My husband brought me home an amazing wooden box from work.  I was excited but I had no idea what to do with it.  My favorite paper from The Robin’s Nest is Glitter Copper Butterfly – I love butterflies, copper and my daughter loves the color purple.
I realized my desk is seriously lacking in storage and pictures of my children so that had to change.
I wanted to experiment with my Tim Holtz Distressed Inks and Embossing Powder which I used on the Frame.  If you want to see the complete project please check out The Robin’s Nest Blog

Cutting the chipboard with an Exacto Knife to form a frame.  I used the Dusty Concord as the Embossing Ink and poured the Embossing Powder over the frame.  Using a Heat Gun set the Embossing Powder.  The spots that were missed I covered with the Metallic Copper Paint.  I glued Plexi-glass  to inside of the frame and added a piece of brown card stock to cover the back, leaving the top part opened to slip a photo in.  I added the paper to the frame to make gluing the frame to the box easier.  I added the Dew Drops center of the square to complete the box.
