Two Boxes/Dvije kutije

In Uncategorized on May 18, 2012 at 8:29 pm

A month or two ago I visited the Megacolor store in Zagreb. I had the opportunity to get a small wooden chest. It was the first time for me to cover something that big and wooden with paper. And, it was fun. First I tried and submitted the box in two magazines, but since it was not picked I decided to change it a little bit and to post it on my blog. The box is covered with the paper (that famous decoupage technique – and I know it can be done better ;)… practice makes perfect, right?), I added some ribbon and lace, and on the top I had fun with the usual stuff – paper, pearls, gel pens, stamps… The inner part is colored with some acrylic paint.

[Prije nekih mjesec do dva posjetila sam Megacolor trgovinu u Zagrebu. Tada sam uhvatila priliku i kući ponijela jednu malu drvenu kutijicu. Po prvi puta sam obložila papirom nešto tako veliko i drveno. I, bilo je zabavno. Isprva sam kutijicu predala u dva časopisa, no kako nije bila odabrana za objavljivanje, malo sam ju izmijenila i odlučila postaviti na blog. Obložena je papirom, tzv. decoupage tehnkom (i znam da je to moglo i bolje ispasti ;)… no, kaže se: ‘Praksom do savršenstva!’, zar ne?). Dodala sam malo trake i čipke, a poklopac ukrasila uobičajenim stvarima – papirom, biserima, gel penkalima, štambiljima… Unutarnji sam dio obojala akrilnom bojom.]

At the end of my post I will share a card that I have made. A dear friend asked me to create a special card for someone’s 50th wedding anniversary. I used a fancy bag that I had and thought it is just perfect for this project (the grey paper with black velvet parts). I made the special box for the card too. So that way, everything is special and unique for this big and important day.

[Na kraju mog današnjeg posta podijelit ću s vama i ovu kartu s kutijicom. Jedna me draga prijateljica zamolila da joj napravim posebnu kartu za 50. godišnjicu braka njene prijateljice. Za taj sam projekt iskoristila jednu neobičnu vrećicu koju sam imala kod kuće (sivi papir s baršunastim dijelovima) i za koju sam smatrala da će biti kao stvorena za ovu kartu. Napravila sam i odgovarajuću kutijicu, tako da sve skupa bude zaista posebno i jedinstveno za taj velik i važan dan.]
