Box Swap for Secret Sister...Hope She LOVES IT!!!
This little acrylic box is filled with lots and lots of hand
dyed embellishments as well as some little butterflies
and crocheted flowers and vintage velvet ribbon from
my vintage stash....
The box is wrapped with Tim Holtz Tissue Paper and
Tissue Tape around the bottom and I have used Scrabble
tiles and Prima Pearls and Prima Rhinestones to decorate the
box itself...Top view shows my little embellishement jars
I have made and filled with lots of goodies...
green rolls in between are the vintage velvet ribbons...
They are a perfect size for a title on a 12 x 12 page...
I encased pretties in the lids of the glass jars
(I am making sets of these little jars to sell on Etsy)
the embellishment jars are filled with the
embellishments that I have hand stained.
There is ribbon, lace, doilies, stamped tags and Prima flowers
that all match and are inTim Holtz Distress colors
Spun Sugar, Peeled Paint and my latest favorite Broken China.
This if my latest craze color combo...I love them together and
they coordinate perfectly with the
Graphic 45 double sided paper Once Upon a Springtime...
The Prima flowers were also kissed with a touch of
Ranger Rock Candy Distress stickles to make them sparkle...
You can look at some of my other blog posts to see
some other pics of some of the items included inside
my Swap Box. This was great fun and is the first
swap that I have ever participated in hope to do it again one day!
I hope that my Secret Sister will love this box as much
as I loved creating it for her!!!
