Seashell Recipe Box

Hi there!  Today I am sharing w/ you a recipe box I made for my husband's co-worker.  She LOVES the beach, so that was the theme I went with!  I used Melanie Muenchinger's new seashell stamp set Gifts From the Sea for all of the seashells on the outside of the box.  On the inside, I used the Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 step Seashells.  I only used the first layer, as I just wanted the shape of the shell.

For the outside, I drew my own palm tree, and created my own net w/ hemp twine.  The water is torn Core'dinations and then diamond stickles spread over the top to signify the foam on the waves!

For the top, I stamped the words Bonnie's and Recipes from KSS Adore Alpha on white paper.  I cut them into two towels and ran them through my zyron and adhered white flocking so it's like fabric.  I drew the umbrella to add some detail to the beach scene.

The card is just a culmination of the recipe box embellishments!

Have a STAMPTASTIC day!!!
