I started out with this sturdy box left over from a make up kit. I liked the color of the box and the fact that ribbon was already attached. Bohemian Bazaar from Graphic 45 was a perfect match.
To start off, I picked out my papers and took some measurements. Nothing had to be perfect, since I decided to embrace the colors present in the box and let the edges show.
To create interest on the top, I matted the title page of the paper with a contrasting paper that had a small print.
I used scor tape throughout this project. I love that it is ready for you when you want, and there is zero dry time!
Next, I started to play with the layout of my embellishments. I always try to plan things out so that I have balance with color, as well as content.
In order to give my resin pieces a little more interest, I used Vintaj Patina. I simply added it in a few spots and then wiped it off, letting a bit of the color stay in the crevices.
A heavy craft glue was used to adhere my flowers and corners.
And here is the lovely finished box, ready for gifting!
