Silly Wild Bell Box


I got this Bell Box with layer from Creative Cuts and More. It's called the Bell Box Set, and it comes with the box and two layering pieces. You get to choose from dozens and dozens of different cardstocks for this box. I chose Stardream, which is my overall favorite metallic cardstock. I also love Bazzill Bling, but it's about half the weight of the Stardream, so it's not quite as sturdy for boxes. This is a substantial box. It's a good design, made out of sturdy cardstock, and it will not fall apart! You can check out all the boxes available in this cardstock here.

I've had this box for months. I like to have lots of neat things from CC&M on hand to use whenever I want to. I just order them in colors I love, or that I know are versatile. Then, when I need a box, I just go look through them and choose the one that appeals to me at that moment. I had no plan in mind when I ordered this box, but I'm so glad I had it ready to go when I wanted to play in LodiChick's challenge!

All the words are Cosmo Cricket rubons, and I popped up the white panel on foam tape. The gems are Glitz Frosting. They are easy to work with because they are on their own little strip of tape. If you want just one, cut it off the strip. The flowers were kind of retro looking denim flowers from the Paper Studio. In order to modernize them and make them coordinate with this project, I gave them several good sprays of my Radiant Pearl Shimmer Mist in Caspian Sea. Just mix any jar of RP with about four ounces of hairspray, and you are good to go. They also smell good! I added some turquoise Stickles and a Glitz gem, then sandwiched a paperclip between two of the flowers. I didn't even have to add glue, the stickers on the back of the flowers are holding strong.

I made this box for LodiChick's SCS challenge, It's in the bag!
