New Challenge #70 at Glitter n Sparkle

Hi everyone
Yep Sunday again,
and I'm still waiting for my Nephew 
it now official he's over cooking lol,
my poor Sister-in-law.

This week because of the Theme, 
I though I would make myself a little Sewing Box 
to hold all the little nick-nacks 
that we all seem to accumulate for sewing.

Anyway here is my project for this week:-

The Theme at Glitter n
Sparkle is:-
Use Buttons

Our Sponsors this week are:-

The Stamping Chef who are offering
3 Images from their store

Digi Darla who are offering
5 Images from their store

Fred She Said who are offering
$10 Gift Certificate for their store

Flourish With A Bling who are offering
AUD $15 Gift Certificate for their store

My project for this week is:-

Pincushion with Thimble digi stamp 
from Digi Darla (one of our sponsors)

I used a Template for a Chest Box 
(Templates & More - Dreamees),
which I cut out of Cream Pearlised Card
(Ross Papers)
and assembled.
I then used Small Rose Paper, 
(Damask Rose Designer Paper Collection - 
exclusive to "Cardmaking & Papercrafting)
which I cut to fit inside all the surfaces
of the Chest.

I coloured in my Image using 
my Promarker Pens.

Using the second Smallest Die
of the Rectangle Parenthesis 2 (5 pk)
Die-Cut out my Image.
I then cut out the centre of the Pin Cushion
and using a scrap of Purple Material
Placed it behind the Image and
padded it out with Wadding
(and boy did I have fun sticking this on the lid, lol).

Using 3cm wide Cream Lace
I wrapped it around the bottom of all 
of the side pieces of Rose Paper, 
before sticking them on the Chest.

To make the Needle and Pins more realistic,
I added Holographic Silver Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
and Self-adhesive Flat-backed Pearls
to the ends of the Pins.

I then added a Self-adhesive Paper Button Boarder
around the edge of the Lid
and Hand-made a Bow out of a 
piece of Cream Satin Ribbon
for the side of the Chest.

And finally I added a collection of Buttons 
to the Lid at the bottom of the Image
(All buttons from my Sewing Kit).
