Altered Book Box SCB Design Team Project

Welcome to this weeks project!
I have altered a wooden book box.
I have used some new and old items for Shabby is Chic Boutique on this box.

This first thing I did was gesso the whole box.  I then added pattern paper, which I love the brown and blue together.  I took the blue paper and curled it back to show a paper doily, a small fabric doily, a metal key, a small ivory rose resin piece, and a flat back pearl heart.  I then added a large applique along with some flat back self adhesive pearl trim.

I then decorated on top of the applique with some paper flowers, dangle trim, heart shaped wooden button, a flat back pearl heart, more ivory resin roses, an organza fabric flower, leave appliques, metal spoon, a rose colored metal bow and some pearl garland trim.

I then added some lace trim, pearl trim and resin rose pieces to what would be the pages of a book.  I then added some dangle trim and pearl trim to the spine of the book.

I love the way this book box turned out.  I hope you like what I have created this week.  I have one more project to go before my term is up.  I have so much enjoyed being apart of the Shabby is Chic Boutique Design Team.  I would like to thank Amy Love for asking me to be apart of it.
Thank you so much!!
