The Big 'B' Challenge - Rotating Frame

Hello My Silent readers / Friends / Copy Cats Etc ...
To start with I must warn you all that this is a picture heavy post + has a video too . 
Two things are mandatory while you go forward with this post 
1 ) You have to see the video , you will never understand the mechanism of it appears without looking at the video .
2) Please don't copy it { believe me I am too good at breaking heads } 

Recently a lot of bad things have been happening in our craft land which has totally made me sick . 
Friends who are actually claiming to be one are just there to extract some benefits . 
People are copying my work and proudly displaying on there blog . 
People who don't know how to craft are selling craft supplies and spamming my inbox . 

Now to the good part 
This post has been created keeping in mind the new challenge them the big B challenge 
It is a rotating frame .. It actually rotates on battery and a disk. 
It has all the ingredients of the challenge - Beads , bows , brads and Blings   ( One extra B for Button too :P)

This is the video 

In case you are having trouble with this video 
Please its a request - follow this link 

Now on to individual pictures 
This is first and my favorite panel 
It has Beautiful flowers from various sources . ..
Can you see those boutique elements used ??
The stamp used is Fiskars . 

The second panel has Beautiful flat flowers held together by the help of a Brad 
The brad used is Tim holtz fasteners .. 
It has a place to put in pictures and a detachable acrylic sheet for safety of pictures too . 
This one also has a beautiful cherry lynn die ( Butterflies ) 
It has few wooden look alike plastic buttons . 

This third panel has a rusty Jute Bow . It has some buttons and a sentiment from Unity stamps Co. 
I have also used the dies bought from itsy bitsy for the frame . 
In this entire post , for that matter in my entire blog one this is common that  is use of distress inks .

This panel has got some Blings attached together to form a curve .. and three half cut pearl Beads to compliment it . 
The stamps are from fiskars . The frame has been cut using rectangle dies from itsy bitsy . ( Couture creations ) 

The next panel has some place to add in tags . We all love writing so honor that request I have made this panel . 

This is the last panel and it has some frames cut using itsy bitsy dies  , distress inks  , tim holtz stamps and buttons . 
As cube is suppose to have 6 faces only .. I could't create more :P 

Here are few more shots of this frame
