Treasure Everywhere

Since making earrings and having extreme difficulty on choosing colours, I now have quite the collection of treasure.

I wanted to keep them all together and safe but in a crafty way.
This is what I came up with...

Having never entered the country crafts challenge blog before, their current challenge 'Use Kraft Card' gave me a great idea. Country View Crafts Challenges

I bought the box in the hobby craft sale for 64p!

I painted it using acrylic brown paint, I then cut out some of my card stock and ran it through my cuttlebug with a wood grain embossing folder. Once the wood panels were in place I covered the entire box with a black wash.

The inside was lined using some lovely wire edged ribbon I Picked up from Costco at Christmas, it fit perfectly.

The index cards were made from kraft cardstock, cut to size and then stamped using the beautiful Jane stamp from Indigoblu.

All the cards were then pierced and earrings attached.

The final step was to attach a small lock I made using craft clay and a modpodge mould and gold acrylic paint.

Now I can keep all my earrings together in a unique way. (there is also spare cards for loads more, but don't tell Jeff)

Kraft card is great for that earthy feel.

Take care
