Boxing Clever


Boxing Clever

Hallo All!

We have had a super 
topic this week haven't we?

It is good to have to think
outside the box now and
then...............oh do stop
groaning...............haha!


Here's Helen Chilton to
show us a completely
different take on the
Cubbeys:


"Here's my Tando Cubbeys Kit decorated with 
Starlight paints and Kim Dellow stamps


Gesso the Cubbey boxes and glue them together
 then paint in chosen colours of Starlights - 
I used Jade, Canary yellow and Apple Green.


Stamp in black round the edges using EKD06.


Then paint them in using the same Starlight colours


Stamp and black emboss lots of the flowers
 and cut them out



Paint with more Starlights - 
I used Orange Oxidized, Bright Fuchsia and 
Dark Orchid as well as the colours already used


Wrap a length of copper wire round a bamboo skewer...


.....so that it looks like this.


Fix a brad to centre of flower


Flip over and attach wire stalk to the brad


Here are a selection of wired flowers.


Note I've cut the middle out of some of the flowers.

For the smallest Cubbey which I'm going to
use as a flower pot, insert a punched piece 
of board to hold the wire stems.


Large Cubbey. The stalk on the front yellow flower
 is made of thicker wire that's been flattened.


Medium sized Cubbey with a flower springing out the side.


Little Cubbey. I've scrumpled up thin 
green wire to hold stems upright.



Then you can arrange them all


as you wish!"


Materials used:

PaperArtsy Kim Dellow stamps EKD06
Starlight Paints
Ranger Archival inkpad: Jet Black
Tando Creative Cubbeys: small starter kit with apertures
Wire
Brads


Love this Helen
Thank you very much

Im sure I would be constantly
changing the arrangement! 
What fun!

'Til tomorrow

PS:  Oh dear, I have just noticed that
I have not been spelling Cubbeys right.
Di if you are reading this.... I do apologise
