Slimline Box Shape

I was wanting to create a box frame that would ship USPS with one stamp. By cutting the mini slimline white cs such that I could create four 1/8″ score lines on each side I could fold and glue the frame to the inside and be under the 1/4″ shipping limit. I made the bg by swishing the white copy paper text vellum through a yellow and orange oxide spray on the glass mat. Added black splatter then brushed on dragonfly glaze for shimmer. Sentiment and greenery were Silhouette cut then attached, folding and shaping the leaves for dimension. When I attached the piece to the box frame I realized that I had cut it too small. Rather than scrap the project I cut then strips of white and colored with markers to get a close color match. Once attached they created a very cool mat layer.

Thanks for sharing your time here and now I am sharing this with:
