Beth here, thanks for visiting! This month for Imagine If, we have some fantastic 3D projects, and I got one of the Film Strip Boxes, these are about 3cm deep so you can add some dimensional objects in.
I started out by covering the pieces in black gesso and then black paint, then I assembled the box - it was really quick and easy to put together. I did put the backing piece of paper in before I added the compartment separators, this was easier than cutting separate squares.Once the box was together, with the paper on the back in place - I used paper from BoBunny Mama-Razzi Range, I was able to start putting together the elements in each section. I used some stickers from the same collection as die-cuts in a couple of the boxes, adding my own touches.
The first compartment was a tag sticker which I punched a hole in the top and added some twine from PaperVine.
The second compartment is a die cut camera from the Tim Holtz Movers'n'Shapers, I used the BoBunny paper for this, and added a small glass cabochon. I raised this up with a section of a cork which I coloured with ink. I cut the cork into three to add depth. A piece of Tim Holtz Film Strip Ribbon crinkled below the camera.
In the third compartment, I cut a little alarm clock from the same Movers'n'Shapers set as the camera, also using BoBunny paper, and then I attached two little silver cameras from PaperVine with some of the twine. I mounted the clock using mounting foam.
In the bottom compartment, I used another BoBunny sticker, with twine tied around and mounted on another piece of cork!
I then needed something on the top to complete the look, so I used some of the new, soon to be released, Imagine If chipboard alphabet to spell the word Memories; I covered these, and an Imagine If arrow from the Arrows With Words Set 2 with some more matching paper, cut them out, and inked the edges for that distressed look.
I'm really pleased with how this has turned out, and you could add photos or memorabilia if you'd rather.
