Day 15-16 HomeSpun Holiday

Day 15-16 of 25 Days til Christmas HomeSpun Holiday.
My days are starting to run together as the time for Christmas day approaches, my list get longer and more projects and gifts to make get longer. Not even the making of cookies and goodies to give.
 All this to share one of my gifts I finished last night is this stationary box filled with cards for my mother-in-law. I am so glad it's done, and I love it so much (I kinda want to keep it) but I won't, it turned out really sweet and pretty.  I used Claudine Hellmuth Studio white paint and covered a paper mache box, then I selected my papers and Lee's mom loves old vintage story books (that we all read as a child) and this new paper line from Creative Imaginations IOD was perfect for this little box. I used multi-medium glue also by Claudine to adhere the papers to the box, added some pink trim around and created a little collage of papers on top, added this little white frame from Melissa Frances-created a little photo scene with the little girl and cute.
 I took the same papers IOD and created these paper roses (which I have created alot, but this style is a little different-I learned this decorative edge from Tracey Mason a CTMH sista), please hop over and visit her blog and you will be blown away by a wedding cake she made out of papers and these roses! I added some more trims, punched out some pine bowes and finished off the roses with pearls. Last step I hot glued some wooden balls that I painted white to match for the bottom of the box for feet.

                                                          Shabby Chic goodness...
