Imagine That paper lace and a necklace

 Today's Imagine project is an altered jewelery box covered with papers printed on the Cricut Imagine with the beautiful prints found on the Blossom colors and patterns cartridge. I chose the paper lace cartridge to create a delicate pattern to layer on top of this box lid.
 This bird was cut from the give a hoot cartridge twice, one to cover with glass glitter and one to layer behind it slightly offset. The flowers were made using the cuttlebug quilling kit {daisy If I remember correctly} I highly recommend these quilling kits for fast easy dimensional flowers and leaves, I even took skinny strips of paper and made tendrils to pop in between the flowers.as far as I'm concerned you get a LOT of bang for your buck with these kits!
With the leftover pieces of Blossom paper I printed on my Imagine I made a necklace for my daughter to put inside the box! This is such a fun and satisfying project {I may have a new obsession} sound familiar? want to be enabled? OK.....I found the frames and glass inserts at Michael's in the stamping area, I used rub ons, stamps, and a bird charm to embellish the paper and create the necklace.
{My tip for the day}There are several ways to seal the glass, such as melted UTEE or metal tape, I chose to use crystal effects to adhere my paper to the glass and to seal the edges before inserting them into the pendant.

This is the reverse side of the pendant, it can be worn on either side, and of course I could have used a totally different paper for a unique look! Once again I'm jumping up and down with joy that I have my Imagine and my colors and patterns cartridges to help me! Do you love your Imagine as much as I do???
