Challenge 5 at Hobbycutz

Good morning! I'm fresh back from my holiday just in time for the new challenge at Hobbycutz. This week our challenge is Mothers Day (USA) and we would like to see your projects made with your Mum or a special lady in mind. We are sponsored this week by Floppy Latte Designs, who generously gave us some lovely digis to work with. Without further ado this is my project
I chose to decorate a Hobbycutz box. These little wooden boxes are a lovely size, and great to work with. I painted mine with a couple of layers of gesso, then used distress inks to give the sides some colour. The lid of the box is covered with DPs in a chequer-board design.  The Floppy Latte 'Black-eyed Susan' is printed out in various sizes, coloured with copics, cut out and stuck on. The lovely Hobbycutz heart is lightly coloured using a chalk inkpad and small pearl beads are glued around the edge.
 
 
Inside the box is a mini album, made from chipboard and decorated to match the box. The wooden letters are again from Hobbycutz.
I really enjoyed making this, and as Mothers Day has already been celebrated in the UK , I'm giving it to my lovely Mum for her birthday.
Thanks for visiting. Please hop over to the Challenge Blog, check out the lovely projects that my talented teamies have made. Hopefully, you'll be tempted to join in, there's even an extra chance to win a  prize if you use a Hobbycutz product.
Have a lovely Sunday!
