I'm Late, I'm Late for a Very Important Date!!!




I am late posting for the Outside the box party! For some reason I had it in my head it was Tuesday ... sometimes I even surprise myself with my flightiness. I have been working on these boxes for weeks now and I have had so much fun with them, I was so looking forward to this event and then I almost missed it! So better late than missing it all together! And with that here are my ideas for the cute little soap boxes that Lisa at Tattered and Tarnished found and hosted this fun party.


Here is the box, it is pressed paper and has a little hole in it so you could see the soap.


I embellished four different boxes - I just had fun and kept on going till I used them all. 
First box









Second Box 
Lace and encaustic wax










Third Box
Button Box with soldered window










Fourth Box















I am sorry Lisa... I am coming to the party late. Thank you for having this fun challenge... it was fun!



Thank you so much! Please go over to Tarnished and Tattered and see the list of all the other blogs that are making these wonderful boxes. 
Many Blessings
Rebecca

  3. Rebecca,
    Okay you over achiever! LOL Seriously, you rock girl! I love them all, but I gotta ask...did you solder the hole on #3? That's too cool! All of the beautiful elements you used made each one a little treasure. And they all look like you! Thanks for playing. Lisa
    PS I have so much to tell you about the event & vendor night. I'll try to call after I catch my breath.

  7. No one will ever look at a soap box the same way again. All of these different and beautiful in their own way. I like the bird one best!

  10. WOW! I love your boxes, I can't believe you did 4, I'm having trouble finishing my one.
    And you're not late to the party, (I haven't finished my box yet). You have given me some nice inspiration to help me finish my box.

  11. Rebecca amor...GORGEOUS!!! I am having a hard time choosing a favorite! The first one was so lovely & inspirational, then the second one...WOW...so lovely with wax on the lace, and the embelishments that you chose... I love how that looks! The 3rd one...Oh this one made my heart flutter :)The lace, buttons, the beautiful soldered window and the metal embelishment piece...oh GORGEOUS!!! It actually reminded me so much of my Ita :) The 4th one...nature inspired and ohhh so beautiful! It is a good thing I had the flu and didn't call you, I would have taken you away from creating such a array of boxes to share with us all :) Your own beauty and heart comes through in each one of these beautiful pieces that you created amor! Ok...so as much as I love them all...because of my Ita...the button box...you have to put that one some where VERY special...like my studio :) Thinking of you and hoping these days are starting to get better for you too...Besos, Rose

  22. I know just how you feel, I could have just kept going too, these boxes are fun to do. You had a different style than I did, mine had a bigger window. I like your peephole boxes, I might try to go and find one like that.

    All are quite lovely and rich looking. Really gorgeous!

  24. Y'all just amaze me with your mega-talents! I love the one with the little peep window. Reminds me of the sugar Easter eggs we would get that held little vignettes inside. You might have been late, but you sure showed up with game!

  31. Better late than never or we would have missed out on your fabulous artwork! The box with the soldered window is my favorite (put a mother of pearl button any where within view and I'm sold!) All of the boxes are just beautiful.

  33. Beautiful boxes! Oh wow! You have such flair my friend!

  34. Girl it's truly ok that you are late. Your boxes turned out so wonderfully! WOWZA! I have a question though, I really love the patina on the solder you used on the one box. What solder do you use or how do you get solder to look really aged like that once you've used it? (email me at abbinme@yahoo if you wouldn't mind) I would love to know. Thanks so much for posting such wonderful examples! You so Rocked the challenge!

  35. How could one possibly pick a favourite from those 4? Each one is just fabulous, a gorgeous little treasure box, so beautifully embellished. No, definitely cannot chose.

  36. I love, love, love the last one with the nest....of course!! Also, the little window...so great!

  37. Rebecca no apoligizing necessary! You've made 4 and I've done 0!
    Love all of them so I'm not going to even pick a favorite. Congrats on your 1 yr anniversary. I'm so happy you started blogging too!

  38. Dear Rebecca, I purchased a soap box, I took out the soap and there it sits...You on the other hand made 4 little treasures, each one a work of art! I love the fact that you used so many different techniques, and truly made them your own. Lovely Rebecca, just like you. Love, Penny
