I,ve wanted to do this since along time was so short of time that I kept postponing it. This box's future was written, the moment it came into my hands today, gave it a new look. Lots of recycling and used stuff goes into it's making. It is also my first attempt to make a shabby chic project. Now chic or not but shabby it is for sure!! LOL. There is a second box also but that has to wait.
This box will hold all my precious keepsakes! Those stupid romantic things, small notes and bits of this and that. A totally recycled project, I love the new look. I,ve painted the inside with acrylic colours.
First I wrapped the whole box in a very old newspaper and the distressed it with inks-vintage photo, forest moss and aged mahogany.
Then some fussy cutting of CTMH paper and stuck it on the box. Highlighted it with paint and marker.
All the decoration that you see are all kept from gift wrappings or picked up from my tailor's shop.
Sentiments are from Fiskars.
