Coffee Filter Collaboration Box

Freshly new fallen snow made this box a little difficult to photograph! I had to use a plate and balance my box on top of it, but I wanted the SUN so I could show off all the pretty colors! The coffee filters were dyed with an ink pad, spritzed with some shimmer spray and then modge podged on. The leaves were also from coffee filters. It's a nice paper to play with as it colors up well and is also translucent like washi tape. Love how this box turned out with it's vintage hardware and music paper!

I was of course sneaking in at the last minute so had to photograph right before I left for work....hence the sun just coming up! Loved this photo so I'm sharing! Check out the silhouette of that vintage hardware! 

Here's a top view. You can see the strips of dyed coffee paper and the vintage music paper. 

Love the sunshine on the gold embossing power! So pretty! Can you tell it's a snapfish box? It held a bowl a week or two ago and was so nice and sturdy that I had to keep it to make it all pretty!

Want to see more coffee filter paper projects:

Laura has a cool project on her blog here and Linda is blogging about a tea rose journal here. Tina who is hosting the challenge has a super cool book

Have a fantastic hop around those blogs and a great Friday!

Hell(o) Love Card for THE CUTTING CAFE

Regina over at THE CUTTING CAFE has a new card out. It's very dimensional! In fact, it's called the 3D Shadow Card. You cut the card body and then cut a very small thin part that turns into a very small box to hold all kinds of goodness.

I thought I'd be clever with the inside and add a vintage metal key, flower, and a little vellum saying. Too bad I covered up the "o" on the hello! Now it just makes me laugh a little! 

The part in the middle is dimensional & moves, so from a certain angle you can see that it does say hello love...

It turns out like a little card book though. So super cute! I can't wait to try a few more of these and those cool circle sentiments that come with them!
