesive.

Again, I had some epoxy stickers in my stash and used them.  The leaves are some outline stickers in copper.

The top is a sticker and made it look attached with Dew Drops.  I did add Diamond Glaze over the sticker for dimension.  The leaf is just applied and I added some random "bling" just for fun.

More bling, a flower, a rub-on & Tear Drop for the grouping of three.  For the panel with the stag, I cut out the tree sticker then used the stag stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils in Copper Embossing Paste. Dreamweaver booth at CHA is #863.

And the finished box....
I hope you have enjoyed this post!  Happy Creating...
