Shabby Sunday #12 ~ Shabby Egg Embelishments

Shabby Sunday #12 1

Shabby Sunday this week is an old egg carton up-cycled and turned into a shabby chic embelishment box!

Now the blog post today is picture heavy, I took lots of pictures of the process along the way 🙂

I took an egg carton, carefully peeled off the label to use as a template..

I love the texture of this egg carton it looks a bit like fabric!

I took a pencil, drew around the outline of the label and then cut it out

then I took a distress tool to rough up the edges…

Once the edges are roughed up, the patterned paper is set aside till later…

next we are ready to paint the egg carton.. I am using Paperartsy Snowflake Chalk Paint..

I am painting the whole of the box, inside and out…

then once the box is completely dry, I’m measuring up the inside, to place some patterned paper in there..

I’m using a Stampin up patterned paper on this project, I think it is called Tea Time..

This piece of paper had the edges roughed up too.. then fixed down inside the lid of the box..

I have 2 x double row’s of shabby white trim going in next and I also have a little spring flowers panel, with the edges roughed up too..

I popped a couple of pink Petaloo flowers either side of the spring flower panel..

The outer edge (inside) of the egg carton also got a coat of Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste… to give it a lovely shabby shimmer

lovely & sparkly…  now on to the front/top of the carton…. Now its time to add the patterned paper to the top of the box, i’m using 1/8th inch scortape

for the top I cut this “wish” sentiment out from a journal card on a 12 x 12 piece of patterned paper..

then I embelished the top with mulberry flowers, buttons, butterflies and pearls.. and added some trinkets to the inside and it’s done!
