Ding Dong - Paper Crafting

Hi again

I know this is not Day 2 on the remodel, but after starting the draft and reading it over, it was pretty much boring. Like watching paint dry.  Very quickly I scraped, patched and painted and the room was completed in time for the Easter Holiday.  If you want I'll post some picture of the completed room, just leave a message.  btw - Fun Fact about Popcorn Ceilings - There are no fun facts.  This stuff must have been invented by the devil.

On to something really fun. During our move in I was moving an old corner book case up stairs, (Think of that Friends episode when they were moving the sofa up to Ross's apartment, pivot!) and I bumped the door bell cover and it fell off and broke.  Which wasn't so bad just we hadn't planned on replacing the door bell just yet.  btw the bell has nice tone.

Anyway a had crafted a quick cover for the winter holidays and now that spring has sprung, I wanted something a little more in keeping with the season.  So I fashioned a new box, by scoring some paper from the DCWV Lemon Flower Stack and lining it with chip board.  Cut some tattered florals from other paper in the stack. Used one of Tim long strip dies to cut the boarder detail, and fixed everything in place.

The second build was better than the first and now that I have everything worked out, I think we make covers for all seasons.  No need for a new door bell.
 Here it is finished and in place.
