Mini Chest


Over at the PA blog this week Julie Ann has been making a project using a suitcase which you can see here. I decided to play along with a little paper mache box.


Left is the inside of the lid and right is the inside of the box. The box was painted in a mix of mocca mousse and chocolate pudding fresco paints and the script was added in ice blue.


These are what I made to go inside the box. The tags were made from some of the images on LP030 and stamped in timber brown stazon.


And finally, here are all the bits inside the box.

I'm also entering into the Artful Times box clever challenge.

this looks just great, love the aged look to the outside of the box. Great knick knacks inside too!

I love how you used the new Lynne Perrellas on this: they go so well with little boxes. Dear little vintage tags made from them too. I think these are going to be so adaptable with all kinds of colours and techniques! I like the white on this too. Julie Ann xxx

Fab little box Sam and lovely take on Julie Ann's suitcase. Love the use of string on the top and the little tags are sweet. Your new LP stamps worked a treat!

Okay kid - let's see what's new in your craft room. I love it - such a wonderful little box. Looks like a brown paper package wrapped up in string - these are a few of my favorite things - yes I am definitely singing. And look at the surprises inside - wonderful Sam!
