Damask Divas Blog Hop: Skylark

Welcome to the Damask Divas Skylark Blog Hop!

If you just came from the wonderful blog of Stephanie Davis  The Gypsy Chic, then you are in the right place. If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

Hello and Welcome to my blog. This month we are featuring the Skylark paper pack. I was at a loss for how I should decorate my box, so I turned to Pinterest and found some ideas that I like. My project was inspired from others. For my project I wanted something to hold my PML Skylark cards. Here is my project!

I first inked the edges with Lagoon ink. I inked all the edges; front, back, sides and some inside. I mated all my pieces with Desert Sand cardstock. All my skylark pieces is some of the back and front of the same piece of paper.

A peak into the inside. My inked inside edges. As you can see the bird is only attached to the lid. I hand cut it from the same piece of paper and along with the tag on front of box. I used pop dots to attach to lid but foam tape would work also.

On the front I used the tag I cut out from same sheet of paper and added a pink Flamingo Dot to it. I then used Liquid Glass to adhere my lagoon zipper lace trim (love this trim)! I may add some stamped letters later on but still not sure on that.

And here is the back side. Love this bird on the paper. It makes the back pretty also! Well, I hope you enjoyed my project and now it's time to hop onto the next blog on the list. The next wonderful blog on the list is Lilian Yeh The Leaf Studio !

Hope you had a great time on our hop and checking out all the creations using the Skylark paper pack! If you get lost, just hop on over to the Damask Divas Blog for the full list.
