My second special order this week has kept me busy for a couple of days. This one came from my daughter. She’s part of the Pit Orchestra for the musical this weekend. They’re doing Roger and Hammerstein’s Cinderella and she wanted something special to give to her fellow Pit members. Ohh mo-om! Of course! Sure! No problem! Something Cinderella themed in two days — I’ll figure something out. I did! After looking at pictures of Cinderella’s carriage, I pulled out my favorite Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit and started playing. It can be anything you know!
Here’s Cinderella’s carriage — theartfulinker version.
I used Soft Sky cardstock and Basic Gray ink.
After cutting the box with the Curvy Keepsake Thinlit, I used the Extra Large Oval punch to cut holes for windows.
The holes are covered on the inside with Vellum cardstock. I like that it’s translucent rather than transparent. That way the treat doesn’t take away from the exterior of the box.
The wheels were stamped with an image from Balloon Celebration then punched with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch.
Using my Soft Sky Stampin’ Write Marker, I drew lines on all four sides of the box. Then, I went over the lines with my Two Way Glue Pen and sprinkled them with Dazzling Diamonds. It added a nice touch of glitz.
I added a tongue, cut with the Word Window Punch, to the front. It seemed a little naked without it.
Once the box was filled, I tied up the top with a piece of 1/8″ Silver Ribbon.
The 35 Curvy Keepsake carriages will have been handed out tonight.
My daughter was so pleased with them! And that’s all that really counts.
Thanks for stopping by.
