Travel Box

Supplies: Patterned paper: 7Gypsies & various scraps, Cardstock: Bazzill, Chipboard: K & Co, Stickers: EK Success, Others: Brilliance ink, travel stamps, rub-ons, embossing powder, Cuttlebug embossing folder, brown string, ribbon, belt buckle, wood chips.

So I got an Audrey Award for winning last week's challenge at Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge for My Darling card and was invited by Brooke & Sankari to be Guest Designer this week. :)

This week's movie is Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and the requirement is to add an unexpected element to your card, layout or altered item. I love the Harry Potter series of movies because they are always shrouded in deep mystery and involve some form of time travel. In this movie, I
love the enchanted Ford Anglia they got to ride in. Don't we all want to travel via a flying car? How exciting! And what's more mysterious than what's contained in a box? Thus, I was inspired by the movie to create a travel box. The unexpected element to the piece is the clasp I used for the box - it is actually a belt buckle.

I adhered 7Gypsies paper over a wooden box, then stamped various travel-related stamps all over the box. I also used various rub-ons and some embossing powder to create some dimension on the box. For the title work, I embossed cardstock, rubbed gold ink over, then adhered to square wood chips to form the base. I then added chipboard. As usual, I didn't have all the chipboard letters so I improvised by cutting the letters "a" & "e" from a scrap piece of patterned paper. I rolled up a piece of scrap paper to resemble a scroll and adhered by tying some string around it. I added a gold belt buckle to serve as a clasp for the box.

You can draw inspiration from this movie or any of the Harry Potter movies and link up your creations over here. Do join in the fun! I would love to see what you create!

Happy Saturday!
