eBrush and Teresa Collins - A Great Team!

      eBrush Design Team: Jan Hunter Week 12 Cycle 2



It's been a summer of traveling for me and when I saw these incredible papers by Teresa Collins, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to create this fun little case.  The file is from SVGCuts (Summer Holiday SVG Kit).


Cut all the pieces in the Train Case file using an electronic cutting machine and eBrush edges as desired.  You can find all the details on putting the case together in the SVGGCuts video here.  The file doesn't take long to put together once you've picked your papers - and if you're like me, that often takes more time than putting a project together!

If you want to add any additional ebrushing, you can do so now.  I decided I wanted a little more color on the edges and I add the trim to the bottom of the case.  I also added a bit more "color" to the lid.  I love to play with the ebrush.  I used Sharpies for this project, btw.


When I went to my stash of brads, I was sad to discover that I didn't have any bright or brushed gold ones the right size for this project... but hey, with the eBrush and a sharpie, you're good to go!  Her are the before and after pictures.

Now, complete the project with a few embellishments.  I added some chip pieces and a couple of tags.  You can certainly add a little more bling if desired.  The gold in the TC papers make the case look like it's metal -- not paper!  A couple of friends who saw this the other day were thinking I'd done some shopping and found a metal box -- nope!  Paper-crafting!

Thanks for dropping by the Craftwell blog today!  Hope you'll stay connected this week and next for more fun ideas using the eBrush and some fantastic Teresa Collins papers and goodies!  And don't forget to set up some creative time of your own!
