Designer Swag Bag Challenge

Hi Crafty People!

Today, I'm participating in a blog hop using products we received in the Designer Swag Bag at the Creativation show.

We received some wonderful products at the show and in appreciation, we are creating a project using five of them.

One of the items we received is a Book Box from Graphic 45.  I decided to paint the box with some beautiful Spa Blue paint from DecoArt.

We also received other paint and pouring medium from DecoArt.  Go to this project on my blog for the project I did with those.

After I adhered a piece of coordinating paper to the top of the box, I added a piece of turquoise blue Rinea foil paper.
I love this set of colors and they were perfect with the paint and paper I had already used for the box.  I die cut some flowers and leaves using the turquoise and jade foils.

To adhere the paper and foils to the box, I used Beacon Quick Grip.  Beacon creates a variety of glues for any craft purpose.

And, for the centers of the flowers, I used Sculpey's Souffle clay and molds.

Here's the flower-decorated box I created with these products.

Thanks to all the companies who donated product to our Designer Swag Bag.  I look forward to working more with your fine products in the future!
