Hello Beautiful Compact Mirror – TCK 19 – Sweet Sentiments.
So I decided to try something different with this make from Tonic Studio Craft Kit 19, and it almost worked! I’ll show you what I mean by that. Anyhoo I got the idea after picking up some craft mirrors from The Range. You get 6 for £1 so super cheap and they come as circles and squares.
I basically winged it after that. Feeling adventurous I measured, cut and glued my little heart out to make this folding case. I matched the “Pink Champagne” cotton paper with mirrored card from the Moonlit Rose 6×6 pack. I then decorated using the stamp and die sets from the kit, the Rose Triad embellishments and a little tickle of the Dusty Rose Vintage Drop for the “i” in beautiful.
All that was left was to figure out a closing mechanism. “Velcro!” I thought, but alas it wasn’t meant to be. The cotton paper stood no change against the hold of the velcro and basically ripped 😦 As you can see below.
Still, it was a fun experiment and it actually stands up nicely on it’s own. So next time I’ll skip the velcro and just call it a freestanding personal mirror 😉
