Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe Pedestal Box and Mini Album

Once again, my design inspiration comes from the beautiful Floral Shoppe paper collection from Graphic 45.

Each of the flowers and greenery was created by using the Large Tag, ATC Tag & Flower Metal Dies from Graphic 45. I used paper from the collection as well as plain cardstock and a gold vellum paper to make the flowers.

The pedestal base was created by using an altered cut file from the Silhouette Design Store. I inserted a wood dowel for additional support. I added two layers of medium weight chipboard to the base of the pedestal for stability.

The entire pedestal and base was painted with a combination of mediums from Prima Marketing (Sparks acrylic paint, Patina Effect Paste, and Rust Effect Paste), I also used Liquitex white gesso, and Craftsmart black acrylic paint.

The jewel charms are from Tim Holtz Idea-ology – “Baubles”.

The mini album box is an “upcycle” from shipping packaging. I simply cut 3 ¼” box section, preserving the lid portion. I used chipboard to create the base of the box.
