~* A Shabby Chic Trinket Box *~




Hi Everyone!

Hope you're having a great week so far!

I made this altered paper mache heart box as a "gift" to celebrate The Shabby Tea Room's birthday! This week at The Shabby Tea Room, it is Week #53 - 'Party Time.' I created a shabby chic trinket box. I use Crackle Medium as well as Antique White and Metallic Gold acrylic paints to create the wonderful crackle pattern on the box. I added some paper and fabric roses, a bit of Melissa Frances lace, some burlap twine, and two stick pins I made.

Happy Birthday, The Shabby Tea Room!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great rest of your week!
*hugs* and Much aloha to you~!
Steph :)
