Blooms & Boxes

 This is my very first trinket box...ever...

I was a little nervous about making one, but really had a lot of fun with it. If you like making altered things, then you must join in on LESSology Challenge #2 - The Trinket Box Challenge !


This started out as a plain wooden box (from Hobby Lobby). I painted it black, added some patterned paper, and a red Prima flower. {Prima flowers goes with everything don't they?}

The inside of the box is lined with recycled dictionary paper and red burlap. I filled it with more Prima flowers.


Now it's time for you guys to join in on the fun!

There's a kewl prize up for grabs from Market Street Stamps. Can't wait to see your projects!
