Silver Fairy weddingbox

Hi everybody,

Today I have a box to show you that I already showed yesterday on the Copic Marker Europe blog. It was a box I was asked to make by Sylvia Zet herself, so I hope you understand I tried my hardest on this one (not that I don't try my hardest on the other things I make of course :) ). Sylvia was very impressed with the Silver Fairy box I did a while back (HERE) and asked me to make a wedding present for dear friends that were getting married. I have asked her tons of questions about what she did and didn't like and shown her design papers to approve and this is the end result of all of this:
The gorgeous papers are by Inkido Design from the 6x6 Forever collection I bought those HERE. I used pretty feathers and butterflies, lovely pearl-swirls, Papermania Shimmer Dotz and square doilies. Ribbon, lace and hand stitching on everything.
This is a close up of the gorgeous Silver Fairy. She is as you may now for sale as a digi from Wee Stamps and as a rubber cutie from Whimsy Stamps. For the Copic Markers I used to color her I'd like to foreward you to the Copic Marker Europe blog where I listed all of them.
A side view of the box. The box was sprayed with a golden/platinum kind of color. The legs of the box as well as the lock and the key are by Tim Holtz and they also received a layer of the spray paint. The base is a simple cigar box though. As you'll probably be able to see the fairy was as always 3D paper pieced.
And these are the little pieces the fairy was made of.
The inside of the box, also decorated with the names of the bride and groom and their wedding date, just like on the top, everything was hand stitched.
And finally I created a very simple little wallet to go in the box where Sylvia and her husband Michal can put a little note or gift. The wings of the butterflies on the gorgeous design paper were given a layer of Stickles, I don't think that shows on this picture though.
The wallet was made using this tutorial: HERE I kept it very simple though.

Well hope you liked this wedding gift box as well. It was such a pleasure to make for Sylvia and Michal especially because the gorgeous Fairy came from her hands... no matter if I made this box, it's just as personal coming from her.

  3. Wow, wow, wow, Mariska! This is absolutely divine! I loved your last wedding box with the Bird Swing stamp, but this is just fabulous! Your paper piecing is truly amazing on this one and the shading on your colouring has such depth! (I keep trying but never seem to get the depth to images that you do!) I'm sure both Sylvia and the recipients will adore it! Lisa x
