Graphic 45 Decorated Mache` Box

Hi blogging friends!
It's COLD here in Ohio... our high today is suppose to reach a whopping 13 degrees... but it's warm and cozy in my studio. I made a little something for my granddaughter's birthday...

I thought she might
like putting some of her little treasures in it.

I bought this mache`
box some time ago, put on a coat of gesso... and that's as far as I got. It's just been sitting on a shelf waiting for me to complete it. Today was the day!

The papers I used
came from my old Once Upon A Springtime 8x8 pad from Graphic 45. There were only a few full sheets and some scraps left, but that was enough to chose from and to cover it.

The flower on top is
Prima, the side crocheted ones are from I Am Roses and topped with Queen & Co pearls. The trims are from my stash, which is very much depleted and needs to be re-stocked. Hummm... I forsee shopping in the near future.
Just a little fun project you may like to try!
Stay warm!
