Here we are already at my penultimate week as a Guest Cupcake. The theme for this weeks challenge is The Ocean.
I had an idea for this one which would involve me using a frame of some sort and I needed it to be fairly deep. I found this tutorial here which though it is for making an actual book card, I thought the concentina frame for inside was ideal for what I wanted.
So having collected up my cardstock glue and distress inks this is the frame I made.
You can see here that it is nice and deep and has a 3D effect. I found it really easy to make.
A rummage through my stash and I pulled out several items to use. And here in true Blue Peter Fashion is what I made. You can see a gold coloured basket type object in the picture above which came from a perfume bottle.
A quick covering of black paint, a rope handle, some netting and it made an excellant lobster pot!!
A strip of ribbon for hanging on the wall and here is my Ocean themed box frame.
The design team have been busy so please pop over to Cupcake Crafts and have a look at the gorgeous creations they have come up with. I hope we have inspired you to have a go yourselves at the challenge this week.
