Meet Sewing Kit!

Today, it’s my turn in the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs.  This month, I’ve chosen the adorable little “Sewing Kit” to keep me company!!

For a while now,  I’ve been running out of places to store spare buttons – I have one boring Tupperware box, but it is bursting at the seams.  When I saw this little stamp, I thought it would be the perfect little image to pop on top of a spare button box….

Now, rather than upcycle a box I already had (why chose the simple route?!), I decided to make a box, using a template I had in my Silhouette library.  I cut the template from Kraft card, stuck it altogether with Mod Podge and then left it to dry overnight, held into place with some small bulldog clips.  In the meantime, I coloured Kit in sepia tones as I thought these would blend well with the Kraft card.  A little Tattered Rose Distress Ink was added to reduce the glaring white of the card I had printed the image onto.

The following morning, I stuck the image to the top of the box, and then used a light layer of Mod Podge to seal the image.  A little ric rac around the edge of the top, and a little lace around the main pot and it’s ready for my button collection!

Why don’t you head over to Kitty Bee and add “Sewing Kit” to your stamp collection….?
