The Princess and the Peacock Box Card Tutorial forFrilly and Funkie Things with Wings
Hello, Friends! Welcome to another challenge with the Frilly and Funkie design team. Pamellia is our hostess this time around, and the chosen theme is “Things With Wings.” I think you’ll enjoy The Princess and the Peacock Box Card tutorial I’ve prepared for you. But first, let’s get the details about the challenge from Pamellia:
Create any vintage or shabby chic project with something that has wings. It can be butterflies, bees, dragonflies, whatever you can think of.
The Princess and the Peacock Box Card/Album with Graphic 45 Enchanted Forest
And here it is: The Princess and the Peacock. Is it any wonder that I love to create with these gorgeous papers and images? Swoon!
I’ve been having a lot of fun with my Prima Rust pastes. I love the way they transformed the Ornate Frame die into a tarnished gilt beauty. The paper really looks like tarnished metal, which is so very cool. And speaking of transformation, the image inside the frame was treated to a UTEE beauty treatment. Three layers of embossing, then cracking after cooling create this great cracked glass look.
Rust paste also transformed the tiny crown found on top of the mirror.
Custom dyed seam binding was created with a few spritzes of Lucky Clover and Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink. Once the ribbon had dried, I very lightly misted it with Ranger Mica Spray. Teal Sugared Botanica blossoms help balance the design.
Antique Bronze Filigree metal pieces were also treated with Rust Paste, Mica Spray and Vintaj Patins inks.
A Look Inside The Princess and the Peacock Box Card/Album
I started out making just a standard 7″ x 5″ top fold card, but my imagination got away from me, and I ended up with this hybrid box card instead. It’s a very fun design, but hard to capture in still photos. So, I prepared a short YouTube video tour so you can really get an idea of how the inside mechanisms work.

Truly one of the most INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL and STUNNING Princessy creations I have ever seen done with paper Kathy. I am just in total awe. It is beyond MAGICALLY MARVELOUS. j.
Hi Kathy, You have made a gorgeous card and a fantastic tutorial to help these visual learners like me. Knowing all the measurements, and how they put things together is awesome. this in crafting and sewing always makes a struggle to me( like quilts-love them but can’t make them) and this is what makes me frustrated. an wasting so much paper. I really appreciate your detail and explanation. so simple to understand. your a good teacher. thanks and big Hugs for a your talent an patience in making all these tutorials…..God Bless….
Oh, my, goodness!! What a beautiful project. If I may say, you have a great talent in explaining tutorials. I have looked at many tutorials but, never have I understood the directions so clearly. Thank you Kathy.
Thank you so much for this lovely comment, Pat! My heart is to educate and inspire, so you just totally made my day! xo
Thank you so much for sharing with us. You do great tutorials!!!
Thank you so much Marilyn! I guess all the years I spent homeschooling our children have not gone to waste! LOL I so appreciate hearing your feedback on the tutorial. That means a LOT to me! xo
This is absolutely stunning, Kathy!! You’ve added so many glorious details! It’s a feast for the eyes!
I watched both videos. I just love this project!!!!!!
Oh Kathy this is INCREDIBLE! So so beautiful. I’ve just sat scrolling up, then down, then up, then down. Over and over, trying to drink in every aspect of this wondrously created piece of art from the heart in a card!
As a Graphic 45 collector (I barely use it, because I love it all too much to use – go figure), I’ve been umming and ahhing about buying this collection (Enchanted Forest) as I wasn’t sure that it was all that ‘usable’ for the things I lean towards making … but now, after seeing your box card/album, I’m practically walking out of the house in my slippers to go and find it and buy it. All of it.
You’re leading me astray young lady! LOL (But hey … I like being led astray where papercrafting is concerned).
Sending oodles of love and squidges, to your corner from mine ~ Cobs. x
Very beautiful design and colours. Loving all the layers you’ve created Kathy and how everything works. Enjoyed the video. Thank you again my friend x
