Softpencil Customer Blog Hop!

Welcome to Softpencil Anniversary Blog Hop! if you are comming from Carole, you are on the right way, if not, why don´t you join us and start at Softpencil blog?

To participate on this blog hop we have to create something using a Softpencil image. This is my project
it´s a gift box, where you can put candies, chocolates or a pretty something for a loved one...
I used Come to my apple home from Softpencil (Elizabeth). The apple is printed twice (one a mirror image of the other) on pattered paper from Jaime, cut out and layered on red cardstock.
I trimmed the red cardstock around the apples with decorative scissors. The windows and doors I first printed them out on cardstock, added glitter with the help of double sided adhesive paper (I love it Lynne, thank you!!!) and glued them on the apples. To finish I added some tiny punched flowers and green glass seed beads.
The cute little worms, as well as the butterflies, are pinted on cardstock with different sizes and colored with colored pencils. I attached the worms with foam tape and the butterflies with beading wire (I strung it around a toothpick before attaching it on the back of the butterflies). I made the grass with scrap strips of green paper, cut with scissors and glued them to the interior of the box.
Making this was so much fun!! it was like solving a tiny living puzzle, where you can add as many details you want and modify your original idea as you go. Here are the rest of pictures I took from different views, click to enlarge them if you want to see their details

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did while making it! thank you for stopping by!!
