This is my latest design team project for Wild Orchid Crafts, it’s a re-purposed face cream selection box, which has had the shabby treatment, and tomorrow I will make the mini album to go inside.

This is what the box looked like before I set to work on it today…

I decided to leave the silver cover visible on the box and not paint it out in acrylic paint, opting to matt and layer it with patterned paper, pearlescent shimmer card stock, lace and fabric.

I incorporated the shabby rose pins on the front of the box, that I made last week…



and I also made layered up some new flowers, after being inspired by some Prima Flowers that I had seen online



There is also little banner’s featured on the box, one in the top left corner of the box and another on the inside of the lid:-)



Its been fun making this today, and I am looking forward to making the mini album tomorrow, be sure to check out my Youtube channel for the video tomorrow showing the completed project

  1. Hi Sarah, apologies for it being such a long time since I popped in to see what you have been up to though I have caught up on your YouTube videos. This is a stunning makeover which will look really pretty on a dresser top. I particularly like the bunting with wee roses on it – a great idea. Hope all is well with you. Elizabeth xx
