Keeper of Secrets & Dreams

Jul 1, 2013

Dream Holder

The base for this altered box is Eileen Hul­l’s Box, Can­dy Draw­er die. I tell ya I have a seri­ous LOVE for Eileen’s dies and can pret­ty much pick her’s out with­out even look­ing at the name of the design­er. After I cut the box out of mat board and assem­bled it I applied a thin lay­er of plas­ter all over the inner and out­er areas of the draw­er as well as the out­er top, bot­tom and sides of the box. I real­ly like the sta­bil­i­ty plas­ter gives to this box and when dry it resem­bles that of a ceram­ic box. Once com­plete­ly dry I applied images around the box and sealed them in place with melt­ed white bees wax pel­lets.


I accent­ed this Keep­er of Secrets & Dreams box with lots of dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tur­ers…  Petaloo (flower), Jen­ni Bowl­in (but­ton), Maya Road (rhine­stone trim, tu-tu tulle), Tim Holtz (label pull) Ranger (dia­mond stick­les, per­fect pearls pow­ders, adiron­dack metal­lic gold paint, white bees wax pel­lets) and Sizzix (Eileen Hull, Doily Lace Medal­lion die).

Box with Open Drawe

The box is attached to a vin­tage wood­en spool on the bot­tom to give it some height. I just could not bring myself to trim off any of the tu-tu tulle attached around the bot­tom edge. I had to find some­thing to give the box a lit­tle lift and the spool worked per­fect­ly. I had so much fun cre­at­ing my lit­tle Keep­er of Secrets and Dreams box and have ideas to cre­ate lots more. The pos­si­bil­i­ties are tru­ly end­less.
