Today’s tutorial was written by the wonderful Patti Gilliam. She is sharing on how to create a darling little box, with a flat back, that allows you display your artwork. I popped my Witch up on four dimensional adhesives, so the box part acts like a stage for her to stand on.

To begin with I stamped Phyllis Harris darling A Tiny Witch in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and  colored her with  Copic Markers (Skin: E000, E00, E01, BV10    Hair: Y23, E97, E99   Dress: V12, V15, V17, V09, YG01, YG03, YG17   Broom: E33, E39, YR21, YR23, YR27   Pumpkin: YR12, YR15, YR04, YR27). The witch was cut out and set aside.

The box base was created out of black cardstock. Two pieces of Echo Park Mischievous Patterned Paper were cut to a 3 13/16″ length. The blue strip measures 1 3/8″, the black piece 2 7/8″. Both pieces were sanded before the blue strip was adhered over the bigger black piece and the edges were stitched. May Arts Ribbon was tied around the blue strip and the bow was topped with a button, tied on with a silver cord.

The layered paper was adhered to the back of the box with Scor-Tape and the Witch was adhered over the ribbon. I stacked 4 foam adhesive squares on top of each other so my witch would stand off a bit.

A 7/8″ x 3 13/16″ strip of Mischievous paper was sanded and stitched before it was adhered to the front. A sentiment from the set was stamped in black ink on white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with one of the insert dies from Fancy Framed Tag One set. The center was sponged with Pear Tart Memento Ink before the oval was adhered to the right hand side of the box part. Three rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones pack were adhered underneath the sentiment and part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl was added next to the sentiment and under the bow.
