Music Is Good For The Soul and Vol.19 Giveaway | By Liz

Hi guys, I recently received the Magnolia DooHickey Box Vol 19 from Suha at Swedish House Crafts. This magazine is based on a music theme.

Using the largest die in the Magazine I made a Grand Piano. I die cut the shape once out of the card stock I wanted to use, then cut the keys out of a piece of white then black card stock. Then I placed every other colour to get the look.

Taking the main die cut I cut another one out of the main card stock but I placed the die with the keyboard section hanging off the card stock. So it was just the top section which was cut out and so that the top section could be opened up. I achieved this by making a hinge out of card stock by cutting a strip of card stock then scoring it in the middle. I then glued one half underneath the top on the left hand side and the other onto the base of the piano.

I wanted the piano to be a stand alone project, so I made a mock box section underneath then glued some pearl string around some of the edges. I added some music die cuts, that came with the magazine on the top of the lid. Then I used some leaf die cuts from my stash on the front edge,

I handmade some Foamiran flowers for inside the piano with another couple of the leaf die cuts.

I made this type of flower using the 5 flower dies by Gummiapan (not included in the Magazine).
