Glitz Design-Sweet Circle Memory Keepsake Step x Step

Hello Glitz friends, I am so thrilled to be sharing my step x step with you!  It is girly, sweet, and very simple to recreate, my kinda of gift!  I am not much of a hoarder, but do find myself not wanting to throw some things out.  The Laughing Cow boxes are one of those things, I eat these a lot with a few crackers; a "just enough snack" that is not fattening!      

 Here is the Laughing Cow box in it's original state, this is my favorite one...yummy!

First, I painted the sides and a small portion of the top with white acrylic paint.  Them I rubbed it with a fine grit piece of sand paper, very lightly...not abrasive.  Just enough so that a marbled under color starts to appear.  I then added Tim Holtz fine glitter to the sides and part of the top, so that the shape you use for the top does not show any of the original box color.

I used the Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circle Die shape, the largest one in the set.  It fits perfect on top and on the inside, I cut thin pieces of card board to use for a base of each page.  I used tweed ribbon and glued two pieces of the card board base to each side and gluing to the inside of the box bottom, so that they fold out accordion style.

I then cut out the gorgeous Glitz Hello Friend Collection papers to adhere to each piece of card board and started putting my pages together.  I used The Hello Friend.....Stamp Set,  Cardstock Stickers, Transparency Pieces, Puffy Word Stickers, Transparent Stickers with Jewels, Cardstock Whatnot Pieces, Paper Layers, Teeny Alphabet Stickers, and Gathered Crepe Trim.

I then adhere each page to the card board base and my sweet little circle memory keepsake was coming together.  It is soooo girly and sweet, the Hello Friend Collection makes it all possible!

Here are the pages, showing both sides as it folds up into the sweet circle box.  The flower page is my favorite, I totally adore the heart flowers!  The original idea came from Vicki Chriman shown here.

More pages here, the page on the right is the last page of the book and it is clued to the bottom of the box.

The opened box, showing the first page with the sweet little butterfly from the Hello Friend Rubber Stamp set.  The tweed ribbon tab to the right, lift to open the sweet scalloped pages.

The top of the box with seam binding ribbon bow and a Glitz Giant Rhinestone, perfect for gift giving.  A sweeet gift for a girl of any age!
I hope you like my refurbished Laughing Cow Sweet Circle Memory Keepsake Box.  You still have time to create one for your friend, daughter, granddaughter, or even yourself!

Have a wonderful day, be sure to sprinkle it with a little Glitz!
