Let's see Elena's brooch and box:

"I have discovered a world of jewelry for myself  not recently. Normally I do not wear any jewelry, but I adore wearing long earings. However I discovered the new jewelry designers and even made some purchases. Several years ago I tried making the beads jewelry, it was a relaxing process. Actually I have never thought of making something from the papers.

But you know what, it is such a fun idea to mix the materials and to create something unique.

Initially I didn’t know exactly what I would like to create, and even some brainstorming didn’t help. But I knew for sure that I need to use Steampunk Debutante for my project. I never had any jewelry of this style.

But then I stumbled on the image of a mannequin with the wings and it has been determined quite fast what I need to create.

I combined fabric and metal flowers in my brooch. I wanted to add a feminine touch to it as well.

However I always imagine that every jewelry piece needs to have a separate case for it.

So I made a box for my brooch from the ATC box.

I covered it with the DIY Craft Papers.

I am sharing some tips on how better to cover the box with the paper. You can check my video tutorial for them.

So what I would suggest to all crafters is to start thinking outside the box, and try to imagine what would made you to be a star and to has your own signature at the same time - jewelry, this is the answer."

We adore these clever and lovely paper earrings from Alexandra using Nature Sketchbook:

Paper Earrings, Nature Sketchbook, Project by Alexandra Morein, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 4

"Paper is a truly amazing and versatile product. We are used to create cards and mini albums with it, but today I want to share something different.

Being on the Graphic 45 design  team is very challenging and once I’ve read the assignment for the current month, I was worries that I cannot make it ☺ But then as usual, you start to work on various ideas in your head, and finally come up with something.

I got the inspiration for making these paper earring from the internet. The technique is pretty basic and very similar to quilling. You roll paper strips to form a circle and then you just push it out from the middle as far as you want, in order to get a desired shape.

In the same way and provided that you make you circles large enough, you can create bowls, fancy shaped boxes, unique party embellishments, home décor items and so on.

The cut outs that I used on the earring are really tiny, since the size of each earring is about 1 3/8” in height. The butterflies and the flowers from the Nature Sketchbook were perfect for this project.

I also managed to create a keychain from the tiny leftovers and a memory frame by Inkessentials." ~Alexandra
