Shabby Chic Tag Box

I had the day off work today with it being a bank holiday and spent part of this afternoon finishing off the tag box that I started making on Ustream last night..

I love the shabby chic’ness of the Melissa Frances papers.. in fact I love them so much that I want them all 🙂  So when pay day arrives, I shall be scouring the internet to find online retaillers and spending my crafting pennies on all things Melissa Frances.

I got the idea for making this from a fellow Youtube user cabettsutubeuser and rather than me doing a tutorial all over again, it makes sense to refer you to Christina’s 2 part tutorial  .. Click here for Part 1 and here for Part 2 it’s a wonderful project!

Here is my finished box..
