There are often 'things collected' when we are on holiday - so today I made a slider box to hold some of these 'things' (tutorial on Split Coast Stampers) when you open this box - the box slides out one end and a card slides out the other!
When I had the pieces for the box cut out - I stamped them with the larger chicken wire from the Chicken Wire set and sponged all the edges with Scattered Straw Distress Ink. I also stamped the images on the card part of the slider. Then I put the box and slider together using the tutorial,
I stamped the lovely palm trees inking them in brown and green, the cute straw hut over the sky background stamp and two of the sentiments from My Island onto a panel, sponged and distressed the edges and layered it to Monarch die strips on two sides. I adhered it to the top of the box with foam tape..
the waves that I adhered along the top.
Sanibel Island a few years ago. You just cannot walk down the beaches there without picking up the gorgeous shells that are all over the sand!
I stamped a panel to slip into the bottom of the box as well. I love the fonts on the sentiments in this set!
What summertime treasures would you put in your slider box??!
