Shabby Rose Trinket Box

Hi there everyone… I’m back to work after my holiday and straight into the thick of the month end process, which means i;m too tired to craft or make anything in the evenings once I get home from work…. so I thought I would share a project with you that I made at the weekend…

It is a polygon shaped trinket box, I had bought a couple of them at the weekend from my local Hobbycraft store and I plan to paint, paper and embellish the other one this weekend and also record the process on Ustream, then these two projects will become this wee’ks DT projects for Wild Orchid Crafts.

Supplies used :-

  • Polygon Trinket Box from Hobbycraft
  • Echo Park Hello Spring Patterned Paper
  • Decoart Pink Lemonade Acrylic Paint
  • Versa Color Pink Chalk Ink
  • WD-00026 2 Metre Flat Back Ivory Pearl String – 4mm
  • Cream and Green 30mm Rose Leaves Item Code LL-00024
  • Pink Rose (centre) from Wild Orchid Crafts (will post the code soon)
  • Pink Pearls from WOC

Thanks for popping in 🙂

Looking forward to seeing those of you who can make it to my ustream at the weekend, if not, I will record it 🙂

    1. Thanks Julia 🙂 I only used 3 leaves, removed the wire stalk and cut them in half, the large rose covered the void space and flat edges in the middle 🙂 x
