Video Tutorial: Creating a Keepsake Box {Bo Bunny - Madeleine}


Hi Everyone!  It's my pleasure today to share my latest project using some beautiful new products from Bo Bunny!  I just LOVE the new stickable stencils, it's so cool the way they keep the stencil in place as you are working and allows you to move and re-adjust, all the while keeping that tacky backing so that your designs always come out perfect!



I thought you might enjoy watching a step by step tutorial in which I show, start to finish how I created this little keepsake book/box using the gorgeous new Madeleine collection with some of the new Bo Bunny mixed media products (Pearlescents and Shimmer Sprays) and stencils.  Just click the arrow above and enjoy!


I thought I would share a few close-up shots of the project that you can enjoy at your leisure.  The photo above lets you see how I used the stencils and texture paste on the cover and spine of the book.  I used the Gold Shimmer Spray to help the texture design stand out.


I like my projects to look pretty inside and out, so I lined my box with some of the beautiful papers from the Madeleine collection (and added a butterfly cut out from Primrose collection).


Another new product that I absolutely LOVE is the Wood Shapes! For my box cover I used a few of the elegant designs from the new Iron Works Wood Shapes packet.  I finished the look with some of the lovely pearls from the jewel packets.


Bo Bunny products used on this project:
Patterned Paper: Madeleine/Grace, Happiness, Madeleine, Symmetry, 
6x6 Paper Pad:  Primrose
Pearlescents: Blush, Island Mist, Brilliant Blue
Glimmer Spray: Gold
Stamps: Distressed Textures, It is Written
Stencil: Bliss Stickable Stencil
Iron Works Wood Shapes
Jewels: Frosting Flourish Jewels, Primrose Jewel packet
Flowers:  Madeleine Petals, Blush Zinnias 
Lace: Blush

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, your kind words and feedback always make my day!  I hope you enjoyed my project today and hope that you give these beautiful new Bo Bunny products a try!

Beautifully demonstrated project - love all the soft colours and feminine details. I'm a big fan of using texture in a project and appreciated learning more about how you achieve the layers with stamps & stencils. I'm always afraid of doing too much and taking a chance of messing things up; I need to be more fearless. TFS, Fran

Hi,
This is awesome. Exactly what I have been looking for. I've been toying with the idea of making each of my girls a memory box and floundering on how to start... Thank you so much for this.
