Let it Snow- Anything Goes Week - Fiona Randall


Morning All t's Anything goes week here on the Tando Blog.

Following on from my Facebook live over on Crafting Together With All Brands last week

You can see the Video HERE

I decided on creating another of the Tando Medium Matchboxes again using a Christmas Theme along with some Christmas Themed Tando Elements.

After assembly of the matchbox both cover and insert drawer were given a coat of DecoArt Chalky Finish in Carbon black. Then finished with a coat of DecoArt Media Ultra Matte Varnish.
Water colour cardstock was embossed with a Lumber 3d Embossing Folder then spritzed and sprayed with Distress Ink and Oxide Sprays. Edged in Ground Espresso Distress Ink. This was then adhered to the matchbox cover with DecoArt Decoupage Matte Glue.
Next up the Decoration using Tando Elements and a Die cut frame. Some stamping and glitter touches and a little Jute String bow with bell added .

I decided to create a little gift card holder booklet using two of the matchbox inserts for my covers.

The covers were decorated to match the outer matchbox cover. With some ephemera added for interest.

The inside covers were created using craft card and stamped in the christmas theme.
A strip of black card was then cut to create the hinge mechanism for the booklet and adhered to the front and back cover before attaching the Inner covers. holes were then punched into the covers and set with eyelets before threading some ribbon through to act as a closure.
A fun and easy project to complete and something different for gift giving.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read. Do come back the rest of the week to see what the DT has in store fore you.
