Stamperia Voyage Gift Box

I am excited to share an altered box using the Stamperia 12 x 12 Voyages Fantastiques paper collection.  The Rubber Buggy carries these major name-brand craft supplies with fast delivery and wonderful customer services.
Stamperia 12 x 12 Voyages Fantastiques paper collection
 I have so much fun making these gift boxes like this Steam Puck gift box that will be given to my grandson's birthday.  The sentiment is in the inside of the box and this will be filled with gifts and money.
I added Prima Marketing acrylic paints and waxes on the metal embellishments and used  a hot glue gun to adhere the metal embellishment collections of Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Metal Mini Gears and Prima Marketing Finnabair Mechanical hardware to the box. THe gorgeous key hole is the Graphic 45 Ornate Metal Key Hole embellishment.   The watch is from the Tim Holtz -Ideao-Ology Metal Watch set.  I used the Beacon 3 n 1 Advanced glue to glue the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Ephemera Expedition signs on the top of the box.  A few embellishments like the blue stone and corner were found in my stash.  I like going to thrift store and garage sales to pick up some crazy embellishments that I might find useful in the future like this gift box.

I used the Prima Marketing Finnabiar Art Alchemy Metallique Acrylic paints and Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Metallique waxes on the metal embellishments.  I used the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Alpha Time Chipboard Letters for the name.

Back of box

I typed the sentiment on brown paper and sponged distress inks from Ranger Antique Linen ink around the edges.  I used left over pieces of the Stamperia paper and glued it on the inside of the box and used Beacon 3 n 1 Advance glue to glue the sentiment.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Let's Craft and Create:  Challenge #148 - You're The Man
Frilly and Funkie:  Embellishments, Trinkets and Trim

I hope I have inspired you try out these products available at The Rubber Buggy on-line store.  My cards and projects are always posted on Saturday.  Keep watching and thank you so much for those wonderful comments as well as suggestions. 
Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Oh Nancy you've really brought the steampunk background to life with your clever choice of embellishments that compliment it so well. The key as the train funnel is particularly wonderful. I bet Austin will love receiving it. Thank you for joining us at Frilly and Funkie xx
