Rowlux® Illusion Film Blog Hop

Rowlux® Illusion Film is absolutely dazzling!  When I opened my sample package for the hop, I was mesmerized by the dimensional illusion the brightly colored sheets.  The official names of the patterns are Moire, 3D, Sea Glass and Serpentine, but they reminded me of liquid gold, flowing water, pearlized satin, shimmering alligator skin.....  purple, dark blue, gold, emerald green, hot pink, lime green....and more. So many colors and different “textures” to choose from it’s mind boggling. 

Rowlux® Illusion Film is made in the USA and comes in a diverse range of spectacular eye-catching colors and patterns.  This revolutionary material has been utilized in award winning point of purchase displays, packaging, signage, artwork, footwear, lighting, interior design, retail display fixtures and beyond. Our new frontier is the craft industry! There's absolutely nothing like it on the market. These durable, translucent, 12" x 12" polycarbonate sheets add instant pizzazz to craft projects, seasonal accents, party decorations, scrapbooks, greeting cards, jewelry, furniture, frames, gifts, favors, accessories, art and DIY home decor projects. Easily cut with scissors, Rowlux® is also the perfect material for scoring, folding, embossing and die cutting. The creative possibilities are endless. This innovative and inspiring new craft material manipulates light to create dazzling visual effects. The illusion of depth and motion is the result of thousands of tiny parabolic lenses that are molded into the surface of both sides of the material. These lenses create a pattern of light reflection and refraction resulting in stunningly brilliant optical effects.

To instantly add "POP" and "WOW" to your projects, just add Rowlux®!

I have designed multiple projects in the week since receiving my box, and will be sharing more of them in the coming weeks.  Today, I’m sharing this liquid gold gift box, perfect for presenting a set of handmade jewelry (find out how I created this set here) to a special friend.

I die cut the box from the Gold Moire Rowlux® Illusion Film with the Sizzix® Big Shot™ and Eileen Hull's Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die - Box, Triangle.  The earrings and pendant were wrapped in gold tissue paper, and then inserted into the box.  "Happy Birthday" was stamped onto a piece of the gold Rowlux® with the Palette inkpad, then mounted to the bottom front
of the box using Glue Dots® Glue Line® on the left and right edges.  A strip of he black & gold ribbon was added as an accent piece above the Happy Birthday, and was used to tie the box shut at the top/opening.
