Good Evening bloggers!! I will make my introduction very short. Today I want to share with you my latest project. I also want to share the goodies I found at yard sales today! Hope you enjoy viewing my photographs!
SHABBY CIGAR BOX!
I decided to alter this box in a Shabby Chic fashion, because of the paper that was inside the box already. It was perfect for shabby chic. First I painted the box white with crafters glue and let it dry. Then I hot glued the daisy trim all around the paper to frame the box. Next I pulled random roses and some heart shaped beads from my stash and started hot gluing them on the paper. The pretty blue teapot and coffee cup came from a note card. I bought a whole set at TJ Maxx for 2.00. I think it made the perfect center piece for my shabby box.
I added pink lace with string pearls glued on to the lace.
I am really getting some practice in altering these boxes! Mine are not as put together nicely as some of the ones I have seen on you tube videos!! I am still working with what I already have vs buying more stuff!
The inside of the box! I covered the bottom with paper I found in the cigar box. I opened the box up to look inside before I stared altering and to my surprise it had the original paper that they wrapped the cigars. It was so pretty, I decided to use it as my base paper. I also used the paper on the top of the box as well.
I was going to cover the inside of the lid with paper, however I decided I like the photo there and decided to not cover it up. I did put some pink lace at the bottom and glued string pearls to the lace. I bought the glitter flower at Michale's . I had used one these flowers on a previous project. I put two little rosebuds in the corners of the lid.
I added some of the paper to the sides of the box!
YARD SALE FINDS!
This was my favorite find today!! I love anything with Roses and I am really trying to develop a collection of blue roses!! This platter was 2.50. I fell in love with it when I saw it. It was made in England, but is not a vintage piece.
I can see these two red hearts on my Christmas tree this year! I paid 50 cents each.
This green coupon thingy was free!!
I thought this little gold clutch was so cute for 25 cents! I may do something crafty with it, I don't know!
I know Easter is over, but I could not pass these brand new never out of the package bunnies up! They were a 1.00 each!
