For the Stampotique designer's challenge 'Outside of the box' I thought about using a product I had in my stash I hadn't used before, the Memory Glass came to mind, and I thought 'what could I make that was outside the box for me?'. Well making anything with the memory glass would be thinking outside the box for me. Then I thought 'what about inside the box', put Stampotique stamps inside my 'outside the box' box! ... Are you still with me?.......Well here is a box I have never made before, using a product I've never used before and with new stamps too. I think that might constitute an outside the box project, well at least I hope so.
I started off with my Ranger Memory glass 2"x2".
Edged 6 little panes with Ranger copper memory foil.
Held the sides together with Blue tack while I taped over them with more Memory Foil.
I stamped on the outside of the box with a texture stamp.
I stuck a jump ring to the lid of the box and attached it to my two Stampotique stamped images, Devil-ish and Framed, which I had coloured with TH distress inks and Promarkers.
I fixed the lid onto the box with more Memory Foil and now I had my double sided Stampotique dangly hanging in my little glass box. I found an old purple perfume bottle lid, drilled a hole in it, put a head pin though to make a loop in the top and attached a long chain. I stuck the lid onto the top of the box and now I had my very own swinging Stampotique dangly in my gorgeous glass box. It looks awesome up at my craft room window.
Here it is hanging in my cherry tree.
I love it!
