Love that Grungeboard!

Debbie and I are in agreement that this Grungeboard stuff is FAB U LOUS! We both had a wonderful time experimenting. It's so versitile and there are just SO many things you can do with it! The sky really is the limit. You can paint it, ink it, cover it with paper, cut it and give it texture with a cuttlebug...

Here is Debbie's project, and her description of what she did... Didn't she do a lovely job? Love those leaves! and I just LOVE the perfect pearl accent on the quillen flowers!

"I cut the leaves, the red border and the title with my cuttlebug cutting folders - then painted them with the smooches (for the leaves this was the only treatment they got) and then either painted or sprinkled the pearls over the paint. Then I painted some of the pearls on my paper flowers (in the kit)"



...and here is my project

I made this cute little gift box. I simply took a 6x6" piece of the red cardstock from the kit and folded it at 2" on each of the 4 edges, then folded each corner on the diagonal. Pull it in toward the middle and it forms this box! I then punched a small hole in each corner and tied it up with the black cord from the kit. Now, I could have (and thought about it) decorated each outside panel, but I decided to keep it simple so you could see what it looks like. I think it will be the perfect little box for a few pieces of candy, and it would be really easy to make in any theme!



Here is a picture from the top so you can see what it looks like on the inside:





Then I made a flower with the grungeboard, covered it with paper from the kit (and adhered with mod podge)and attached it to the top of the box with Ranger glossy accents.
